About Mike

I graduated with a 3.8 GPA from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with a degree in Chemistry. I was one of ten nominees for valedictorian of my graduating college class of 4,000 and inducted into the phi beta kappa college honor society.

I received an "A" in statistics 1 at Wright - Patterson Air Force Base and an "A" in statistics 2 at Northwest Florida State college both while working for the Air Force as a price analyst.

I am available for both in home and online tutoring. I am strictly professional so you can trust me when tutoring your child or yourself in that any conversation will only be related to education.

I worked in the corporate world until quitting in 2000 to pursue careers as an entrepreneur and inventor. I moved from San Antonio to NYC in pursuit of more technology driven business opportunities. One side benefit of NYC is that one of my favorite hobbies is acting. I have been a substitute teacher specializing in high school science and math since 2005. It is a pleasure to help motivated students with the process they need to master that day's assignment and also satisfying to encourage marginally motivated students with the help and encouragement they need to look at the subject in a positive light.

It is also critically important for students to learn the tactics of test taking in the process of gaining every advantage.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored algebra 1 on countless occasions as a substitute teacher during the past 7 years.

Algebra 2

I completed calculus 4 at the University of New York at Stony Brook and have successfully tutored a prior student here on wyzant in algebra 2.

ASVAB

I worked for the Air Force for twelve years and have been a math tutor for three years.

Elementary Math

I am certified on WyzAnt for elementary math. I have been a substitute teacher since 2007 and have enjoyed working with all levels of children. I have a degree in chemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with a GPA of 3.8. My tutoring style is to be patient with the child until they understand the concept of how to solve the problem. With elementary math, repetition often helps kids become proficient with math.

Probability

I have achieved an "A" in statistics 1 and 2.

Reading

I am certified by WyzAnt for reading. I am patient with the student in their reading until they can grasp the main ideas the author is conveying to the reader. Ideally, I would like the student to understand that reading can be a pleasurable experience that can transport them to the world the author has created.

Statistics

I received an "A" in statistics 1 at Wright - Patterson Air Force Base and an "A" in statistics 2 at Northwest Florida State college while working for the Air Force.
