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...

Excellent and Patient Tutor
Mr. Michael is an excellent tutor with great knowledge and an understanding for higher level math courses. He is extremely patient and thorough with his explanations. I am currently taking a college level Advanced Linear and Complex Variables course which naturally covers many tough topics. I was very confused and lost at first. But, after having a few sessions with Mr. Michael, I am more confident with my ability to solve questions in this course and am understanding the course's hard concepts much better. I recommend Mr. Michael to any student who is looking to understand a concept better and to improve as a student.

Efficient and knowledgable
Went over some Probability problems which Michael only needed to look at for a few seconds and then would start to talk me through it. Will definitely use Michael again if I get stuck.

Knowledgeable and Helpful!
Michael helped me in calculus, probability and statistics. He is well-informative in variety of math subjects. He solved problems promptly and walked me through it step-by-step. I highly recommend him!

Linear regression
Michael helped me with understanding how to interpret scatterplots and regression lines. I enjoyed my lesson and will schedule an appointment if there are any other statistical concepts in which I may be struggling.

Knowledgeable in Statistics
Dr. Hardy is well-versed in statistics and responds quickly to each problem I have struggled with. With Dr. Hardy, I always accomplish my tutoring goals and he has been a tremendous help in a class that is not my academic strength.

For Abstract Algebra
Dr. H is simply amazing. He started with examples and generalized to theorem. This approach is lot more friendly than the ways some other tutor that I have encountered do. Highly recommend him!!

Informative and patient!
Michael was helpful in explaining the material that I provided for review. I included homework assignments and class presentations to go over and Michael navigated the information well.

Great tutor
Michael went through each problem and moved on once I understood after he explained in detail. He even took the time to re-explain. That made me feel more confident and complete the assignment.

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!
