Michael provided excellent tutoring services to our student. He was very helpful and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Michael to prospective students!
We were looking for a stats tutor for our daughter and Michael approached us. Location for tutoring was made clear to him before the lessons started. A couple of weeks into the sessions, we received a rate increase request from $40 to $50/hr. Reasons quoted by Michael were that WyzAnt was taking most of the money and he has to pay for parking. We agreed to the increase. We received another rate increase request a few weeks prior to end of semester. He only had to teach two to three more sessions before finals. We were taken by surprise since we have never experienced this with any other WyzAnt tutor. Whatever the initial posted rate is, that is what it stays at. We refused the last increase request since it looked like he was strong-arming us into it. After that, he cancelled the next two tutoring sessions with her, giving different excuses. There was no sense of responsibility or concern. He was even charging for 5 minutes over the hour. An extra $10-15 would not have made a big difference to us, but we refused to pay since he pulled this before finals and then didn't follow through. He should be taken off WyzAnt's site since he is giving all the tutors a bad name. We would not recommend this individual to anyone.
This review was written by the mother of the student, not the student herself. Contrary to the erroneous claims made by this mother, I effectively coached this student and provided her with top-notch tricks, practice and quizzes, receiving verbal confirmation from this student on numerous occasions regarding how helpful I was to her learning process. It was a pleasure tutoring this student. This student's mother has failed to understand that tutors on WyzAnt are allowed to request a rate increase. This student was my first student ever through WyzAnt and I quickly realized (after beginning to tutor this student) that $40 an hour (considering WyzAnt's commission and the fact that I had to pay as much as $6 to park to tutor this student and drive 63.4 miles round-trip to tutor her) was far too little. It was actually costing me money to tutor this student. This student's mother was consistently inflexible throughout my time spent tutoring this student. The mother only responded or voiced concern when she wanted to complain. I merely requested a rate change so that I could cover the expenses of tutoring this student and make a little bit of money in the process, just like every other tutor on WyzAnt. Furthermore, during the final two weeks of this student's course, my best friend and grandfather passed away. My grandfather was ending his year-long battle with leukemia, so I had to be with him during the last week and a half of his life. He was my priority during this time. I wish this student the best and realize that miscommunication occurs. It would have been nice for the mother to communicate with me professionally regarding her concerns and matters that require clarification instead of assuming the worst and taking so much time to write a review with the intent to dissuade future students from seeking my expert tutoring.
