ASVAB/AFOQT, HESI/TEAS, ACCUPLACER, SAT/ACT, Algebra, Calculus 1 Tutor
I tutor pre-algebra, algebra I and II, pre-calculus, trigonometry, calculus I, and more. However, preparing for timed tests requires a different skill set. I teach students to use mental math, logic, and common sense to improve their time management, which leads to higher scores. For fun, I read the dictionary and do crossword puzzles. This has expanded my vocabulary and enabled me to help students increase their verbal scores on tests like the ASVAB, AFOQT, TEAS, and HESI. If you need test...

ASVAB
Mr. Michael, Hands down is one of the best tutors I’ve ever had. He takes time to break down the lesson so that you understand. If you get an answer wrong he doesn’t make feel bad, instead he explains to where you can understand why your answer was incorrect. Over the last few weeks, I feel more confident in preparing to take my ASVAB, and join the military. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.
Tayeshawn, 15 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Dequan, for the compliment. Part of succeeding on a test, or in life in general, is having confidence. Never doubt yourself, and don't let anyone else's doubts stop you from reaching for your goals. There is nothing you cannot do if you set your mind to it.
Great test prep
Michael started by introducing his style: teaching tests. Reach lesson is a test, and then we review each question individually. I found that helpful and discovering my weaknesses through practice in the test itself.

Amazing AFOQT Tutor!
Michael has been an incredibly patient and abundantly knowledgeable tutor. I started tutoring with Mike with very little confidence in my math knowledge and skills. After tutoring with him I have much more faith in my abilities to solve math problems more quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who needs help preparing for their AFOQT or any other standardized test that requires math knowledge. I will be going into the test with much more confidence thanks to Mike.
Cristina, 13 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:I do appreciate all of the kind words, Cristina. From the beginning, it was apparent that you were not lacking in math knowledge or abilities. You should have confidence in your skills, because I have every confidence that you will do extremely well on the AFOQT.
Exceptional tutor
Michael explains mathematical problems in a fundamental way that all ages can understand. Great tutor I highly recommend him and will continue to learn with him
SHADAYA, 2 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for your positive review, Shadaya. I try to explain things in a manner that I would want them explained to me if I do not understand them.
Excellent AFOQT Tutor
I highly recommend having Michael as your tutor for the AFOQT. I’ve been tutoring with Michael for two months and I feel a lot more confident especially with word knowledge which is my biggest weakness, but I now recognize prefix, roots, suffixes, and finding a relationship between word. Even with math problems, the steps Michael takes to find the correct answer will be a lot more simpler. Michael does not judge you, he wants to help you be successful and I can not thank Michael more enough for helping me.
Namani, 19 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you very much for the positive review, Namani. I do hope that the strategies that I have shared with you will assist you with achieving your goals on the AFOQT. Your easy-going personality and receptive attitude has made tutoring with you a rewarding experience.
Great teacher
Michael is great at explaining the material, he never makes you feel dumb about not knowing and he also doesn’t give you the answer. He makes you lead yourself to the correct answer.
Mike, 10 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Mike. Part of the Socratic Method of tutoring is to ask leading questions to elicit the answer from the student, not to simply do the work for the student. That has always been my approach, and I appreciate your feedback. I also never judge a student because he or she may have difficulty with a particular subject. I would want someone to exhibit the same patience with me that I show to my students if I were seeking assistance.
Priceless
Don’t hesitate to schedule a lesson with Micheal, you will not regret it. He’s incredibly good at explaining every aspect of a concept step by step. He’s great at both answering any questions as well as offering examples of things you may not realize you will need to know.
Deanne, 2 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Those kind and generous comments mean a lot to me, Deanne. I definitely enjoyed tutoring you for the AFOQT, and I hope you succeed on the test and beyond that in your future endeavors. Thank you so much!
