About Michael


Bio

Tutored for Olympic College. Started with Organic Chemistry and expanded to include Algebra through Calculus and most of the sciences. I was well liked by most of my students and was asked by them to help with other subjects (such as English or Music) that I had to decline. Mostly my working premise is that the student can learn the material. It is up to me to find a way of presentation that works with the student's background. I use the Socratic method a lot, asking the student questions...

Tutored for Olympic College. Started with Organic Chemistry and expanded to include Algebra through Calculus and most of the sciences. I was well liked by most of my students and was asked by them to help with other subjects (such as English or Music) that I had to decline.

Mostly my working premise is that the student can learn the material. It is up to me to find a way of presentation that works with the student's background. I use the Socratic method a lot, asking the student questions and building on the response.

I did some Skin diving from 1966 to 1975, and back packing from 1969 to 1975, mostly in the Olympics. I've also done some sailing, both cruising and racing. I managed to place in top three a few time in the local races. I have taught others how to sail. I have some photography experience, including some amateur Astronomy photos of the Hale-Bop comet and other sky features.

I am located in Bremerton. So, working with students in King county would be too expensive in travel time and cost. Sorry.

Patient and helpful

My son told me he really liked Michael for his kind and patient approach to helping him understand. He has seen many tutors and this is the first one he asked to see on a regular basis.

Stephanie, 3 lessons with Michael

Knows calculus from several different angles

Extremely helpful. Several calculus concepts (chain rule, related rates, differentiating trig functions) were eluding me. He has a huge math background and explains it well to us muggles. Wouldn't want anyone else.

Scott, 1 lesson with Michael

Very Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Michael was able to explain and clarify functions and problems related to my Pre-Calculus class. I feel confident that I will do good on my exam due to his help and understanding. Thank you Michael!

A teacher with outstanding patients and expertise

My granddaughter enjoys her one on one lessons. Math is not her favorite subject but she tells me that Mr Michael helps to make it a little easier to understand after each session.

Doris, 29 lessons with Michael

Great tutor

Michael has been a patient and helpful chemistry tutor to my 10th grade son. He is also flexible which is helpful when you don't always know the exact needs week to week. We recommend him.

Bill, 21 lessons with Michael

Very knowledgeable

Covered the binomial distribution and Poisson distribution. Michael was very knowledgable and helped me to gain a little better understanding of each concept.

David , 1 lesson with Michael

Patient and Knowledgable

Michael helped my daughter with algebra. She appreciated how he explained different concepts using real world examples so she could associate the math problems with something more personal.
