About Michael

Hi, I am Michael! I am currently a senior at North Carolina State University with a major in Psychology and a minor in Biological Sciences. While in college I realized that while some material may be more difficult to learn that others, the teacher has a much larger impact than I had ever thought. The professors that made their materials engaging and immersive almost always had more positive responses from students. I take this knowledge with me while tutoring in an attempt to make sure your student has the most enjoyable experience possible. I follow a lesson plan that outlines the topic before delving into the material more deeply in an attempt to make the lesson easier to follow. Each student is different, however, and I will work to meet your needs!

I have a year tutoring experience for high school pre-calculus and worked directly with students to improve their understanding of the concepts they were covering. Additionally I have worked in depth with mathematics in my undergraduate career here at North Carolina State University and have completed classes up to Linear Algebra and Matrices and Differential Equations. This breadth of study will help me give your student a stronger fundamental understanding of their course work! I also have experience tutoring in Biology and ACT/SAT prep.

I want to help my students as much as possible and hope to not only better their experience with the material but to also boost their self confidence. I will welcome any suggestions or resources you may have to make your time and experience more positive and will always respond quickly. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule a lesson!

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.

ACT Math

I have an extensive history in mathematics at the collegiate level taking everything from Calculus 1 to Differential Equations, Thinking Logically, and Linear Algebra here at NCSU. As a senior in college, I have had recent experience with the ACT and will be able to use my own testing experiences to benefit your child. I also tutor for the SAT and will be able to bring over effective study methods that can help on the ACT as well!

Algebra 1

I have a previous history tutoring Algebra 1-Calculus at the high school level. I have also taken up to Differential Equations and Linear Algebra at the collegiate level at NCSU. I would use both my history tutoring and experience in upper level mathematics to help your child acheive a better understanding of their material.

Algebra 2

I have a past history tutoring Algebra Two throughout high school and college. As a senior at NCSU I have taken Mathematics up to Differential Equations and Linear Algebra and will use my upper level mathematics knowledge to help your child strengthen their fundamentals and grasp concepts to help them succeed!

Calculus

Taken and passed Calc 1,2,3 Differential Equations and Linear Algebra at the collegiate level at NCSU.

Elementary Math

I have a history teaching several math subjects ranging through prealgebra to calculus and have taken up to Calculus 3 at the collegiate level. This blend of prior experience and fundamental understanding will give your child the best chance possible to succeed.

Prealgebra

I have a history tutoring Prealgebra in addition to the completion of Undergraduate coursework at NCSU up to Differential Equations and Linear Algebra leaving me with an extensive understanding of the fundamentals of Prealgebra.

Reading

I have a previous history tutoring Reading and have taken up to the 200 level of collegiate English requirements at NCSU. I have also tutored for upper level reading skills used in the SAT and ACT and would use this knowledge to assist in teaching the fundamentals of reading to my students.

SAT Reading

I have a previous history tutoring for the SAT (In both Math and Reading) and have taken up to the 200 level of collegiate English requirements at NCSU. I have also taken the SAT multiple times and use my own experience to better my understanding of how the test is set up and what skills the SAT looks for each student to have.

Trigonometry

Completed Mathematics coursework up to Differential Equations and Linear Algebra at the collegiate level here at NCSU. I also passed the qualification exam here on Wyzant and have a past history tutoring in both trigonometry and precalculus.
