About Michael

My degree is in Biology, but I primarily tutor math because that, understandably, is where there is most demand. I've been doing so since 1987. I've tutored young and old, individuals and groups, rich and poor, those in need of remedial work and those wanting to get an "A". Though I don't truly need more business, a colleague told me about WyzAnt -- and I want to try it.

I believe that comprehension and performance are equally important to learning a subject and that each facilitates the other. Beyond that, I try to tailor my approach to my student's learning style. I recognize the need to be patient, and enjoy being humorous as well. I am a native speaker of American English, but can read and write in Commonwealth English, as well.

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.

Biology

I have degrees in Biology (BS, 1987) and Biomathematics (MS, 2004) from UCLA. I enjoy reading news articles about scientific breakthroughs and the scientific method. I've tutored many students in Biology, Ecology, and Chemistry -- and one in Biochemistry, but that was tough!
