About Michael

I have always loved math, logic, and puzzles. Learning math has helped me so much in life to understand how things work, learn how to analyse and respond to arguments, and make use of what's available to solve the problems I face.

I taught for two years in a classroom setting in private, Christian schools, teaching algebra, geometry, trigonometry and pre-calculus. I taught using the Saxon curriculum for Algebra 1/2, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Advanced Math (Geometry was integrated within these courses). I taught middle and high school students.

My favorite is that I have the privilege to teach my own children, whom my wife and I homeschool. Currently, I teach my three oldest children (Elementary level) using the MathUSee curriculum, which takes advantage of manipulatives to aid in understanding. I am also teaching methods of speed math to aid their number sense & ability to compute mentally.

I love helping others reach that "aha" moment, where they understand and are able to succeed. I am very talented at explaining the complex in simple terms, and look forward to helping you succeed, too. Math doesn't have to be an ogre you dread!

My teaching methods include evaluation, use of manipulatives, speed testing, extra practice, and proficiency testing. I will gladly help you work through whatever assignments you might have for school. My goals are always understanding & proficiency. With good instruction, you can be good at math, too. My areas of expertise include: Elementary Math, Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry.

I am available Monday & Tuesday from 9AM-9PM, Wednesday 9AM-6PM, or else by special arrangement. Give me a call, and I'll help wade through this challenge.
