About Michael

My passion to directly instruct students is by far stronger than teaching in the classroom, because I believe that students achieve higher when instructed one on one. In addition, I believe that my skill set and teaching style is more suited for effective tutoring rather than whole group teacher.

I've been teaching 4th and 5th grade math for the past four years and had a variety of tutoring opportunities over the past 8 years. I have a strong grasp on the elementary math common core standards and grades 3-5 EOG prep, and specialize in providing students with a variety of manipulatives and problem-solving strategies that based on previously learned basic math skills. In other word, it is my goal to make grade-level math easier.

I am currently still in the classroom, therefore, my availability is from 4:30-8:30 on M,T,Th,F. Also, 12 noon-6:00 on Saturdays. My base rate is only $35 an hour. Since I am a full-time teacher, it is not my motive to make a bunch of money, but rather to make a bunch of difference in the math conceptual understanding achievement of students who are in need to master elementary common core math.

I am available to come to the students' home if necessary, but I prefer using a study room at one of the public libraries. I look forward to hearing from you and your child that I may help meet their learning needs.

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.

Common Core

I've taught fourth and fifth grade common core math standards for the past four years. I've attended numerous professional development and PLC sessions where I've unpacked the standards that I may develop the appropriate strategies that students need to master the standards. I also possess a variety of resources to differentiate instruction and assist students in mastery of the common core standards.

Elementary Math

I have a well documented record in helping students master elementary math concepts and common core math mastery while serving in the capacity of a mentor, tutor and teacher. I have served a diversity of students with a variety of learning styles, and develop the necessary motivation and confidence to succeed in elementary math.
