Top Tutor for AFOQT/ASVAB/HESI/TEAS/ACCUPLACER/Math
I've helped an AFOQT student raise his pilot score from 33 to 98, another improve his math score by 62 points, and a third elevate his math score from 39 to 76 after 1 lesson. I've helped an ASVAB student go from 22 to 59 in less than 2 weeks of tutoring. I've also helped a TEAS student earn 100% on the Math section and another raise her prior math score 25 points from a 59 to an 84.
Preparing for timed tests requires a different skill set. I teach students to use mental math, logic, and...

Mind Blowing!
I'm studying for the AFOQT and have had a difficult time studying by myself. I'm glad I found Michael. I have had one lesson with him and it was MIND BLOWING! He's extremely knowledgeable in his expertise. I haven't done math like this since I graduated high school in 2004 and during our lesson he was extremely patient with me. I was remembering steps in solving problems I haven't done in years! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Michael. I know I'm going to do well on this test because of his help!
Loliana, 4 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you so much, Lo, for your amazing comments! First impressions are everything, and I know after just one meeting that you have the ability to do extremely well on the AFOQT. It is very easy to work with a student who is attentive, engaged, and cooperative. I, too, look forward to continuing to help you acheive your goals.
Professional! Goes above and beyond!
Michael was extremely helpful in helping me studying for the TEAS exam, particularly in math. He was not only knowledgeable in math, but had many helpful study tools as well as tips and tricks to eliminate multiple choice questions without having to solve the problems. He was professional, patient, and always well prepared. He also was available outside of our tutoring sessions to help with any questions I had. I would highly recommend using Michael as a tutor!
Alycia , 6 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for the kind words, Alycia. The math on the TEAS is no harder than what you would expect in a 9th grade algebra or geometry class. Therefore, I am certain that none of the material on the test is new to TEAS students. They simply need a refresher on the basics. However, rather than trying to re-learn all of algebra, geometry, and statistics, I help students master the shortcuts and strategies that can be used to earn a high score on the test. That is my philosophy with all career aptitude tests, including the HESI, PAX, and the military aptitude and officer candidate tests. I am certain that all of your hard work, coupled with these tips, will help you perform very well on your TEAS exam.
Customized to My Needs and Goals
Michael was able to help me identify the areas I needed to get better at for the next exam. I am excited to keep working with him, as I have already learned so much so far!
Kerry-Ann, 5 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for the favorable review, Kerry-Ann. It was very helpful of you to share the breakdown of your recent TEAS exam with me so that I could develop a game plan that addressed your specific needs. Tutoring is a partnership between tutor and student, and the bests results occur when we work together as a team. I really appreciate it!
Excellent Math Lesson
I haven't had a math class since 2006, and in just an hour, Michael brought back a lot of knowledge I thought was lost. Studying for the AFOQT by myself has been hard, so I'm really happy to have found a tutor that can break things down simply to dust off the cobwebs. I am really looking forward to more sessions with him before I take my test.
Ashley, 9 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Ashley. I always tell students that the math on the AFOQT covers things you probably already know, but have just forgotten because you haven't done them in a while. Moreover, succeeding on the AFOQT math sections requires you to use a different approach than you would take in an algebra or geometry class. The test administrators don't need to "see your work." They only care whether you provide the correct answer. I show students how to obtain those answers without all the work.
Great Teacher
Have done 2 lessons so far with Michael and have learned a great amount information from him. I plan to take many more lessons with him to further prepare myself for the AFOQT.
Kodi, 5 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thanks for the favorable review, Kodi. I look forward to continuing to help you prepare for the AFOQT.
Knowledgeable
Michael helped me more into identifying the root, suffix and prefixes of words to help me break them down. He is very patient and knowledgeable about the things he explains. He also provides many great examples to help break down his explanations
Cesar, 1 lesson with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for sharing these comments, Cesar. It is my pleasure to assist you with the verbal portion of the AFOQT.
Knowledgeable and detailed
Wonderful tutorial, i have learnt a lot knew techniques especially in maths solving problems, i would recommend him to all students looking to sharpen their skills and improve their scores.
Abe, 5 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you very much, Abe. I am glad that you have found the strategies we have discussed to be helpful.
Knows how to break things down
Michael was a huge a help with helping me break down vocabulary words when preparing for the AFOQT. Looking forward to future sessions. He also helped me form a study plan to help me achieve my end goal.
Adam, 6 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Adam, for the positive review. I am happy to assist you with accomplishing your goals.
Knowledgeable and Dedicated
I have just finished my tutoring with Michael and feel very confident taking the AFOQT! Michael is seriously good at teaching the material. In addition to that, he helps outside of tutoring by sharing resources or answering questions. He's certainly one of the best.
Dallas, 7 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Dallas, I really appreciate the kind words. It has been a pleasure working with you, and I definitely believe that you will succeed on the AFOQT and beyond.
Highly Recommended! Knowledgeable and Patient
It's been some time since I have last studied for a test and preparing for the OAR is not easy. I would like to thank Michael for his patience and knowledge on the subject. He made it really easy to understand and I would highly recommend him for any math-related subjects! Thank you and looking forward to more sessions in the future!
Randolph Chester , 10 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for the kind words, Randolph. My goal is to make the material as simple as possible so that the student can ultimately complete the problems on his or her own. Most students seeking test prep only need a refresher because it has been some time since they have used these concepts. With continued practice and hard work, I am sure that you can do well on the OAR.
