About Mike

Greetings! You are most likely looking here to find a resource to assist your child, partner, or perhaps even yourself find the key to unlock the mystery of one or more subjects that have you confounded. I have worked with individuals across the country and around the world to help individuals just like you find that one thing that makes the key click for them.

I have been working in the field of education for the past ten years both in the K-12 environment as well as at the collegiate level. Most recently, I have been teaching economics, business, and information technology courses at the College of Southern Maryland.

Additionally, I have been filling in as a substitute teacher in the Saint Mary's County School System and as a home/hospital teacher or students who, for whatever reason, are unable to attend regular classes.

My tutoring philosophy is similar to my teaching philosophy: understand the basics and then move forward at a comfortable pace. Each of my students is an individual with individual needs. My job is to discover how to best meet those needs and provide a level of service designed to exceed those needs.

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.

Business

I currently teach Business and Economics courses at the College of Southern Maryland. The courses include Introduction to Business in a Market Economy, Macroeconomics, Introduction to Management, Business Math, and Customer Service. I previously taught similar courses including Business Applications in Microsoft Office.

Career Development

I held previous positions as Director of Career services at two Proprietary Education Colleges. In these roles as well as an instructor I taught resume writing courses, interview skills, and dress for success seminars. I have also held several job fairs.

I am currently a site coordinator for the Southern Maryland Professionals in Transition job club.

College Counseling

As a former college administrator as well as a college recruiter, I have experience with the hurdles students and their parents face while completing the requisite paperwork to attend higher education institutions. This includes searching for and applying for scholarships, deciding which college is best for the applicant, completing applications, and completing FAFSA applications.

General Computer

I am currently teaching introduction to computers as well as computer operating systems at the College of Southern Maryland. The courses focus on ethics of computer/technology usage, applications, system recovery, registry editing, etc.

Public Speaking

For the past 12 years, I have been teaching or giving presentations before groups. Most recently, I've become the speech coach for a local 4H club.
