I am a former tenured professor (15 years) at a major university. Having been around students for 15 years, I relate very well to them .

As part of the tenure process, superior teaching evaluations from students are required. Mine were consistently in the top 10 percent.

My primary area of expertise is …

My son is in 10th grade PAP Chemistry and it is unfortunate that his high school teacher, although brilliant, is unable to get the message across to the students, as evident by most of the students failing the class. Michael, my sons tutor explains Chemistry in a simple fashion and my son is able to understand what he had failed to understand from his high school teacher. My sons grades have improved because of our tutor!

The AP Biology session went very well. He was extremely knowledgeable. She is looking forward to to continuing weekly sessions throughout this school year. He even had to wait, because I had gone to the wrong location. Thank you Michael.

Very patient and my children understood his method of tutoring.

Geometry - we spent the time going over midpoints, bisectors, properties of circles and polygons.

Precalculus - spent time finding inverse of functions, whether they were increasing or decreasing over a particular interval and translations of functions.

He comes prepared and ready to work. He is patient, flexible, and works around my daughters busy schedule. She is very comfortable working with him.

To give my son more practice in his GRE exam, he gave him questions to do on his own until their next meeting. Very responsive to student's needs! I really appreciate that! Thanks Michael!

He met me at McDonald's with the snow coming down. I won't be a math genius but I will pass. He is so patient.

Our son (7th grade) can be pretty picky about teachers, like most Jr. Highers! After our first session, all he could say was how much he liked Michael, how good Michael was at math, and how he looked forward to their next session! What 7th grade boy looks forward to a tutoring session?! Our biggest challenge is getting our son excited about learning math and performing to the best of his ability. I have no doubt that this is the tutor we need.

My son was struggling with chemistry. After a month of tutoring with Michael he went from a D to A. Michael is an awesome teacher/tutor! Best money I ever spent!

Our young man was in desperate need of some extra help with the ASVAB. He is very happy with the instructor and they mesh together very well! I can see the confidence in him growing. 3 weeks to go before test time. I know he'll be ready! Wonderful service with our tutor and WyzAnt.

I am very happy to recommend Mr. Michael H. Michael has been tutoring my son in pre-calculus and after a couple of days of tutoring, my son was able to score a 91 on his final exam. Thank you very much Michael!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

My mathematical background includes algebra, geometry, trigonometry, 3 semesters of calculus, differential equations and linear algebra. In addition, my research required that I use my math skills on a daily basis to analyze data and design experiments.

I have tutored a number of junior high and high school students in the past, primarily in algebra and geometry.

Mathematics is a game. If you don't know the rules, you can't play the game. My goal is to make sure you understand the rules.

Algebra 2 can be a challenge for many students. Often the problems are due to not having mastered the material in Algebra 1 and then having forgotten much of what they did learn when taking geometry.

My mathematical background includes algebra, geometry, trigonometry, 3 semesters of calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and a year of statistics. In addition, my research required that I use my math skills on a daily basis to analyze data and design experiments.

I am also very good at explaining why algebra is relevant to the real world.

Mathematics is a game. If you don't know the rules, you can't play the game. My goal is to make sure you understand the rules.

I make biology exciting and relevant for my students.

I have a Ph.D in biochemistry. I have taught cell biology to undergraduates at a major university.

My research has required an understanding of biology at the molecular level (DNA sequencing, enzymology), the cellular level (cell culture, electron microscopy) and at the animal level (electrophysiology, muscle physiology and retinal prosthesis studies).

In addition, I have kept up with the latest advances in the field. I teach my students the fundamentals, but will also keep them up to date regarding new research in biology

Biology is truly exciting. Let me convince you of that.

My chemistry background includes three semesters of general and inorganic chemistry, three semesters of organic chemistry, two semesters of physical chemistry, and three semesters of biochemistry as an undergrad. In addition, I completed ten semesters of graduate level biochemistry courses leading to a Ph.D. My research for the past 20 years has used chemistry almost every day. I can not only teach chemistry, I can make it relevant and exciting to my students because I understand how chemistry is used in biomedical research.

