About Mike

I am a career changer and 12 years ago I went into education because I felt that I had something to give to students that they would find useful. I've spent the last 10 years teaching middle grade students in Math and Science. My students were very successful on the state PSSA tests by increasing their level of proficiency by some 20 to 25%. While I haven't as yet done much one on one tutoring, I did spend a great deal of time with my students in one on one situations. I have been lucky enough to have a large number of students return to see me after they graduated to tell me how well they are performing in high school do to what they had learned in my classroom. In addition to being a middle grades teacher, I am also fully certified in all K-6 subject areas. I have recently retired and I am looking to continue my career as an educator by working with small groups or in one on one settings where I feel that I have the ability and personality to successfully relate to students. Since I had changed careers, I have the ability to relate their schoolwork to what goes on in the real world and why they are important skills for the students to learn.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I am Pa. certified to teach middle years Math (7-9). I am recently retired but I spent the last 10 years teaching 7th & 8th grade mathematics which included a great deal of pre-algebra and Algebra 1.

American History

I am Pa. certified to teach all subjects in grades k-6. I have an additional certification in middle years Social Studies which includes American History. I have recently retired but I have spent 5 years as a Social Studies or History teacher.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a career changer and after spending 30 plus years in the working world I felt that I had acquired a large amount of information that I could relate to students and show them how they will use certain skills and knowledge
in their daily .

I am Pa. certified in teaching K-6 grades and at the beginning of my teaching career I've taught first and forth grade. I have additional credentials in Math and Social Studies and in my later years I have taught science and language arts. I have the academic credentials and experience in the classroom that when taken together with my real world experience allows me to relate subject matter on multiple levels. I have recently retired from the active classroom but I think I can work very successfully in a one on one situation as I have done so many times before and after school during my teaching career.

Elementary Math

I am a recently retired certified teacher. I am certified to teach grades K-6 in all subject areas. I also have an additional certification in middle years math. Math is the area of my greatest expertise and I feel that makes me highly qualified to tutor elementary mathematics.

Social Studies

I am Pennsylvania state certified to teach middle years Social Studies and I have done so for 5 years. I am also Pennsylvania certified to teach all elementary grades including Social Studies.
