I began my teaching career at The Princeton Review and have been teaching SAT/ACT/GRE prep courses for over 10 years. During that time I have successfully taught more than 1000 students in a variety of settings, including full-length courses and individual tutoring sessions. My depth and breadth of experience working with high school and college students has shaped me into an educator with an enviable skill set.

I am a creative and dynamic teacher who listens to his students and addresses their needs. I am a problem solver and patient tutor when teaching tough concepts while remaining adaptive to the needs of the student in order to quickly identify concepts that need further exploration. I have a friendly and gregarious teaching style that invites questions and conversation. One of my great strengths is being adept at pattern recognition when analyzing students’ tests so that my students and I can spend our time together most efficiently. I provide feedback to parents on a frequent basis as to the student’s progress. Furthermore, I actively work on self-improvement and growth as an educator.

ACT Science

I have helped to de-mystify the Science section for literally hundreds of students. The most important thing to remember is that it is not really a science test at all, but actually a test of how well you read charts and graphs. If you get really good at finding the proper clues in the questions the answers become much easier to find. I would be happy to give you some pointers!

Knowledgeable and easy to communicate

So far my daughter had few lessons with him over the summer to prepare for ACT. My daughter tells me that he thoroughly knows the materials and helps her with questions right away. He sends me progress report right after the lesson to communicate with me as well. We are very pleased.

Excellent in all ways!

Michael is an excellent tutor! He is intelligent, patient, know the material, and clearly understands how to prep someone for the GRE or other entrance exams. He is excellent at explaining complex problems, showing how to break down the steps, and teaching the skills needed to solve problems accurately and efficiently. Also, he is a really nice and cool guy. Preparing for this exam can feel daunting, but Michael has given me the confidence and the tools needed to succeed. His years of professionally teaching exam preparation for the Princeton Review clearly shows and is an asset. He also has a passion for tutoring, which not only makes sessions productive but enjoyable. I thought working on my mathematics would be boring and miserable, but incredibly, Michael has made it really fun!

Great tutor for ACT review.

Michael does a good job of helping to prepare for the ACT. Having taught at Princeton Review, he brings knowledge of not just the subject matter, but also of how to take the test. He gave my son good tips on how to effectively strategize for the test.
