Bio

I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in accounting, and I received my master's degree in accounting from Southern University in 1995. I have tutored children in elementary mathematics, ELA and Algebra 1 for over 25 years. I also worked as a substitute teacher for the parishes of St. Landry and East Baton Rouge. Currently, I am an auditor with the La. Dept. of Insurance, where I have employed there for 16 years.

I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in accounting, and I received my master's degree in accounting from Southern University in 1995. I have tutored children in elementary mathematics, ELA and Algebra 1 for over 25 years. I also worked as a substitute teacher for the parishes of St. Landry and East Baton Rouge. Currently, I am an auditor with the La. Dept. of Insurance, where I have employed there for 16 years.

I was instrumental in organizing the Leap Partnership, which is coalition of educators, parents, and concerned citizens, whose sole purpose is to prepare 4th and 8th graders for the Leap Test. This organization was founded in Lafayette, La. in 2004, and there has been over 150 students who have participated in the program. In addition, I have coached youth soccer for the last seven years.

I am very patient, and I make sure the student thoroughly understands a topic before moving on. I motivate the student to succeed and teach good study skills and test-taking skills. Normally, I use the student's textbooks and classroom materials during our lessons. Students do best when they are encouraged and receive positive feedback.

The following is a list of subjects I tutor: Elementary Mathematics, Elementary Algebra, Accounting, and Soccer.

I have been tutoring elementary math for over 20 years. I have worked as substitute teacher in St. Landry and East Baton Rouge parishes. In addition, since 2004, I have worked as a volunteer tutoring 4th graders and 8th graders in math for the leap test. This volunteer program, the Leap Partnership, was a program which I founded to prepare students in Lafayette Parish to prepare for the leap test. Furthermore, I know that children respond to positive feedback and high expectations. So, I offer these intangibles, and through my experience the students that I have tutored have excelled.

I have over 20 years of tutoring experience. Over the years, I have developed techniques that motivate students to take greater interest in their school work. Essentially, I give them positive feedback, and I let them know that I have high expectations for them. These intangibles have proven to be beneficial because some children may develop low self esteem based on test results, but they may lack the study skills and motivation on how to be resilient even if they struggled with a test. Moreover, my technique also involves getting the student to be more proactive with their school work.

Excellent Tutor

Michael was excellent! I’m a ULL Accounting student & needed help in one of my accounting classes. He is very knowledgeable & was able to put the information in real life situations which made it easier to understand & relatable. He came to the session very well prepared & brought copies of other learning aids to help learn the material. I would definitely recommend!
