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!
