About Randy

I'm a pianist-singer specialized in Western Art, jazz, and musical theatre idioms and I teach lessons in all classical and contemporary styles.

We feel so privileged to have Randy as an instructor for our daughter. Not only extremely proficient in many areas of music, Randy is also very skilled and proficient with his teaching. Our 12-yr- old daughter thanked us for finding Randy, saying that she has learned and progressed so much since he began teaching her. He helped ready her for her audition, and her confidence is growing. I can't recommend Randy highly enough.

My daughter Aliyah thought it went great!

My daughter has been taking voice & piano lessons with Randy for about a year now. Within a few months after switching to Randy, the improvement in both her piano playing & in her voice was very noticeable not only to us (her biased parents), but also to her music & performing arts teacher at school and others. Randy is an excellent teacher who knows how to bring the best out of his students. My daughter loves her lessons with Randy !

Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience.

That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all.

Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc, examining your writing process together will allow us to customize every session for your needs specifically.

Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

Nick worked with my son, a freshman in college, to support his completion of essays in his freshman english class. My son will speak to Nick's tutor skills, but I need to speak to Nick's service - he is incredibly friendly, and his response time is excellent. Any time we needed to ask a question, I got a reply within minutes (or, if he was teaching, at his earliest break). Scheduling sessions can be tricky when doing tutoring, and having a responsive, communicative tutor who is organized and manages an efficient schedule is KEY. Nick is all these things. I highly recommend him as a tutor!

Nick is a great teacher who makes learning fun.He is very dedicated and invested in the success of his students. He is eager to help even after the sessions are over. My daughters can email him anytime before tests or submission of big essays and he reviews them and emails them back with feedback.

If you or your child is struggling in writing, it can be a daunting task to write an essay or story to communicate a point, or to write a persuasive speech that wins audiences over. If you can write, you can go anywhere in life! Much of our schools are struggling with core writing standards. This requires much outside tutoring. If you or someone you know is struggling in writing, I can help with topics, essays, grammar, subject verb and sentence agreements, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, and much more! I can also tutor in MLA format for research papers. I'm available in person and online.

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
