Great at focusing on the important topics

My son has had three sessions so far and has covered a good amount of material for AP Calculus. Michael has picked out important formulae and has shown him how to use them in calculus problems. He is patient and able to communicate and teach well.

Knowledgeable

My son had a great first session with Michael. He is preparing for AP Calculus in a week and is thrilled with what he learned working with Michael. Having a 17 year old give his tutor a 5 out 5 says a lot. Thank you Michael.

The best math tutor you will find

Mr. M is the best. He has tutored both of my sons in classes from Algebra 1 to Calculus AB. They both love him. He adapts his way of explaining to the way the student learns, which makes all the difference. Meeting with Mr. M can literally make the difference between an F and an A for my son who is in high school now. I feel like it is a gift to have a tutor who he likes and can learn from as well.

Wonderful tutor with a big heart

My special needs son was not doing well in his science class and Michael was able to help my son to get back to his feet. He eventually passed it with more than what we expected. Michael is not like your ordinary tutor. He cares for his student. He makes sure that he can do the job and can help the student before accepting the assignment. I have dealt with several tutors and a lot of them are selfish and self-centered and would ask for more tutor time than what they really need. Michael is different. He only will use the session time when his student needs it and benefits from it. I left it totally to Michael to take charge and he did. I highly recommend Michael for his outstanding character, discipline and his compassion for the success of his students.

Straight to the point and very goal oriented

My son felt that first 2 sessions with Michael were very productive and helpful. He was able to identify the issue and address it right away.

Great tutor; patient and reliable.

Michael is a very responsive, flexible and reliable tutor. He is patient and thorough when working with his students. Michael tutored my 8th grade son in prepapration for his high school math placement test. Although my son began his sessions with Michael just a couple of weeks before the placement test, Michael taught him enough Algebra 1 (which my son had not, for the most part, learned yet in his 8th grade math class) to help him place in the more advanced/Algebra II class for his freshmen year in high school. My son enjoyed working with Michael and will work with Michael again if/when he needs extra help keeping up with any of his advanced math classes in high school.

Wonderful experience.

Before contacting Mr. Michael, we were desperate: our daughter was failing AP Calculus and everyday became a struggle for her in and out of the classroom. Endlessly searching the internet, we finally found Mr. M and begun classes at our accommodation. We immediately saw progress from just a couple hours of tutoring a week in her grades, her ability to actually complete her homework, and progress reports he would send us after each session. Mr. M spends the time not only showing her how to solve the difficult problem at hand, but spent the time until she fully understood the topic. He also became in sync with the concepts taught at school so the tutoring wouldn't confuse our daughter. Michael M. was a great tutor and if my daughter’s increase of 4 letter grades isn't proof, I don’t know what is. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Certainly highly recommended.
