Bio

I have extensive experience as a tutor and teacher. I prefer tutoring because I find that it works better for focusing on the needs of the student. Nevertheless, I recently worked as a secondary school teacher for a local high school district.

The knowledge I acquired in my fields required years of intense studies. I learn and tutor concepts and fundamentals, not quick memorization or speedy solutions. This approach will give you a solid base in the subjects that you want to learn, as...

I have extensive experience as a tutor and teacher. I prefer tutoring because I find that it works better for focusing on the needs of the student. Nevertheless, I recently worked as a secondary school teacher for a local high school district.

The knowledge I acquired in my fields required years of intense studies. I learn and tutor concepts and fundamentals, not quick memorization or speedy solutions. This approach will give you a solid base in the subjects that you want to learn, as opposed to a tutor whose subjects came to him quickly and easily.

I received good grades in math courses at university including through Real Analysis I. The same is true of my undergraduate and graduate level coursework in statistics. I was the instructor of Introductory Statistics for 3 semesters at a community college in SF.

Semi-native speaker of French who has lived in metropolitan France for a total of almost 2 years. I received a grade of A+ in a French Phonetics course at a UC school.

I have several master's degrees in both economics and international finance. I also have several semesters and quarters of experience as a UC teaching assistant in economics. I was the instructor for several semesters of economics courses at Northern California community colleges.

Knowledgeable tutor

Michael was very helpful in reviewing the information I had brought to the session. He was able to go through my solutions and then provide additional help in areas where I could have strengthened my arguments.

Ronnie, 1 lesson with Michael

Excellent tutor

Michael is helping me with the rather steep learning curve in Excel, and he's also helped me in reviewing lessons for my finite math class. He's a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend him.

Tony, 2 lessons with Michael

Very patient and thorough

Michael was great at letting me try to figure things out and reinforce the correct while explaining the incorrect. My first time ever having to use a tutor so this worked wonderfully.

Rebeca, 1 lesson with Michael

Best tutor

Unlike some other tutors I have encountered, he doesn't guess the answers. He knows exactly what he doing. I will recommend to anyone who needs help.

Nestly, 4 lessons with Michael

He is patient and explains things so that you can understand them and you actually can retain the information he teaches you. Amen. Great Job Michael! Muchos Gracias!

He helped me with my class work that I was struggling with for the past week. Now I totally understand how to get to the solution. I will use his services again!
