I have been doing geological, paleontological, and archaeological work for approximately 11 years. I currently work for an environmental consulting firm performing geological and paleontological assessments, and groundwater studies for development and energy projects in the western states. My research in paleontology has been focused on mammals of the Cenozoic, fossilized trackways, and morphology of proboscideans. I also continue to work as an archaeologist, with expertise in southwest prehistoric cultures. As a consultant I have performed numerous archaeological surveys, data recovery projects, and excavations in the southwest. I have a BA in archaeology and a MS in paleontology.

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

Archaeology

I have a Bachelor's Degree in anthropology where my emphasis was in archaeology. I have worked as an archaeologist for 8 years in the environmental consulting field. This type of work includes archaeological surveys, data recovery, mitigation and excavation of archaeological sites.

Geology

I have a master's degree in Paleontology with a minor in geology. For my graduate work I studied geological formations, sedimentology, quaternary geology, historical geology, physical geology, vertebrate morphology, and fossil identification. I am currently pursuing research on mammoth and mastodons in Arizona as well as several Pleistocene faunas. I work as a geologist/paleontologist for an environmental consulting firm in Phoenix.

Great tutor — I could not ask for a better tutor! Michael gave detailed examples on the information I was confused on. He made sure I understood every single item, illustrating some in sketches, notes, etc. Worth the time, money, and effort! Highly recommend Michael for any of your tutoring needs! ...
