Hey there! I'm Nathaniel, creator and host of the Top Tutor Podcast. I've been tutoring students in NYC and LA since I graduated from Yale in 2015, and own a tutoring company called Grove Prep. I used to tutor privately with no business infrastructure, but over the past year got serious about automation, scaling, and getting help for my weaknesses. My income doubled in 12 months.
Some of my students work with me for years, some for a few weeks. I've helped them learn fractions, study for the SAT/ACT, and put together their college admissions essays. When a family asks me to teach a subject I'm not familiar with, I call on some of the tutors who work for Grove Prep to help out.
I believe that students need more than a textbook to learn: they need meaningful connections with their teachers, who honor them as human beings. I believe that helping students overcome fear of failure, fear of not being enough, and fear of not meeting expectations is more important than precalculus could ever be. Through my teaching, I aim to make the world a better place by helping students learn to identify their emotions around learning and set them on a course of self-mastery in whatever field or life path they choose.
