My strength as a teacher is explaining tough concepts in everyday language. I like to use visuals, and find they help quite a bit. I am much more 'applied' than 'theoretical'.
I have taught at the Community College level in Florida, and taught undergraduate courses at a 4 year University while in Graduate School. I have also taught several professional review courses in the actuarial and insurance fields.
Please note- I only tutor on weekends, and only in Wellesley. My strength as a teacher is explaining tough concepts in everyday language. I like to use visuals, and find they help quite a bit. I am much more 'applied' than 'theoretical'.

I had the pleasure of working with Michael S. as my tutor for my graduate statistics course. My time was very limited but his was not. He was always available by email and in person. His love of stats and knowledge of the subject matter eased my frustrations. He explained the material so well that I understood and remembered it. He respected my intelligence and worked patiently and kindly through my challenges of the tougher subject matter. I highly recommend Michael S.
Michael was very helpful and patient. I was struggling with stats but Michael's teaching method made it very easy for me to understand the material. He explains the material by using step by step instructions, which is exactly what I needed. I passed the course with a final grade of "B." I would recommend this tutor to anyone. Michael is a great teacher.
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.
Michael S. passed a background check on 9/9/11. The check was ordered by Michael through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Michael, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
