Very knowledgeable and patient

Michael teaches my son Geometry. My son for once looks forward to his class. He explains the concepts so well and makes it easy to understand. He is very punctual and makes learning geometry so much fun for my son. Michael goes beyond the curriculum to explain things better. All in all he is an awesome teacher.

Great teaching skills!

My younger brother shared that Michael helped him clearly understand concepts he could not understand at all before! He said Michael worked with him in such an efficient way.

Rachel, 8 lessons with Michael

Good Conceptual Explanation

Michael is able to get across challenging concepts. It immediately helped my daughter feel comfortable with particular topics such as Integral. This is in contrast to some tutors mechanically teaching the steps. Hoping that as she works with Michael she will be inspired to not run away from Mathematics.

Solid tutor

Micheal was accommodating and he led my son to understand a few concepts that were giving him trouble. We would definitely schedule more lessons with him in the future.

Extremely helpful tutor!

Thanks to Michael's expert tutelage, my son's confidence in and enjoyment of geometry have skyrocketed, not to mention his homework grades and test scores. We are very grateful to Michael.

Outstanding Math Tutor

Michael did about 10 sessions of pre-calculus classes with my son. He is super smart and makes hard problems easy to solve. He is definitely the best math tutor! We are lucky to find such an outstanding tutor.

Great Precalculus Honors tutor

Michael is punctual, knowledgeable, caring, and devoted in teaching my daughter Precalculus Honors Subject. My daughter was excited to have more math sessions with Michael. Thank you, Michael.

Tiffany, 5 lessons with Michael

Great teacher!

My Daughter finds her lessons with Michael to be very illuminating. She finds it much easier to understand concepts with the way Michael lays out the concepts in intuitive and progressive ways for her.

Very effective tutor

My son struggled with Honors Precalculus at the beginning of the first semester - he got Bs and Cs on tests & quizzes. Immediately after starting tutoring sessions with Michael, my son's test scores dramatically improved to As. He ended up getting 95% on his final exam and finishing the semester with a solid A! Thanks, Michael! You are an awesome tutor!
