About Michael

I am a retired businessperson, with many years experience in the medical laboratory business. I have a degree in Biology from Hobart College in Geneva, with a minor in Chemistry. Since my retirement I have been a substitute teacher for several years, teaching math and science at the middle school and high school level. I have recently moved into the Rochester area and have substituted since the spring of 2012 at various public schools in the area.

I am not a certified teacher; however, I feel that my general background helps me to communicate to kids in ways that general-knowledge teachers can't, and many times don't. I'd appreciate the opportunity to work with your son or daughter one-one-one, and I am willing to negotiate on price if that's an issue.

I also have had an interest in middle school and high school math; I'm good at it and can communicate it to kids, although I have no formal training or degree. My teaching style is informal and communicative; I coached youth soccer for 15 years and have a good rapport with middle school and high school age kids.
