Patient and Knowledgeable Phi Beta Kappa Math and Science Tutor
Hi. My name is Mike, and I currently teach mathematics at a private, college preparatory high school. I have also taught math and science at the middle school level. My primary focus is in tutoring students in pre-algebra through calculus and I enjoy working with students at all levels of education from elementary through college. I have successfully tutored students through the Calculus AB AP test to score 3 or higher.
Are you a high school student anxious about your math class? I will...

Extremely happy to have found this excellent Tutor!
Michael is a wonderful tutor. He has the knowledge, talent, and patience to break down each step and tie it together logically to allow for a solid basis of understanding. His kind mannerism made me realize right away that we made an excellent choice in selecting his service. Our daughter has reached a new level of confidence and is eager to meet with him on a continuous basis to achieve her goal of success.

Knowledgeable and experienced
It is obvious that Mike is a experienced and knowledgeable teacher. To help my daughter understand some new concepts, Mike had some visual aids to show her, which was perfect since she is a visual learner. He did a good job identifying the help needed and addressing it.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.
Mr. S. is very good at explaining new concepts. He is patient and encouraging. My son's grades in geometry clearly improved because of his weekly tutoring with Mr. S. I would definitely recommend him.

Instruction easy to understand
Very good tutor. We only met once but he was most helpful and his instruction was very easy to understand. I hope to be able to use him again in the future.

Excellent Math Tutor
I like to consider myself a relatively quick learner, but something about learning math (specifically Trigonometry) at an online college was proving difficult for a multitude of reasons. I found Michael through the WyzAnt site because I was in need of a one-on-one environment to work out the kinks that I ran across from learning college math online. I found that his teaching style worked perfectly with my learning style, and he was able to offer me tips and tricks that helped me enormously when I was working through each week's homework and exam. He was flexible in both work time and location, meeting me either in the early morning or late afternoon; this was very important to me because I currently work night shift hours and I was afraid I would never find someone who would be willing to meet me when it was convenient for me. I was struggling with what now feel like basic math concepts, and Michael was able to boost my grades from low 80s to 90s and 100s just by working with me once a week on particularly tough sections and helping me to identify simple ways to work through and remember the problems I was dealing with. Even though he typically teaches trigonometry at the high school level, once we hit the "pre-calculus" levels of the college trigonometry course he was still able to work through those sections with me. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a math tutor at any level, because he is patient and flexible and teaches you what you need to know from the ground up.

Great Tutor!
Mr. S. is an amazing tutor. I had a hard time understanding some of the assignments from my Honors Pre-Cal class, and Mr. S. made everything clear and easy to understand by breaking down the problems step by step. I even improved a whole letter grade on my report card. I would recommend him to anyone who may have difficulty with understanding math.

Excellent Tutor for Calculus
Both my Mom and myself were greatly impressed with the concern and preparedness Mr. S. exhibited from even before my first session. He requested the publisher and textbook before our first session to be completely prepared of understanding the material I was covering in my class. This followed through our sessions as I would e mail calculus material being taught the day before our session and Mr. S. would be ready to cover it with me. Calculus is the only math class I've struggled with and Mr. S. helped me understand the concepts totally. I'm really grateful to Mr. S. for his dedicated help. He goes beyond the call of duty to ensure his students succeed. He even told me tips about going to college which I found helpful. I thank him wholeheartedly for his help.
