About Michael

I have two years of experience teaching high school math (Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, SAT Prep); three years as a middle school teacher (6th grade, Pre-algebra, and Algebra); four years as a substitute (middle school and high school); and over six years as a tutor (Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Pre-calculus, SAT and ACT Prep -- middle school, high school, and college).

I'm good at what I do and have been told by several of my teacher colleagues that I teach math at a "high level." I strive to bring that excellence to the classroom every day and encourage my students to not only be successful in math but in life as well.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I am certified in math in both Connecticut and New York, plus I currently tutor other WyzAnt students in ACT (and SAT) Math. And FYI, I scored a perfect 8 out of 8 on the WyzAnt.com ACT Math certification test. You'll definitely want to contact me for your ACT Math tutoring needs!

Algebra 1

I am certified in math in both Connecticut and New York, plus I currently teach Algebra 1. And FYI, I scored a perfect 10 out of 10 on the WyzAnt.com Algebra 1 certification test. You'll definitely want to contact me for your algebra tutoring needs!

Algebra 2

I am certified in math in both Connecticut and New York, plus I previously taught Algebra 2. And FYI, I scored a perfect 10 out of 10 on the WyzAnt.com Algebra 2 certification test. You'll definitely want to contact me for your Algebra 2 tutoring needs!

Elementary Math

I currently teach middle school math (Grades 6-8) and also taught high school math for two years. In addition, I scored a perfect 10-out-of-10 on the WyzAnt Elementary Math certification test. I know I can help your child succeed--and excel--in this subject. Please email me for all your math tutoring needs!

Geometry

Not only did I teach Geometry for two years, I got a perfect 10 out of 10 on the WyzAnt Geometry certification quiz!

Prealgebra

Not only do I currently teach pre-algebra, but I also scored a perfect 10-out-of-10 on the WyzAnt.com pre-algebra certification test!

PSAT

Even though I'm certified only as a grade 7-12 math teacher, I passed the WyzAnt.com PSAT certification test with a perfect score of 10 out of 10. (This test consisted of 2 general knowledge questions about the PSAT itself, 6 English questions, and 2 math questions.) Besides this, I have over four years' experience prepping students for the SAT and ACT, so I know I'd be a great PSAT tutor for your son or daughter!

Regents

Over the last four years, I have successfully tutored students in passing various math Regents, including algebra and geometry, raising their base scores by an average of 30-50%.

SAT Math

I taught SAT Math for two years in school and have tutored students "on the side" for over five years. My students' scores go up by 150-200 points, on average, from their first practice test to their last practice test (generally, as few as 4 to as many as 8). And FYI, I scored a perfect 10 out of 10 on the WyzAnt.com SAT Math certification test.

You definitely want to give me a call -- I know I can help improve your SAT scores!

Wonderful math tutor

I just wanted to say thank you so much again. My son communicated to me how appreciative he is of and how helpful he finds your tutoring. He appreciates your experience as a math teacher, your knowledge of what high school teachers expect, and that you are able to explain math concepts in ways he finds easy to understand. Thank you so much.
