My name is Zakary Jay Nicholls, I'm a certified VET teacher specializing in K-14 education (business, economics, mathematics, physics). I am based in Newcastle, and am one of the most experienced private educators in the region, having worked in the fields of academic education and vocational training for twelve years, and have taught and trained well over 500 students in one-on-one online and in person format.

I currently run a successful K-14 education firm (specializing in business, economics, mathematics, and physics), prior to this I spent 3 years as the resident K-12 Academic Tutor (specializing in economics and mathematics) at a well know Lake Macquarie education center, and 4 years prior to this as an in-home K-12 Academic Tutor (specializing in business and mathematics) for a Newcastle and Lake Macquarie based education firm. Previous to my employment in the field of academic education, I spent 4 years working in the field of retail, business administration, retail training, and frontline management.

My main area of academic and teaching expertise is K-14 mathematics (K-12/TAFE/University), and I also teach students from lower primary all the way to postgraduate in a range of subjects including: business, commerce, economics, engineering, science, and physics. In addition to my work as an educator, I am an independent economic financial analyst and early career scholar. My areas of personal academic interest are: mathematical modelling and differential equations, asset pricing and financial economics, theoretical astrophysics, and general and mathematical engineering.

I am a highly successful and very sought after academic tutor, with an impressive record of student improvements. A number of my students have gone on to study in technically advanced and high ATAR programs (mathematics/medical sciences/engineering/data science/quantitative finance/economics/physics/chemistry/computer sciences) at both local and Ivy league universities, some have completed competitive entry programs in TAFE and apprenticeship programs (civil trades/electrical trades/mechanical trades/explosives and demolitions), as well as military service and workplace employment.

My students routinely demonstrate fantastic academic and personal improvements, and it brings me great pride to help students to achieve their best. From a results perspective, my students have achieved better than expected results through my teaching and tutoring. My lessons are tailored to the needs of each student, whether that is focusing on learning and understanding of core concepts or applying existing knowledge to practice advanced problems and exam style questions. My aim is to ensure that every student comes away from my lessons with an improved understanding of the content, improved academic work ethic, and improved self confidence.

I run online term based lessons, a full term of lessons runs for 8 weeks from week 2 through to week 9 of each term (the initial term is charged pro rata, term durations may vary). Monday-Saturday term lesson prices range from $50-$70/hour (prices vary depending on subject and lesson format, lessons offers are subject to availability). If you would like to book lessons, please send me a message with the student age and the subject required and I'll be in touch ASAP.
