If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

My name is Michael, and I've taught and tutored mathematics (algebra, trigonometry, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus), computer science (Java, C, C++, software design, service-oriented architecture), and science (chemistry, physics) at the corporate, college and high school levels for over 25 years.

My work experience as a software architect has allowed me to put these concepts to practical use on a daily basis, so I can relate these skills to you or your child in everyday terms.

I enjoy helping others to fully understand and apply a subject, not just memorize concepts. I am a very personable person and look forward to a rewarding tutoring experience for you.

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.

C++

I was actively involved in C/C++ development for 5 years. In addition to being a developer in the past, and now a software architect, I've taught and tutored C++ at the corporate and college level using custom coursework I've developed.

Because of my in-depth experience across multiple industries (finance, insurance, Department of Defense, pharmaceutical), I can provide real world examples and relate C++ knowledge to practical use.

Computer Programming

As a developer in the past and now a software architect, I have been actively involved for 25 years with computer programming using many different languages, including Java, C++, C, Visual Basic and PowerBuilder.

I have taught and tutored at the corporate and college level subjects such as Software Design Techniques, Software Testing, Object Oriented Development, Java, C++ and C.

Due to my experience in many industries (finance, insurance, Department of Defense, pharmaceutical), I can relate your computer programming to practical, real-world examples and experience.

Java

I have been actively involved in Java development, J2EE architecture and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) using Java for the past 15 years. In addition to being a developer in the past, and now a software architect, I've taught and tutored Java at the corporate and college level using custom coursework I've developed. Because of my in-depth experience across multiple industries (finance, insurance, Department of Defense, pharmaceutical), I can provide real world examples and relate your Java knowledge to practical use.

Excellent Tutor — We needed help with algebra 1 for our 9th grader. Michael is terrific! His teaching style is calm and low key. My child understands the concepts because of the way Michael is able to explain them. We have seen concrete results in a short period of time.
