About Michael


Bio

I am a retired U.S. Air Force officer who has started a second career as a high school teacher. I have taught AP Physics C, AP Physics 1, Physics, Physical Science, Geometry and Algebra in the classroom, and I previously worked for a semester as a school-sponsored math and science tutor. I have experience in numerous subjects, having taught or tutored students in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, and AP Physics.

I am a retired U.S. Air Force officer who has started a second career as a high school teacher. I have taught AP Physics C, AP Physics 1, Physics, Physical Science, Geometry and Algebra in the classroom, and I previously worked for a semester as a school-sponsored math and science tutor. I have experience in numerous subjects, having taught or tutored students in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, and AP Physics.

I believe I can achieve uncommon success as a tutor by striving for excellence, one student at a time. I recognize that students learn in different ways and at varying rates; they are motivated by different factors and achieve comprehension in different ways. Superior teachers adapt styles to situations and individuals to find ways to reach and motivate each individual. As a tutor, I seek to get to know each and every one of my students, I will understand their strengths and their challenges, and I will adapt my teaching style and methods to reach each and every one.

Knowledgeable and Engaging

Michael is very helpful! He explained concepts that I had never known before very clearly, showing me very helpful simulations and examples along the way. He is also very flexible in terms of timing. I really enjoy learning from Michael!

Helpful

Michael was able to teach concepts in such a way that my son could comprehend. These tutoring sessions will continue as he prepares for the AP Physics exam. My son found so much value in 1 session alone!

Highly Recommend! Goes Over and Beyond!

Michael has gone over and beyond while tutoring me in Physics. He has created a study guide to help me study for tests. He teaches in areas where I need help, reviews homework assignments focusing on problems I missed and helped me prepare for my first physics test. He was patient. Made sure I understood before moving on. Explained it in a way making it easier for me to follow. I would highly recommend Michael as a tutor.

Knowledge and patient

I had trouble with Conservation of Energy problems. Michael helped me understand what concepts needed to be applied to solve problems. How to identify what method to use. It was a very informative session. I would definitely recommend Michael to my friends.

First Session A Success!

Thank you for your instructional calculus session with my son, Michael. After the first session he came home very positive and had a better understanding of the lessons discussed. He said your way of explaining was much easier than his current high school teacher. He said he would definitely ask for your help again. Thank you!

Awesome tutor

Mike is the perfect tutor for AP Calc and AP Physics. He was able to easily relate to the student and explain the subject matter. He is professional and accommodating when it comes to schedules. We look forward to working with him again.
