I've been tutoring students at all levels and abilities for over 10 years and pride myself on excellent results while still having fun and making every tutoring session enjoyable. I am also a high school and middle school math teacher.

Tutoring is all about you, the student. Let's work together to find the best methods for you to understand and absorb the material. One of the great parts of tutoring is that we can spend time on those areas that need special attention without the pressure of a classroom setting. If one problem takes 30 minutes, that's fine! The time we spend together will help you succeed in class and turn frustration into success.

We've all experienced that "aha moment" when everything clicks. I look forward to lots of those moments as we work together.

Patient and Generous Tutor

Michael was very kind and helpful. He created a collaborative environment where he allowed me to try problems on my own and would help guide me when I wasn't sure what to do next.

Juliana, 1 lesson with Michael

Michael was very knowledgable about the topic

Michael taught us pre-calculus. He had a good way of explaining the concepts and it helped that he had taught the subject before. We hope to call on his help in the future as well. Thank you

Sudha, 1 lesson with Michael

Patient Tutor

Michael was extremely helpful, guiding me through exercises guaranteed to help master Proportions and Similarities. I have been having some difficulties with ratios and his patience and mastery of the subject content was invaluable.

Brenda, 1 lesson with Michael

Very thorough and patient

Michael does an excellent job with my daughter. She's doing much better at Math and is becoming a far more confident math student. Mike is patient, makes sure my daughter really understands the content and methods she's being taught.

Peter, 21 lessons with Michael

Wonderful teacher

Michael worked with my son to help him catch up in pre calc and my son walked away talking about what a good teacher he is. So happy to have found hlm. Looking forward to working with him more.

Sue, 20 lessons with Michael

Very helpful and will be an ongoing resource

In one session with Mike my daughter felt prepared for her Algebra 2 final despite having missed a lot of school for health reasons.

Michele, 8 lessons with Michael

Very knowledgeable and patient

Micheal was very helpful and patient with my daughter. Her grades have improved tremendously since she began working with him.

Breanna, 20 lessons with Michael

Outstanding Tutor

Michael was able to take the foundation of math that I already knew and with a dynamic and efficient approach, taught me several ways how to solve complex math problems. Michael's professional tutoring strategies allowed me to gain confidence and a level of proficiency in an area in which I was not confident or proficient. I strongly recommend Michael to any child, student, or adult looking to conquer weak academic areas.

Tim, 6 lessons with Michael
