Niall has a proven track record teaching a range of subjects including Physics, Pre-calculus, Calculus, and ACT/SAT prep. He brings more than 3500 hours of one-on-one tutoring and test prep experience to the ESM Prep team and has guided hundreds of students and families throughout the testing and academic process. Niall graduated with honors in Physics from Imperial College London before undertaking a short-term visiting research post at Queen’s University Belfast. After a period of traveling and working at a ski resort, Niall decided to work as an academic mentor as he enjoys the challenges and rewards that working with young adults brings.
Growing up in Belfast, Ireland, Niall excelled at academia and sport. He was captain of the senior hurling team (a traditional Irish sport) and a reserve member of the Irish International Physics Olympiad team, which competed in Estonia in 2012. This combination of team-leading and academic achievement has led Niall towards helping others meet their full potential. He enjoys the intellectual challenge of working with expat and international students particularly to improve their tests scores, as they navigate the byzantine process that is the US admissions process from afar. He views that the most important differentiating factor in students’ long-term success is due diligence, paired with intellectual curiosity, which he strives to improve in all his students. He is especially proud to bring vibrancy and ability whilst also being able to relate to his students. As his knowledge and success with test prep has expanded, he has and continues to work with students across the world in countries such as Australia, Israel, Singapore, Switzerland, USA, the Philippines and Venezuela.
At the beginning of 2017, Niall expanded his role within ESM. He now serves as the Managing Director of the UK team. He views the responsibilities within this role as simply to make life easier for the college coaches and academic mentors in the UK – enabling them to focus on what they do best, which is doing excellent work with students.
In his free time, Niall enjoys exploring London’s restaurant scene, sampling new coffees and watching live football. Niall is also a keen fitness enthusiast, particularly in running and cycling. You may find him attacking the well trodden paths of Hyde Park on a Sunday afternoon.
