I have 28 years of tutoring, teaching, and curriculum development experience with teenagers and young adult learners, was selected from 60 fellow instructors as the Instructor of the Year, and I am a qualified Master Training Specialist (MTS). The MTS qualification is a recognition of instructors who have demonstrated excellence, technical competence, and application of instructional methodology to provide quality instruction. The certification includes semester hours in the fields of learning framework, instructional methodology, and educational leadership.

My applicable skills include the areas of didactic instructor, facilitator, curriculum manager, computer based training, and student development.

I was in the healthcare field for 20 years while in the military and have been retired since 2012. Since that time I have been a stay-at-home-dad with my three daughters and a full-time student. My volunteer work includes serving at Helen Hunt Jackson Elementary School and Rancho Community Church. My personal hobbies include rebuilding lawn mower engines with my daughters.

My experience educating young adult learners has enhanced my experience at Helen Hunt Jackson Elementary School where I assist educators by utilizing instructional methodologies during interactions with students in group and individual formats to strengthen vocabulary skills, reading comprehension, and mathematic abilities. My teaching experience at Rancho Community Church allows me to lead first through third grade children in their search for religion and deepen the faith and knowledge of those who are already Christians.

Nursing

My 20 years of professional healthcare employment, in both clinical and administrative areas, gives me a vast foundation of experience. This experience, and the resulting knowledge, allows me to have a fundamental understanding of the subjects that nursing students are required to address in their college writing. My healthcare experience, and proficiency and expertise in the American Psychological Association (APA) writing style, has attracted tutoring clients from across the country. After working together for several weeks, one such client reported an increase in GPA from 74% to 90%. This grade increase enabled the client to pass the course that they were enrolled in at the time.

Test Preparation

AFOQT,

AFOQT

As a senior member and leader in several military commands, I had the responsibility of training active duty officers. Among other subjects, teaching specific military applications of mathematics that is included in the AFOQT exam was integral to success of the junior officers. Specifically, the teaching I did was heavily focused on the AFOQT concepts of proportions, angular geometry, and mathematical unit conversions. The training that I provided resulted in 100 percent of officers achieving the required competencies.
ASVAB,

ASVAB

Many of my tutoring clients have come to me after they have tried to study on their own and have failed their ASVAB exam. Most of my clients have requested help in the areas that deal with math, specifically the Mathematics Knowledge (MK) and Arithmetic Reasoning (AR). After working with me, all my clients that have retaken the ASVAB exam have earned passing scores allowing them to join the military.

Great

Michael was very understanding and thorough with all subjects. I appreciate his honesty and commitment to being a tutor. We went over many subjects and took everything one step at a time. I see my time with Michael well spent and plan on to continue my sessions with Michael.

Andrew, 1 lesson with Michael

Well prepared and full of fresh materials

Michael brought the class back to the basics with a well organized evaluation of level. Along with his deep grasp of the materials and ability to explain concepts, his supplementary materials were considerable, and came with free video explanations of how to complete each individual question. This was very useful, especially when I ran into a problem that Michael had explained, but that I had forgotten!

Thank you

My niece came away from the very first session with Michael excited and feeling confident about her future. This tutor managed to make learning interesting again for my niece in one hour. Amazing. We will definitely be back. See you in about 2 weeks Michael and thank you again

AFOQT

Michael is very patient and teaches methods that are easy to understand. Michael also teaches multiple ways of working on certain equations to find the learning methods that work for the student.

AFOQT REVIEW

Michael was very patient with me during our tutoring sessions. He helped me better understand the math knowledge and arithmetic reasoning parts of the test. Even after our sessions he provided me with practice problems so I can work on the material without him helping me. He was so dedicated in helping me and I really feel prepared to take the AFOQT.

Traian, 3 lessons with Michael

Extremely knowledgeable and helpful with identifying your specific learning style.

Michael taught me the specific math concepts for the AFOQT test, and tailored his approach to meet my objectives. He is very patient, and works with me to ensure that I understand the concepts in my own way. He also created a study plan for me to use daily to keep me on track and practice. I feel so much more confident about my abilities and I am no longer dreading my test date. He is a phenomenal tutor!

April, 4 lessons with Michael

Very knowledgeable

I’m on a time crunch to get a large amount of math back into my head and so far it’s going smoothly. I really like the method we have and the way he teaches. Everything is explained in detail, plus he always makes sure you understand the tricks and tips to prevent any mistakes that could be made with some math problems.
