I want to thank Michael H. from the bottom of my heart. I reached out to him in a desperate situation and he came through as he promised. His skills and patience helped my brother relax and get over his testing fears. After just two sessions my brother's confidence had improved, and he was able to take his test and scored higher than we anticipated. Now he is ready to better his life. I highly recommend Michael as an outstanding tutor.
Our son has some unique issues with learning and Michael is not only doing and trying all sorts of different things to bring out the best in our son, but he is exceeding greatly! Our son got an 83% on the math test! Thanks so much Mr. Mike!
Michael is a excellent instructor, he is patient and very good at what he does. In just 2 lessons my son who's had problems in math for a long time is already showing improvement. Thank you so much!
Micheal is very patient and understands my weak areas. This is a good start for me. I feel relieved knowing that I have Micheal to assist me.
My daughter and I had an Awesome experience with Mr. Michael. Even I was learning new thing just from listening to how he was explaining methods on how to solve math problems. He also made it fun for her to learn. We will be seeing him again. Awesome guy!!
Michael is teaching me the basics to statistics I have struggled with math all my life. I been out of school for many years and decided to go back to school. My math struggles that I had for many years I can feel that they are coming to an end Now that that I have a tutor I feel more confident and Michael makes it so easy to understand
Very patient and also an expert on the subject, focused and was able to help and identified where my son needed help the most, Thus giving my son confidence for an upcoming test, Thank you so Much !
Mike is an excellent Math professor, He is extremely knowledgeable in the area of mathematics. He is very easy to communicate with and my questions were answered. He teaches difficult math in easy-to-follow steps. I'm very glad to have him as my teacher and I'm confident that with Mike, I can succeed in passing my GED.
My son is strong in math but that didn't stop Michael H from going over math with him so now he is even stronger; they also went over reading and comprehension. I can definitely tell that my sons confidence about the taking the test has increased and his anxiety is little to none. I am certain he will do well.
Michael is very knowledgeable math. I very satisfied with him as a tutor. I like his method of teaching math. Michael believes in memorization. Memorization is very important in math. Memorization in a must in becoming a genius in math. My sons will become geniuses with Michael as their math tutor. Thanks, Michael!
Michael is always professional, punctual, patient & relates practical experiences to math. From the moment the session begins, he is relating math to real life, sometimes without you even knowing it. My child loves history, so Michael always finds a way to integrate history to math. If you get the chance to have Michael as your tutor, I would highly recommend him! I personally will not give up my child's spot until he graduates. Michael is a highly decorated veteran in education!
Michael immediately recognized that my child is intelligent. He is an excellent teacher who builds my child's self esteem. My student was so well taught that she was talking about geometry concepts with her little sister as we were preparing a meal together. That's when I knew that my daughter "got it" and the lessons with Michael were paying off. My daughters grades are improving because she understands the concepts. He doesn't just do my daughter's homework for her like some tutors do. He is building a set of skills for my daughter that is preparing her for college. I intend to utilize Michael for the rest of my daughters high school years and even into college. Michael is excellent. Give him a try if he can fit you into his schedule. Hurry because his time slots go fast.
Helping others learn requires great communication skills, and the ability to identify the best way to convey the material in a way that matches the individual needs of the learner. Michael was great at these skills and presented the math in a way no one else I know has. I actually enjoyed working the problems with him and he really made me think. I have never liked math and to be honest I feel it's the only subject I struggle with academically. Michael was patient and worked the problems with me and give me methods to make it easier. I have tried tutors before but most of them really did not know the math and I left many sessions clueless to what I just learned. Michael was very skilled in his knowledge of the subject and forced me to learn the foundations. He was able to identify my mistakes quickly and keep me from deviating and reverting to wrong concepts. Overall I highly recommend him and can't wait to sit in my next session. With my tutors help I will hopefully never worry about math getting in the way of my future. Thank You WyzAnt.
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.

I recently completed COMM 101 Fundamentals Public Speaking at Ivy Tech Community College in East Chicago, IN with an A for a grade. I have several years of experience as a teacher which required effective public speaking for many hundreds of hours. As the manager of a business for several years, both marketing and employee management required effective public speaking. Several years of group tutoring and many years of group training have given me additional experience as a speaker. As the instructor of a personal computing class I gained additional experience as a public speaker.
My experience as a student, tutor, trainer and instructor, along with extensive research into the subject have
enabled me to master study skills. That mastery and experience has given me the capability to teach, or tutor,
active listening, reading comprehension, notetaking, stress management, time management, testing taking, and memorization techniques ( among many others ). I have found that my student's academic performance in general and in specific subjects is greatly improved by my teaching of study skills. Moreover I use those techniques extensively and successfully in my own learning and thus have come to understand the students experience and point of view. That understanding and experiences enables me to continually improve my study skills and my ability to teach them.
For three years I taught H & R BLOCK'S BASIC TAX COURSE. That is a 16 week ( 6 hours per week ) course in which newcomers, with no experience, learn everything necessary to prepare tax returns for H & R BLOCK, the nation’s finest tax preparation service. Many of my students went on to become accomplished tax preparers at H & R BLOCK and other places. I worked as a tax preparer for H & R BLOCK for 5 years during which I prepared thousands of client tax returns of great variety. In addition I taught H & R BLOCK'S Tax-Preparation-System, their unique software system for that purpose. I have interviewed thousands of clients and prepared their federal and state income tax returns. That experience, in addition to many years of teaching and tutoring experience, qualifies me to tutor Tax Preparation.

I also have considerable experience tutoring other similar nursing examinations including NCLEX and HESI. I'm confident that I can help anyone seeking to excel on the TEAS examination. Thanks for your consideration.
