My name is Michael. I grew up in Bloomingdale, graduated from Lake Park High School in Roselle, and returned to Itasca in 2001 to be closer to family. I married my high school sweetheart 16 years ago and now have two daughters (5th grade and 2nd grade) and our new Golden Retriever puppy, Peaches.
Learning is truly my passion. I tutored advanced math through college, went on to graduate school to learn more about how people learn, and have been in the education and training field for over 15 years, working with audiences of all ages. For me, it's all about helping students figure out whatever is challenging them, and seeing their joy and confidence grow as concepts start to click. As a tutor, my job is to create an opportunity for students to learn...to guide them. I can't learn it for them, but I can ask the right questions, pick the right examples, and offer the right hints to help them unlock their potential. Learning is personal, so my goal is to connect with each and every student in whatever way is most helpful to them.
I look forward to working with you and your children!
