About Michael

I am a mathematics tutor who can help with ACT, SAT, Middle School, High School and early college mathematics courses. I have been tutoring various Mathematics and Science lessons for 7 years now.

My tutoring career began in high school where I helped out fellow students with mathematics, chemistry and physics work. At Vanderbilt University, I helped grade a differential equations class and tutored other students in Calculus classes. This past year, I simultaneously taught Algebra 1 and tutored other students in Calculus and Algebra 2.

I am currently enrolled in the Master's Computer Science program Northwestern University's McCormick School of Engineering.

I prefer tutoring students one-on-one and enjoy relating mathematical history and significance to the topics being taught. I always try to relate mathematical concepts to real world situations in order to give students motivation and purpose to learning mathematics.

Please contact me with any questions you may have! I am generally available to tutor you at a time and place of your convenience.

I look forward to hearing from you and working together with you to achieve academic success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I have achieved a perfect score of 36 on the Math section of the ACT and an overall ACT score of 34. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Education from Vanderbilt University. I can give students both the mathematical and time management skills necessary to perform well on the ACT.

ACT Science

I have achieved a near-perfect score of 35 on the Science section of the ACT and an overall ACT score of 34. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Education from Vanderbilt University. I can give students the time management and interpretation skills necessary to perform well on the ACT.

Algebra 1

I have achieved a perfect score of 36 on the Math section of the ACT and an overall ACT score of 34. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Education from Vanderbilt University. I have taught a year long Algebra 1 course to High School freshmen so I have a very good connection to the subject.

Algebra 2

I have achieved a perfect score of 36 on the Math section of the ACT and an overall ACT score of 34. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Education from Vanderbilt University. I taught sections of Algebra 2 including: solving equations and inequalities, graphing linear functions, solving systems of equations, factoring polynomials and probability.

Geometry

I have achieved a perfect score of 36 on the Math section of the ACT and an overall ACT score of 34. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Education from Vanderbilt University. I have taught and tutored sections of Geometry including: angles, triangle properties, angles in a polygon, similar figures, finding area of a given shape and many more.

Precalculus

I have achieved a perfect score of 36 on the Math section of the ACT and an overall ACT score of 34. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics and Education from Vanderbilt University. I taught a section of Pre-Calculus for a semester during student teaching.

Connected with my son & helped him thru sticking points

We had our first lesson with Michael and he was able to help my son understand some of the concepts he was struggling with and help him see what he needed to do differently. Michael was knowledgeable and easy to work with.
