About Michael

I have three years of tutoring experience ranging from ages 10-60. My most recent student had issues with simple fraction calculations; however, after a span of 20 weeks, she was processing College Algebraic problems. I utilize step by step processes and alternative methods of understanding to help engage the student in grasping the subject, including but not limited to comparing the problems to real world situations.

I am currently a student of St. Petersburg College working on my bachelor's degree in Finance with a 3.4 GPA. I am looking to assist students to understand math ranging from prealgebra to algebra 2 as well as Excel. I enjoy tutoring because it helps me give back to the community that has helped me get to where I am today.

Very patient and knowledgeable with the material that I needed help with.

Michael and I have worked on rationalizations, factoring, square roots, and quadratic equations. I have an increased confidence in my ability to do math problems, since I have started working with Michael. I was failing my math tests prior to meeting with Michael. My grade has improved and I am looking forward to gaining more confidence in the subject that I feel has been holding me back for so l
