Hello, thank you for viewing my profile.
I have over five years of experience tutoring students of various ages and backgrounds; including middle, high school, college, and returning adult students. I have worked for tutoring agencies, colleges, and privately. I am comfortable tutoring students one on one, or in groups.
I focus on subjects related to Math, Engineering, and Science. The subjects I tutor are SAT Math, ACT Math, GRE Math, Prealgebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus I, Calculus II, and Physics. I also tutor college level electrical engineering course material; this includes: DSP, Digital Systems, DC and AC Circuits, LaPlace & Fourier Transforms, and Electronics. I am also very adept at helping students with their MATLAB, C, and Computer Programming questions.
Please see my bio and testimonials below. Thank you!
I have been a resident of Portland for over nine years. I worked for two years tutoring students for SAT, and ACT preparation at the Institute of College Information; a company formerly located on the Marylhurst University campus outside of Lake Oswego, OR. I also privately tutored students in Math during that time.
I possess Bachelor of Science degrees in both Biological Science, and Electrical Engineering (Cum Laude). During college, I tutored undergraduate students; as an employee of the college, privately in groups of one or more, and informally (because if you can't teach it ... you don't know it!).
I have worked as an engineer and technician for most of my life. I have been employed in the biomedical, audio engineering, and electronics industries. I volunteer at Free Geek, and Bikes for Humanity; two great organizations in Portland, OR that empower people, and help the planet.My hobbies are sound recording and mixing, competitive cycling, and nordic skate skiing.
Former Adult Student Leslie A. Writes:
"To Whom It May Concern, Michael J. has been an exemplary tutor to many students, myself included. His patience and knowledge of many subjects allows him to build confidence and knowledge in his students. With his assistance I have been able complete many courses, including Electronic, Circuits I, II and III. I have suggested him to several different students for those who are struggling, each of whom have done very well within their classes. It is my hope that he will continue to use his gifts to tutor others. Respectfully, Leslie A."
