Nico Krell

tutor, director, collaborator, hiker

Nico is a Lecturer in Theater at Princeton University. He is from Montevideo, Uruguay and has been a private tutor since 2016. Using his lifetime of international experience, Nico customizes his neuroscience-based curriculum to empower students to be masters of their own minds: clear on what they need to achieve their dreams and equipped with the tools to succeed. They are fearless and flexible; they learn to conquer any problem, not just ones from past tests.

Nico graduated from Princeton University, where he created a major in Performance Studies: a blend of anthropology and critical theory. His research held American media practices to political account. For his work, he was awarded Princeton’s top honor in the arts, the Lewis Suddler Prize.
