About Michael

Working at a pace that is cognitively and developmentally appropriate for the student, finding the particular language that works best for them, and assuring that their fundamentals are intact as well as pushing the bar forward and challenging them whenever possible; these are the teaching principles that guide my tutoring.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Saxophone Performance from Buena Vista University located in Storm Lake, Iowa, and I graduated with a minor in mathematics. For the past five years, I have been tutoring students from kindergarten to college age at a local learning center.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

I was previously employed with an accredited learning center that provided instructional one-on-one time with ADD/ADHD students. This provided essential experience in dealing with focus, attention, and concentration issues.

Common Core

I worked with an accredited learning center required me to discuss, in detail, the changes that the Common Core Standards made and how it related to new curriculum being seen in area schools. I have read the entire Common Core Standards of Math and am fluent with their language and philosophy.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Saxophone Performance from Buena Vista University. I also have two years of experience teaching beginner and intermediate saxophone students.

Special Needs

My previous employment was with an accredited learning center provided special memberships for children with hearing problems, eyesight difficulties, and autism.

Great Tutor!

Michael helped me understand my online math homework. He told me how to do it. He showed me how to do it. Then he help me do it. Doing quadratic equations is always a blast with Micheal.
