I am a certified secondary math teacher (State of Texas) who also had a long, successful career in business administration with an emphasis on finance and accounting. I have been the coach of my High School's UIL accounting team, which won its District meet, and I have had over a decade's experience in tutoring students for the SAT, the PSAT, ACT, TAKS and STAAR in all sections of those tests. As a grandfather, with 6 grandchildren, I have a great deal of experience and patience in dealing with young people. As an individual who ran businesses with over 4000 employees, I have experience dealing with adults of all types, as well as customers with many needs. I have had experience tutoring adults in a variety of subjects including the previously mentioned academic subjects, as well as World and US History, Politics and Government, public speaking and writing. During my business career, I was a guest instructor at several universities in the United States and Europe and I am the author (or co-author) of two technical books in healthcare administration, as well as numerous published magazine and journal articles in a variety of subjects.
I am a careful listener and I vary my techniques to match the needs of my students. I do not believe that "one size fits all"; however, I do believe that capability can increase by exercising the mind. No student should ever believe that their future is limited by the past.
Don't Pass This Tutor UP!
My first meeting with Mr. Michael D. was wonderful. He is truly God sent and wished I had met him before my first financial accounting exam. I had so much difficulty understanding how to post journal entries, along with comprehending depreciation and what that meant in business terms. For some reason a light bulb clicked on as Mr. D. began to explain and provide examples. He didn't make me feel dumb or stupid. He took the time to break the material down until I understood what I had read and studied in my textbook. I was feeling really defeated before I met with Mr. D. but walked away feeling confident in myself and my ability to do well in my course. I believe Mr. D. is going to be an excellent resource as I venture into other accounting courses and statistics. He is extremely kind and sensitive to the needs of the student. He is patient and really seems to care that you succeed in the course. Truly he is not in the tutoring business for money but loves what he does and wants to help the student excel in their area of interest. Don't pass this tutor up!Erica, 17 lessons with Michael
Mr. Michael discovers and brings out the good in students.

I'm quite picky about most things but very pleased with Michael!
I love that Michael never gets frustrated even when I myself already feel I should have grasped something. Instead, he re-explains it another way and or gives another explanation until he sees in my eyes that I've had the "light-bulb" moment before moving on. Michael learned my learning style early on in our meetings; he is very practical, patient and quick to modify his approach when deemed necessary.Daniel, 4 lessons with Michael
Very knowledgeable Math tutor
Very knowledgeable in Geometry. I believe Michael's main goal is to make sure his students walk away with a thorough understanding of the subject. Spent a great deal of time helping my daughter today and I'd recommend him to anyone needing some extra help in math.Melissa, 3 lessons with Michael

Mr. Dunn is helping my son with the SAT math and writing portion. We see him weekly.... Kind, patient, always in a good mood....My son was so skeptical about getting a tutor, but he is seeing how much it is helping. I would highly recommend him.Karen, 29 lessons with Michael
Statement of cash flow, ratios, balance sheet, non cash activites and various of other things. Too much to type on this review but he is amazing I would highly recommend him to anyone!Kellye, 5 lessons with Michael
Very patient & took his time with my son!! Michael explained Geometry so that my son can understand him. He took his time with my son & wasn't rushing him!Wanda, 1 lesson with Michael
Patient and smart!
My son has struggled in school for a while. I had a previous tutor on here for two subjects, but I noticed he was still struggling in comprehension. I contacted Mr. D. and he got right back to me. According to my son he is like a human Google. Very smart, knows a lot of stuff, and very patient. My son comes home telling me things about history that Mr. Dunn has talked to him about. He told me that he really feels like it's helping him. He is always very honest about this as we have had to change tutors before because he didn't learn from them. I always wait until we are a few tutoring lessons in before I review, I can honestly say that we recommend Mr. D.!Nyree, 65 lessons with Michael
Michael simplified the material so much and when I finally understood one topic, it sparked my interest in learning more and to just keep going. He encourages me to not give up and to be patient with my own learning process.Shaza, 15 lessons with Michael
