About Michael

I am looking for college students to tutor in daytime. Catch me now before the end of the semester rush.

I have both a BA in Mathematics and an MS in Statistics from Rutgers University. I have been tutoring math since 1991 and statistics since 2003. I also have my Certificate of Eligibility for Secondary School Mathematics from the State of NJ. I tutor part-time but I am actually a bio-statistician by profession. I have tutored over 150 different students - anywhere from a few weeks to 5 years in duration. I can supply references if needed.

I believe that effective communication and a supportive environment is crucial to a good teaching/learning relationship. I don't mind questions, in fact I encourage them at any time!I see learning as a 2-way street. It is the students responsibility to stop me immediately and ask questions if he/she does not understand. It is my responsibility, in response, to answer those questions and find a new way of explaining the problem so he/she does understand it. I believe a student should be able to "talk" mathematics as well as "write" it. I am picky when it comes to using the correct terminology, but it is done with a supportive attitude and with good humor! I am very easy going and approachable!

My philosophy regarding math is as follows: it is a fantastic way of looking at the world and also improves necessary critical thinking skills in a student. In my opinion, nearly everyone can learn math if given the correct support and instructional methods. Let me share this great world with you!

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.

Biostatistics

I have a BA in Mathematics and an MS in Statistics from Rutgers University. With my MS degree, I had a concentration in biostatistics including:

Biostats I - Observational Studies
Biosttas II - Clinical Trials
Categorical Data Analysis
Survival Analysis
Survey Sampling

For my 10 classes (30 credits), I graduated with a 3.2/4.0 GPA.

Differential Equations

As you can see from my profile, I have my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and my graduate degree in Statistics. My undergraduate education included a class in ordinary differential equations and differential equations used in my Calculus classes.

Discrete Math

In my years as an undergraduate, I took many classes in discrete math and math modeling. Some of the classes I took were:

Calculus 1
Calculus 2
Calculus 3 (Multivariate Calculus)
Differential Equations
Advanced Calculus
Intro to Linear Algebra
Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra
Theory of Probability
Theory of Statistics
Combinatorial Theory
Functions of A Complex Variable
2 Mathematical Models classes, Graph Theory Class

Linear Algebra

I had 2 semesters of linear algebra as an undergrad when I earned my BA in Mathematics. Then, I used it extensively when I earned my MS in Statistics.

Probability

I studied probability extensively during my work towards my BA in Mathematics and my MS in Statistics. I have worked with co-workers and private students in this field.

I keep asking myself, "how did we find such a GREAT tutor?"

When my daughter got back to school after an extended absence, it didn't take but a moment to decide how to get her caught up with the class. Contact Mike. He understood the situation and wasted no time in scheduling a tutoring session. He is reliable, uses the entire hour productively, and according to my 16 year old he explains the concepts in a way that is easy to understand. He even comes prep
