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.
Very Wise and Intelligent Tutor
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!Natalee, 10 lessons with Michael
Very Knowledgeable and informative.
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.Jay, 11 lessons with Michael
The Thankful Acquaintance
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.Darrell, 6 lessons with Michael
Went above and beyond what was expected
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.Ronald, 9 lessons with Michael
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.Sara, 17 lessons with Michael
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!!!Bonnie, 8 lessons with Michael
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!Karen, 12 lessons with Michael
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!Pam, 18 lessons with Michael
Goes beyond simply teaching the current material
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.Sandra, 24 lessons with Michael
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.Amber, 10 lessons with Michael
