About Michael


Bio

In all four years of college, I helped people understand what they were struggling with in their programming classes. It started with helping friends with their homework. I soon discovered that there is something so wonderful about seeing realization dawn on someone's face as everything finally clicks. In my last year in college, I worked as a lab assistant, helping other students understand programming the same way I had with my friends. I was actually one of the few lab assistants people...

In all four years of college, I helped people understand what they were struggling with in their programming classes. It started with helping friends with their homework. I soon discovered that there is something so wonderful about seeing realization dawn on someone's face as everything finally clicks. In my last year in college, I worked as a lab assistant, helping other students understand programming the same way I had with my friends. I was actually one of the few lab assistants people sought out, because my style worked best for helping them learn.

There are two things I focus on while tutoring: understanding of concepts and following best practices (clean code, comments, etc.). The latter may seem like it complicates the former, but I believe habits are formed early on, and these habits are incredibly important.

I have been curious about software since middle school, and spend much of my free time working on my own software projects. Most of my experience lies in full stack web development, and I have also dabbled in game development and command-line programs. I am familiar with a number of programming languages, including: Bash, C, C++, CSS, Go, HTML, JavaScript, and Rust. If you are looking for homework help, I can help with many other languages as well, and demonstrate how to search for solutions in unfamiliar environments.

My ultimate goal is student success. As such, I welcome any feedback and respond quickly to messages. Feel free to contact me with questions or to schedule a lesson.

Patient and Knowledgeable Programmer

Michael helped me with my C++ assignment that dealt with classes and objects. Its clear he knows what he is talking about and can clearly explain the concepts in a way that was easier to understand then my professor or any video/lecture you can find online. Highly recommended if you want to learn how to program.

Great tutor!

Micheal is a fantastic tutor, super patient. He makes sure to explain everything rather than just giving me the answers to things. When I don’t sound completely sure of what I’m saying he goes back and works to be sure I do. He answered all of my questions and has given me resources to websites for even more help.

Knowledgeable and Patient

Coding! Techniques that I'm learning for HTML code, but needed more in-depth explanation. Michael was very knowledgeable about the content and helped me retain the information as we went over it. Great to work!

Knowledgeable, friendly, precise -- HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Michael is a great C tutor. He is very thorough, thoughtful, and can prompt you to review knowledge that you already have but might not be so confident in. I highly recommend and will be setting up weekly meetings with him!
