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.
Prior to becoming a teacher/tutor, I had...

Best GMAT Quant Tutor!
I studied with Michael for a little over three months on a weekly or biweekly cadence and saw my quant score increase 15 points, allowing my total GMAT score to reach a 700+. This was AFTER having already taken a prep course where I saw no improvement. My success on the GMAT would absolutely not have been possible without Michael. He is patient, understanding and very responsive. Michael can dissect any topic you could possibly need to know for the quant section. He knows how to both simplify the question and show you how to be strategic, allowing you to solve in under two minutes. If you're looking for a tutor that will help you reach that goal score, look no further!

Knowledgeable patient kind
I love how patient MR Michael is. I love how he explains and break something I don’t know before we move on to the next step. Today we I learned about positives and negative in multiple step equations and combining like terms

my son said he did a great job
He has been instrumental during covid of keeping my son up to par with his geometry class and also prepping him for the SAT - this will be an ongoing instruction for the remainder of the year

Patient, Kind, and Knowledgeable
Aided me in finding instrumental and easy methods to reduce time spend on calculations. Flexible hours to ensure we met. And made accommodations for me when my Wzyant was not working by switching to Zoom

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.

Great teacher, very friendly
We studied algebra 2. Last year we worked on geometry. He makes difficult concepts seem easy. He’s also very friendly and easy to work with. I will recommend him to all my friends.
