"Came to our rescue!"
- Connie, Cumming, GA on 1/25/15
Our daughter was having trouble learning from her Math teacher. Their teaching/learning styles just weren't meshing well. With two weeks left in the semester she had an 82%. Her test average was only 71%. She had one chapter test and the final left. She needed B's on both or her grade would drop to a C.
We contacted Michael and he was quick to communicate and schedule with us. He asked me questions about her learning style, personality, strengths, and interests so he would have some ideas of what would help her learn.
After the first session I knew she was "getting" it. Michael explains things in a variety of ways until he sees that light-bulb moment. Then instead of moving on, he reinforces that idea until the student is confident with it. We only had time for one session before her chapter test. She got 102%! We had another session before the final. She got a 97%!
In just two sessions, Michael was able to sort out and fill in the gaps of the entire semester and restore our daughters confidence. The icing on the cake is that her grade went from 82% to 90%. She has never been more proud of an A. I'm so grateful we found Michael. I give him my highest recommendation.

Michael is a great tutor. He has passion for chemistry and was very helpful to me. He was on time, courteous, approachable, and very easy to get along with. I highly recommend him.
"Very knowledgeable and helpful"

Michael is very knowledgeable in teaching AP World history. He is passionate, and cares about his student's progress and improvement. He has been a great help!

It was New Years Day, and he made time for me during a very busy week. I was eager to get tutoring started before the beginning of the spring semester. He takes his job seriously, which is what I need.
"We are fans of Michael!"
- Pam, Gainesville, GA on 12/28/13
Michael is not only a kind person he was very helpful for my daughter in her struggle with Chemistry. He answered questions and helped prepare for her exam by working through the entire study guide and filling in the gaps in her learning. He was prompt, flexible with scheduling and made it easy for us to work with a tutor. As our first experience with Wyzant, Michael was outstanding. My daughter told me after the first session, "Mom, I finally had someone who could answer my questions!" The look on her face was priceless. We would highly recommend Michael as a tutor.
"Great Tutor - Very Flexible"
- Matthew, Cumming, GA on 11/14/13
Michael has really been a huge help to my son already after just 3 sessions. I can see his confidence level grow more and more. I only wish I had not waited so long before contacting Michael. I do think in short order, with Michael's help we will be able to get out of this hole we dug.
- Ann, Roswell, GA on 5/16/13
Mike was fabulous. He knows history like no one else. He helped my son review/study for the AP World History exam. He was able to tie history together throughout the ages and talk about the relevance it has today. My son learned a lot and felt well prepared for the exam. Thanks Mike!
"Excellent algebra tutor!"
- Becky, Cumming, GA on 11/29/12
Michael has done a great job tutoring my son in algebra. He's very patient and does an excellent job of breaking down complicated processes and explaining things in simple, understandable terms. Not only does he help with academics, along the way he reinforces the importance of character traits, such as perseverance and diligence. I highly recommend him.
"Nothing short of amazing!"
- Rick, Simpsonville, SC on 11/20/12
My daughter has gone from a 73 to a 96 average in the class due to Michael. He has taught her better study habits that have helped her improve her other grades and feel like she is accomplishing something when she studies. Michael's patience, clear, concise explanations and his expertise have been exactly what we needed for my daughter to dig herself out of her academic hole in math and science. Very impressive and professional tutor. Highly recommended.
"Knows His Stuff"
- Anna, Easley, SC on 11/19/12
Michael is an excellent tutor who really knows Chemistry and algebra. He uses real life examples to explain chemistry, and engages the student in learning. He also in one session helped our son who was failing algebra get a B on an algebra test and bring his grade up to passing.
"Great Chemistry tutor"
- Cayla, Buford, GA on 5/24/12
My son went from a 63 to a 79 in the class in the 10 weeks he worked with Michael. He had failed 8 assignments prior to tutoring with Michael and only 1 after. A friend of his joined in for 8 weeks of the tutoring and he went from an 61 to an 81. The boys really felt like they were learning the material. Great tutor would highly recommend and will definitely use him again if the need arises.
Michael replied on 5/24/2012
It was a pleasure tutoring both boys, and I could really tell that they were actually enjoying the material. I am very pleased that they did well on the finals!
- Deanna, Cumming, GA on 2/7/12
Michael is tutoring my Granddaughter and is doing a great job. We are very pleased with how he is preparing McKenzie to understand the material. She has been very receptive and we believe Michael's tutoring is going to help her get much better grades.
"Excellent. Highly Recommend"
- Richelieu, Suwanee, GA on 1/19/12
Michael did a world class job. He has vast experience with the ASVAB test and communicated the information well. I appreciate his help.
- Esther, Atlanta, GA on 9/23/11
I needed a refresher course for the ASVAB, and Michael was just what I needed. He worked with me to make sure that I understood all of the problems and answered my questions about the ASVAB and the military. Great tutor!
- Rebecca, Norcross, GA on 7/27/11
Michael has done a great job keeping our son focused on his studies by keeping the discussion interesting. He taught him study techniques as well as other advice on how to study on his own. Michael was able to cover a wide range of subjects including math, chemistry, world history and Bible.
"Reliable, Flexible, Great Tutor"
- Julie, Cumming, GA on 7/21/11
Michael was the perfect answer for a very frustrating situation we encountered mid-year. Our son, 15, was struggling in 10th grade math and when the second half of the year began (Jan. 2011) he was failing. He had little to no support at school and a teacher who wasn't able to explain the work or answer questions. His frustration grew out of control and as much as we tried to help as parents, we knew it was best to get outside help. Michael not only built him back up, but also helped him pull his grade up and finish the year with a B! He even jumped in and helped with Physical Science when there were tough tests to study for in that class as well.
We would highly recommend Michael and are glad that we found him - it made our son's year end on a high note!
"Great tutor; would highly recommend"
- Aimee, Cumming, GA on 7/16/11
Michael has been a great tutor. I was having trouble in college algebra and he helped me to understand the material and realize where I was making mistakes while doing homework assignments and on tests. He showed me that I had a overall understanding of the material but was making small errors because I lacked confidence when answering questions. He was friendly and helped me to gain confidence with the subject. He has worked well with me to schedule tutoring times that worked well with my schedule and I have always left the sessions feeling like I have a better understanding of the material we've covered. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a math tutor.
"The "Miracle Worker" Cometh"
- Fire-Brown, Cumming, GA on 1/27/11
Michael was pleasant and relatable. His commitment to education is apparent. Our son, who does not like to study, took to Michael and was engaged throughout the lesson. Michael truly "got" and understood where our son was (in terms of math level) and began from there.
We are certain that this would be both beneficial and rewarding for our son.
The process of finding Michael was met with ease. The profiles available allowed us to choose the person we felt would be best suited for our needs. Our first impression was that he is perfect for our son. Michael did not disappoint. He was truly who he said he was in his profile.
The feedback via the website was appreciated and managed well.
