About Michael

My name is Michael and I am originally from a small town in Minnesota. Since then, I have been to many different places, learning many things along the way. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and studied Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Studies. While attending school, I helped tutor at a local elementary school in reading, math, and science. I loved being able to pass on the lessons that I had learned in the past.

Following college, I joined the Peace Corps. I was sent to Sierra Leone in West Africa and I taught math and science at a middle and high school. Teaching there was very different from here in the U.S. My classes had between 35 and 80 students in them, many who could not speak English well or at all. This experience taught me so many things, but I think the most important thing I learned was patience. I believe that the most important attribute I can bring to teaching is patience with students.

I have always enjoyed math, and now I enjoy teaching it to others. I am currently a tutor at a Sylvan Learning Center teaching math and reading skills.

My major is in Evolutionary Biology and I have had the chance to do some biological research in some amazing locations.

Please get a hold of me if you would like some help!
