Michael is a great tutor! He helped my daughter with her homework and gave her a lot of tips on how to study. He also gave her advice on how to approach test taking and helped her understand her strengths in her learning style.
"Flexible Schedule, Patience and Results!"
Bill from Libertyville, IL on 11/28/13
Michael worked well with our son on a few subjects. He was positive, motivating and provided post session study guidelines. Our son's grades improved rapidly.
Lisa from Mundelein, IL on 11/12/13
Mike was very patient with my son who is in 8th grade. He gave him great ideas on making the subject he was tutoring more relatable. Would highly recommend him.
"Good tutor but too hard to connect with"
Gwen from Berwyn, IL on 5/16/13
We felt Michael was making some good progress with our daughter but he was too hard to communicate with - ONLY by email and too long between them. We also tried Skype which was a disaster. Nice guy, good tutor - just was not working for us logistically.
Jennifer from Lake Forest, IL on 4/9/13
Michael seems to understand how my child learns. He is willing to work with our family to motivate our son. I would recommend Michael to my friends!!!
Yoginy from West Chicago, IL on 2/8/13
My 12 year old has seen Michael only twice and I think that's all it took!! Michael took the time to speak to her and understand her needs. My daughter is an honor roll student but was having major issues in getting organized. Michael showed her how to manage her time and make good study habits. After just meeting with him the first time I could see how much more confident she was in her decision making, and I saw her cleaning out her folders and getting it together! I was constantly questioning my daughter if she had her things together for school - books, folders, papers, etc. After the second meeting I didn't need to do that. I saw that she had made a priority list and has stuck with doing this ever since. This has been a major improvement in her attitude all around!

Michael is a great tutor and is able to review material from many of subject areas related to business. He is especially good at explaining processes and helping to organize thinking. Michael is also very flexible with his hours and is able to meet either in person or over the phone. He also definitely helps to build confidence with academic subject areas like entrepreneurship. I have met with Michael about 4 or 5 times and he has really helped me to stay organized and he has also helped me to learn how to read a syllabus more effectively and to create more effective study strategies.
Anna from Mount Prospect, IL on 2/7/13
Michael is a great tutor and a nice person. He is easy to reach by phone or e-mail. He is very helpful with my preparation for IELTS exam. He shows me a different ways how to prepare for writing and come up with IDEAS. I definitely recommend Michael to everyone looking for help.
"Great Tutor! Very reliable!"
Julie from Northbrook, IL on 1/24/13
Michael did a great job tutoring my 20 year old son. He was very likeable, dependable and accommodating. We will definitely be using him again in the future. Most importantly, my son got an A in his Marketing class with Michael's help!
Amy from Wilmette, IL on 1/14/13
My high school son has seen Michael a couple times so far about Algebra and feels like it has helped alot. Mike uses good tactics to test that my son has actually learned the content and that gives him immediate confidence that he is mastering it. Very clear and direct; patient.
Ardak from Chicago, IL on 1/12/13
He is an awesome tutor, and a very nice person to work with. We had one lesson over the Skype, then we had two hours meeting. He was really helpful.
"Responsive and responsible tutor. Great help with resume."
Peter from Chicago, IL on 12/6/12
I was referred to Michael by a friend who also found him very helpful. He responded to my emails quickly and was very accommodating to schedule the lesson. I'd go back to him if I needed another session.
"Effective organizational and study skills tutor"
Trina from Barrington, IL on 12/6/12
Michael has worked with our 8th grade son for several months on a variety of subjects but mostly on basic study skills and good organizational habits. He has made tremendous progress and we continue to use Michael's services to help our son be a better student. Michael thinks outside the box with solutions to problems, i.e., using Google Docs for logging homework details versus handwritten notes. Michael is professional and easy to work with and I would recommend him highly to other parents who need his services.
"Very patient and positive"
Elaine from Deerfield, IL on 12/6/12
Michael has been very patient and positive with my 16 year old son who has not been the most willing or positive student. He is flexible and helps my son to see things in a more simple way. I think he is helping him to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks, Mike.
Jeff from Highland Park, IL on 11/22/12
Mike is a fantastic teacher. He gears his lessons towards YOUR needs. Tremendous communicator. He is extremely to the point and doesn't make anything sound complex. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for help.
