My main focus is on ball handling, free throw shooting, and 1 on 1 scoring techniques. Those were strengths of mine when I played also. Ball handling on weaker hands were a strength of mine as well. Also mid range game and 1 on 1 moves to the basket or a pull up jump shot.

Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him.

Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !

Students can expect to mentally tap into their innermost dominant athlete. "Mind over matter" is heavily emphasized. We expect our students to go past the realm of being just a competitor.

As a Division II All America women's basketball player, East region Player of the year (2016) and ECC first team selection three consecutive years, I understand and know what it takes to make into Division II basketball college hoops. Working individually with athletes from young children (6 years old) to High school kids to help them prepare for college basketball is my main focus and strength! In addition, my network extends to basketball coaches all around the nation.
