I have over 10 years experience as an instructor and tutor in Basic Math, Pre- Algebra and Algebra at both Sinclair Community College and Clark State Community College. Now retired, I have a lifetime of experience as an engineer in the use of math in everyday engineering problems. I have experience as an engineer in the Air Force and and in industry. I am a retired Major. I have used math as well as physics throughout my engineering career. I am proficient in the use of a number of computer applications which I use frequently. I worked for over 10 years as a software test engineer. My approach to tutoring is to first assess a student's strengths and weakness and start from there. I am known for my ability to make math understandable and fun.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Mike is an incredible patient tutor. He is also very detailed and my son is very energetic and excited about Algebra due to Mike's approach. Very patient and will take as much time as student needs and is great with followup and feedback.

Another successful year in math for our son

Mike has been tutoring our son for the second year (both 4th and 5th grade). We just received his 3rd quarter grade card – A in math! We have seen tremendous progress in our son’s math skills and confidence level since as a result of Mike’s work with him. He looks forward to his weekly tutoring sessions as Mike has patience and makes it fun by frequently incorporating my son’s area of interest (like baseball) into the lesson. I can’t say enough how Mike has took a stressful time for our son and family (greatly struggling with math at the beginning of 4th grade) and turned it into a success story (echoed by his teachers).

Great Start!

Mike has done an excellent job working with my daughter on her Math and Science. She is comfortable with him and likes the sessions. I am very happy with his performance and look forward to working with him next year.
