I am a skilled tutor with more than 5,000 hours of experience tutoring or teaching. I studied a variety of fields, while pursuing my Chemical Engineering degree. I became a tutorial instructor, because I am excited to see people learn. I was a tutor, through college. I always studied for depth with the intent to teach what I learned.

It is common for my students to laugh during study sessions. I was voted the most inspirational student by my senior year band class. For every semester that I ...
He reviewed course work, improved organization, worked on finding resources to help with rounded study skills. He is always punctual and spends the amount of time needed. We are overall very happy with Nels.

Nels is a very knowledgeable teacher, he is calm and patient. He helped my son with Geometry and will continue using his services as we go to Algebra 2. By the end of each lesson, my son is more confident with his math skills.

I really enjoyed my lesson with Nels, above all Nels helped me understand a number of concepts that I had not grasped quite well. At the end of the lesson I felt more confident that I would get a better score in my test, which I did! Tank you Nels.

I have had two sessions with Nels so far and its going well. I haven't been in a math class for >6 years! Nels really helps break the problems down for me step by step. I bring in my statistics homework and tests and we go over the problems together so I truly understand the concept. Response time is less than 24 hours. I have yet to take test but I feel that my goal to get an A or a B in the class is possible because I am actually understanding the work problems.
- Jayne H. from Redmond, WA
My son got more confidence after tutoring for Chemistry and Precalculus. Nels knows how to teach and is a great tutor.
- Seunghan K. from Bellevue, WA
Very knowledgeable in chemistry and math topics. My daughter is very comfortable with Nel's skills, his ability to explain difficult concepts, and his general attitude towards his students.
- Daniel V. from Kirkland, WA
I cannot say enough about Nels. He has been such a great help to my daughter! She's bright, but Nels is able to explain things significantly better than her teachers so she really understands it. He recently even met her way off normal hours to assist with a project for her!
- Heidi P. from Bellevue, WA
I had high hopes for this tutoring session. Based on the reviews, Nels sounds like a tutor God. But I'm sorry it didn't work out one bit. He would make side comments about my skills and the way I tried to express my knowledge on science background. I felt like I was being judged by him. And that I personally took offensive. I guess he was too smart to be a tutor for someone like me. He kept mentioning his degree. I may not have a few bachelor degrees up my sleeve or whatever it was, but I know I am smart enough. Things might not come easy to me but I work my butt off harder than anyone will know. I don't need someone to tell me what they think about me and make me feel stupid. I'm sorry but this was disappointing. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else. I'm sorry.

My son just at his 4th lesson with him and I am already seeing positive changes. Nels is definitely a good teacher.
- Paromita S. from Sammamish, WA
My daughter was agonizing over chemistry prior to tutoring with Nels. Since tutoring with Nels, she has gained understanding and confidence with this subject. She is now getting A's on her chemistry tests and is feeling confident with this course. Nels has been able to assess her skills and needs and help her to get where she needs to be to be successful! Plus she has really enjoyed her time with Nels and his teaching style.
- Paula B. from Kirkland, WA
I always get something new I end up thinking about for weeks and weeks after meeting with Nels. For anyone looking at an advanced math tutor this is your guy.
- Ben M. from Seattle, WA
While I have never met Nels in person, I'm quite impressed with his ability to connect with and relate to my 17 year old son. He seems to understand my son's learning style and adapts his teaching method to best suit the young man. I appreciate the insights he provides about education, learning styles, motivation while engaging. My son's confidence has improved as a result of the time spent working with Nels. Thank you
