Highly-experienced Calculus, Economics, and Statistics Tutor

Michael S.
Learning has always been a passion in my life. Academic learning, life experience, motivational books. Just name it. I have helped and tutored grade levels from elementary to college, where I majored in Chemical Engineering. I took time to understand concepts and extended these understandings to different subjects. I took AP science, math, history and social science courses in high school and continued my intellectual pursuits in college.

I have usually tutored math and science subjects in...

Macroeconomics,
#### Macroeconomics

I have taken multiple classes in economics. In high school, I aced both AP Macro and AP Micro exams. I continued to develop a fascination and appreciation for both macroeconomics (inflation, GDP, money supply, unemployment) and furthered my studies in upper division microeconomics.

Microeconomics,
#### Microeconomics

I have worked with microeconomics students at all levels, from AP Microeconomics to MBA students. My strengths are AP Macro/AP Micro, principles of macro/micro, and intermediate microeconomics.

Microsoft Excel,
#### Microsoft Excel

I first encountered Excel in college behind many of my engineering peers. After seeing the importance of Excel in labs and in the workplace, I began to commit hours to learning how use formulas and macros. In my professional career, I broadened my scope to make user-friendly spreadsheets that were both functional and visually appealing.

Microsoft PowerPoint,
#### Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint sprung into my life when I was in an undergrad research program and had to learn it to make research posters. After noticing its usefulness, I began to apply PowerPoint in other areas like in automated (timed) professional presentations, dynamic crowd-engagement tools, and fun, memorable slideshows for family events. I have worked with co-workers and cohorts to show them the basic and intermediate level PowerPoint functions. They have often taken those core elements and explored their creativity, often surprising and impressing their audiences.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I teach Algebra with the same structure that I used when I learned it. I have helped middle school and high school students alike with success. It takes patience because there are mathematical manipulation and deals with the abstract concept of a variable. Once we can get past these areas, we can get to more complicated topics more comfortably.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I am able to teach and help students understand topics from algebra to calculus. Often times, algebra is rushed through without the proper framework. With the right structure, it can definitely be learned. I have assisted many students in identifying any underlying deficiencies math fundamentals, which often make learning algebra more difficult than it should be.

Biology,
#### Biology

I took AP Bio in high school. In college, I took one year of lower division and upper division courses in advanced genetics, biochemistry, bioenergetics.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I have taken calculus on three different levels: high school (AP Calculus Score = 5), community college (A+), and university level (B+, A, A). I have delved into differential, integral, multivariate and vector calculus with applications in engineering.
I have taught students and taken them through both the theoretical and practical applications. Theory is important to understand how to visualize. Applications are critical for hands-on understanding and to build the mathematics into our physical world. After all, calculus was developed to help communicate and model the world around us.
Nerdy aside: what piqued my interest in this subject was when I was awestruck to find out that y = x^2 and y = 2x were related. How could a parabola and straight line be possibly related? Answer: Calculus!

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

I've taken AP Chemistry in high school. My college prerequisites were (Honors) General Chem, Organic Chem and Physical Chem. I've worked on research projects in chemistry. I have been able to teach many peers in all chemistry subjects, from theory to lab application.

Differential Equations,
#### Differential Equations

Differential Equations is a critical tool for engineers. Many of their further engineering courses are dependent upon differential equations to describe the phenomena that they will be studying. I have taken DE in my engineering program, plus I have studied PDEs and ODEs. I have worked with Diff Eq students who have both excelled in their coursework.

## great!

Learned new ways to use my calculator in statistics problems. So much easier to understand step by step with Michael

Elizabeth, 4 lessons with Michael

## A real teacher not just a tutor

Mike got so much done in his first session with my son, who was falling behind in AP Microeconomics. My son said "you can tell he's a real teacher," which is exactly what I was hoping for -- someone who not only knows the material, but enjoys teaching it to others. He followed up with a detailed and thoughtful session note with specific suggestions for the future. We will definitely be booking future sessions with Mike, probably weekly. Thank you, Mike!

Michele, 11 lessons with Michael

## great teacher! very easy to learn from

Helped me understand multiple different things and taught me new ways to do them even easier. And it was all super easy to follow.

Zack, 2 lessons with Michael

## Extremely knowledgable, thoughtful and prepared.

I spent 8 weeks with Michael covering multiple topics in my MBA class and went from lost to an A student. Michael makes extremely complex concepts, very simple. He goes above and beyond to ensure i understand the material and can elaborate the material back to him. He’s always prepared and patient. Highly recommend and easily a 5-star tutor. I plan to using him again.

David, 9 lessons with Michael

## Amazing help

Micheal is helping me catch up in my course tremendously. He goes the extra mile for the students in order to understand and to learn the material that the professor is trying to teach them.

Brian, 1 lesson with Michael

## Best Tutor EVER!!

This was super helpful!! Michael went through the problems I was having a hard time with and explained them step by step. He also took his time going through the problem and lesson on Perfect Competition. He also provided me with practice problems to help me master the topics i am struggling in.. Michael is an amazing tutor and I am definitely going to book another session with him! He is a great tutor and I highly recommend him!

Myriam, 2 lessons with Michael

## Extremely knowledgable, thoughtful and prepared.

Michael was extremely prepared to go over the lesson with a presentation and notes. His patience is great for people like me that have a lot of questions or need to go over the same material a few times before it sticks. Michael is so good that after the first session, I plan to use him throughout my course. Highly recommend and easily a 5-star tutor.

David, 9 lessons with Michael

## Microeconomics- Game Theory, Nash Equilibrium, etc.

Mike walked me through Game theory very patiently and made sure I understood it before we ended our lesson. I appreciate his style of teaching because I am extremely nervous about this class but after a session with Mike, I feel 100% better.

Anthea, 8 lessons with Michael

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Michael was very helpful in Microeconomics, he took the time to walk through each problem step by step which I appreciated immensely. He came to the session prepared and I was able to make the best of our time. I will definitely use him again for Microeconomics help!

Anthea, 8 lessons with Michael

## Excellent Tutor!

Michael is an excellent Tutor! His patience and exceptional knowledge of excel was awesome! I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding tutor.
