## Excellent tutor. My son went from C to A

Natalia, 30 lessons with MichaelMichael has been tutoring my son in chemistry and geometry. he is knowledgeable and excellent. We had few lessons in person and several more online, which works well since we are about 30 miles apart. My son went from grades C to A in both chemistry and geometry. Highly recommend this tutor!

Hi I'm Mike. I was a high school math (geometry) and science (mostly chemistry but also physics) teacher for ten years, and enjoyed it very much. I especially enjoyed interacting with my students with humor and kindness and teaching them subjects that I found very interesting and trying to make them interested in and knowledgeable about the subject being taught. I put a lot of thought into how best to explain what I was teaching. After leaving teaching I had a variety of jobs that always...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Experience: taught high school geometry for one year and science for ten years, so experienced teacher, including some experience teaching math, though not algebra; used mathematics routinely in rest of professional career. Academic: have taken a lot of math and related classes that go way beyond algebra 1, but require algebra familiarity, including honors calculus at the UofO and multiple statistics classes at Stanford and UC Berkeley.

#### Algebra 2

I taught high school geometry for one year and science for ten years, so experienced teacher, including some experience teaching math, though not algebra; used mathematics routinely in rest of professional career. Academic: have taken a lot of math and related classes that go well beyond algebra 2, but require algebra 2 familiarity, including honors calculus at the UofO and multiple statistics classes at Stanford and UC Berkeley.

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

Experience: taught high school chemistry for ten years, and also taught advanced chemistry for three of those years. Academic: bachelors degree UofO in general science emphasizing chemistry and biology, masters degree MIT in biology emphasizing biochemistry, two years graduate course work at Stanford emphasizing science education.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

Experience: taught high school geometry for one year and science for ten years, so experienced teacher, including geometry; used mathematics routinely in rest of professional career. Academic: undergraduate honors calculus at the UofO, graduate school statistics classes at Stanford and UC Berkeley, and a number of classes for which higher mathematics was not the primary subject but was an essential tool used in the class.

Prealgebra
#### Prealgebra

Experience: taught high school geometry for one year and science for ten years, so experienced teacher, including some experience teaching math, though not pre-algebra; used mathematics routinely in rest of professional career. Academic: have taken a lot of math and related classes that go way beyond algebra, but require algebra familiarity. So I know pre-algebra thoroughly, but just as important, I love math and I love teaching math at any level. I aim to bring out both mastery and appreciation of math at the relevant level in those that I tutor.

Trigonometry
#### Trigonometry

I taught high school geometry for one year and science for ten years, so experienced teacher, including some experience teaching math, though not trigonometry; used mathematics routinely in rest of professional career. Academic: have taken a lot of math and related classes more advanced than high school trigonometry, including honors calculus at the UofO and multiple statistics classes at Stanford and UC Berkeley. Many of these classes used trigonometric functions.
Fun fact: I used my knowledge of trigonometric functions, probability, and simulation to create a very realistic video of a fluttering candle flame. One would assume that they were seeing a loop, but it would in fact never exactly repeat no matter how long one watched it.

If you are worried about passing the math portion of the GED exam or have been unable to do so, I would like to help you with that. I have been particularly interested in helping people with the math portion for a long time. This is out of sympathy and compassion for those who can through hard work pass all of the other subjects, but no matter how hard they try they just don’t get the math. Passing the GED could be life-changing for those people, and I want to help make that happen.

## He's Been Great

My son seems to be able to understand Michael's teaching method, he appears to know his stuff and everything has been going well. I plan on using him for quite a while longer.

## IB Math

We had the pleasure of having Mike help tutor our student in IB Math. This was the first visit and it went very well. We have plans to continue to use Mike's services. Mike was able to help our student understand math concepts she was having difficulty with. Mike was calm, listened and showed our student the proper way to do the math problems she was having issues with.

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Michael went above and beyond to try to help me understand molar conversions. He was patient and was able to get me closer to where I need to be in order to be successful in my Honors Chemistry class. I will definitely continue working with him and strongly recommend anyone struggling in Chemistry to get him as a tutor.

## Good teacher, very patient

Michael was very prompt in getting back to our initial request and was super accommodating to our ‘urgent need’ request. He asked what my daughter was working on in class and did some background work prior to their meeting to be very prepared for their lesson.
