College and High School Math for Classes and Test Prep
From 2006 to 2010, I had taught mathematics, and since 2010 have been a full-time private tutor. I work with students on topics from Prealgebra to Calculus, whether specifically for a class, or as part of test preparation for an entrance exam. My degree is a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Wayne State University's College of Science, where I did a combined curriculum with the University's College of Education for my teacher certification.

Wonderful tutor for GMAT math section
I came to Michael 6 weeks before my GMAT test date when I realized I couldn't study on my own and get the score I wanted. Michael was flexible with scheduling and we were able to find time to meet 3x weekly. My score went up from 40-something percentile to almost 70th percentile, all thanks to Michael's great tutelage! I was particularly impressed by Michael's preparedness. He reviewed questions I sent over before each session, so we were always able to dive right into the optimal solution. While we always worked on solving the problem at hand, Michael made sure to also address all the underlying math with examples and reinforcement. This helped tremendously and was a huge value add over e.g. a test prep book. Overall would highly recommend Michael as a GMAT math tutor!

Grateful for Michael's tutoring services
Michael has been tutoring my 10th grade son since last year, on a weekly basis to supplement what he has been learning in Algebra 2 and now in his Geometry classes. Given the recent pandemic, the tutoring sessions have been recently facilitated through Skype and have found them to be as effective. Michael is helpful, knowledgeable, and a patient teacher with a great rapport. I look forward to my son working with Michael in the upcoming school years. I am extremely grateful to be introduced to Michael and have complete trust knowing that Michael has and will continue to help my son.

Excellent! Another A!
Excellent teacher, patient, understanding and extremely helpful. Willing to accommodate last minute needs. Has built confidence and enforced knowledge retention. Finds ways apply problem solving skills. Went from struggling and misunderstanding and to achieving another A onHonors level test. My son asks for extra study sessions with Michael so he can drill the skills and point out the careless errors he makes so he know what to do when it comes to exam time.

Micheal tutored both my sons for Algebra 1 and Geometry. His knowledge on the subject is very good and surely is a good tutor. He knew to teach based on the child's requirement. My kids were very comfortable with him. I would surely reach out to him for tutoring on need basis in the future.
