Meet Nico Cordero: SAT, ACT, & STEM Tutor.

I have been a problem solver for as long as I can remember. When I moved from Connecticut to Arkansas at 9 years old, I felt despair. My support system was shattered. I could no longer rely on my aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, or culture. It was just me, my mom, my dad, and my brother, a small Puerto Rican family out of place in the south. Over time and through the dedication of those who saw my inherent worth, I learned that my losses do not define me, and through the transcendence of my past and focus on self-improvement, I can thrive anywhere.

As a tutor, I bring this philosophy to bear with my students. Who you are is incredible, and one of the reasons for that is entirely separate from who you are now: it is your limitless potential, your capacity always to be better. My mission is to get you as close to that elusive limit as you want. I am with you every step of the way and look forward to seeing you thrive.
