Tutored for Olympic College. Started with Organic Chemistry and expanded to include Algebra through Calculus and most of the sciences. I was well liked by most of my students and was asked by them to help with other subjects (such as English or Music) that I had to decline.
Mostly my working premise is that the student can learn the material. It is up to me to find a way of presentation that works with the student's background. I use the Socratic method a lot, asking the student questions and building on the response.
I did some Skin diving from 1966 to 1975, and back packing from 1969 to 1975, mostly in the Olympics. I've also done some sailing, both cruising and racing. I managed to place in top three a few time in the local races. I have taught others how to sail. I have some photography experience, including some amateur Astronomy photos of the Hale-Bop comet and other sky features.
I am located in Bremerton. So, working with students in King county would be too expensive in travel time and cost. Sorry.
Very Patient — My first lesson with Michael went well. He helped me understand and work through a word problem using two vectors to find the magnitude and direction. Michael was patient and thorough. I’m very appreciative for the guidance. Reviewing the algebra equations was most helpful. Thank you ...
