Michael was an amazing tutor for my freshman son who fell behind in Honors Geometry due to a surgery and many missed school days. Mike bent over backwards to accommodate our ever changing schedule. He was prompt and knowledgeable and my son was very comfortable learning from him. Awesome instructor and very successful in his teaching methods! Will definitely keep Michael on our "speed dial." Thank you Michael!!
Michael has been my son's tutor for a couple of months. He has been doing tutoring remotely. I fully trust how he tutor my son every week for the content and duration. He will not over charge. My son also likes to work with him after he was not happy with the first tutor locally. My son Calculus scores have been improving.
Thank you Michael. With your help my score raised from F to C. Thank you for the last minute help.
Michael is a reliable and extremely bright young man. His patience and mastery of the subject matter enabled my son to improve his precalculus grade to a B+. I would highly recommend Michael!
Mike was a wonderful tutor for my daughter. My daughter had a very busy schedule and Mike was very flexible, always finding time to fit her in. Math has never been a favorite subject of hers, but with Mike's help she got an A both semesters in pre-calculus! I would recommend Mike highly!!
Michael worked with my senior who was struggling with Calculus. He made sure to sync his lesson plan with what was being taught in the classroom. He was patient and very well prepared. My daughter's grade showed immediate improvement and she aced her final!
Michael is an excellent tutor. He helped my daughter in Algebra II and she said he was very patient and explained things in a way that made the material easy to understand. She went from getting an F in the class to scoring a 106 on one of her tests! I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a math tutor.
I've been happy with the initiative Mike takes to improve my son's ability to understand. He takes his time and my son feels very comfortable working with him.
Mike helped my daughter during the last few weeks of school...wished we had started sooner! She went into her preCalc final with more confidence and managed to pull a B out of the class. Thanks!
After working with Michael, my daughter improved her ACT math score from 30 to 36! Couldn't be happier with the results.
Thank you for discussing the pros and cons of taking an accelerated math class next year. He is more confident than ever before about his math skills and is ready to take the higher level course.
Plain and simple. Mike makes a huge difference. I know parents are looking for answers as they seek to get their child help in their studies and if you are lucky enough to read this and get Mike as your tutor it will be to both you and your child’s advantage. What I can tell you is that sometimes you need to let more qualified individuals do what they do best , do you really want to try and explain things you learned years ago, and how much do we really remember? We can sometimes do more damage than good. Take it from someone who knows.
You will find Mike to be extremely patient and he works great with my son. What started out as only being a once in awhile sessions with my son, he now wants to meet weekly with Mike as he explains things so well and “takes the pressure off him” and as expected it has made life at home much more pleasant and he is doing well in his class. As always it’s up to the student as well to put forth the effort to learn but if you have the choice to get help from Mike and stop the frustration that both you and your child are feeling you really need to reach out and get his assistance. You will not be sorry. I wish you the best in your search and hope you find either Mike or another Tutor to assist you to get your child the assistance they need.
Michael has done a great job with our son. After a few lessons he was able to go from a failing grade to an 88% on his final. He is off to a great start and has maintained an A this semester while continuing to work with Michael. We have now started using Michael for pre-calculus as well due to the positive outcome. Best of all, there have been no complaints about having to go to tutoring sessions.
My son has been working with Mike for several months now and has shown a great improvement in several subjects thanks to Mike. He started out just getting help in Spanish but then asked for help with chemistry and geometry when he was struggling. It is so great that Mike is knowledgeable in all these subjects and can help my son in whatever he happens to need the most help with at the time. My son looks forward to meeting with Mike because of the way he explains things and makes it so much easier to understand. Finding Mike is one of the best things I have done for my son.
Appreciate that you were on time even though we were running late due to traffic from 9/11 ceremony! My son felt like he got some valuable one-on-one information!
Our son needed extra help to get ready for Calculus BC test. We were fortunate to have found Mike who is not only knowledgeable in the subject matter, but also an outstanding teacher with passion for math. If our son ever needed extra help again in the future, we would contact Mike without any hesitation.
We had Michael as my son's math tutor for almost 6 months now. My son is in his sophomore year in high school. He has been struggling with math and his math grade has been gradually declined. After few sessions with Michael, my son’s math grade started to come back up. As the school end, he had a grade A on math. Michael is always on time, never miss a session. We are very happy with him and will have him again after summer.
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.
I have successfully passed actuarial exams P/1, FM/2, MFE/3F, and C/4 and am available to tutor anyone preparing for the aforementioned exams.
In college I extensively studied mathematical proof and set theory, and have also succeeded in courses on combinatorics and probability.
