About MICHAEL

I have been teaching and tutoring mathematics, natural and social sciences for over 16 years. I have a Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering, a Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA) and Associate degrees in computer information system. I attended universities and colleges both in Nigeria and the United States.

I have also worked in the manufacturing and service industries, where my knowledge of math and science have been greatly applied. My love for tutoring stems from the fact that every student can succeed in these subjects if the method of tutoring is tailored to the individual's needs and understanding. Therefore, my tutoring is student-centered. I also feel happy when I see that I have made a positive impact on my students. My field experience also affords me the ability to supplement my teaching with practical examples. I taught and tutored in a two-year college for 7 years; with this experience, I know what students need to succeed in the college as well as concepts needed by the middle and high school students to prepare effectively for college. My experience in different educational systems enable me to help students from any background.

My tutoring competences include all k-12 mathematics areas, including elementary mathematics, Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 with Trigonometry, PreCalculus, Calculus, Finite mathematics, Discrete Mathematics, Statistics (Basic and Intermediate), Chemistry. Other courses tutored are Principles of accounting, Accounting for managers, Basic Finance, as well as ACT and SAT preparation. I am abreast of the common core standards, and I am also a part-time teacher in one of the city schools. Having taught mathematics in the middle and high schools, and a two-year college, I possess the experience of knowing what your teacher requires of you to complete your homework and other assignments. I tutor graduate students in statistics and Business courses. My tutoring sessions are always interactive to ensure that the student is fully active throughout the period. I have tutored students from various school districts, including Hoover City Schools, Birmingham City Schools, Shelby Schools and many others. My undergraduate students have been from different colleges and universities.

My approach to tutoring has always been to employ the right method that the student can understand and participate in, as there are more than one method to solving a problem. My method is student-centered. I am very much concerned about my students' success, because I believe that every person can be taught to understand and enjoy mathematics. We need mathematics in our lives and it is crucial for success in the college. Please contact me and I will respond to your request in less than 24 hours. My charges are moderate, and you will get value for your money. In addition to mathematics, I can also help the elementary and middle school students in all the subjects they are enrolled in as a package. My students have always scored at least two grades up. I also prepare students for the next grade during the summer. I have received accolades from students and parents for helping the students succeed in their respective courses.
