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.

Michael's approach makes sense and the ideas are intriguing

Taught me sine and cosine graphs, and equations I did not previously understand. Got the ideas across the first time. I really appreciated his help. I am looking forward to meeting with him again.

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 through a friend whose daughter was also tutored by Mike. Mike was great! He came in and sat patiently with my son to review his work and to understand what he needed to do to make Algebra easier for him to understand. He made math enjoyable for my son. After working with Mike for only a couple weeks, not only were my son's grades improving, his confidence was as well. Mike helped my son pull through and pass the Regents exam with flying colors and he also passed the state CORE exam! Mike was also very flexible with scheduling and always pulled through for us with any last minute changes. We are definitely satisfied customers and highly recommend Mike for your math tutoring needs.

Great Tutor!

Michael began tutoring my son the end of last year for Geometry including prep for the regents. When my son started Algebra 2/Trig this year, we did not hesitate to call Michael again and are planning to enlist his services to begin prepping for the SAT. Michael relates very well to my son and my son is very comfortable with him as his tutor. Michael is very reliable and prompt. He begins lesson immediately and utilizes every minute of the hour to get through as much as possible. Michael juggles his schedule to accommodate us whenever possible. We definitely recommend his services.

Great Tutor

Very accommodating to fit a busy schedule but more important very effective. Provided individual instruction and connected well with the student. Over the years I have hired several tutors for my children, this was my best choice.

Diane, 6 lessons with Michael

Excellent tutor, no reservations in recommending him.

We hired Mike T. to provide SAT (math) tutoring to my daughter. He was easy to reach in terms of making the initial arrangements; flexible regarding the location where we would meet. My daughter described him as a patient teacher who was supportive of her efforts. She was already anxious about taking the SAT, and he did not add to that anxiety level at all. He validated the anxiety and at the same time helped her to keep moving forward. I would absolutely hire him again.
