Expert Tutor for SAT and ACT
I love my job. When I do my job really well my students head off to college not only with higher scores on their tests but also scholarship money. I spent 5 years teaching SAT and ACT classes full-time for The Princeton Review and the last 17 years tutoring both tests in Boulder, CO. I can honestly say that I have thousands of hours of experience teaching just SAT and ACT prep. I work very hard so that my students can earn the highest scores and the most scholarship money.

I love my job. When I do my job really well my students head off to college not only with higher scores on their tests but also scholarship money. I spent 5 years teaching SAT and ACT classes full-time for The Princeton Review and the last 17 years tutoring both tests in Boulder, CO. I can honestly say that I have thousands of hours of experience teaching just SAT and ACT prep. I work very hard so that my students can earn the highest scores and the most scholarship money. I have personally gone through all of the real SAT's and ACT's that have been released since 2003. I have gained a firm sense of the content, structure and timing of each test. I have already helped hundreds of students raise their scores. I will gladly share what I've learned so that you can raise your scores too. Most of my students are able to make significant score improvements with just one or two sessions focused on their biggest weaknesses. However, I see the largest gains from students who also spend a little extra time to fully capitalize on their strengths. As a student at CU Boulder I was an editor for the Honors History Journal for 2 years and also part of the History Department's undergraduate scholarship program in which I read and evaluated scholarship application essays. I really enjoy helping students with their application essays and scholarship essays as well. I am always willing to answer any other questions or provide additional references from local students and parents.
FIVE point increase!
Michael worked with my son on his ACT prep and we are thrilled with the results. My son increased his ACT composite score by five points - after just five lessons with Michael. Prior to working with Michael, we paid for two very expensive boot camps and were not thrilled with a group prep environment. I wasn't sure how my son would do working with someone remotely, but he enjoyed his lessons and clearly improved his knowledge and skill for taking the test. I HIGHLY recommend Michale and plan to work with him again in the very near future.Holly, 5 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable and easy to communicate
So far my daughter had few lessons with him over the summer to prepare for ACT. My daughter tells me that he thoroughly knows the materials and helps her with questions right away. He sends me progress report right after the lesson to communicate with me as well. We are very pleased.Hannah, 5 lessons with Michael
Excellent in all ways!
Michael is an excellent tutor! He is intelligent, patient, know the material, and clearly understands how to prep someone for the GRE or other entrance exams. He is excellent at explaining complex problems, showing how to break down the steps, and teaching the skills needed to solve problems accurately and efficiently. Also, he is a really nice and cool guy. Preparing for this exam can feel daunting, but Michael has given me the confidence and the tools needed to succeed. His years of professionally teaching exam preparation for the Princeton Review clearly shows and is an asset. He also has a passion for tutoring, which not only makes sessions productive but enjoyable. I thought working on my mathematics would be boring and miserable, but incredibly, Michael has made it really fun!LeeAnn, 1 lesson with Michael
Great tutor for ACT review.
Michael does a good job of helping to prepare for the ACT. Having taught at Princeton Review, he brings knowledge of not just the subject matter, but also of how to take the test. He gave my son good tips on how to effectively strategize for the test.Deborah, 4 lessons with Michael
