Enjoy the flexibility and convenience of private in-home instruction. My name is Michael and I'm an engineer and teacher. I earned a B.S. in mechanical engineering from Penn State University and a secondary teacher certification in mathematics from Cabrini College. As such, I offer help with a mix of engineering and math courses.

Many students benefit from one-on-one lessons, which enables them to learn in their own way. The added support builds confidence and inspires life long learning. All ages and skill levels, whether individuals or small groups, are welcome.

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.

AutoCAD

Before entering the education world, I worked for 3 years at Tube City IMS in Horsham, PA as a CAD designer/engineer. I quickly became an expert in both Autodesk AutoCAD and Inventor programs for 2d and 3d drafting. I was the go-to guy when anyone in my office needed help doing something in the program and I enjoyed teaching them. This is when I decided to embark on a career in education.

Praxis

I took the Praxis I in January 2011 and received a passing score. I took the Praxis II test 0061 in Mathematics and received a passing score.

Hi Theresa,   Firstly, keep in mind that f(x) denotes a function.  It does NOT mean, f times x. Ok, for part a, substitute -2 anywhere you see an x like so, f(-2) = (2(-2) - 3)/((-2)+5). Then simplify.  Your turn! f(-2) = ?   For part b, you must state...

Say that there is a very expensive dress that you want to purchase, but cannot afford.  However, for whatever reason, the price of the dress is being reduced by 5% each week.  So, if you wanted to buy the dress after one week, you would figure that the price is 95% of the original price...

Hey Dalia,   We can do this without computing the entire expansion.  Notice that the first term will have an (x^2)^8, the second will have (x^2)^7 or x^14, and so on.  Following this pattern, it will be the fourth term that will contain x^10 since (x^2)^5 = x^10.  Now,...

Off to a good start. — My daughter looked at her first tutoring session much like she would view going to the dentist. Michael seems to take his time and let my daughter open up about her issues with geometry and her general dislike of math. Through out the hour I could hear my daughter become more communicative and involved in the lesson. While of course she didn't say "I loved that, mom" and I got the stand answer ...
