About Michael

Hi, my name is Mike. I'm a Ph.D. student in Political Science at Purdue University. I specialize in public opinion and political participation. I'm right now about ready to start my dissertation about political participation and Internet access. My hobbies include being an avid disc golfer, and I'm also a huge fan of professional baseball and hockey.

I've been tutoring since I've been in college, and found early on that teaching and learning are my passions. I'm a seasoned tutor who's been mostly tutoring math the past few years. I've taken on everything from counting to triple integrals! I'm also versed in U.S. History and government due to my research interests and degrees. I'm well rounded, and have a lot of experience teaching and working with a variety of different topics and at different levels.

I've been tutoring math for over 5 years, at all levels. Students I have worked with have gone from nearly failing classes to high marks.

I work with statistics and other math daily and often have requests from friends of friends to work with me.

I'm a political scientist who works on mostly American politics. This requires me to be very versed and knowledgeable on topics in American History. I'm also an award-winning instructor in American government and politics.

If you're interested in working with me, just get in contact with me! I'd be more than happy to schedule a time to work with you!

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.

Algebra 2

I've been tutoring math for 5-6 years. I've been tutoring everything from counting through multi-dimensional calculus.

Calculus

I'm a PhD student in Political Science with a lot of experience with math tutoring over the past 5-6 years. I've tutored everything from counting to multiple integration.

Political Science

I have a Master's in Political Science from Purdue University. I teach an introduction to American Government and Politic class as I am working on my Ph.D. in this area. I've been teaching this class for the past two years at Purdue University.

Precalculus

I've been tutoring calculus and other math topics regularly for the past 6 or so years.

STATA

As a part of my Political Science PhD experience, I have been using STATA to run all of my statistics. I have done work in it for several conference papers that I have written. I also know how to read and understand the printouts that the program gives you. I use the program at least two to three days a week, sometimes more, depending on the projects I'm working on.
