My Story

I recognize the potential in each one of my students. With a customizable approach, I have seen my Grand Valley / Western Slope area clients’ test scores and grades consistently rise. Since starting as a  tutor in 2003, middle school teacher in 2006, high school teacher in 2011, and college/university teacher in 2010 my results are a testament that my system works. I’m a patient, adaptable, and professional Math Tutor ready to help you reach your goals. Get in touch today so we can start working together.

I come from a back ground of working my way up from the bottom to the top. I have been both the student struggling to get caught up and pass a class as well as the student who wants to excel and get ahead.

He really knows his stuff!

Thank You Nathan! What a great teacher! He made the impossible seem possible and the math seem comprehensible. He takes the time to make sure you understand the work. He works with what you do know and builds on that foundation! For someone who hates to ask for help, it was a very positive experience.

Awesome tutor.
Takes his time to explain in a way my child understands. Very happy with this tutor and excited about our progress in math!

Great tutor.
Nathan was very good with our daughter. He was easy to talk to, explained things well and had a very calm approach to the subject. He made it easy to work out difficult schedules. We would definitely use him again. Thanks a lot for your help, Nathan!
