A lifelong West Van native, Nick was in the final class at Hillside before its demolition and later continued his education at Rockridge & West Vancouver Secondary School. After graduating from UBC’s Sauder School with a BCom. in Finance alongside his sister (who was 3rd in her class), Nick enjoyed a brief career as a financial analyst before turning to his passion - teaching.

Having discovered this passion as a peer tutor at Rockridge as well as private tutoring through university, Nick opened Knack Academics in 2011.

Nick believes in the importance of having a balance between taking good in-class notes and effective studying, and in the interest of helping his students has created a free online collection of BC Curriculum-specific notes for Math, Physics, Chemistry and Calculus. By maintaining that crucial balance as well as bringing math into life outside of the classroom, Nick & Knack Academics strives to create success for lifelong learners.
