“**Best Tutor**”

Hello, I am a Mathematics and Physics graduate from the University of South Florida with over 10 years of certified tutoring experience in both subjects. I have tutored as an employee at the University of South Florida and

*Sessions lasting 2 hours or more will be charged at a reduced rate of $40 per hour.
Group tutoring will also be charged a reduced rate which depends on the number of students.*

Background Check:

Michael worked with my son last night for the first time on his Physics questions and my son said he was the best tutor he's ever had. Big thumbs up!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Algebra is, quite frankly, learning how to solve for a variable by moving everything to one side of the equal sign and leaving the variable you solve for on the other side. It is not as difficult as it may seem, unfortunately many teachers fail to explain this simple fact. I have much experience with algebra and am happy to help with this fundamental math.

Algebra 2 is basically an extension of Algebra 1 obviously. It is also not as difficult as it may seem, it just takes someone to help students see that it is not so abstract.

Calculus is the math of changing rates (e.g. motion) and is the backbone of physics. I have developed a profound understanding of calculus as a physicist and also as a tutor of mathematics for engineers at USF.

I took differential equations at Hillsborough Community College and earned an "A". I tutored this subject for many students as a certified tutor at the University of South Florida for over four years. I have also had much experience with the subject as a physics major and graduate of USF.

Geometry is the fundamental aspect of most math. Einstein showed that gravity is actually a geometrical construct, meaning that it is the result of the geometrical interaction of space-time and matter. Often difficult mathematical subjects can be more easily understood using geometry.

Physics is my passion, my raison d'etre so to speak. Through physics many beautiful aspects of the natural world can be understood, but often educators fail to bridge this for students because they use concepts that are far too abstract, or simply because they don't know the subject matter any better than they have to in order to teach it in a very limited fashion. Only one third of high school teachers actually have a degree in physics. At any rate I will be more than happy to help with this fascinating subject, the basis of all our scientific knowledge. All other sciences are built from the foundation of physics.

I have tutored many students on prealgebra in an effort to get them prepared for the next step in mathematics. I once was intimidated by mathematics but was fortunate to have an awesome instructor to help me see that it is not only not that difficult but can actually be fun...believe it or not.

I tutored students in precalculus privately, online, and also as staff at USF. I tutored students for the SAT/ACT exam many times.

I have assisted many students with preparation for the SAT exam and feel extremely confident in my ability to help them pass this exam with a very high score in mathematics.

Trigonometry is the mathematics of angles and shows up all throughout later classes in mathematics (much like algebra). Therefore confidence in this math is important and I am happy to help students attain this goal.
