All of Michael’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Michael’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Adobe InDesign

For last 14 years, I have been using Adobe InDesign to put together marketing booklets, wedding albums, books, and ebooks. I am very knowledgeable, proficient in InDesign, and I use the current version CS6 in my workflow weekly.

Adobe Photoshop

I have an in-depth knowledge on all versions of Photoshop.

Algebra 1

Algebra is a fascinating math topic that came to us from the Arabic word. Many students of mine love the way I am teaching Algebra. I will teach you all the simple logic behind the topic and get you up to speed on Algebra very quickly.

Chinese

As a native Chinese, I received my first bachelor's degree in Chinese Literature at a Chinese nationally accredited university. I can teach speaking, reading and writing Mandarin Chinese.

Elementary Math

I not only teach the required math and arithmetic techniques, but also the math concept and logic behind those techniques to build a solid math foundation for future math studies. My own data have shown my approach shortens the required tutoring time almost by 30% to 50%. As the result, my students demonstrate complete confidence in elementary math.

Geometry

Different from most other teachers and tutors, I not only teach the required math techniques, but also the concept and logic behind those techniques by helping students to master Geometry using their own visualization process. My own data have shown my approach shortens the required tutoring time almost by 30% to 50%. As the result, my students gain complete confidence in Geometry and excel in standardized exams, such as SAT, GMAT and GRE.

Photography

I have been a freelance professional photographer since 2000, and only recently retired from the career. Over the years, I have been shooting almost all genres, including portraiture, advertising, products, macros, events, weddings, and fine arts. My images have been used all over the world in advertising, print publications, billboards, and web sites. I feel I am very competent in all general areas of photography, including in-depth knowledge on using strobes and other artificial lighting tools.

Prealgebra

In addition to learning rules and formulas, I teach my students to develop a solid understanding of basic algebra. My students are taught how to apply algebraic functions to create mathematical models of real-world scenarios. The students see their grades improved in less than 8 weeks.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
