About Michael


Bio

Hello, World!

I am Mike - a full-stack developer and web designer that has been an active developer for over 4 years and a daily user for more than a decade. I have been a tutor here on Wyzant for over a year, previously focusing on static front-end and server technologies using MySQL, PHP, JS, HTML and CSS.

Hello, World!

I am Mike - a full-stack developer and web designer that has been an active developer for over 4 years and a daily user for more than a decade. I have been a tutor here on Wyzant for over a year, previously focusing on static front-end and server technologies using MySQL, PHP, JS, HTML and CSS.

I recently took a short break from Wyzant to focus on learning and practicing new methods using modern technology to create client-side applications and web-apps using advanced frameworks and libraries such as React, static generation using Next, as well as moving from PHP and MySQL to cloud-based hosting and deployment with GitHub, Vercel, Netlify and Heroku. Now I am back again to share what I have learned!

I can relate to getting stuck on an issue and falling behind on my schedule, especially with the fast-paced classes and courses that don't always cover topics that are most likely new to many developers. I would be happy to walk through your project with you, determine what can be improved or where the problems are and help you to explore new methods and practice them. There are also many other resources I can recommend that can help you practice and improve in your free time. The massive online community has helped me in countless ways and I hope to pass on all that I have learned, as well as the fun I had along the way!

Online content and viewership has increased drastically over the past decade, and web development has become a necessary component of academic certificates and degrees to serve today and tomorrow's professional and personal needs.
Because of my thorough understanding of web design and the related languages and programs, I can easily explain processes, work along with you on your project and understand issues with your code structure or any difficulties you may be having. I can help you successfully reach your goals by increasing your level of skills and knowledge - and therefore more confidence in your code.

Contact me if you have any questions or need some help!

CSS

Years of experience using HTML / CSS and extensive understanding of its functions allow for the creation of fluid and functional templates, websites and interfaces. Through years of programming experience i have developed methods that are simple, well tested and reliable. The use of GPU accelerated rendering ensures not only higher, but also more consistent frame rates and response times of media and animated objects. Media queries and CSS grids maintain function and appearance of web applications across the broad range of computer systems and mobile devices.
HTML

HTML

I have been a front-end developer for almost five years with a focus on static sites using HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. Many of my early projects focused on these core skills and have improved over time. Over the past year, I have changed my focus to server and client-side rendered applications using Javascript and Javascript frameworks and libraries like React and Next.js as well as modern code management and deployment methods. As an active developer, I have learned a lot from the community like new tools and methods to improve my workflow and code more efficiently and effectively.

Excellent Tutor

The best tutor! Michael is patient and understanding. I am a beginner at Computer Science, and he breaks down the process so I can easily comprehend the steps. He is a talented, skilled programmer, I only use Michael for help with my Computer Science course!

Ilana, 2 lessons with Michael

Extremely knowledgeable

Michael is very strong in his core concepts and he makes learning enjoyable and easy. If we encounter an issue during our tutoring, he will make sure to find the answers and get it fixed. Always on time and creates value for the time we are in the session. For a beginner like me (in HTML, CSS, javaScript), he was very patient because I would have questions about the same topic more than once and he would answer them with as enthusiasm and patience like he would, for the first time. I highly recommend Michael and I will approach him for any future projects.

Sara, 3 lessons with Michael

Highly Recommend

Showed me some css concepts and guided me through some css for my website. It was time well spent, answered my questions, learned a lot. I highly recommend him.

Ali, 1 lesson with Michael

Very helpful and patient!

Michael is an awesome tutor who really takes the time to explain difficult concepts in a way that is easy to understand. Before I met Michael I really struggled with different aspects of CSS, specifically with flex box and box model. This really hindered my progress in CSS since it’s difficult to style a site without an understanding of the two concepts. After my first lesson with Michael, I began to really grasp the different properties of flex box and the box model for the first time! Within the week I scheduled a few more lessons with Michael to really delve into other CSS areas I really wanted to improve. As a result, my CSS skills and website projects have improved tremendously, all within a week! Highly recommended!
