About Michael

My name is Michael and I am college student at Morehouse College majoring in Applied Physics and Mathematics. I have extensive tutoring experience working with a local non profit whose mission is to provide resources and academic enrichment to underprivileged youth. During my tenure there I revamped the mathematics tutoring curriculum so that learning would be more organic and intuitive rather than strictly based on memorization of equations and formulas. The interesting thing I found working both one on one with students and in small groups was that most students who struggle academically had a mental block with the material and often felt they would never be proficient in the subject. In my tutoring capacity one of my objectives is to empower students to take control of their intellectual journey and develop confidence to tackle difficult subject areas. When tutoring I don't just teach students how to arrive at the right answer but rather to have an intuitive understanding of the process of learning. One of my techniques is to get the students to relate with the material by focusing on real world applications and tailoring lesson plans to student needs and interests. In addition I make myself available to answer questions outside of sessions so that dedicated students have a strong support system.
Tutoring is important to me as practical real world experience as I plan to pursue doctoral studies in Environmental Engineering and Applied Mathematics and ultimately become a Patent Attorney. One of my career goals is to add to the current stock of knowledge in academia and I hope throughout my education I am able to discover some new scientific or mathematical process. I wish to impart this zeal for intellectual pursuits to my students so that they they hopefully feel empowered to be innovators in their chosen fields.

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.

Algebra 1

I have more than 3 years of tutoring experience and have helped students who were failing classes achieve a B+ average. I have only three classes left in my mathematics major so I have extensive knowledge of the major fields and branches of mathematics. In addition I've developed my own mathematics tutorial program in my capacity as program coordinator for a local non profit and understand the common challenges students face in furthering their mathematics education.

Algebra 2

As a mathematics major I have completed the full degree requirements up to Advanced Calculus Proofs and Abstract Algebra so I am well versed in all areas of mathematics. I have over 6 years of tutoring experience and I know how to reach students at their level and bring out their full potential.

SAT Math

I personally scored a 750 on all sections of the SAT for a combined score of 2250. I have more than 3 years of tutoring experience and have helped students achieve a 650+ on the SAT Math section. I have only three classes left in my mathematics major so I have extensive knowledge of the major fields and branches of mathematics.

Spanish

I have studied abroad in Mexico and gained extensive knowledge of the language since both my host parents did not speak english! I am familiar with the challenges students face learning foreign languages and strive to make language learning as simple and painless as possible.
