I am an experienced professional with a successful record of going above and beyond to help students be successful. I have had more than 10 years of experience in teaching and/or tutoring Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics of all levels from 9th grade to AP and college classes, both in the lab and classroom. I have an exceptional ability to work with parents and students to facilitate learning, growth and development. In addition to math and science I am passionate about the humanities and also tutor subjects including English, writing, history, social studies, bible studies and more. Please see my profile for a complete list.
I have a strong passion for helping students succeed. Recognizing that every student is different, I study my students to see how they best learn and understand information. I then use the strategies that are most in harmony with their natural learning style to facilitate deep and meaningful learning and retention of that learning.

Michael is an answer to my prayers. He is able to take a difficult subject matter and explain it in a way that makes it make sense. Also, we love the option of online tutoring. Not only is my daughter able to get valuable help now, but also will be able to continue her Organic Chemistry II sessions when she goes back to college next week. Awesome!
Michael tutors my 2 daughters (10 & 11 graders) once a week. My daughters said Michael is very knowledgeable and knows how to teach. He made my daughters more confident and enjoy the subjects taught. Thank you Michael.
My son has been working consistently with Michael for over a year and a half. Michael has successfully tutored him for H.S. Algebra I & II; Chemistry I & II; as well as Physics I & II. I am very pleased with Michael's ability to identify areas where my son was lacking in foundation information and gaps in his curriculum. These gaps were prohibiting my son making A's and B's and being able to be successful in his daily class assignments. Once these areas were identified; my son and Michael worked on reviewing fundamentals and getting caught up with the everyday lessons and course material. My sons GPA in these classes has consistently improved since he started tutoring with Michael. My son is now making all A's and occasional B's in these courses and continues to improve. Michael has been an instrumental part of my sons overall comprehension of these subjects; and feeling positive and confident about his abilities to be successful in school. Michael is also very patient, honest and has a genuine concern for the education and success of students.
Thank you very much Michael!
I'm thankful for meeting Micheal; he came through after another tutor had not responded after 2.5 days. He is patient with me and direct. I'm grateful he took the time to meet with me. I must also thank his wife, for inconveniencing her time with him. My thanks to both of them. Oh, I need to tell you, I much improved in my radiology class.
I have a son who needed tutoring and also to learn study skills. Micheal did an excellent job at both. He was also very accommodating of schedules. He genuinely cared about my son's success. I would highly recommend Micheal for any tutoring needs.
Michael is a very caring person who explains things in ways that I easily understand and he adapts his methods to how I learn. I could not be more pleased.
Michael did a great job with my daughter, teaching her math & science! He really makes you understand it clearly! She graduated and got a scholarship!!!
My daughter was close to failing pre-cal, after 2 tutoring sessions with Michael she made a 91 on her next test. Michael is an excellent tutor, and my daughter feels comfortable working with him. Nice, professional and tries very hard to fit with your schedule!
Michael has done more than simply teaching. My daughter does very well on her homework but not on her tests. Michael analyzes how she works on problems during tutoring and has made suggestions that I believe will help her greatly. This is still a work in progress, but we truly appreciate Michael's insight and the fact that he is interested in helping with the basic issue, not just this week's chapter questions.
Michael was very patient with me. I have some anxiety issues that he worked with me on. If he can help me get through a math class, he can help anyone.
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.
I am certified to work with students who have Autism Spectrum Disorders, which includes autism, Aspergers, and other associated learning disabilities. I have worked with such students in an inclusion environment where the students have been in normal classrooms. Use of visual and graphic organizers, structuring spaces, and helping the students to develop clear organizational frameworks are key to helping them to adjust to a normal class situation.
I've taken multiple theology classes in college, including "Understanding the Bible". I have also read and studied scripture extensively with small groups and independently.

I have read a number of biblical commentaries and exegesis works from the Fathers of the Church and other sources. Studying, understanding, and living the Word of God is my primary focus and purpose in life.

My father has taught me the art of making breads and cooking. He is a professional cook and baker, who has also worked as a pastry chef. I have developed some absolutely unique and original recipes in the Italian food genre. My specialty is in baking and Italian cuisine.

I was a pre-med student for a while before I switched to teaching. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a chemistry degree. I have mastery over the fields of chemistry, organic chemistry, and writing. I also have a strong background in physics (a minor in my degree). I have personally assisted a number of students preparing for the MCAT improve their scores.
I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. I've gotten A's for both semesters of Organic Chemistry and scored in the 95th percentile on the ACS standardized examination in Organic Chemistry. I also was a tutor and lab assistant in college for 2 years at the University of Dallas.
I am a certified Texas teacher in Chemistry, Physics, and Math. I have led TAKS review sessions, engaged in highly successful TAKS tutoring one on one with struggling students. At the school where I taught, we achieved some of the highest results in the state, being one of the upper tier Exemplary schools. I have also collaborated with other teachers and administrators to develop strategies to help students raise scores on the TAKS.
I have played, coached, and refereed in various leagues for about 8 years. I have studied the mechanics of the game, the physics of ball control, and tactics and strategies of the game. I specialize with the basics, assisting students of the game in developing greater ball control in bumping and setting and better power and positioning in spiking.
