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 have taught several universities ranging from a open-admissions institution to M.I.T. (where I had a three-year appointment), and also including several state universities.
I am more interested in helping students who want to understand than those who want to compete for test scores and grades.
I can tutor students not only in the math section of the GRE, but also in the material of the...

Terry, 33 lessons with Michael
Michael was knowledgeable and was able to guide me in a very detailed and concise ways.
First we looked at how to answer some fairly open-ended questions about the nature of statistical inference. Then we looked at some that were mathematical problems. Several of these involved the equivariance of maximum likelihood estimation. Michael and I went over all the questions and Michael was able to address each question with an open mind. Michael was very thoughtful and very conscious to what the question was asking for. I am definitely looking forward in using his services for my class and classes for this semester. I recommend Michael as a tutor to anyone that is looking for a very thoughtful and conscious tutor.

Knowledgable/patient tutor
He is knowledgeable, patient. I wish we covered more problems, but the problems we focused I learned from the interaction experience. I should have shared my attempts to the problem a priori, so for not having that before hand, I was very impressed. I only had 1 session with him thus far.

Extremely smart guy!
He really is knowledgeable! Even when the assigment is ambiguos, he has ways to figure out exatly what they are asking for. And the fact that he explains as he goes makes it really easy to follow. He is my go-to resource for graduate stats

Great Tutor
Michael is an excellent tutor. He helped my son through his Discrete Math class. He took all challenging questions and explained them in the most meticulous manner. He is also very flexible in short notice sessions. Thank you Michael for helping my son through such a challenging course, it is truly appreciated.

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.
