About Michael

A teacher for two years with over five years experience tutoring, I have learned how to effectively balance learning rigorous lessons and maintaining enthusiasm in the classroom. I have been a math teacher for 5th and 6th graders at a Boston charter school, but topics I've covered have included algebra 2, precalculus, calculus 1, calculus 2, statistics, physics, and engineering fluids. Having a background in civil engineering, I am also able to relay the practicality and importance of several math lessons learned at the primary and secondary levels.

Although teaching in itself is enjoyable, the ability to work one-on-one with a student and hone in on particular misunderstandings is what I tutor for. Most of my students that I have worked with in the past have saw dramatic increases in their grades; at the college level, one of my students began tutoring sessions with me at a 54% and ended the semester with a 76%; at the middle school level, a particular year saw my students' grades jump an average of 10.7% in the 2-month span between April and June. Several of my favorite parts of tutoring are studying for tests and summarizing a unit: among my favorite games to play with students is math jeopardy and math basketball.

Elementary Math, Algebra 1, Geometry, Physics

I have coached basketball at the middle school level for a year. In addition, I have played basketball for the majority of my life and have learned how to pass my overall knowledge of the game to the younger generation.

Learning may be difficult, but difficult does not mean boring. I will make sure that you grow a curiosity for the topics that we cover.

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.

Elementary Math

I taught elementary math for two years at the 5th and 6th grade levels. I also have been a tutor for students learning conceptually what multiplication is, as well as in solidifying multiplication times tables.

Geometry

I developed curriculum and lesson plans for high school level geometry classes that were taught to students with varying background knowledge. I also have taught students why certain formulas work in calculating area, surface area, and volume.

Prealgebra

I taught prealgebra for one year at the 6th grade level. I was also part of creating lesson plans for struggling students in helping them understand equivalent expressions, solving equations, and fraction division.
