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.

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.

Michael is great!

My son is motivated to increase his SAT score and Michael has been working with him. Michael is patient and knowledgeable and has a great way of relating to my son, who isn’t always so easy to engage and stay focused when it comes to math, reading, and writing. My son already feels more confident with what he has learned from Michael so far, and is eager to continue sessions throughout the summer to bring up that score! Michael is awesome :)

Awesome Tutor - The best in Orange County

My daughter connects very well with Michael. He makes study sessions very comfortable. When he interacts with my daughter he makes the lessons enjoyable. She always looks forward to Michael's visits. Michael is very sweet, super intelligent, punctual and very professional. He is also very flexible in his work hours to accommodate our schedule. He helped my daughter to better prepare herself for the SAT which she just took. She feels very confident that she scored well and owes all of this to Michael. My daughter will be heading off to college next year and I hope she decides to stay in California, so Michael can help her along the way. As a concerned mom, Michael has truly been a huge life saver....

Excellent ESL Teacher (English as Second Language)

Micheal was an excellent teacher, we had a one to one sessions focusing on English skills. I learned a lot from him because he knows how to explain all the grammar rules in a very simple way. Also, my vocabulary has highly increased as Micheal is always prepared with a full list of new words every session. I would highly recommend Micheal to anyone who is looking for an ESL teacher. In addition, Micheal is very friendly, always on-time and never late on responding to any emails, calls, or Text messages.
