about nerdy.nel

[NOTE: I am tinkering with the site; I am moving most blog posts and pages to a new subdomain, so they’ll be offline temporarily. nerdynel.me will now be dedicated mostly to my Tutoring Service, while the subdomain will host my personal blog and pages.]

nerdy.nel, a bilingual native of The Bronx, is a computer engineer, professional tutor, and transit advocate.

[…bilingual?]

Inglés e español – soy parte dominicano y parte puertorriqueño. ¡Además, inglés es mi segunda idioma!

[…computer engineer?]

My day job – mostly on the business side of the fence.

[…professional tutor?]

Yes – I tutor mathematics and statistics (learn more here); I have over 13 years of tutoring experience. In addition, I’m actively working on independent certification as a member of the National Tutoring Association.

[…transit advocate?]

Yes! The Bronx is in desperate need of bus, subway, bike, and infrastructural improvements – which is why I’m a member of Transportation Alternatives and take part in their Complete the Concourse campaign. In addition to these improvements, my goal is to agitate for transportation justice and environmental justice through highway reform (#deckthehighways)!

  1. Hi NerdyNel,

    It all started a few years ago when I was waiting for the L train to arrive and delays were becoming part of my daily routine. Wondering if I was really condemned to ride the worst train in the city I decided to create a website to confirm my suspicions.

    Today the website is called SubwayStats (http://subwaystats.com), and I think you may be interested in our resources. On SubwayStats we provide real-time subway statuses and analytics on daily and historical subway service. SubwayStats is the first website which analyzes real-time subway status data and presents the information with beautiful and comprehensive charts and graphs.

    On SubwayStats.com, you can easily and quickly:

    – View the current status of each subway line
    – See the status of the subway line at each hour of the day
    – Compare one subway line’s performance with other lines
    – Visualize the overall daily service status of each train
    – Receive real-time subway alerts via Twitter
    – And much more.

    I bet you are also wondering if your train is the worst of them all so please visit SubwayStats.com to find out!

    If you find the information on SubwayStats helpful and interesting, I’d appreciate it if you could include us in your blog roll.

    Thanks a lot for your time.

    Regards,

    Grace
