About Michael

Dear Parents and Potential Students,

I am currently a licensed, practicing high school teacher. I have been tutoring since college in most areas of science. I understand that it is tough and I am willing to help anyone through the various pitfalls of science. I am pretty easy going and flexible. After being hired, I will sit down with the student and ask a series of questions that will help me to determine how they learn best. This will then allow me to tailor your tutoring experience that will allow for optimal understanding of the content as it will be seen through a lens that best fits the student. This can include, practice sets, visualization of the content, relevance with the topic, case studies, and anything else that I can do to help the student learn the material.

My comfort level includes Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Microbiology, Physics, and any other topic that is related to science. I am available to meet with you at any point in time and any location that you are comfortable with. Let me help you get to your goals. Please email me with any questions that you have.

Sincerely,

Mike

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anatomy

I am currently teaching this class in my own High School. The human body is fascinating to me, and it can be very challenging. A plethora of hard work needs to go into this subject in order for mastery to occur. I have studied this course in high school and in college as well as at a medical student, so I have seen all angles of it and use this lens to my advantage when teaching about it.

Biology

Biology is a course that I teach on a regular basis. It is a very fun course that can allow for everyone to understand the world. Sometimes the interactions can be challenging to understand those interactions, and that is where I can help.

Chemistry

I really enjoy chemistry. It is a passion of mine and something that I really enjoy teaching. I can help here in anyway that I can. There are fun labs that can be done in the home to understand a principle and I would bring these into the session to help understand chemistry.

Ecology

This subject parallels biology in many different instances. It can be interesting and frustrating if you cannot understand the connections and verbage that comes with a science course. I will help to understand the verbage and connections in any way that I can.

Genetics

I took genetics as part of my biology degree in college. During this time, I conducted various electrophoresis labs and extracted and isolated DNA for use. I have worked in Mendelian genetics, punnett squares, single gene traits and multi gene traits.

Microbiology

During my time in pharmacy school, I was able to perform several labs, including gram negative staining, gram positive staining and other techniques that allowed me to identify different strains of bacteria.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken Organic chemistry I and II during my time in college. I tutored the subject for my classmates as part of the colleges tutoring services. I also helped in tutoring with the labs and identification of unknown organic compounds.

Physical Science

Physical science is a mix of chemistry and physics, which are very much math based. It can be overcome with a small amount of effort and help if needed. I teach this course every semester and really enjoy getting students to understand the concepts.

Physics

Physics is a math heavy course. It can be overcome by practice and practice. When I took this course in college, it was a challenge to me, but I know how to overcome it and I am positive that I can help anyone pass the course.
