Nicholas earned his BS in biology and BA in education from Tufts University while minoring in studio art. During his time at Tufts, Nicholas cemented a passion for education after student teaching forensic science and English to ESL students at Charlestown High School. That passion then led him to seek out work at Hong Kong International School where he worked as a program assistant, campus manager, and instructor for both local students and international students from around the globe.
Hong Kong was not an unfamiliar place to Nicholas though since prior to coming to the Boston area for university, he lived in Hong Kong and traveled extensively around Asia. In fact, Nicholas' first venture in education was during his time in Hong Kong where he taught ballroom and Latin dance.
Nicholas has a strong passion for the natural sciences and is deeply enthusiastic about teaching biology, chemistry, physics, forensics, and earth sciences. However, he also has a soft spot for art and both loves to teach art as well as find ways to incorporate art into other subjects.
In his personal time, Nicholas enjoys cooking up new dishes for friends, playing board games as well as video games, painting pop art, and teaching himself new things.
