Hello, my name is Dr. Michael. I have 20 years of teaching experience in California,and at Cornell University (IV-League)., teaching physics and mathematics courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I was awarded 8 years of full scholarship during my graduate study from Cornell university. I received my MS and Ph.D. in the Engineering Physics from Cornell, which ranks second best in my field in the USA. I have published six research papers, which all have been published in top ranked American scientific journals. I use the students' response system in my classrooms, computer Power-Points presentations, and I always give short quizzes to insure my students are following the subject. I enjoy teaching and being in an academic environments.

Micheal’s subjects

Algebra 1

I have been teaching algebra 1 for 20+ years. The colleges have the policies to assign this course to the most qualified among the faculty. I always engage students in the class, using "the student response system",and motivate them to love math. My love of math and physics was the basis of my success at Cornell University.

Algebra 2

I have been assigned to teach algebra 2 for many years, as my algebra 1 students have been petitioning to have me teaching their Algebra 2 classes. I always do my best to relief the students anxiety in math.,and create an, engaging learning atmospheres. I tutored algebra 1, and 2, for 6 years at Cornell University ,as I had the " Teaching Assistantship grants".


I have taught calculus for 15 years as a professor in mathematic in the U.S.

I have also taught Advanced Calculus in the American University in Austria and at U.C.L.A. Extension as an adjunct professor.

I use PowerPoint Presentations and have my students engaged in classroom activities.

Finite Math

I have taught finite mathematics in US colleges and abroad for many years. During my graduate study at Cornell I had to take advanced courses in "finite math", and many other advanced mathematics, to be able to obtain my MS, Ph.D., Post-Doc. in Eng. Physics. A search shows that Cornell ranks no.2 in Eng. physics in the USA.


I had taken 2 courses in geometry during my undergraduate studies, and this subject played a great role in my success in my MS, Ph.D., and Post Doc. graduate studies at Cornell University (IV- League Univ., top ranked in my field Eng. Physics).
I have taught geometry for many years in my 20 years teaching in Colleges in Southern California. I use PowerPoint computer presentations, the student response system, and graphing calculators in all my classes. I have the highest ranking by the students evaluating their instructors on the sites for "students ranking their professor."


I have been teaching physics for 20 years, and I use the latest available tools, in aiding the learning process. I had, from my early age, wanted to obtain the required knowledge to understand natural phenomena. I received my Ph.D.from Cornell University in physics, one of the best universities in the United States.


Pre-Calculus is the most important subject, as it prepares students to enter the domain of "Calculus". Calculus is the foundation of our modern sciences and technologies. I have been assigned for many-years to teach pre-calculus, and have received the highest rating by my students on "Students rating their professor".

SAT Math

I love mathematics. It enables us to unravel the secrets of our universe. I, during my graduate work at Cornell, had tutored high school students in the ACT/ SAT Tests for 8 years.They named me "the great SAT Expert". I am college math professor, and have also tutoring ACT/SAT Tests, for the past 10 years. I am happy, to see my students ranking the top 5% in these Tests in California.


I learned trigonometry in my undergraduate studies, and I used it in all of my graduate study at Cornell University. My field of Engineering Physics lays heavy demands on trigonometry skills. I have been teaching trig for years, and make sure my students become aware of its applications in optics, astronomy, lasers, computer technology, and many others.
