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.
Michael is a great tutor and has put a plan of action for my son in preparing for the SAT exam. I was very impressed with how prepared he was for the session and with his strategic plan to meet my son's testing goal.Denese, 2 lessons with Michael
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
He taught my child biology. He was funny and great as per my child and they where extremely productive. He is very professional, courteous and kind. My child is excited with her new found way of studying for her exams and can't wait to utilize these strategies taught. Thank you Michael.Maria , 1 lesson with Michael

Very patient and Great tutor!
Michael is a great tutor and is very knowledgeable, articulate and organized. He tutored my son in Algebra. My son did not want to go to school because he was struggling in Algebra. After my son's first session with Michael, he had a much more positive attitude about getting better with his Algebra. Michael and I discussed how each session went and what needed to be completed at the next one. He arrived for each session prepared with relevant materials and lesson plans. He is able to simplify and organize the material which helped my son feel comfortable, competent and confident. We are so happy that Michael worked with us and will not hesitate to call him for tutoring, if needed in the future. Best tutor!!!Rhonda, 13 lessons with Michael
Great tutoring sessions!!
I am getting ready for "The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery" (ASVAB) and so far I've learn in two sessions what I haven't been able to learn in years. Mike S has a way to teach each person differently. I've always had problems with anything that has to do with numbers and now that I want to join the Navy I really need to get good at it to be able to score 80% or more and be able to chose the MOS I want. I've been tutored before and it didn't work, I was starting to think that I would have to settle for any MOS (job) in the military because I would never get good enough at math, arithmetic reasoning and algebra but Mr S has a very peculiar way of teaching you and it really works. He understands 100% that we all learn in different ways and at different pace and he makes sure he doesn't leave until you understand it. I strongly recommend you to take tutoring sessions with him specially if you have ADD/ADHD. He is very professional, always on time and a very understanding person.Saskea, 4 lessons with Michael
Did a great job at getting my son engaged
We have only had one session with Micheal, but my son earned a "A" on his Algebra test the day after the first session. We are excited to have Micheal as a tutor.Barbara, 5 lessons with Michael
Very efficient and dedicated to excellence!
I feel very blessed to have found Mike! Not only is he a great math tutor but he is also helping to build my son's "math confidence". Always shows up on time and ready to work!Rochelle, 14 lessons with Michael
