About Michael


Bio

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.

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!

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.

Helped my son surpass his Math SAT goal

After investing in a four month SAT prep course that yielded no results, I hired Mike to tutor my son for the Math SAT. After 12 lessons with Mike, my son’s Math SAT score increased 120 points. Mike always arrived promptly, prepared with an organized plan for the lesson. Through evaluating his homework and assessments, he monitored my son’s progress and tailored the lessons to best address the areas he was having trouble with. He was patient and encouraging when working with my son, and always kept me informed of his progress. In addition, he made himself available for questions between lessons and was flexible with scheduling. My son learned a lot from Mike and we're very pleased with the results. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Mike again if needed and highly recommend him to anyone who needs a great math tutor!

My kids like him

He tutored one daughter in precalc and another in Algebra 2 trig. He seems to be able to cover a lot of ground and my daughters thought he was very helpful. He was very effective with one of my daughters who has some attentional, focus, and test taking issues, helping her pass the Algebra/Trig regents after failing it and getting her SAT score up by 190 points after only a few sessions. He also helped her with the ACT, which she just took and said she felt much more confident after his help.
