Greetings! I am Mike, a young man who is passionate about helping others learn. I have nearly five years of tutoring experience. From 2008 to 2010 I worked as a peer tutor at Sacramento City College in the areas of mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics. Since then I have continued to tutor privately via word-of-mouth references from previous students. Throughout my life and particularly during my college career I work closely with instructors in order to gain a better idea of pertinent topics for academic success in different fields. While working at Sacramento City College I received training in many learning and teaching approaches in order to reach a broader base of students. Since then, I have tutored on/off for the last 10+ years on and off of Wyzant while I've worked various positions at laboratories that varied from analyst to lab director to quality manager. I am also the former Chief Product Officer for a French AI company which gave me even more diverse real-world applications of mathematics, statistics, chemistry, and physics.

My methodology is a fluid and dynamic style that allows me to tailor lessons to each student's learning strengths and weaknesses. I have experience in tutoring people with learning disabilities and ESL students. While professionally I have not done much tutoring in English, I am very confident from my experiences that I could take this subject on as well. My personal specialty is in trying to relate lessons and scientific principles to real-world applications and situations.

Since I was a young boy teaching reading to Russian ESL students in school, I have felt strongly drawn to teaching. I even have a strong family history in instruction as my father and grandfather were both teachers at one point in their lives. I approach each lesson as a challenge to be conquered and I never give up until I feel we've reached a satisfactory understanding of the material.
