About Micheal

Dear Prospective Student or Parent of a Student:

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved both to learn and to teach. Helping others, whether young or old, is extremely important to me. I have tutored a variety of ages. I love to have fun with my students and see them learn. For the past five years, I have been volunteering as a full-time teacher.

Mathematics (particularly pre-algebra and algebra) and English (particularly grammar and writing) are my strongest subjects. I employ techniques such as mnemonic devices, word associations, connecting new information to memories and older bits of information, along with humor and visual aids in order to build a strong educational foundation. I believe the adage, "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime." I do not feel tutoring is just feeding answers to a student, instead I help them grow and make the knowledge their own. This allows them to make the necessary connections in order to truly understand the material. It has been proven that people learn something more quickly when they enjoy what they're learning. I promise to help you do just that - find joy in any given subject. Much like a handrail on a staircase, I do my best to guide a student, keeping them balanced as they go through each lesson. And while math and English are my specialties, the same methods I use to tutor these subjects are be applied universally, no matter what it is you're learning.

I am experienced at public speaking and understand how nerve-racking, yet crucial, it is - and so I enjoy showing others how easy it can be to speak in front of a crowd, using exercises and helpful tips for addressing others. I cannot make the butterflies in your stomach go away when delivering a speech, but I promise to help you make them "fly in formation".

I enjoy teaching students the basics of playing the piano and reading music. After teaching myself the basics of playing the piano, I took lessons from a respected jazz teacher for two years. I was taught, not just how to play by rote, but how to improvise with music, simple techniques that add color and depth to your music; and so I promise to pass on those same skills to you.

My schedule is fairly flexible, and I am extremely patient in helping others. I guarantee you will walk away from each lesson understanding the material better and better each time. Please contact me in order to schedule our first session. I look forward to meeting you.

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.

Special Needs

Since December 2014, I have been working at the Speech and Language Development Center in Buena Park, California. I work one-on-one with students who have special needs, including autism and various physical disabilities. Each day consists of teaching math and language arts skills tailored to each student's capability, as well as assisting in altered physical education.

Highly recommend — The moment I met with Micheal prior to my sons lessons, I knew that he would be a great match with helping my son. Micheal is knowledgeable, very kind, and in one lesson I could tell a difference in my sons confidence. The first thing my freshman son said when Michael left was, "Mom thank you, he is awesome and made me feel smart." Great feeling when I know I made a great choice for my sons academ ...
