Mathematics and Computer Programming for Gifted Students
I work with creative gifted students and adults who want to accelerate their studies.
My gifted youth program teaches students many subjects. In elementary math fundamentals we cover patterns and algorithms alongside fundamental studies. In algebra we use video games to build understanding and practical work to build confidence in the basics of abstract math. Geometry is used to understand proof work and to gain a better understanding of algebra skills through real world examples. Depending...

Very helpful!
I was taking a graduate level data course and little to none experience with this type of data programming. He created a lesson prior to meeting up with me and broke down each step. He was a great teacher because he let me try things on my own and learn from my mistakes, rather than telling me I should try a different approach. Michael is very passionate about helping students learn, and I would 100% recommend him.

Very patient, knowledgeable and understanding
Michael helped me solve issues with a python programming assignment. He took the time to explain the steps to make the corrections and was very patient with me. He was a great tutor and I look forward to working with him in the future.

This is truly his calling
Michael is fantastic! He is patient, knowledgeable, and truly has a passion for what he does. My son’s confidence has grown in a short period of time. Michael’s style is such that he is teaching kids how to become better students. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

Amazing!
Michael was very patient with me. He gave thorough explanations, ensured that I understood each step and was ready for my next assignment. I left our session feeling like I had the tools needed to definitely achieve high scores in my Python classes! You definitely will not be disappointed.

Knowledgeable, very well organized, effective
My son has taken several sessions with Michael and has had nothing but a positive, productive experience. Michael has taken a very well organized approach to review core material (AP Computer Science) and progressively assigning self study assignments, and overseeing work assigned by school. Extremely valuable, would highly recommend Micheal to anyone looking for help with AP Computer Science.

Knowledgeable
Working with Michael has been very interesting and insightful. Not only does he break down each line of code but he also gives you problems to practice on. I enjoy working with him very much, he is extremely knowledgeable and intuitive. I will continue to work with him do to his understanding and patience!!

Master of material
Michael created an excellent lesson plan and was able to break down abstract computing concepts for me Step by step. While working through problems he diligently and patiently framed the problem/situation so that I was able to arrive at the correct solutions.

Very knowledgeable and helpful.
Michael helped me with the fundamentals of Python. He was very patient and walked me through the lessons. I felt I learned more in one tutoring session with him than in two weeks of class! Very pleased with the results.
Ashley, 3 lessons with Michael
very knowledgeable
He is really helping me to understand the basics of Java and explains anything that doesn't make sense. He makes me think about what it is that I am trying to do, rather than just giving me the answers.
