About Michael

Hi. I've been a tutor for more than 15 years. I'm good at solving problems and explaining my methodology to students. I'm easy going and friendly, making the sessions much more productive than with someone who lectures at you. I love math and science, and that comes through in my work as well.

I have a PhD in chemistry, so I can help with any and all levels of chemistry, ranging from introductory high school chemistry to analytical chemistry undergraduate courses.

I can also help with math up through (and including) calculus.

I hope I can help you with your tutoring needs.

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.

ACT Math

ACT math section is a lot like precalculus. There is a mix of geometry, trigonometry, and algebra. I know some tricks to get through some questions quicker, giving you more time to focus on the problems that take a bit more time.

Chemistry

I majored in chemistry as an undergraduate and went on to pursue a doctorate degree with physical chemistry as my subspecialty. I can balance equations, explain redox reactions, and do dimensional analysis. And I can show you how to do all of those things and more.

Organic Chemistry

I have a PhD in chemistry, specifically in the area of physical chemistry, but I took undergraduate courses in organic chemistry and received an "A" in each one. I'm familiar with nomenclature of organic compounds and the introductory reaction mechanisms taught in these courses.
