About Michael

15+ years of tutoring at all levels has given me the experience to help you achieve your academic goals. Whether you feel that you are struggling academically or just want to maximize your potential, I can help you work through any issue which keep you from being your best. We work together to identify the root cause of your problems, and work from there.

I appreciate that academic struggles are some of the most difficult obstacles to overcome, and helping students gives some of the greatest satisfaction. Whether it's going from a fail to a pass or getting that A, I love knowing that I helped someone be at their best.

We get through the difficulties by breaking it down from a huge mess into small digestible bits. We then tie it together with why the topic is important, adding real life examples to bring the subject down to Earth.

At the same time, I provide the skills to help you optimize your study time around YOUR learning and lifestyle. I want to give you the tools and skills to succeed in all your endeavors, not just one

Contact me for a first appointment, and we can start working together to get you on track to help you succeed.

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 1

15+ years of tutoring in all levels and topics

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra (1, 2, and AP) at high school and college levels for over 15 years, starting while in college and continuing while working as a research scientist.

Biochemistry

15 years of chemistry tutoring at all levels.

10 years as a research biochemist

Biology

I have tutored high school and college biology for 15 years, as well as working in biotechnology for over 10 years.

Chemistry

With 15 years of chemistry tutoring at the high school and college levels, I have learned the most effective and efficient methods for presenting a difficult subject. Each student's approach is individualized around each student's strengths and weaknesses, with the goal of teaching them to be active learners.

In addition, my 10 years of working as an industrial biochemist gives me a broad background of examples and experiments which turn chemistry from facts to be memorized to active, interesting concepts.

MCAT

I'm a physician who scored in the MCAT 97th percentile who is transitioning careers, so I can offer you the insight and experience that can only come from being on the other end of the MCAT and medical school application process, combined with over 15 years of tutoring experience. We'll develop an individualized test prep plan based around your strengths and weaknesses, while passing on the techniques which helped me and others succeed.

Great Chemistry tutor!

Mike has been a tremendous help to my son in understanding chemistry! There has been a big improvement in his grades. As a parent, I really appreciate how flexible Mike has been in giving my son last minute tutoring help, both online and in person. Mike truly seems to care about helping my son do well in chemistry.
