Hello, my name is Michael. I am 26 years old, and have spent the past four years teaching, both in the classroom and in the outdoors. I have taught high school Biology and Environmental Science, Middle School Science, and was also an Environmental Educator. These experiences give me the skills to help you further understand the topics you may come across in school. I believe that given the appropriate instruction, all students are capable of succeeding.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

ACT Mathematics is a 60 question Exam with 60 minutes to complete. The test covers Pre-Algebra, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry. I will teach you techniques that will allow you to work quickly through the math with accuracy. Students looking for ACT Math prep, should be ready to work hard to succeed on this test. I will put in maximum effort to be sure that you succeed and I expect the same from you!

ACT Science

The ACT Science exam focuses on your understanding of research techniques, reading data tables and graphs, and understanding and comparing conflicting viewpoints or hypothesis. This test requires reading comprehension. I will work with you to improve your reading comprehension and to give you an overview of basic science techniques and theories that will help you succeed on this test.

Algebra 1

As a science teacher, I regularly use math in my lessons. 8th grade science requires the students to be familiar with algebra 1 level math. If they are not to that point, it is my responsibility to bring them to that level. I have also tutored for math in the past.

Basketball

I was a JV basketball coach and played basketball for 10 years.

Biology

I spent last year teaching Biology in Yuma, AZ. I have a solid understanding of the material. I also worked as an Environmental Educator in college and after college.

Ecology

Ecology is the study of the interactions and relationships between abiotic and biotic factors in a given environment. Understanding their relationships can help you to understand why certain things in the natural world are the way they are. I am an Environmental Science teacher and have focused most of my studies on Ecology and different ecosystems.

Elementary Science

I have worked in the past as a Middle School science teacher. Middle School science covers life science, chemical science, and physical science.

Prealgebra

As a science teacher, I used math on a daily basis. Prealgebra is used in many aspects of our lives, and crunching numbers and solving equations is one of my favorite things to do.

Study Skills

Study skills are important to any student being successful in the classroom. As a classroom teacher, I have incorporated study skills into my lessons. Students learn ways to best comprehend the subject material they are learning.
