In recent years, I have conducted private tutoring for clients in the following subjects: GRE (general test), college admissions and internship applications, ACT Science, AP biology, microbiology, and genetics. Tutoring allows me to effectively address students' needs and customize both content delivery and pace of instruction. Regardless of whether I am in the classroom or tutoring students privately, I enjoy seeing learners overcome obstacles and succeed in their endeavors. My tutoring...

In recent years, I have conducted private tutoring for clients in the following subjects: GRE (general test), college admissions and internship applications, ACT Science, AP biology, microbiology, and genetics. Tutoring allows me to effectively address students' needs and customize both content delivery and pace of instruction. Regardless of whether I am in the classroom or tutoring students privately, I enjoy seeing learners overcome obstacles and succeed in their endeavors. My tutoring methods feature active-learning techniques that allow learners to better grasp the material and become more engaged. For example, instead of purely lecturing about mitosis, I utilize student-tutor discussions, online quizzes/activities, visual aids, and sometimes scientific journals to supplement my descriptive explanations of the subject material. When preparing students for standardized assessments, I provide a variety of test-taking strategies and utilize copious practice questions, passages, writing prompts, etc. I also have specific resources for students to utilize on their own time.

I have several years of experience teaching and tutoring a diverse array of learners, but I work most effectively with high school students, undergraduate students, and adult learners. As a full-time university instructor and lab coordinator, I taught various lecture and laboratory courses in general biology, medical microbiology and molecular biology at the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio. In the process, I received excellent student evaluations, and I earned a promotion to assistant professor in January 2021. I also served as an academic advisor to several undergraduates completing the pre-med and pre-physician assistant studies academic tracks.

I am open to working with learners on either a short-term or long-term basis. Online tutoring is preferred. Please contact me via the Wyzant messaging system to inquire more and schedule lessons.

GRE

I have taught several GRE preparatory courses through other tutoring platforms in the last several years. I have tutored several students privately, and each student showed significant improvement (especially in quantitative reasoning and analytical writing). I took the GRE in 2006 and scored in the top 20% in all three areas of the exam.

Quality Tutoring

Michael has a profound knowledge of various aspects of the wet lab. He is meticulous, and that is really valuable for anybody who struggles with understanding or performing molecular laboratory techniques. He possesses skills to pass knowledge on others as well as detect where the issue might be. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs help with recombinant DNA, cell culture, stem cells, etc.

Amazing Tutor

Michael is hands down the best tutor who knows his stuff very well. He's organized, thorough and patient. I learned a lot during my first session with him and definitely coming back for more session! I highly recommend him!
