Bio

I've had a knack for physics and math ever since I first started learning them in school. I've always found them fascinating and love to share my understanding of them to anyone who will listen! Through high school and college I enjoyed helping my friends and peers study and do homework and I decided to teach laboratories for my school's physics department as well as private tutoring. I've continued tutoring ever since, finding it to be my passion in life.

I've had a knack for physics and math ever since I first started learning them in school. I've always found them fascinating and love to share my understanding of them to anyone who will listen! Through high school and college I enjoyed helping my friends and peers study and do homework and I decided to teach laboratories for my school's physics department as well as private tutoring. I've continued tutoring ever since, finding it to be my passion in life.

In high school I earned awards and accolades for math and physics through club competitions and I taught myself AP Calculus BC as well as AP Physics C. I scored 5's and a 4 on my exams and Graduated with honors. In college I dual-majored in mathematics and physics with an astronomy minor. I was nominated president of our local chapter of the Sigma-Pi-Sigma Physics Honors Society and I graduated with honors.

I have excelled at mathematics since elementary school, as I've always been a "numbers guy". I scored 5 on both AP Calculus Exams and have experience over the better half of the last decade teaching people math from middle school algebra to college-level linear algebra, as well as every level of calculus. I make use of online learning sources and graphing resources to show the intuitive side of mathematics.

I started learning physics from my enthusiastic high school teacher whose motivation was not just test scores, but showing us how to truly understand and appreciate the intricacies and beauty of nature. With that understanding and the mathematical background to support it, success in physics follows effortlessly. My goal is to follow in his footsteps and show students how equations are not just formulas to be memorized, but blueprints for the universe that we can grasp.

My teaching style is based on encouragement, motivation, and a mutual understanding of the student's academic needs. If you're as willing to learn as I am to teach, then we will work well together.

Patient and very helpful!

Michael was fantastic explaining AP Physics concepts clearly and patiently! He knew the material very well and shared concepts in a way that was understandable. Highly recommended!

Kelly, 2 lessons with Michael

Very good tutor

Michael has taught me many useful concepts on Calculus. He is an excellent tutor. I would recommend him to many other students. He clarified the topics very well.

Mehul, 9 lessons with Michael

Excellent tutor and very knowledgeable!

He taught me some AP Calculus topics on Limits. He was very patient and nicely explained everything to me. I was very happy with him. I will recommend him to anyone. I felt comfortable after doing a lesson with him.

Debjani, 1 lesson with Michael

Lots of Patience and Thorough

I will continue to use Michael as he doesn't care that I am starting very fresh in Physics. He is very timely and kind, and is always willing to reach out to you to answer questions. From my understanding, he has a vast skill set that allows him to adapt to greenhorns like myself, along with further experienced physics students. I will be clocking more time with Michael, most likely for semesters to come.

Nathan, 9 lessons with Michael

Great fit and knowledgeable about Pre-calc

Michael was patient and quick to help solve pre-calc problems for my daughter. He works at the right pace. My daughter enjoyed working with Michael and looks forward to further sessions. We are thankful for the help with algebra and pre-calc homework and prep for tests.

Mackenzie, 16 lessons with Michael

Knowledgeable, patient and great at explaining concepts!

Michael is an amazing tutor! He taught my son very high level physics concepts and was able to make the material much easier to understand. He was very clear in his communication and in his teaching and is definitely an expert in his field. Highly recommend!

Camden, 2 lessons with Michael

Very patient and thorough!

Not only did he help me work through a variety of physics questions but he went even further as to work through the derivations of equations which helped me really solidify my understanding of the concepts!

Parin, 13 lessons with Michael

Great tutor!

Michael graciously helped my son out in physics when I called him at the last minute. Kind, patient and thorough in his instruction. Definitely will call again! Highly recommend.

Maria, 1 lesson with Michael

Helped me with Linear Algebra and Matrix Method

I would highly recommend anyone who is struggling in Linear Algebra to hire Michael as a Tutor because he understands every part of it. The price per hour was pretty reasonable too.

Sourav, 13 lessons with Michael

great teacher!

Very helpful and patient when I did not know how to answer the questions! I would recommend and plan to reach out him in the future when I need more help!
