All levels of undergraduate mathematics and statistics
I have a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota with a major in statistics and a minor in mathematics.
I am more interested in helping students who want to understand than those who want to compete for test scores and grades.
I have taught mathematics and statistics at nine universities in four states, ranging from M.I.T. (as a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics with a temporary appointment) to two open-admissions universities and including the University of Minnesota as an adjunct some years...

Great tutor
Michael really helped me understand the proofs for my probability and statistics class. Also I really like how he used LaTeX so all of the notation was easy to read and understand. I definitely feel more well prepared and less stressed!

Very helpful
Michael is hellbent on making sure concepts are understood which is exactly what I was looking for. Hope to work with you again!

Impromptu session
I needed some help with some statistic problems and we did an online session together. It was exactly the boost I needed to finish my assignment. Michael gave me room to figure things out and make mistakes along the way. Great session!

Knowledgable tutor with a good ability to explain complex material
Michael helped me to better understand variable transforms for random vectors, and associated multi-variate probability density functions. He was able to adjust the discussion as necessary, and drill down on the material to address my specific questions. Patient and helpful.

Knowledgeable tutor
I was really worried about finding a tutor with the right experience for an advanced abstract algebra class. Michael is very knowledgeable about the subject. He explains things in different ways to help understand the material better. He gives insight into how to tackle difficult problems. He has made difficult topics much easier to grasp.

Knowledgeable and very helpful!
Michael knew precisely the kind of help I needed. He showed immense knowledge taking the lesson just 30 minutes in advance and being able to solve the problems I had.
Anish, 3 lessons with Michael
Mathematician with broad knowledge of his craft
Working with Michael has helped me excel in my math courses, particularly the more theoretical ones, such as abstract algebra. He has an understanding of many topics that other tutors have never learned or haven't touched on in a long time. I look forward to continuing my tutoring sessions with Michael for the next year as we pivot to probability theory and statistics.

Great Statistics tutor
He helped me better understand topics covered on my next test. He was Patient and worked threw the sample problems step by step with me. Great Guy!

Great Tutor!!
Great tutor, my son understood Michael's teaching, he explained Physics better than my son's teacher. I am very satisfied, happy that my son is no longer feeling lost. Will definitely use Michael again.

Very knowledgeable tutor
I had a few sessions with Michael in preparation for my a final exam - he provided incredibly intuitive and clear explanations for a range of problems that I was having with the material. As a result of his input, I not only feel much better prepared for the exam, but also have developed my ability to break questions down into more manageable parts. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for math/probability tutoring.
