About Michael

Hello my name is Michael and I just recently received my undergraduate degree in Biophysics (honors) from the George Washington University in Washington DC. I also played golf at a Division I level for four years and love to participate in numerous sports. I believe playing golf gave me the opportunity to interact and communicate with a lot of different people and also gave me the opportunity to tutor other athletes in the athletic department. I tutored athletes and non-athletes for three years in a variety of fields and believe that I have been very effective in communicating to a range of different people and personalities. I also was actively involved in research for two years where I was focusing on a rapid developing application of biophysics in the field of optics and biosensing. I have a very diverse background and feel like I am very approachable and friendly. I enjoy playing piano which I have done for 18 years now and believe that I can help any student achieve what the want academically.

Math was my favorite subject before I went to college. I received a perfect score on the math section of the ACT(36) and the SAT subject tests. I received the award in my high school for top math student and have tutored people in math since my freshmen year in high school. In college I have continued taking many math classes ( Calculus I,II,III, IV, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations). I spent many hours tutoring students in calculus and algebra and feel like I have really helped them succeed.

My degree in undergraduate was in Biophysics which is essentially a physics degree with classes in biology and chemistry. I am very diverse in this regard and feel like I have an excellent grasp on any physics idea and also being able to apply it to other fields. My main tutoring experience comes in teaching the introductory sequence of physics with calculus. Here I have helped students understand the sometimes challenging concepts that physics can offer.

Feel free to contact me. Even though I am in graduate school I have very flexible hours and can work any evening or anytime on the weekends. I love to talk about anything or if you want to talk about a research area or my experience in physics or getting into graduate school feel free to contact me.
Thank you,
Michael

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.

Golf

I began taking golf lessons at the age of 5 and competing in tournaments when I was 12. I received a full ride to play Division I golf and lettered all four years. Over this time I was able to interact with a lot of different people in many areas of golf. I helped teach younger kids in high school golf, and during college was apart of many mentorships programs to teach. Here I was involved heavily with the SMGA where I was teaching wounded veterans how to play golf.

Piano

I started taking piano lessons weekly when I was 6. Once I started high school I began taking lessons twice a week for 1 hour to train for recitals. I am extensively trained in classical music having taken formal piano lessons for 14 years. I play about 1-2 hours a day, and have taught many people piano privately.
