About Michael

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.

Intelligent, kind, and explains well so you'll be able to understand! — 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.
