About Michael

After tutoring in private homes for a year, I went off to China where I classroom taught English as a second language. I taught grades of Chinese speakers 6, 7, 8 and 9. I returned last summer to commence my graduate studies at Hunter College School of Education, as well as to assume responsibilities as a middle school teacher at a Charter School here in New York.

I enjoy developing relationships with my students, taking part in their growth and successes, and teaching them life skills along side the academic ones. While I specialize in math, I have been playing guitar for 14 years, enjoy sports, the outdoors, music, and international travel.

I scored a near perfect on the math portion of the SAT. I have received A's or A minus in 21 credits of college level mathematics. I have three years of classroom teaching experience, as well as two years of tutoring experience. I particularly enjoy the practical applications of math in both our everyday lives as well STEM subjects such as robotics, coding, engineering and programming.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments or concerns. Remember, our communications are always private.

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.

Common Core

As a middle school math teacher in New York City, I am responsible for knowing the common core standards both inside and out. When I prepare for a lesson, each segment is driven by the desired student outcomes, which are backed by the common core standards.

Finite Math

I took finite mathematics as a freshman at the George Washington University. Not only did I receive an A for the class, I tutored other students both during and after the course. I went on to take multiple higher level courses that were built on top of the subjects introduced in Finite Math.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for 14 years. I began with 1-1 lessons, learning basic chords for songs I liked, and went on to theory and applications. To this day I continue to learn and improve my technique and method. I have taught students guitar based on their interests and goals.

IELTS

For two years I was an ESL teacher in China. During that time, I became acquainted with many students who were studying for the IELTS. I had the opportunity to tutor them 1-1. All of my students scored highly.

Linear Algebra

During the spring of 2015 I took an online course in Linear Algebra, at the undergraduate level, from the University of Phoenix. I scored an A in the course. I led my class team in our group projects and subsequent final project. This course was predicated on the understanding of concepts gained from college algebra.

Study Skills

I taught a course titled "Study Skills" during the 2014-2015 school year. The students were 9th graders. My responsibilities included designing curriculum, planning lessons, and tracking student progress towards their goals. As a tutor, I find it helpful to learn as much as I can about the student before creating an individualized study plan for that student.
