Bio

Hello,

I graduated from UNCW class of 2004 with a B.S. degree in Mathematics and Statistics. I've been tutoring math for more than ten years and I am currently a math instructor at a community college going into my 6th year. As a youth minister at a church in Durham, NC, I have volunteered to tutor many young and older church members as well as people from in the community. I teach and tutor basic math, Algebra, Trigonometry, prealgebra, and others.

Hello,

I graduated from UNCW class of 2004 with a B.S. degree in Mathematics and Statistics. I've been tutoring math for more than ten years and I am currently a math instructor at a community college going into my 6th year. As a youth minister at a church in Durham, NC, I have volunteered to tutor many young and older church members as well as people from in the community. I teach and tutor basic math, Algebra, Trigonometry, prealgebra, and others.

Along with tutoring math, I also explain and teach students how to effectively take notes, take test, manage their time doing homework, creating a positive learning or studying atmosphere and many study skills that will improve their knowledge in math. I also make sure they understand the difference between "understanding math material and knowing math material". I feel there is much more students should learn and understand when it comes to education than just showing a student how to do a bunch of math problems. Knowledge these skills such as note taking, test taking, communication with teachers, and understanding how students learn best can effectively improve a students success rate.

Study Skills

Some of my main topics I like to touch on when tutoring students are learning styles, anxiety, managing your time, note taking, test taking skills, and general study strategies. If a student is weak in any of these areas, I will work with the student to make each topic stronger. In addition, a student maybe strong in one of these areas therefore I can provide tips to continue to enhance or sharpen their strong points.

Patient and Courteous

My daughter had her first session with Michael a few days ago. I am confident that with his help she will improve her Math grade. He is very patient and goes through the problems step by step.

Awesome Tutor

Michael is very patient and thorough when it comes to tutoring. I am very pleased with the service he is providing my daughter. Her grades in Math are improving with his guidance. I recommend him to anyone who has a child struggling in math.

Angela, 13 lessons with Michael

Great tutor!

Very patient with my child. Listens to and makes sure my child has an understanding of what she is learning.

Jayden, 12 lessons with Michael

Very patient and excellent tutor

Michael is a very patient and excellent tutor. He has a unique way to make you learn the subject with a clear foundation. He listens and points out where exactly your weaknesses are in Math. Teachers in the classroom don't have the time to help students understand certain concepts that take time to understand. That's why Michael takes his time to understand how his students learn, and then he starts to teach and explain problems with a step by step approach according to his or her learning method.

Michael is an excellent tutor and I am beginning to understand more about Algebra I, thanks to Michael. I highly recommend Michael for other students who need extra support in Algebra.

Outstanding teacher

Mr. H. is a great teacher. We were looking for someone who was familiar with the math applications taught in the new core curriculum math course taught in WCPSS. Mr. H. was the answer to our prayers. He offered an assessment of where my son was in terms of understanding the information and made suggestions for his improvement. After each session I receive input on what my son needs to do for the week. We have had five math tutors over the years but none have offered this level of service.
