About Michael

I am a 1985 graduate of Texas Tech University. My major was Chemistry with a minor in Chemical Engineering. For the past 26+ years I have worked in the industry taking complex issues and breaking them down to provide solutions that can be implemented in a reasonable fashion and so that management teams could understand the issues that needed to be resolved. During this time I have worked in multiple countries and obtained an understanding of different cultures and have taught in these different backgrounds training employees.
In 2010 I embarked on obtaining my MBA which was obtained in 2013 from the College of William & Mary. I have continued to work in the industry and am now looking forward to working with a younger group of students that are striving to become successful in the world today and to make a positive change. I currently have a child that is working on his college education and another that is a junior in High School. I have kept current with both as to what they are being taught and how subjects are being taught in the school systems today.
Given my background I am able to help you succeed in today's fast paced educational learning experience. Together we can make a difference in your educational success in today's educational system and tomorrow's workforce.

We also utilize organic compounds to treat the water though inhibiting certain reactions to trying to have the organic compounds try and attract constituents so they can be removed from the solution more effectively.

Very helpful! — Michael does a magnificent job explaining the material in a way that my son understands. We looked for a tutor because he was struggling the first month of school. Since we started working with Michael, I know he is in good hands and I no longer worry about this subject. ...
