Bio

When I first decided to attend college at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, I thought I wanted to be a musician. Over time, I realized that I wanted to challenge myself further and stretch my academic horizons. I transferred to Temple University, where I received a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and a minor in economics.

When I first decided to attend college at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, I thought I wanted to be a musician. Over time, I realized that I wanted to challenge myself further and stretch my academic horizons. I transferred to Temple University, where I received a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and a minor in economics. Upon entering the work force, my passion for learning and challenging myself never dwindled. Dissatisfied with my career path, I knew I wanted more. As I began taking advanced economics classes, I realized my true love was in mathematics and science. I wanted to solve problems by applying math and science.

Within a few years, I moved to California and was accepted into an engineering program at UC Davis. As I completed my engineering coursework, I developed a passion for advanced mathematics, physics, and chemistry. I was a straight A student in 3 years of college level coursework, including precalculus, calculus, vector calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, physics (mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and optics and modern) and general chemistry. Not only did I enjoy learning this material myself, but I realized I wanted to help others gain insight into this complex realm of academics. I began working in the college's learning center as a mathematics tutor, discovering that helping students overcome obstacles and aid in their academic success was extremely rewarding.

Over the past 4 years, I have been tutoring math, physics, and chemistry in one-on-one, group, and online sessions. I have utilized a variety of teaching techniques and have worked with students of varying abilities. From students who require enrichment to students who have learning differences such as ADHD, my teaching methods can help even the most reluctant learners achieve success. I have also found that, for many students, online sessions can be the most productive. Using programs such as Google docs, Skype, and Microsoft Paint, I have developed a plethora of user friendly tools that optimize online communication while creating an ideal learning environment for students in the comfort of their own home.

I am excited to share my passion for math and science with you! No matter how difficult the material, I can help make these subjects accessible and understandable. With a little time and effort, I can help you unlock the secrets that math and science hold.

Humor with patience.

Michael helped me go over my Calculus for Business homework. I was struggling and Michael asked me thoughtful and insightful questions. We worked through my issues, wouldn't let me slack off, and got me back on track. Thank you so much, Michael!
