About Michael

Hi! I'm currently a graduate student pursuing my Master's degree in structural geology at UT Arlington. Prior to relocating to Texas, I obtained my BA in geological sciences and mathematics at the State University of New York at Geneseo.
During my undergrad, I had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for several geology labs, including the university's introduction to geology for non-majors and higher level courses including structural geology and geomorphology. I was also hired as a supplementary instructor by the university during my senior year for igneous and metamorphic petrology. As a supplementary instructor, I worked with the course professor to introduce difficult material and help students understand any difficult concepts, both in a classroom setting and individually in office hours. My undergraduate research and honors thesis involved a significant background in physics and I took four semesters of college physics in addition to geology and mathematics courses.

I've found through my experience that I try to work with my students and break difficult topics into more manageable parts before tackling the bigger problems. I work to ensure a full understanding of the basics and then reinforce the material through various applications and example problems.

My favorite part of tutoring is seeing a student's smile and face light up when a difficult concept or idea finally clicks for them!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Prior to studying geology in my undergrad, I was a mathematics major with a secondary education focus. My course observation hours were completed under a high school algebra teacher during this time.

Chemistry

My education in geology has included multiple courses in the field of environmental science, many of which had a major focus on chemistry. Additionally, I was a supplementary instructor for a geology course which focused primarily on applying chemistry to geology.

Geology

I recently completed my Bachelor's degree in the geological sciences and am currently pursuing my Master's degree in structural geology. During my undergraduate, I had the opportunity to work as both a teaching assistant and a supplementary instructor for several introductory and higher level geology classes, including a non-majors general education science course, geomorphology, structural geology, and igneous and metamorphic petrology. In these roles, I often met one-on-one with students having difficulty understanding the material and have found many ways to try and make geology easier!

MATLAB

During my undergraduate I was required to take two basic courses in MATLAB programming in the mathematics department. Since taking these courses, a large portion of both my undergraduate and now graduate research projects have required me to develop numerical models using MATLAB.

Physical Science

As part of my undergraduate coursework, I was required to take courses in a variety of science fields including physical science. Much of the information learned in these classes is useful throughout the study of geology.

Physics

A significant portion of my undergraduate and graduate geology research has required the application of physics. I primarily study the effects of forces, stress, and strain on rock deformation, and in the past have worked to model spring behavior, and apply electromagnetic theory to our studies of igneous intrusive bodies.
