About Michael

I am currently a teacher at Koontz Intermediate School. I love working with students of all ages and on a variety of subjects. I have been lucky enough to travel and teach many diverse topics in many different places. 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.

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.

After returning home from Sierra Leone, I worked in multiple environmental learning centers. I was lucky enough to be able to teach science through the outdoors. Since then I have been a reading teacher as well as a computer teacher. All of my diverse experiences have allowed me to become the patient teacher I am today. I know that all students have their own diverse issues and there is not only one way to teach someone. I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I was a math teacher for two years at both the middle and high school levels for the Peace Corps. My experiences there made me into a much more patient tutor. Upon my return stateside, I have tutored all levels of math for the past three years, including Algebra 1.

Biology

At the University of Wisconsin-Madison my major was Evolutionary Biology. I was able to learn hands on while working in a laboratory at the time as well. Biology has always been my favorite subject and being able to explore life itself is fascinating to learn as well as to teach to others.

Great!

Micheal is very patient. He is helping my son out of a math black hole and succeeding! He's played back, and on time. I'll hire him again. Wait, I already did!
