Nonso’s first experience in education started at the Great Oaks Charter School where he served as a founding member of a tutor corps for a brand new high school. There, he discovered a passion for helping students learn in a way that fits them, and he had the opportunity to tailor curriculum to the needs of students far below grade level. Following his experience at Great Oaks, Nonso took that passion for learning to UCLA, where tutored both high school students and his peers in anatomy and physiology.
Nonso firmly believes in meeting students where they are academically and helping them learn to value the learning process itself. As a result, he encourages students to explore what helps them learn best and always strives to anchor any content to their experiences. As a mentor for ESM, he specializes in helping students in math, chemistry, biology, physics, and the SAT/ACT.
Having recently graduated with his MD from UCLA, Nonso also currently serves as the Chief Consultant at HuNamics, a startup that aims to help organizations improve employee engagement and avoid non-targeted interventions that can miss central issues.
Nonso spends much of his free time bodybuilding, writing spoken word poetry, and binge-watching marvel movies. Lately, Nonso has been exploring and loving the Bay Area, and he’s comfortable proclaiming: “It’s way better than LA.”
