Meet Nick Turecky:

Duke Grad | Test Prep Specialist.

Coming from a family of educators, I’ve always valued the importance of being surrounded by passionate teachers and learners. Being an anxious test-taker growing up, I know the pressures that are on the shoulders of students who are juggling academic commitments while also trying to live a normal teenage life. As I went through my academic journey, the one thing that kept me grounded was having a sense of preparation. I want to be able to help students who may have a similar sense of anxiety to feel comfortable and gain confidence that they can tackle any challenge thrown at them.

In college, I majored in visual studies, and my passion is video editing. At the heart of video editing is problem-solving: how can you, given a disparate assortment of videos, think critically and chop up the clips to make a cohesive, engaging story? Test prep poses a similar workflow: how can you, given certain pieces of information, constraints, and a question, arrive at a conclusion? As a tutor, I encourage students to break out of the multiple-choice bubble and think about strategies and ways to be successful by employing a combination of their practiced skills and their unique ability to think on their feet.
