About Michael

I'm a senior at Williams College (a top-ranked liberal arts college), majoring in Philosophy and English literature. My curiosity has led me to explore other disciplines in a rigorous context - I have a strong college-level background in mathematics, am fluent in Spanish and Russian, and have acted in the theatre both in college and professionally.

As a tutor, I have experience in a number of areas, particularly mathematics, SATs, Spanish, and literary studies. In mathematics, I can provide extensive support, explanation, and assessment on all levels up to Multivariable Calculus. I can supplement the study of Spanish through instruction or review in grammar, assignment and evaluation of written work, speaking practice, etc.

Furthermore, if you are a student of literature, I can provide a customized course in classic texts, according to the model of the Oxford tutorial, guiding textual analysis, providing feedback on writing, etc. Alternatively, if you are writing essays for a class in literary studies (e.g. English), or philosophy, having been a TA and peer tutor in college, I can certainly work with you on these.


I have a lot of experience tutoring in a variety of subject areas, particularly in mathematics of all levels up to Multivariable Calculus and Spanish, t
Can also provide customized education in world literature, providing feedback on writing, textual analysis etc.

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.

Russian

Russian was my first language and I am entirely fluent in it. A guide in conversation or reading, I can test and strengthen your listening and reading comprehension. My knowledge of Russian literature is very comprehensive, and I am a senior at Williams College majoring in Philosophy and English, so I can support work on literary essays.

Spanish

I speak, read and write Spanish fluently. I took upper level literature courses in Spanish at Williams College.

He took the time to review the whole material and was very patient with my son. He used very simple explanations and associated sports fun with the math. I highly recommend him for every level of math
