About Michael

I am a math and science tutor from Levittown, New York. I graduated from the University of Delaware in 2013 with a Bachelors in Earth Science Education, and I am about to complete my Masters in Geological and Environmental Sciences. In these programs, I gained valuable knowledge not only in earth sciences, but in chemistry and physics as well. I have always been a strong student in math subjects, earning high scores on the SAT and GRE (164, in the 87th percentile). I also took the PRAXIS for teaching, and scored one point short of a perfect score in the math section.

Not understanding a subject is like trying to read a book with some pages missing. Highly frustrating, and you can't figure out the plot. I find that the best approach to tutoring a difficult subject is to help a student get to the point where they can explain the topic to me. This begins with finding the parts of said topic that the student has trouble understanding, and helping them see the topic as a whole.

For the past four years, I have tutored mainly grades 8-12 in subjects of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, earth science, chemistry, and physics, as well as test prep for the SAT, ACT and GRE in math. I first tutored a group of Education majors at the University of Delaware in 2012 for the PRAXIS math. Once out of Delaware, I tutored for three years with Club Z Tutoring, sometimes helping a student for only a few sessions, and sometimes for the entire school year.

I like to use visual representations to show my students how the math may apply to a real life situation. This helps them rationalize the numbers into something concrete (this applies to tutoring physics, too).

Science has always been my favorite subject to teach. I have a more extensive background in science subjects than any other, so I can explain the significance of each topic to my students with ease.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me. I am eager to help you excel in the classroom and on tests!

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.

Trumpet

I have played the trumpet for 16 years. In middle school and high school, I was in the concert band, jazz band, marching band, pit orchestra for three years and played in a brass choir. At the University of Delaware, I played in the marching band for all of the home football games, and played in parades and exhibitions.
