About Michael

I enjoy tutoring because I enjoy helping people. With a full-time career in the health industry as a Registered Dietitian, I have devoted my life to helping others, and I view tutoring as another outlet for this. I've previously tutored middle and high school aged children in the Rock Hill area while in graduate school and look forward to continuing here in Columbia, SC.

My philosophy for tutoring is not simply to get the student through their class, but to help them have a true understanding of the material so they can succeed at the next level where they need to build upon that material. Due to this, I spend time reviewing not just current course work, but other foundational areas that I feel the student is struggling in and possibly preventing them from fully grasping their current material. For example, often times a student struggles in algebra because they did not fully understand all of the concepts taught in pre-algebra the year before.

As a registered dietitian I am federally recognized as an expert in nutrition. With a B.S. in Exercise Science from the University of South Carolina and a Master's degree in Human Nutrition from Winthrop University, I have been required to master a wide variety of science and math related subjects ranging from chemistry and anatomy, to algebra and college statistics. Not only have I studied these subjects at an academic level, but now I apply them everyday in my career. This allows me to provide students with concrete examples of how they may actually use this knowledge in their futures.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

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.
