About Michael

As someone who recently went through high school and the standardized test-taking process, I can provide comprehensive instruction and relevant advice. I have fresh experiences in a high schooler's shoes, which helps me understand and offer the most effective preparation and tips. I am a current Harvard University undergraduate who will be majoring in Applied Mathematics.

Often times math and science material is presented in a confusing and complicated manner, and I am here to offer easy and simple ways of approaching problems. Because each student learns in a different way, I am able to pinpoint strengths areas of weakness to help students become more confident in their skills.

History is also often seen as a tedious, fact-memorizing ordeal. Instead, I approach teaching U.S. history with a bigger emphasis on broad themes and the "story" of America, which I find greatly helps students retain the information better and enjoy the learning process much more.

I have prepared for and taken many standardized tests. In math, I scored an 800 on the SAT I math section and an 800 on the SAT Subject Test Math II section. In science, I scored an 800 on the SAT Subject Test in Physics and an 800 on the SAT Subject Test in Chemistry. In history, I scored an 800 on the SAT Subject Test in U.S. History. I have received the highest score of 5 on the following AP exams: Calculus BC, Statistics, Physics C: Mechanics, Physics C: E&M, Physics 1, Physics 2, Chemistry, Biology, and U.S. History.

I look forward to getting the opportunity to learn more about 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.
