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...

A great help!
Michael was a great help in the nick of time! Our daughter had a test the week that Michael helped her. She wasn’t prepared for the test and Michael helped to break down the concepts so she was able to set up and solve the calculus problems. We are grateful for his help and patience in teaching the calculus related rates to our daughter. We will be using him again!

Genius.
Mike tutored for me for Calculus II and I passed with an A. Every question I asked him, he knew the history and proofs of the problem. Now I'm beyond Calculus II and I'm in topics Mike hasn't dabbled with in a long time like discrete mathematics. For example: I'm taking Linear Algebra now and Mike hasn't practiced in a long time. Mike reminded himself all the topics the day before and helped me master the material. He's passionate about math and his passion made him brilliant.

Michael on the spot
I woke up knowing my son was having trouble with his algebra the previous night, and the way they're teaching math today is like a foreign language to me. I got up and checked around and found Michael available in like 15 minutes at 6 am Pacific time. He went over the assignment with my son, and it was like light bulbs flickering for the next hour out of my son's brain. He had a great morning, because he felt like he finally understood all of the material he was trying to figure out the previous night. Thanks, Michael!

My son is going back
Michael is working with my son on SAT math prep as well as Algebra II and Trig. He has only had one session so far, but the big win is that he is going back, willingly. A first for my son.

Great, patient, and excellent tutor!
I️ been to Michael twice and both times he has been very patient when explaining any math problems. Michael explains problems step by step and if I️ am not clear on something he would review again. Math is very challenging to me but I️ have a better understanding after each session with Michael. I️ would definitely recommend him to anyone having challenges in math and need one on one help.

Great communicator!!
Dylan had a late session with Michael that was scheduled at the last minute. She was having trouble with multiplying and dividing polynomials. Michael explained how to solve the problems and taught her how to complete the tasks. We look forward to working with Michael again.

Excellent tutor!
My son is a bit rusty as he took Pre-Calculus a couple of years ago and now taking Calculus. He says he has learned more from Michael than from his teacher or others in just a few hours of tutoring. Thanks, Michael!

Great
Michael is quick to delve into the math and relates very well to my son. I'm very pleased with his service. He is always available on short notice, and that is nice for a teenager that has no thought for the lives of other people, especially someone that is two time zones away!

Organized, interesting and knowledgeable tutor
Michael was always prepared, and would easily explain any math question and run through it step by step until I fully understood it. Also used a whiteboard on online sessions which was very useful
