Hey, I'm Mike and I really enjoy teaching and working with children. I love the moment for children when the "lightbulb" goes on and something that was once challenging becomes something that is understood and attainable. I believe that a child's self esteem and overall confidence are intricately tied into his or her feelings of academic success, but when learning becomes a challenge, a child's self-confidence deteriorates quickly. During my 16 years of teaching and tutoring elementary students, I have found that my personal creativity, energy, excitement and patience have helped motivate students about learning, even when the material is challenging and difficult to understand. I have taught all academic subjects in grades 1-5, however I have taught 5th grade math exclusively for 6 years and am currently a math interventionist. I look forward to helping your child to find success again. Hey, I'm Mike and I really enjoy teaching and working with children.

Thanks to Mr. Mike, my son's math grade has improved to a solid A-
His confidence has sky rocketed and he is very happy.
Thank you Mike.
My daughter's math teacher just wrote me an email yesterday where she mentioned an increase in confidence with my student. The classroom teacher mentioned that my daughter is raising her hand more to ask and answer questions during class time. She is pleased with this increase in participation; it shows growth.
Personally, I think most of that growth is the result of Mr. B's tutoring. A person outside of our family telling her that she is smart and capable has done wonders for her. Thank you so much already, Mr. B. You have only met with her for 2 weeks, but already the results are amazing!
Mr. B is so strategic about complimenting Belen's efforts and problem solving techniques. He never over-compliments, but always uses professional pedagogical methods to increase my daughter's knowledge of her capabilities!
Mike is extremely patient with my boys. His enthusiasm keeps them engaged in the lesson. He utilizes multiple tools to reinforce his instruction. Mike also gives the parents great suggestions on how to help with lessons at home. He's not afraid to tell you when he's unsure of your question, but always lets you know he will find the answer you seek. Mike is dependable and responds to communication via text or email very quickly. Very pleased!!
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.
