He puts students at ease by learning about their goals, ambitions, and unique story, allowing him to co-create a comprehensive plan and roadmap toward achieving their goals.

Nathan also excels at navigating ambiguity and breaking everything down into bite-sized chunks for both the students and their families.
Nathan has helped numerous applicants gain acceptance into the country's top universities, such as Harvard University, Duke University, UC Berkeley, and the University of Pennsylvania.
When Nathan isn’t coaching, he enjoys competitive dragon boat paddling, trying new recipes, learning new languages, traveling, lion dancing, and volunteering in his community.
