About Michael

My name is Michael and am an economics graduate student at California State University Fullerton who has recently finished my course work. After 6 years of economics studies, I am now looking to use my accumulated knowledge to help you. I have also had extensive work experience in the field of economics both as a researcher on several papers that will be published in the coming year and as an economic consultant in the private industry. I can help in both Macro and Microeconomics, as well as various other economic fields. During my time in college I was also captain of the speech and debate team and won over 30 speaking awards, including a national championship. My experience in speech and debate gave me a firm grasp on public speaking and argumentation which I can impart to you. Contact me if you are interested in a friendly and outgoing tutor. I look forward to helping you reach your maximum potential. My name is Michael and am an economics graduate student at California State University Fullerton who has recently finished my course work.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a BA in economics and have completed 2 years worth of MA level coursework. Through my 6 years of education I have completed math from pre-algebra all the way to linear algebra. My math focused major has given me a strong foundation to be able to tutor in various mathematics levels.

Algebra 2

I completed Algebra 2 while getting my bachelors in economics and have already helped tutor several of my classmates in the subject. I also use key concepts from Algebra 2 in my every day work in the economics field.

Economics

I have a BA in Economics from California State University Fullerton as well as 2 years coursework in the MA program at CSU Fullerton. I have worked as an economic consultant for 2 years during my undergraduate program and was a research assistant on several economic papers during my graduate coursework.

Prealgebra

Having now tutored in algebra 1 and algebra 2 for a almost a year, being able to teach prealgebra is a very easy task. I have already worked with several younger students who are taking algebra 1 but have had to have a refresher on prealgebra which I have helped to give them.

Public Speaking

I was part of the speech and debate team at my college for 3 years. I was captain of the team for 2 years and won 30 awards in debate, impromptu, and extemporaneous speaking both in local tournaments and in national tournaments. I have a deep experience pool in public speaking and was often asked by my professors to give example speeches in their classes for their students to follow. I have learned several techniques to becoming an effective public speaker over the years, which I believe makes me qualified to tutor in this subject.

Very helpful and patient tutor!

Michael was great and very helpful! I was ready to drop my class, but he was able to help me understand the concepts by breaking it down and by explaining Econ in a more relatable way than the textbook. Several light bulb moments during the tutor session. Was also very patient and would explain it differently until I understood it. Feel confident going into my first exam because of his help.
