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.

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.

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.

Thank you
I appreciate your help! I enjoy learning in a step-wise fashion. I learn in steps and my tutor finds ways to tutor in that way. Python can seem easy but it is just as hard to learn and apply the concepts.

Great presenter of information
Before you walk you must crawl. Michael understands that concept and exhibited that in our first session. He started with the basics and wanted me to understand and conceptualize the thought that goes into programming. He used examples and analogies to help me grasp things clearer. He was easy to talk to and a pleasure to work with. I am excited for my journey as a programmer and I believe the possibilities for me are endless.

Unprofessional
We were scheduled for 2 hr. lessons with Michael.In our 1st lesson, Michael included the time spent on introductions and his prior experiences with other students in our lesson time. In our 2nd lesson, he billed additional time without actually teaching for that duration. When I mentioned the additional charge, he wanted to quit teaching us.
Usha, 2 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:I withdrew as their tutor due to the mother's extreme demands on my time, well beyond the lesson time. As well as a generally negative attitude towards me.
Knowledgeable, calm, Patient
He was able to help me with what i needed and was patient enough to go through everything step by step when i needed extra clarification. he also gave me tips on how i could work out problems on my own.

Mike has great simple explanations for programming concepts that my son can easily understand. I also enjoy them as well.
