History

Social Studies,

Social Studies

Even though my major concentration was business my minor is in History. Social Studies is a major part of History including understanding cultures, historical events, and the impact it plays on our societies today. At the middle school level social studies concentrates on the American experience but at the High school level the course curriculum covers more the World History arena. My knowledge in all areas of History comes from both my minor and my desire to read about History and its effects on who we are as a people.

Very responsive and flexible. Patient listener

Mike makes my daughter comfortable enough to crack her book open on her own to catch up with where Mike wants her to be. She's wishing we went to him sooner.

Math Problem

Mr. Michael L is a blessing!!! My daughter has always struggled with Math. She is now doing Geometry. She had her 1st tutoring session and I was totally amazed. I don't know how Mr. L did the lesson but however he showed her that day, she was happy & proud of herself. She actually understood it!!! It's been a few days since her session and I asked my daughter about her Math Class and she said that she has now been able to complete 3 of her assignments with the techniques that Mr. L has shown her. I am sooo excited!!! She says she can't wait to tell Mr. L on her next tutoring session. Well, with me writing this, Mr. L will know. But like I mentioned, Mr. L is definitely a blessing and both, my daughter and I can't wait for the near future sessions. I feel great and confident that my daughter will now do GREAT in her Geometry Class. Thank you so much, Mr. L!!!

Kim, 5 lessons with Michael
