About Michael

I have a B.A. in Mathematical Sciences from Binghamton University, and my Masters in Secondary Mathematics (Gr. 7 - 12) from Pace University. I have been a tutor for over 10 years, covering all subjects from basic math to calculus. I also have tutoring experience with the SAT and ACT math examination. Aside from tutoring, I used to be a freelance math item writer and editor. I have written two practice manuals for Intermediate Algebra II, test items for Algebra I/II and Geometry as well. I have taught Grades 4th through 8th, and have taught Common Core Algebra I and Geometry for accelerated classes. I am currently working at a Day School, and have been there for three years.

As far as teaching style is concerned, I vary my lessons based upon the individual student's aptitude. If I see that a student is struggling with a concept, my instruction will be more involved, explaining the process step by step. I typically can cover 2-3 topics per hour based upon student comprehension. I don't rush, I don't pick up and leave once we hit 60 minutes, I try to make the process as painless as possible. I realize that 99 percent of my students aren't big fans of math, and I will do whatever I can to ensure comprehension and build confidence. Anyone can learn math, it's my job to find out how you learn.

Great tutor

Words cannot express how thankful I was to have found Michael as a tutor for my son. My son was in his first year of high school and was having a tough time trying to understand Algebra 1. To make matters worse, the new CORE curriculum was introduced that year which also added more misery with the newer and complicated formulas and techniques. I found Mike on WyzAnt and also heard about him throug
