About Michael

Hello out there! I am a supportive, personable, experienced Math educator with more than 30 years of experience working with all levels of Math students - from children to adults. I have worked with students in elementary, middle school, junior high school, high school and college/university. I have helped family and friends with their Math struggles for as long as I can remember!

I was an Honor Student in High School, and later earned my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education at Brooklyn College (City University of New York). From there I went on to work as a High School Mathematics Teacher while earning my Masters Degree in Mathematics Education (with High Honors.) I even worked several years developing/supporting beginning teachers with how to teach Mathematics (and other subjects)! In addition, I also have several years of experience teaching students at the college level. Most recently, I have also helped numerous elementary school students with their Math homework while working for an after-school program which was run in the Broward County Libraries.

My teaching style has been described as "fun, engaging, and supportive." I am here to make YOU feel more relaxed and confident with the Math subjects that you face.

Thank you for reading this little introduction!
