About Michael


Bio

I am a graduate of Yale University. I received my Bachelor of Engineering Science in Chemical Engineering. Since graduation, I earned a certification to teach English as a Second Language, and traveled to Beijing, China, where I taught at both primary and high school levels (including several math and Physics high school courses). While I tutor a variety of subjects, I have always had a particular passion for math and Chemistry. In high school, I led the Ohio ARML Math team, and earned a gold...

I am a graduate of Yale University. I received my Bachelor of Engineering Science in Chemical Engineering. Since graduation, I earned a certification to teach English as a Second Language, and traveled to Beijing, China, where I taught at both primary and high school levels (including several math and Physics high school courses). While I tutor a variety of subjects, I have always had a particular passion for math and Chemistry. In high school, I led the Ohio ARML Math team, and earned a gold medal in the State Science Olympiad tournament for the Chemistry Lab event.

I bring the experience I gained competing in and writing for a variety of academic competitions to my students when I teach or tutor them, and I love the excitement of pushing students to reach and expand their potential, as well as the fun that comes from a student seeing a question a new way and understanding it on a different level. I know that education and brain-training are necessary for not just success, but fulfillment, in life. In my spare time, I enjoy crossword puzzles, running, bouldering, trivia, and watching a variety of sports (both American and international).

I have years of experience in both competition and classroom math, including finishing in the top 10 of the state of Ohio multiple times in math competitions, scoring a perfect 1000 in Academic Decathlon's math competition, and being chosen as the captain of the all Ohio math team when I was a high school senior. I have taught math (and science) in an international high school in Beijing to both native and non-native speakers, and I have experience teaching and tutoring through multiple online platforms.

Just like in Math, I have extensive experience both in the classroom and in competition - scoring AP 5s in both Chemistry and Physics, and scoring a perfect 800 on the SAT Chemistry test - while earning 6 state championship medals in Science Olympiad including a gold in Chemistry Lab. As a teacher and a tutor, I have helped students understand the core ideas of Che