"Great and efficient tutor with patience and passion "
Sophie from Buffalo Grove, IL on 11/13/12
Michael is a very passionate and professional tutor. He was well prepared for each of my son's English tutoring session. Michael is very efficient, patient and encouraging, and he covers a lot of things during each session. My son feels that he has learned a lot from Michael. We feel that our money and time has been well spent. We will continue to have Michael as my son's tutor on different subjects (English and Math etc.).
Pam from Highland Park, IL on 10/26/12
My son who has had several tutors over the years reported that Michael is an amazing tutor. My son said he has amazing techniques to get him to focus, be interested in the material, and learn. I have a Masters in Social Work and School Psychology and I highly recommend you use him.
"Great tutor for my daughter"
Dana from Barrington, IL on 10/17/12
My daughter met with Micheal and immediately was comfortable and felt like she had accomplished something she had been struggling with in math. The best part is my daughter is actually excited to go back on a regular basis.
Shannon from Deerfield, IL on 10/14/12
Michael is a great tutor! He is very helpful with explaining different topics...he will explain things in a way that you will understand. He uses analogies and mnemonics to break down difficult science explanations and make them more simple to follow. He also creates creative ways to remember hard-to-grasp concepts. He also makes you feel confident before you take a test. He also helps show you ways to eliminate false answers in multiple choice question environments. If you find struggling, Michael will be a great source to make your studying easier. Highly recommended!
"EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED!!!"
Martin from Palatine, IL on 9/24/12
I have not been in school in over 20 years and found myself at a turning point where I wanted to create mass amounts of success in my life by learning. Going back to school, finding a difficult class, and getting and "A" was my initial goal, finding out that ACCOUNTING is very difficult, I became discouraged. I needed to learn a tremendous amount more than just the accounting skills, I needed to learn how to study, absorb, and retain information at a whole new level again. Michael has helped me with all of my expectations if not exceeded them. I feel confident that with him in my corner I may very well obtain that "A" in accounting! He is a great tutor and very smart. Michael works around my hectic schedule (I forgot to mention I work 70 hours a week as a Manager of Arlington Heights Ford), late nights always seem to be the only time. He is always there. Thanks Mike
"Great tutor with flex hours"
Peter from Glenview, IL on 9/19/12
Michael was very helpful with my preparation for the series 7 and was extremely easy to reach both by phone and in person. Not only did he come to my office for a session, but we also met outside on weekends to cover additional material. Michael was recommended to me from a friend and I would also recommend him for tutoring.
Francisco from Waukegan, IL on 9/15/12
After spending sometime with Michael I have a better understanding and approach on how to improve my job interview skills.
"Great with figuring out how people learn"
JJ from Winnetka, IL on 9/12/12
Michael is helping me study for the Series 7 and he has been very helpful. I will continue to meet with him and recommend him to anyone.
Abbey from Chicago, IL on 9/9/12
From the start of this process Michael has been very responsive to all my concerns on preparing for the Series 6 & 63. I am very unfamiliar with the content, during our first 5 minutes Michael walked me through the best way to start my study process, key points/key words to target, & overall encouraging me that I will get the results I want to achieve. I feel very fortunate that I found Michael looking forward to the 15+hours working with him. I did a great job on choosing a great tutor!
"Very good tutor"
Vicki from Wauconda, IL on 9/8/12
When I met Michael he helped me understand the Human Resource concepts on my final project. I will be using him again in the human resource classes.
CARLA from Batavia, IL on 8/22/12
The things he pointed out to me were very helpful and gave me a basis on where to start my studying. He was also very helpful in showing me what things I needed to work on.
Trent from Prospect Heights, IL on 7/15/12
I increased my SAT score by 40, by working with Michael for 4 weeks!! Michael was patient and flexible with my school schedules.
"Smart, professional, and devoted"
Jing from Schaumburg, IL on 7/14/12
I don't know what words can express my gratitude toward Michael. He does help me find light at the end of the tunnel.
BrIAN from Northbrook, IL on 5/21/12
I came to class on Friday and Mike pushed me further. He created a new way to review the material before our next meeting.
