About Michael


Bio

I am a working 32 year old Biomedical Researcher in the Boston area. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College, and earned a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Now I'm in Boston pursuing a career in academic research, and hoping to help some kids learn to enjoy their classes again.

I've been teaching formally and informally for half my life. In high school, I helped a straight D student find out what it felt like to ace his first...

I am a working 32 year old Biomedical Researcher in the Boston area. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College, and earned a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Now I'm in Boston pursuing a career in academic research, and hoping to help some kids learn to enjoy their classes again.

I've been teaching formally and informally for half my life. In high school, I helped a straight D student find out what it felt like to ace his first Algebra test (He ended with a B+ by the end of the semester). In my day job, I help pre-meds and graduate students understand Molecular and Cell Biology and learn the problem solving skills needed to be a career scientist.

My approach is to set aside (temporarily) the list of memorized facts and tap into the important concepts behind the lesson. That's the framework that will force all the other ideas to line up and make the next lesson easier to build on. This approach provides a feeling control over the subject and reduces anxieties around tests. I've found this to be true in subjects from math and science to history and grammar. It takes a bit of work, but there isn't anything more satisfying than seeing that moment when it finally clicks for a student.

It is a bit of a cliché, but every student has different needs. I'm a patient and laid back tutor with a bit of a goofy side. I may be prone to the occasional celebratory dance, but I'll make sure the student leaves feeling a little better about their classes, and a little more in control of their grades.

Please contact me if you're interested in setting up a time to meet. I'm fairly flexible on time, but my travel is limited by MBTA service.
