About Michael

Hi, I am Mike. I am a results-oriented and compassionate teacher with 7 years of experience in Algebra 1 & 2. I have a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and am a thesis shy of a master’s degree in electrical engineering with 9 years of experience in engineering and project management. My journey toward education started with my calculus professor in college who impacted and inspired me to develop a passion for mathematics; this passion compelled me to take a sabbatical from engineering for 7 years, to share and inspire young minds to develop that same passion for mathematics and learning in general.

I specialize in tutoring Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Biology, Anatomy, and Organic Chemistry for success in high school and SAT, GED, and ASVAB exams. Whether we are translating words into algebraic equations or memorizing 206 bones in an adult human skeleton, one of my objectives for each session is to keep the student challenged, but, not discouraged. I assign challenging homework after each lesson, and provide timely feedback.

I am committed to a high standard and often ask for feedback. I never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my service.

I look forward to hearing from and making a difference in your academic life.

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.

ACT Math

The key to success in the math portion of ACT is knowledge and proper preparation. Having successfully earning A's in all my math classes from middle school to high school and earning A's in Calculus 1, 2, & 3, Advanced Calculus, and Differential Equations 1 & 2, I have the knowledge. Scoring in the 94th percentile on the math portion of the ACT, I can help you. I have a system in successfully passing any standardized tests, such as ACT math.

Algebra 1

I tutor Algebra 1 the most. It is the foundation for all complex mathematics. Mastery in Algebra 1 is the stepping stone for developing a love for mathematics; with confidence and courage, anyone can develop a solid foundation in Algebra 1.

Even if you don't like Algebra, but, need to succeed in math to meet your educational goals, I've developed a systematic approach to learning and mastering this subject.

Algebra 2

I have two years of teaching experience in Algebra 2. It is a challenge for many students to master it. I always tell my students, that, "Algebra 2 is like walking through a mine field; in order for you to make it to the other side, you must follow the footsteps of the someone who made it." I can help you get to the other side and we can celebrate our success together!

Even if you don't like Algebra, but need to succeed in math to meet your educational goals, I've developed a systematic approach to learning and mastering this subject.

Biology

Biology is an exciting subject. It is a foundational class for all biological science classes: botany, zoology, anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, embryology, comparative anatomy, microbiology, virology, and cell biology. Biology require you to memorize high volumes of information in a short period of time. I have a system to help you learn high volumes of information and succeed in taking tests on our first tutoring session. Contact me.

Prealgebra

I've taught and tutored Prealgebra to homeschoolers for one year. During my experience, I've learned to instruct and explain using puzzles, games & fun analogies to explain the concepts of fractions, integers, negative numbers, and such. I make it fun and inspire anyone to develop a love for learning Prealgebra.

SAT Math

The key to success in the math portion of SAT is knowledge and effectively preparing for the standardized multiple choice tests. Having successfully earning A's in all my math classes from middle school to high school and earning A's in Calculus 1, 2, & 3, Advanced Calculus, and Differential Equations 1 & 2, I have the knowledge. Scoring in the 96th percentile on the math portion of the SAT, I can help you. Also, I've developed a system in successfully passing any standardized tests, especially SAT math.
