About Michael

I've been tutoring math and test prep for 10 years. Since graduating from NYU in 2006, I've lived and worked in Beijing, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. As someone who has gotten perfect scores in the math sections of both the SAT and the ACT, I know both tests inside and out, and have tons of great strategies to help my students maximize their scores. Over my years of tutoring, I have amassed a database of over 50 practice tests, ensuring we only practice using official material.

While I have tutored all sections of the SAT and ACT, I’m a math specialist. I’ve worked with students on school support in every level of math up through BC Calculus, and I’ve tutored over 60 students in the SAT Math Level 2 Subject test. I do assign homework challenges after every lesson to further monitor both progress and sticking points.

I want all of my students to thrive, so if they’re ever unhappy with the quality of a lesson, they will not get billed. However, I do have a 12-hour cancellation policy.


Thousands of hours experience tutoring math. Perfect Scorer on SAT Math and ACT math, 800 on Math Level 2 SAT Subject test. I have a large wealth of material I've amassed over the last 10 years of tutoring.

Perfect scorer on ACT science, scored a 5 on AP Chemistry.

Perfect scorer on ACT English, 750 on SAT Critical Reading.

Helped students score in the 99th percentile of ISEE quantitative reasoning.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you crush your math tests!

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.

SAT Math

Tutored SAT math for the last 10 years. 800 scorer, and finished in the 99th percentile on math every time I've taken the test. I have over 30 practice tests to use, and have dozen of books on SAT math, with every tactic that's ever been written. Originally trained by Kaplan, I've worked both with test prep companies and on my own over the last 10 years. There's no SAT Math question that I haven't seen.

Great Tutor

Michael helped my son with ACT prep, specifically for math. He really helped my son who was feeling anxious about the upcoming test. Michael was on time, responsive, and did an excellent job of explaining things to my son. I definitely recommend him. I wish we had found him earlier.
