About Michael


Bio

I am currently a second-year undergraduate student studying Chemical Engineering at UT Austin. Throughout high school and college, I was always heavily interested in STEM fields, particularly in math and chemistry. In high school, I achieved a 4.0 unweighted GPA and have received a 5 on nine STEM-related AP tests, including Chemistry and Calculus BC. At UT I currently have a 4.0 GPA and have taken both General and Organic Chemistry.

I am currently a second-year undergraduate student studying Chemical Engineering at UT Austin. Throughout high school and college, I was always heavily interested in STEM fields, particularly in math and chemistry. In high school, I achieved a 4.0 unweighted GPA and have received a 5 on nine STEM-related AP tests, including Chemistry and Calculus BC. At UT I currently have a 4.0 GPA and have taken both General and Organic Chemistry.

I have tutored my peers in high school as a part of my school's Math and Science teams, and I have tutored elementary school students as part of a local tutoring group. To me, the most rewarding parts of tutoring are seeing the students' "aha!" moment and the successes that follow. I like to break down complicated topics into simple and concise explanations, and I will always make sure to help the student to understand "how?" and "why?". Above all, I will always provide a friendly and inviting environment to nurture academic growth and success.

I have always excelled in math, both in school courses and in competitions. I have earned A's in all of my math classes, received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam, and have won state math competitions. In high school, I tutored my peers through the school Math team, and both their grades and competition scores improved. I have also taken Calculus 2 at UT recently. I have a deep understanding of both algebra and calculus.

I have taken 3 years of chemistry in high school and 2 semesters of chemistry in college, covering topics in both General and Organic Chemistry. I also received a 5 on the AP Chemistry exam and received Honors on the US National Chemistry Olympiad. I have a firm grasp of the material in such a widely-encompassing subject. I am able to take complicated and confusing chemistry topics and break them down into fundamentals to help the student gain a better understanding of any topic.

I am flexible, patient, and eager to teach because I wish to help students develop a deeper understanding of math and chemistry and foster a

Trigonometry

My daughter is very pleased with Michael’s teaching. She asked me why I didn’t get him to help from the beginning of the lessons. I’m sure that he will continue to help my daughter in the next grade. Thanks again, for a job well done!

AP Chem Tutoring

Michael explains things thoroughly and gives helpful examples. He also has good pacing so that the topics are not explained to quickly or too slowly. I would recommend him as a tutor.
