About Mike

As a father of four children, I have enjoyed my time helping and teaching them mathematics. Teaching them math involves helping them to understand the theory behind the numbers. Through analogies and visual examples, I've had much success strengthening their fundamentals and developing their skills. I'd like to give back to others and believe I can successfully tutor your child.

As an engineer, my job is highly math dependent. My emphasis is structural engineering and I graduated from Purdue University. With 20 years of experience, I've handled many high profile project and had several project accomplishments including the US Capitol, US Naval Academy, NASA Vehicle Assembly Building, Virginia State Capitol and the Milwaukee City Hall to name a few. My current roll is engineering manager so I feel I've become very skilled at motivating people and believe I will be able to motivate your children to love math.

The engineering curriculum is extremely mathematics intensive involving many higher order classes through calculus 3.

Learning how to walk took each of us a period of bumps and bruises until we learned to balance putting one foot in front of the other. Math isn't easy but understanding the fundamentals will help you walk through life... I want to help you start to walk.
