Qualifications & Experience

I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse in English (with an emphasis in rhetoric and writing) and Philosophy. In May 2017, I received my Master's degree from Harvard University in Religious Studies, concentrating in particular on the intersection of religion, ethics, and politics. Prior to starting graduate studies, I worked as a Communications Specialist for a tech start-up in Madison, WI. During this time, I also worked as a tutor, helping mostly high school students in the Madison area. While I am capable of tutoring anything within the humanities, I excel most as a tutor in English and writing. I have published several academic papers, won poetry contests and playwright awards, and I am a certified writer and editor for the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors.

But enough of the boring stuff! I love football. Born and raised in Wisconsin, you'll find me watching the Badgers on Saturdays and the Packers on Sundays. I think Aaron Rodgers is the best current quarterback, but I'm also willing to admit that Tom Brady just might be the G.O.A.T. I play the guitar, mostly acoustic, and dabble with a few other instruments as well. When it comes to my career, I have a broad range of talents and interests, so I'm taking a little time to figure out the next step. In the mean time, I have an open and flexible schedule, which will be easily adaptable to yours, and lots of free time to prepare for sessions so that you can get the absolute most out of our time together. I can work mornings, afternoons, or evenings - as long there's a bit of a heads up!

Nick is a writing wizard! He can make anything sound interesting. He helped me so much with my academic writing skills, which needed major improvement upon entering college. He helped me with my understanding of grammar, with constructing logical arguments and creating outlines, finding good evidence, and with tips on how to make it flow better and interesting to read. If you need help with anything that involves writing, especially analytical/essay writing, Nick is the guy! Highly recommended!

I worked with Nick for pretty much the whole school year, as I needed lots of help in a difficult high school English class. He's very knowledgeable about books, writing, all that stuff.. plus, he's super nice and easy to work with. He pushes you and expects you to try your best but isn't super intense or anything like that. I have always had trouble with English so I've had a couple different tutors for it.. Nick was for sure the best one though.

Nick is great. He knows his stuff, he's easy going, patient, and working with him was a really good experience. He was a huge help with my essays for college applications (which ended up being successful), and made me a much better writer in general in only a couple of sessions. Definitely recommend him!

Nick helped me study for final exams in a bunch of different subjects. He basically helped me with a lot of different study strategies that help you retain information better, and helped me organize and prioritize my materials. He's a cool guy and has a good sense of humor, so working with him made studying not incredibly stressful and a more enjoyable experience. He also knows a lot about sports, especially football, so it was nice to talk about something other than school before and after sessions. Nick is an awesome guy and awesome tutor!
