I am an experienced tutor with degrees in Psychology and Public Policy, and a certificate in Applied Statistics. As a tutor of 3 years, I’ve enhanced my students’ comfort with statistics, revitalized their writing skills, and elevated my students’ knowledge of psychology.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Penn State, where I graduated first in my program. Immediately following my graduation from college, I attended Duke University for my Master’s in Public Policy, one of only six individuals in my cohort to do so. I further augmented my experience and knowledge in statistics later, receiving my Certificate in Applied Statistics from North Carolina State University.

Helping you (or your son or daughter) increase their understanding and succeed in their work is why I tutor. Nothing is more fulfilling as a tutor than when working with someone and seeing them experience that “ah ha” moment in our sessions.

Government & Politics

Government & Politics was a favorite course of mine during highschool. I performed very well and felt I learned a lot in the course. As a result, I developed a great passion for this topic and minored in it for my undergraduate degree at Penn State University and for my graduate at Duke University. My passion in this topic is very useful in working with students and helping them succeed in this very interesting topic.
Political Science,

Political Science

During my undergraduate education I minored in political science and completed coursework in Comparative Politics, American Government, and Political Theory. I applied this knowledge as a Research Assistant on two major political science projects, a survey of international law, with results presented at the International Law Association and American Society of International Law conference in 2014, and the Comprehensive Statistical Database of Multilateral Treaties. I focused my honors thesis on the psychology of political decisions, using the Scottish Referendum in 2014 as a case study. I also completed a Master's in Public Policy that build upon this knowledge of the policy process.

Awesome tutor

Knowledgeable and explains very well

Statistical terms such as mean, mode and median as well as scales of measurement. We discussed my upcoming subject for this week as well. We also did a few computations and discussed the order to do math problems.

Amazing tutor who really explains concepts.

The entire reason I was able to pass and understand the material taught in my statistics course was entirely due to Michael. He properly explained concepts by taking examples from my hobbies, of which we discussed after lessons, while still teaching fundamentals and making sure I understood where to fix any issues, and if I was jumping the gun on some concepts. He helped me understand how to properly take these tests, how to read tables and guided me through assignments if I had any trouble. Flawless tutor, I highly recommend his services if you can put the time into learning these things.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient

Michael has only met with my daughter once, but I can tell he is going to be very helpful. He is preparing my daughter for her college psychology test. She is struggling with the book and concepts, Michael did a nice job breaking down the content. I'm glad we found such a knowledgeable tutor.
