“**able to guide you through a problem and clear up any confusion**”

It is time to go back to school so you can learn a new concept or skill. The day is going well and you understand everything that your teachers give lectures on, until you have to take that “dreadful class.” That is right, by “dreadful class,” I am talking about math. You already mastered the basics such as addition and subtraction, but it gets

Michael is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Michael to get started.

Michael demonstrated the methods of solving algebraic expressions,equations,absolute values and a linear problem. He was able to recognize each problem,explain each part of them and clarify any confusion. I would recommend his tutoring for people that want a expert.

Michael tutored to reduce my son Algebra, and trigonometry. My son really learned a lot in the two sessions he had. He was impressed by his patients and his way to help understand what he was doing

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 and algebra 2 are connected. Algebra 1 is learning the basics, whereas algebra 2 is applying the basics in solving intermediate problems.

I am an expert in simplifying mathematical expression, solving equations (both linear and quadratic), translating word problems into equations, solving systems of equations (2 equations that consist of more than one variable), and graphing functions.

I have passed the 2008 Math A Regents with a score of 82.

I have passed the 2010 Math B Regents with a score of 84.

Math A and Math B were former names of the math courses. They were replaced with Integrated Algebra.

I have received A- in AutoCAD, A in Autodesk Inventor, and A- in SolidWorks. I have assisted others in my university who needed help in using AutoCAD. I also participated in an internship at NASA where I used SolidWorks in an assigned project to increase manufacturing efficiency. In addition, I used SolidWorks in my Senior Design class to assemble a gear mechanism for a trash compactor using different mating constraints such as gear mates. In addition, for anyone who is interested in manufacturing, I have experience in using Mastercam. Mastercam is a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) program that applies manufacturing processes to AutoCAD applications.

I took this course in college in Spring 2012 semester and received an A- in the class. I am currently guiding students through the concepts of this subject matter in weekly workshops that I help facilitate at New York City College of Technology. The workshops focus on the fundamentals of calculus and covers the following key topics such as limit definition of derivative, rules of derivatives, continuity and limits, derivative tests to graph functions, optimization, and fundamentals of integration.

I have experience in preparing high school students to take the algebra 1 and 2 regents exams. This new branch of math asks questions on topics they would normally learn in 4 years, but is compacted into 1 year. I have reviewed with them the number system and different types of numbers in that system, in which they will apply when solving equations. This will help them to understand why the solution to a unique problem is valid. I have also explained to students different types of graphs and how each one is named as such. For example, linear graphs are given that name because when you connect all the points on the graph, you get a straight line. I am doing more than just showing them how to solve a problem. I am explaining to them why we choose a certain approach to solving that problem. When they understand which approach to use, they can apply it to establish an equation and find a solution with ease.

I received an A- when I took Differential Equations in Spring 2013 . When I took Dynamics and Vibrations of Machines in Fall 2013, I had to use differential equation concepts to solve every problem. I understand first order and second order differential equations and each type of equation can be homogenous or non-homogenous. For first order, you must first find the integrating factor and then multiply the original equation by that factor. Second order differentiation requires that you establish a characteristic solution and find the roots. Unlike first order, second order includes a second derivative term.

Mastery of the following:

Long multiplication

Long division

Fractions

Order of operations (PEMDAS)

Word problems

I am familiar with Windows Operating System.

Finding the measurements of different types of angles

Finding the interior and exterior angles of a polygon

Proof Theory

I received an A- when I took the course in Spring 2011 semester. I know how to write the syntax for a matrix & compute the sum, difference, cross product and element by element product of two matrices. I am familiar with the plot functions, finding the roots of a polynomial & finding the polynomial when the roots are known. I have also used MATLAB in my materials testing lab course when required to write reports in during Fall 2013 semester.

I majored in Mechanical Engineering Technology and I have a Bachelor's degree in this field of study. I received an A- in Applied Statics and Strengths of Materials, which is one of the most important topics covered in mechanical engineering. I understand the static equilibrium equations when you have the sum of the moments equal to zero and the sum of the forces equal to zero. I can even calculate the inertia of simple geometric shapes using the transfer formula. I also understand the Bernoulli concept in Fluid Mechanics which is the conservation of energy of a fluid flowing through a pipe. I received a B+ in this class.

I have used Microsoft Word to write research papers and lab reports for college assignments and projects. I am able to easily modify and send my work to others in a convenient way, as well as take my assignments with me anywhere I go. I can utilize advanced features in Microsoft Word to set the page margins, font requirements, create tables, and perform spell check.

Percents (used in sales tax)

I have passed High School math regents.

I understand:

Logarithmic functions

Composition of functions

Dividing polynomials (fundamental and synthetic methods)

I have an Advanced Regents High School Diploma that I received when I graduated Flushing High School in June 2010. My math regents scores for Math A and Math B were 82 and 84 respectively. My science regents scores for Living Environment, Earth Science, and Physics were 94, 84, and 79 respectively. As for history, I received an 87 in Global and a 90 in United States.

This is my favorite AutoCAD software. I find it to be the most simplistic one for 3D modeling and assembling. The first time I took the course in learning this software, I received an A-. After successfully completing the course, I applied this AutoCAD software to complete my assignment in my NASA internship and complete a project in my senior design class. You can read more about this in my AutoCAD qualifications section. I have even exposed myself to the CSWP exam, in which the test emphasizes on configuring your 3D model and applying equations to manage your dimensioning. Other than that, I can also create pipes and vents using 3D sketching mode and more advanced 3D modeling techniques.

Knowledge in:

Pythagorean theorem

Sine, Cosine, and Tangent functions

Law of Sine and Law of Cosine

Converting degrees to radians

Angles in a coordinate system

Proving trigonometric identities
