About Michael

My name is Michael, and I have taught math in both public and private school.

After graduating from University of Colorado, I worked as a computer programmer, before becoming a math teacher.

I have taught over 700 students, and I have learned how to explain math concepts in a way that you’ll understand. I know which concepts are easy and which ones will give you trouble. I’ll teach you how to avoid the common mistakes that so many students make.

You will learn math. I guarantee it. I will teach it to you.

A lot of students don't like math. It's normal for people to dislike and resent things they're having trouble figuring out. I don't try to make people feel better about math. Instead, I believe the best way to make a student feel better is to show the student how to solve the problems. Once students see they're capable of doing math, that's when they feel better about it.

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.

Logic

In college, I completed a course in Logic Circuits. I was required to build circuits using AND, OR, NAND, and NOR gates. In addition, as a math teacher, I have taught statement logic, inverse, converse, contrapositive, etc.

Michael helped with College Algebra and explained in a very relatable way. Never was very good at math but with Michael's help, felling more confident. Highly recommend him!
