About Michael

I was part of the Math Honor Society and one my duties was to tutor my fellow classmates in whatever math subject they were struggling in. On numerous occasions my help was needed, and my students were left with a much better understanding and their grades improved significantly.

I also volunteered my time at the local elementary school teaching math to 2nd graders. These students required a much more different approach to teaching than high schoolers, and it was a really eye-opening experience. I can now confidently say that I have a strong ability to teach younger kids as well. From these experiences, I understand how to clarify difficult topics for my tutees and how to make math as easy and non-frustrating as possible.

Math was always my strongest subject, and as an applied mathematics and statistics major at Stony Brook University, my skills are only getting better and better. I am confident that with the mastery of mathematics I currently have, I could adeptly teach any student looking for help in high school level mathematics and lower.

As a student myself, I understand the importance of mastering math in school, as this becomes the foundation for your adult lives. I'm happy to help anyone who reaches out with the desire to better prepare themselves for the future.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is a very foundational course. It introduces students to functions, exponents, polynomials, and more, all of which are widely used concepts in higher level mathematics. Considering I'm majoring in Applied Mathematics in college, I think it speaks volumes towards my mastery in this area. Furthermore, when I took this course in 8th grade, I received an A.

SAT Math

When I took the SAT in my senior year of high school, I received an 800 in math, a perfect score. In order to achieve this, a high level of mathematics mastery must be present, as well as the ability to spot trick questions, something the SAT is known for. With my experience and knowledge of the SAT, I think I can aptly prepare any student for the Math section of the SAT.
