Bio

Hi there! My name is Michael and I'm new to Wyzant. I am also new to tutoring, although I do have one years' experience in a vocational rehabilitation program, teaching remedial and real-life mathematics to adults working to escape addiction and homelessness. As a manager of an independent bookstore, I have also trained over thirty new booksellers in the subtleties and intricacies of myriad retail operations.

Hi there!

My name is Michael and I'm new to Wyzant. I am also new to tutoring, although I do have one years' experience in a vocational rehabilitation program, teaching remedial and real-life mathematics to adults working to escape addiction and homelessness. As a manager of an independent bookstore, I have also trained over thirty new booksellers in the subtleties and intricacies of myriad retail operations.

In addition, I have the insight and empathy that comes from 6 years of higher education in mathematics: from starting in a place of relative comfort, descending into utter confusion, slowly gaining traction with new concepts and methodologies, then feeling the fog lift and, ultimately, stepping into the light of understanding.

So if you're struggling to complete that journey and would like a helping hand, please get in touch. If I believe that I can help, then I would be more than happy to do so.

Good luck,

Michael

Algebra 1

Algebra was one of the more advanced topics I covered as a math class volunteer for formerly homeless, addicted, and incarcerated adults. Emphasizing problem-solving skills over rote memorization and strict formulation, I seek to endow students with the confidence and ability to strengthen their current understanding and develop new skills.