As a tenured professor at Oakland University, Rochester, MI, I was an advisor for over seventy undergraduate students. I was also advisor to twelve graduate students. I believe my experience as an undergraduate advisor along with fifteen years on a university faculty qualifies me to be a college counseling tutor.

I have spent a good part of my research career doing genetics/molecular biology. I have published several papers on the genetics of an inherited eye disease. I feel I am more than qualified to tutor students in genetics. Publications and work samples are available upon request.

Congruent triangles are one of the most important parts of geometry. I can make sure you thoroughly understand them. You will encounter them again later in the course when dealing with other structures such as parallelograms, trapezoids and circles.

I will also ensure that you become proficient in completing the "dreaded proofs". They are not difficult once you "learn the rules".

Mathematics, especially geometry, is a game. If you don't know the rules, you can't play the game. My goal is to make sure you understand the rules.

My mathematical background includes algebra, geometry, trigonometry, 3 semesters of calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, and a year of statistics. In addition, my research required that I use my math skills on a daily basis to analyze data and design experiments.

I have been tutoring Chemistry, Physics Biology, Physiology and Organic Chemistry. I have a Ph.D in Biochemistry.

I also have 25 years experience in the biomedical field. I was on the Medical school selection committee (4 years), the Ophthalmology residency selection committee (8 years) and the Vitreoretinal Fellowship selection committee (10 years) at a major university. This means that I have reviewed a lot of applications, and know what a successful application looks like. In addition, I had five undergraduate students working in my laboratory who applied to Medical School. Four out of five were accepted, the other one went on to get a Ph.D in Neuroscience.

I have both a BS and Ph.D in Biochemistry from Iowa State University. As an undergraduate, I completed four semesters of organic chemistry. In addition I completed three additional organic chemistry classes as part of my Ph.D. program. I have tutored several students in organic chemistry while I was a graduate student and during my academic career. I feel my background more than qualifies me to tutor undergraduates in organic chemistry.

I have spent over twenty years doing pharmacology as part of my research career. I also taught a graduate level pharmacology class at Oakland University for several years. In addition, I have published book chapters and peer-reviewed papers on the subject. These are available upon request.

I feel I an very qualified to tutor students in pharmacology.

My physics background includes 3 semesters of college physics with calculus, two semesters of graduate level biophysics and three semesters of physical chemistry (thermodynamics, quantum mechanics and statistical thermodynamics). In addition, my research projects have included development of a retinal prosthesis (chip) to restore vision in blind individuals and development of a wide variety of lenses for implantation after cataract surgery. I have used physics as part of my research for over 20 years.

My mathematical background includes algebra, geometry, trigonometry, 3 semesters of calculus, differential equations and linear algebra. In addition, my research required that I use my math skills on a daily basis to analyze data and design experiments.

I have tutored a number of junior high and high school students in the past, primarily in algebra, geometry, trigonometry and precalculus (vectors, matrices, functions, limits).

If we spend time together, you will be prepared to succeed in calculus.

Mathematics is a game. If you don't know the rules, you can't play the game. My goal is to make sure you understand the rules.

I studied Russian for four years as an undergraduate. More recently, I completed Rosetta Stone Russian Levels 1-5 to brush up on my skills. I have tutored several students at the University of North Texas in Russian over the past couple of years. I feel I am more than qualified to tutor first and second year students at this time.

I have a Ph.D. in biochemistry. In the process of doing earning that degree, I learned a lot about effective study skills. In addition, I taught at a major university for 15 years. I have tutored over 500 hours in the past two months. I am presently qualified to tutor 42 subjects. I am totally confident that I can pass on what I have learned about successful study skills to my students to improve their academic performance.

I am an accomplished writer. I have authored ten book chapters, over 100 scientific papers, numerous research grants, patent applications, along with a multitude of project reports. I have also served as an associate editor for a major scientific journal.

I can pass what I have learned on to you.
