I am an experienced professional with a successful record of going above and beyond to help students be successful. I have had more than 10 years of experience in teaching and/or tutoring Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics of all levels from 9th grade to AP and college classes, both in the lab and classroom. I have an exceptional ability to work with parents and students to facilitate learning, growth and development. In addition to math and science I am passionate about the humanities and also tutor subjects including English, writing, history, social studies, bible studies and more. Please see my profile for a complete list.
I have a strong passion for helping students succeed. Recognizing that every student is different, I study my students to see how they best learn and understand information. I then use the strategies that are most in harmony with their natural learning style to facilitate deep and meaningful learning and retention of that learning.
I am certified to work with students who have Autism Spectrum Disorders, which includes autism, Aspergers, and other associated learning disabilities. I have worked with such students in an inclusion environment where the students have been in normal classrooms. Use of visual and graphic organizers, structuring spaces, and helping the students to develop clear organizational frameworks are key to helping them to adjust to a normal class situation.
I've taken multiple theology classes in college, including "Understanding the Bible". I have also read and studied scripture extensively with small groups and independently. I have led several Bible studies. I have taught religious education and been an RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) instructor for a large Catholic parish. I have read a number of biblical commentaries and exegesis works from the Fathers of the Church and other sources. Studying, understanding, and living the Word of God is my primary focus and purpose in life.

My father has taught me the art of making breads and cooking. He is a professional cook and baker, who has also worked as a pastry chef. I have developed some absolutely unique and original recipes in the Italian food genre. My specialty is in baking and Italian cuisine. I do have some propensity for Tex-Mex and other cooking styles as well.
I was a pre-med student for a while before I switched to teaching. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a chemistry degree. I have mastery over the fields of chemistry, organic chemistry, and writing. I also have a strong background in physics (a minor in my degree). I have personally assisted a number of students preparing for the MCAT improve their scores.
I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. I've gotten A's for both semesters of Organic Chemistry and scored in the 95th percentile on the ACS standardized examination in Organic Chemistry. I also was a tutor and lab assistant in college for 2 years at the University of Dallas.
I am a certified Texas teacher in Chemistry, Physics, and Math. I have led TAKS review sessions, engaged in highly successful TAKS tutoring one on one with struggling students. At the school where I taught, we achieved some of the highest results in the state, being one of the upper tier Exemplary schools. I have also collaborated with other teachers and administrators to develop strategies to help students raise scores on the TAKS.
I have played, coached, and refereed in various leagues for about 8 years. I have studied the mechanics of the game, the physics of ball control, and tactics and strategies of the game. I specialize with the basics, assisting students of the game in developing greater ball control in bumping and setting and better power and positioning in spiking.

Great tutor! — Michael is an answer to my prayers. He is able to take a difficult subject matter and explain it in a way that makes it make sense. Also, we love the option of online tutoring. Not only is my daughter able to get valuable help now, but also will be able to continue her Organic Chemistry II sessions when she goes back to college next week. Awesome! ...
