Math/Test Prep Tutor for ASVAB/AFOQT/ACT/SAT/TEAS/HESI Math/Verbal
I graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Mathematics from Christopher Newport University. I earned departmental honors for having the highest GPA in the Math department. As an undergraduate, I was a math tutor for several semesters in the CNU math lab. I worked one-on-one with students in pre-calculus and calculus. I continued to tutor in the lab for one semester after graduation before moving on to an 18 year career as a data analyst. In my spare time, I tutored math students ranging from...

Excellent Tutor
Michael was very patient with me. He explained everything in layman's terms and made it easy to understand. I informed him of areas I needed to focus on and he was able to provide problems that were tailored to my request. I would recommend Michael to anyone needing a tutor for simple math, algebra, geometry and calculus.
Albert, 8 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for the favorable review, Graham. I look forward to continuing to help you prepare for the OAR. I always try to keep thing simple, as well as provide students with test-taking strategies that can help them improve their time management. I believe that these techniques, combined with your math knowledge, will translate into success when you take the exam.
Knowledgeable, Kind and patient Educator!
Michael is very approachable, easy to follow, prompt and polite. He has a gift for teaching, which is a virtue that is difficult to come across. I was able to understand and grasp the material fully when it came to our lesson. I picked up a lot more in my session with Michael than I would alone. If you are in search of a great tutor and conversationalist to boot, look no further. Michael is compassionate in what he does.
Amy, 1 lesson with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Amy. Even though we had only one session together, I know that you will do exceedingly well on the ASVAB. I have never had a student make a stronger first impression than you did. It was extremely pleasant working and conversing with you. I wish you nothing but success in your future endeavors!
AFOQT math/word knowledge tutoring was incredibly helpful
I am about 6 years out of high school, so I was very rusty on my math skills. I never took a single math class in college. I tried teaching myself, but quickly realized I was going to need help. I saw from Michael's reviews that he had experience with AFOQT students in the past. Michael had math questions ready for me during our first tutoring session and always asked if there was anything else specific that I would like to discuss. I had about one lesson per week over the last two months and I am very happy with the outcome. I believe I am much more proficient with math skills and I am going into the AFOQT with far more confidence than I had before. I would highly recommend Michael for the AFOQT math, or any other math of that type. In our last lesson he gave me a few very good pointers for the word knowledge section as well which I think will be very beneficial for the test.
Austin, 11 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:One of the best parts of being a math tutor is getting the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Austin over these past couple of months. He was always very receptive, inquisitive, and motivated to succeed. Despite being six years removed from high school, his level of math knowledge was still very sound. Like many others, he simply needed a refresher on certain areas. Based on what I have observed, I believe that this student is poised for success on the AFOQT and beyond.
Michael breaks down Math in an easy way for me to understand and remember.
Michael has been the best Math tutor for me. He explains things in an easy manner and a in a way that I understand fairly quickly. He is very understanding, patient, encouraging and non judgmental. Math has always been a challenge and now that I'm a re-entry student going back to school after 20 years I am needing a major review of basic math and algebra. Michael is a God send.
Tara, 17 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:I appreciate your positive feedback, Tara. It is always my goal to make things easy to understand. My experience as a community college algebra instructor has provided me with ample opportunities to assist adult learners returning to school after several years away from the classroom. I demonstrate the same patience with them as I would hope that someone would exhibit with me. Keep up the hard work, and I am confident that you will succeed.
Great
Michael has a way with words. Easy to comprehend and understand. Extremely patient, moves at just the right pace, very professional.
Shanell, 5 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:I really appreciate the kind words, Shanell. You obviously had an excellent knowledge of mathematics. Like many students, you are simply in need of a refresher on certain topics. I know that our test prep sessions, coupled with your skill level, will translate into an excellent score on the ASVAB GT section.
Best Math Teacher
Michael is the best math teacher I’ve ever have! He is just exceptional! I’m 28 and take math lessons to get ready for accuplacer math test. I’m not good at math at all, I’ve never been! It always seemed too boring and difficult. However Michael helps me a lot, he always can find a way to explain something difficult in a very easy way.
Nadia, 12 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Nadia, for the positive feedback. During our lessons, you have demonstrated an extraordinary work ethic and drive to succeed. There is no doubt that your hard work will result in success on the Accuplacer and beyond.
Gave me hope when No one thought I was smart nough .
Michael really gave me the light I was looking for. All my life I have struggled with math but I have always been able to get by, but when I decided I wanted to join the military I had to take a test called the asvab witch I had failed twice before having classes with michel. He made me look at math problems from a totaly different perspective teaching skills that are a game changer when it comes to standardized test’s like the asvab. He thought me time saving strategies that were a key to my success! I had lost all hope to be honest I thought I would never achieve this goal but he was kind paitient he listened and learned my weak points. I learned more with michel in one month than with 12 years of Mathematical experience in high school middle school and even elementary. He not only thought me Arithmetic reasoning and geometry But also with the challenging word comprehension part of the test. I went from having a 21 percentile score to achieving a 42FAQT score which is huge compared to where I was. Michael made my fear of working with percentages and fractions seam like nothing by the time I was done I had it down like muscle memory. I will always recommend this Outstanding tutor to anybody of any age. I achieved my goal because of him and for that I will be for ever grateful. Thank you
Lohandra, 46 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:I have never seen a student more focused or dedicated than Lohandra. Her work ethic and motivation were incomparable. I knew that this would translate into success for this student, and it did. Her enthusiasm also made each tutoring session extremely enjoyable. It was quite rewarding to watch this student's confidence and competence grow with each successive session. I know that Lohandra has only scratched the surface of her potential; the best is yet to come. Thank you for such positive feedback!
Great Tutor
I worked with Michael on math problems for my upcoming TEAS test. Michael is a great instructor and explained everything very thoroughly. I look forward to working with him again.
Alison, 2 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Alison. I look forward to continuing to work with you, too. I can clearly see that you are a quick learner, and you should have no difficulty with excelling on the TEAS exam. As it is with many students, you are probably only in need of a refresher on certain topics, as well as some insight into how to become an even better test-taker.
Kind and Knowledgeable
Michael assisted me with preparing for the AFOQT. While our primary focus was on the quantitative portion he also helped with the verbal. He is by far one of the best tutors I have ever encountered both as an adult and looking back to undergrad. Not only did help me achieve the scores I needed but he did the same for my cousin. Because of his dedication and patience both my cousin and I will become officers in the U.S. Air Force. I can’t thank him enough for how he was able to help me in such a short time. If you’re looking for a great tutor that DOES NOT talk down to you look no further. He is your guy.
Antonio, 3 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Antonio, it was a pleasure working with both you and Kandace. I know from our interaction that both of you will be extremely successful in your future endeavors. You have the professionalism, discipline, and motivation to make fine officers in the Air Force. The nation can be proud that it has individuals like you serving to protect our freedom and way of life. Thank you!
Excellent
He teaches my daughter 5th grade math!! Great guy, awesome and amazing!! I would recommend him to anyone!! My daughter Loves the help he gives her as well, she said he's been more helpful than her teacher and has more patience.
Tenisha, 10 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you so much for the positive feedback. Jayla is a quick learner and a good student. She listens well and it is very easy working with her. She seems to enjoy learning, and that attitude will serve her well throughout her schooling and beyond. It is a pleasure to be her tutor for elementary mathematics.
