About Michael

I taught Science and Math for 35 years in both High School and Middle School. I worked with students after school in a tutoring program that I started. I started and ran a math summer camp for incoming 7th graders so they could get a head start. I retired 2 years ago and I miss teaching. I have been trained in the new common core curriculum and can help students find relationships between the new and old math.

As part of my teaching style, I try to bring in real life experiences for the students to identify with. I like to use, when appropriate, hands on manipulatives to further explain difficult concepts. I have many different ways to teach the same concept, this allows me to find each student's individual learning style. I also have experience working with special education students and IEPs.

I hope to stimulate each student's interest in their education.

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.
