Great experience

Mike was great with my son. We’re on our third lesson, and plan to schedule more. It’s an amazing feeling when you see your child begin to gain confidence in math for the first time this school year. Thank you, Mike.

Michael F. - Excellent Math Tutor

My 14-year-old son was not the easiest personality to work with, but Michael was patient, calm, quiet, yet demonstrated knowledge and authority that got my son's attention and respect. I am very grateful for the short time Michael was able to work with my son. I am confident it was a turning point for my son. I wished I had connected earlier and I wish there was more time to continue. Highly recommend Michael F.

Patient and thorough

We really appreciate how Michael is patient and thorough in going through problems and concepts in Algebra with my son. He works with my other son in Physics too. Wonderful tutor.

Debra, 64 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable and Understandable Tutor

Michael did a great job at describing every concept to me in terms I could understand. He also had very in-depth knowledge of the subject (Calculus) and did not have to refer to anything for helping answer questions or explaining concepts.

Great help

I was panicking a bit before my finals for linear algebra and physics, but meeting with Mike a couple times helped out a lot with getting me prepared. We pretty much reviewed everything I had done during the semester, and he was knowledgeable on every topic. He even taught me some ways to solve problems that were easier than what I had been taught by my professors.

Fantastic

Michael really knew his stuff, and was able to explain more than one way to approach a problem. I am more than satisfied with his tutoring skills, an I would recommend him without reservation.

Steven, 1 lesson with Michael

Professional and knowledgeable tutor

My son and I are very impressed with Michael. He was very professional answering and responding promptly to all my questions. My son was very happy with his tutoring lesson. He said Muchael helped clarify in an easy way areas that were confusing for him. Looking forward in working with Michael in the future.
