I am a retired chemist with a career in R/D including management. I have a PhD in Polymer Science as an elastomer physical chemist. I am a published chemist and a lecturer at the graduate school level. I am certified to teach science and mathematics in Ohio, was a "preferred substitute teacher" in two school districts in NE Ohio, and have tutored and taught science and mathematics in high school and middle school in Ohio for 9 years and since 2009 in Georgia. In my experience tutoring chemistry, physical science and mathematics, a 2-hour lesson is preferred over a 1-hour lesson to better accomplish understanding of the assignment. I also prefer to know ahead of time the assignment topic so I can review my personal textbooks and bring appropriate background material to the lesson.

The tutoring session normally involves completing problem sets, and the optimum tutoring lesson is a face-to-face meeting where assigned problems are solved, with the objective not only to get the correct answer but to explain the principles employed to enhance understanding of the topic. However, I have found that a telephone or email based lesson can be equally productive. If this is useful, I am willing to conduct sessions this way also.

Knowledgeable and professional

My son really enjoyed his session with Mike after much apprehension and expressed that he learned more from Mike than his own teacher. I certainly plan to continue these tutoring sessions.

Nia, 6 lessons with Mike

Great teacher

Mike has been great and our son is doing much better and is on the right path. Thank you Mike!

Smart Math Tutor for ACT Prep

Over the past sessions with Mike, he has really helped me understand certain math problems (geometry, algebra, etc.) in order to prepare for the ACT. He has also given me a good schedule that I am satisfied with. It is very obvious that he knows what he is doing and he can definitely help you with any problem!

Very Knowledgeable and connects very well with teens

Mike helped my daughter with precalculus. This was her first session with him and we look forward to many more. She felt so confident after her session with Mike that she was helping her friends with their precalculus homework.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Mr. Mike did an excellent job explaining the math concepts my son was having difficulty understanding. He displayed a confidence in his Math abilities that I haven't seen in a while.

Tricia, 8 lessons with Mike

High School & College Chemistry

Mr. Mike tutors my two sons in Chemistry. My youngest is in the 10th grade and my oldest is a junior at Georgia State University. They both said he teaches Chemistry better than their teachers. They get a lot done with him and they understand it.

Very knowledgeable and patient!

He was able to explain angles to my son in a way that was easy for him to understand. He was very prompt. We look forward to working with him again.

Sharease, 4 lessons with Mike

WOW moments

The first session I listened as my daughter was real quiet at first, as Mike explained things about chemistry, the light went on and she became more and more enthusiastic and was getting problems correct with out any coaching. Well worth our money to have Mike turn on her excitement for a subject.

Juli, 1 lesson with Mike

Very satisfied

My daughter took her first lesson with Mr. Mike and she was very impressed. Mike is very knowledgeable and he really knows the subject. She is very happy.
