About Michael

I studied applied science at UNC, and am now a part-time student preparing to go into graduate study for chemistry. I'm interested in being a Teaching Assistant when I get to grad school, so I want to take some time to build up my experience in helping students. I have tutored before for students in Spanish, and now I'm looking to extend my experience to math/science students as well.

What I think is the best part about tutoring is how it gives me the chance to show others my perspective of the subject matter. As someone who finds physical science fascinating, I'm hoping that I'll not only help you succeed, but I'll inspire you to really be interested in the material; that inspiration and genuine curiosity is what I believe gets you to the A you want!

As an applied science major, I completed math courses through introductory multivariable calculus and differential equations. I've incorporated what I learned in later coursework, so I am comfortable with the material and their applications.

I am comfortable tutoring general physics, general chemistry and introductory organic chemistry. The knowledge that I gained in those courses were used in later classes as well as in research lab settings.

I have taken several courses in Spanish through school and speak it conversationally by practicing with members of my family who are fluent. I have experience reviewing grammar concepts to high-school students who get stuck on some of the trickier points (e.g. preterite vs imperfect tense).

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.

Physical Science

I have my Bachelor's in Applied Science, which involves a lot of physical science. I have taken courses in materials science, and am currently in my second semester of physical chemistry. All of those courses emphasize the interface between physics and chemistry you see with physical science.
