C to an A

Mike is a phenomenal tutor for teens. More than mental capacity, teens have to commit to this themselves. My son went from a C to an A within two tests after working with Mike. He has done a phenomenal job teaching and mentoring my son.

Phil, 24 lessons with Michael

Excellent

Excellent! Very knowledgeable. He helped me understand the steps to complete my end-of-year high school statistics math project. I would definitely recommend him if you need help with probability/statistics.

Ani, 2 lessons with Michael

Precalculus/ vector test prep

This was an extensive review over the unit for a test for my son and it went very well leaving him confident and prepared for the test. So far all of the lessons have been very helpful and more than we could have asked for. Very grateful.

A Very Knowledgeable & Personable Math Tutor

Michael quickly helped my child get a better understanding of concepts for his IB Math 3/4 class. Things such as rates, derivatives, and optimization were explained in a manor that made sense. With a calm demeanor and ability to quickly assess what's needed, I'm glad I chose Micheal as our tutor. I will definitely use again.

Knowledgeable and Thoughtful

We've only met with Michael once, but my daughter liked him very much. She thinks he'll be able to help her be more successful and looks forward to working hard. Thank you Michael!

Darcy, 22 lessons with Michael

Learned a lot

First class made me hopeful. Our daughter thought she learned more in the first meeting than all semester thus far. Good start. Long way to go! Thanks

Betsy, 5 lessons with Michael

Positive, patient and knowledgeable

I asked Amanda how she would rate her last tutoring session and she said 5 stars! Michael is a very knowledgeable tutor and explains things in a way students can understand. He is also very personable and positive which is important when kids do not understand something.

Brenda, 25 lessons with Michael

Micheal was very helpful

He is a great tutor and provides excellent feedback per lesson. I would recommend him to anyone needing help in calculus. we will definitely use him again in the near future.

Troy, 5 lessons with Michael

Fantastic dedicated tutor

Micheal was a diligent and very capable tutor. He helped me through discrete structures at PSU. Whenever we came across a topic or question we could not solve together Michael would look at it after the session was over and email me helpful material to solve the problem. I really appreciate his dedication and assistance with this discrete mathematics course. I surely would not have been as successful without his help.
