[VISION]

Promoting Intellectual Excellence.

Above, my insignia – Endless Horizons. I liken education – and tutoring in particular – to this insignia: a wellspring of opportunity with unlimited potential.

[MISSION]

To empower the thinkers of today with the knowledge and education necessary to become the doers of tomorrow.

[The Service]

The nerdy.nel Tutoring Service is my brand of professional tutoring in mathematics, statistics, and résumé and cover letter revisions. Over the past 13 years, my strong work ethic, patience, and diligence in my tutoring and treatment of my tutees led to higher course grades, increased understanding of math and stats topics, recommendations from students and faculty, and long-lasting friendships.

The Tutoring Service is available in NYC.
