Reading, writing, and math skills are essential to obtaining an education and ultimately to a successful life. I have tutored children at most elementary and middle school levels, high school students, university students and adults. Much of my tutoring has been for ESL students.
I have had many years preparing students for the SAT, GRE, GED, ACT and various military service tests. While the ultimate results of tutoring lie with the student, I have been successful in helping to raise test scores significantly.
In addition, I have tutored students in pre-school, elementary school, high school and college who want additional help in English, reading, math, and science.
I have worked in the after school programs for No Child Left Behind at various public schools and have been successful in augmenting children's understanding of math and the language arts. As part of the after school program, I have had an extensive background check and was issued an Arizona Department of Public Safety Level One clearance card.

I just wanted to update you on our son's successful results on the SAT test he recently took. With just the few lessons (4x) you had with him, he was able to raise his SAT score 150 points from his previous score! That's right - 4 lessons! After taking the SAT he came home and stated that he thought it went really well, so we've been waiting for 2 weeks or so for the results.
Obviously, meeting with you was a fantastic success. The college he's interested in was also really impressed with the new scores and it looks like he will qualify for additional (substantially more) scholarship money.
Thanks for all your expertise!
My daughter feels really confident about her upcoming SAT test. She has had two 2 hour sessions and we will probably do two or three more. I feel she's going to be very prepared to exceed her own expectations on this test.
Michael was very prepared for our meeting. He explained what we would be covering in this lesson and the next few lessons. He was very patient and nice. I think I will learn a lot from him and really improve my ACT scores!
Quickly identified my son's weaknesses and worked with him to increase his confidence. Stressed the importance of making sure that he understood the basics before moving on to the next steps.
I'm taking a test in August.
He's been extremely helpful. I also like that this summer his schedule is flexible and works with my schedule.
Michael is very knowledgeable and organized. He is a great tutor for my son and is liked very much by both of us.
A teacher that gives assignments to keep you practicing. Explains things multiple ways to help you understand, with him I have faith I will learn what I need to learn to qualify for enlistment.
Michael came in and gave my daughter an evaluation test so we can know what areas she needs help with. Also had most up-to-date GED book.
Our son was having a very difficult time getting a decent score on the ACT test, and he had less than 5 weeks to work with our son. Michael identified his biggest weakness and worked with him not only for the test but for the future too. Our son's test score went up 4 points!
Thank you Michael!
Micheal is a really nice guy. He was very patient and answered all of my questions. I had a huge assignment with little time to spare. He gave me great feedback and used his writing expertise to get me through this assignment.
If anyone is searching for an ASVAB tutor, look no further! Mr. Michael did an amazing job with helping my son increase his test score by 32 points. Mr. Michael is a very patient and understanding instructor. He identified where my son was having difficulties and focused on overcoming them. Mr. Michael is highly recommended. He is a true gem of a tutor!
It's impossible for us to overstate how pleased we are with Michael's tutoring. Since results are what ultimately count, his patient and skillful tutoring of our son have yielded results beyond our expectations. Through his devoted guidance, our son was able to achieve a very good score on the ASVAB test and is now one major step closer to achieving his goal of serving our country in the armed forces. Thank you, Michael.
My son says he's learned more from Mike in a couple of weeks than he did all year long in high school. Mike did a wonderful job working with my son. I would highly recommend Mike for any type of tutoring subject. Results speak for themselves. My son re-took the ASVAB today and, after tutoring with Mike this summer, his score increased 17 points. A job well done Mike!
Michael helped us understand our daughter's 'lazy' approach to learning. We are now going for second wave of tutoring, focusing on reading comprehension and AIMS compliance.
I just want to take this opportunity to THANK Michael for helping me get my GED! Prior to seeing Michael I tried for 10 years to get my GED. I passed all my subjects except math. I never had a tutor help because I was embarrassed of being a 35 year old with no HS diploma and felt I was going to be judged. After failing the math part 5 times, I realized I needed help. I looked online, read some reviews and thought Michael fit my needs. Boy was I right! He was the best person I could've chosen. He's worth every penny. He helped change my life. He listened to my needs, addressed the issues I needed and came up with a game-plan that best suited me. His patience with me was awesome because I can get frustrated really easy. He was always on time and ready to go. He was able to drill math equations in my head that I never thought was possible. Michael THANK YOU!
Michael has been very patient with me. He is professional, and very easy to work with. He has me very motivated to learn and to reach my goals! Thanks a ton Michael.
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.
