Michael was an amazing tutor. I was terrified of statistics and had zero understanding of it. I had to learn an entire book in 8 short weeks! Thanks to Michael's patience and great teaching skills, I completed the class with an A. I highly recommend him as a tutor!

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.

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.

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.

Thank you mike for helping me! I have so much more confidence in myself with this test coming up and my math skills are being better! Thank you for helping me understand math!

Highly recommend. Mike is a great teacher & easy to schedule w/. He's given me great test taking tips (GRE math) that will save me time test day. I'm not a math person per se and his expertise has helped give me a stronger grasp of how to understand the reasoning / a visualization behind certain math concepts.

Mike is great. Helped my son out last minute with algebra 2 finals. Great tutor. Flexible. Solid communication skills. My son is much mote confident.l and less stressed about his algebra 2 final next week. Thank you !!!

Michael was wonderful as usual. He provided my daughter with test taking skills. In addition, he provided her with tips and logical solutions to improve her mathematics skills.

Michael was extremely helpful. It was like I was in class by the way he explained things, he really knows how to break down a difficult subject like stats into everyday language. His experience in this subject is one of the first things you notice. I wish he could've been my stats teacher. I will definitely be back for another lesson. He is worth every dollar.

Nikki really likes the way Michael approaches reviewing the fundamentals in the beginning to ensure a understanding of the assistance needed.

Michael is a great help to my son who is struggling in his statistics class. My son is taking his test tomorrow and hopefully will do better with Michael's help.

I have a fair amount of knowledge, but occasionally need support when working through complex problems to avoid common mistakes. Michael was very patient and pleasant to work with

Took his time to make sure that I was understanding each and every step that I did. I went from not understanding the core concepts of radicals to gaining much more confidence about how to solve these problems.

Michael is very committed and caring. Has provided great encouragement to our client regarding his math course. Feel very lucky to have found him.

I appreciate the way Michael takes the time to not only help my daughter with the material, but how he really pays attention to her learning style.

As an adult student who had been away from math for many years, and never had any contact with statistics, I was terrified of so many things prior to taking my course. I knew I would need help, but really had no idea where or how to find that help. After reading about Michael's background and experience, I had hope, but also was so nervous about my being out of contact with any math for so long. I met with Michael weekly and have to say that without his direction and support I would not have done so well with my course. I am very happy to say that I survived a fifteen week statistics course, and even managed to get an 'A' in the course with the help of Michael explaining concepts and criteria I never thought I'd find interesting. I have only positive and good things to say about Michael and how he approaches teaching and my experience of him as a tutor. I highly recommend Michael and have no doubt about his ability to help others like me and those even different from myself to reach their goal of understanding course material.

My daughter seems to really be benefiting from his help. She likes him, understands most of what he is trying to teach her, and she looks forward to her lessons (as much as you can look forward to math!). Very effective, and would definitely recommend.

Great tutor.

Mike helped me through my last course as an undergrad in business statistics, and I could not be more thankful. His schedule was very flexible and always found a way to work around mine. He definitely knows his stuff and was able to slow the material down and break it down well for further understanding. It was a tough course and after spending time working with Mike, I was wishing that he was my instructor instead of the current one at my school. Mike's teaching philosophies were different and much easier to understand. I most definitely do not have the mind for math, but Mike gave me the confidence to do well on my exams and worked me through my homework one problem at a time, which was very helpful.

Mike is a fantastic tutor and he will not let you down. He is a nice guy and very patient too.

I want to recommend Michael G. to anyone who needs some extra help with statistics. Here is some of my story. I am a first year graduate student who had to complete some required courses during my first semester. Statistics was one of these courses. I was able to sign up for an online statistic class. I soon found out that was a mistake, because I’m not a person who does well without in-person interaction, so, by the first week of statistics, I was crying out for help. Some of my friends suggested checking out Wyzant.com. I’m glad I did. When Michael started working with me, he helped me to understand that statistics is a beautiful solid science. I successfully completed the course, and passed my final exam. Michael helped me not just to grasp the knowledge I need, but to survive that tough time. I strongly recommend Michael G. as a statistics tutor because Michael is responsible and reliable. He always responded to my emails and texts within a few minutes. Michael is flexible and cooperative - he always gave me enough options to chose a convenient time for the next meeting, and Michael is knowledgeable and experienced. He used a broad variety of approaches to help me comprehend materials and important concepts. Michael also has a great sense of knowing what needs to be reviewed in order for his students to get to next level.

Extremely talented tutor. Michael gives my daughter the right amount of encouragement along with instruction on how to work her math problems. Very good at scoping the approach to help my daughter learn. Quick response and very accessible communications for scheduling. We love him! My daughter's confidence is soaring!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

As an instructor in the department of math, University of Portland, I specialize in teaching statistics, as well as pre-calculus and calculus. I greatly enjoy working with students 1-on-1, and bring a life-long love of math to my tutoring. 25+ years of programming and engineering in the computer industry adds a solid practical approach to my tutoring.

I use R in my own machine learning and statistics research, and some of the results are taken to the classroom at the University of Portland for instruction. I will be happy to submit examples of my R programming, as needed.
