About Michael

Mathematical ideas and solutions can be discovered by anyone who has the desire to do so. I am hoping to show more people the beauty of mathematics through tutoring methods that make mathematics more interesting and applicable. As an Ideal, a mathematics class would be guided through captivating questions and ideas that aid the students in a self-discovering process. With a captivated curiosity comes motivation, and consequently the desire to understand. From this desire and the right line of questioning comes mathematical discovery and understanding. Over the past 3 years I have practiced this art of teaching mathematics at the university level, and I believe I am coming closer to this ideal while still craving perfection.

I have 3 years of experience teaching mathematics at Northern Arizona University. In those 3 years I have taught: Basic algebra, Business Mathematics, Quantitative reasoning, Precalculus, and Calculus. Also, I have 2 years experience working as a financial analyst for New York Life Ins (I prefer teaching). Most of my time teaching has been in front of a large audience, however, I teach one-on-one more effectively.

Also, I can provide tutoring in many other areas of mathematics and physics, such as; probability theory, differential equations, vector calculus, partial differential equations, analysis, fluid mechanics, introductory physics, abstract algebra, linear algebra, and some classical mechanics.

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.

Actuarial Science

I have taken four actuary classes throughout my undergraduate and graduate degree. These include; Probability theory, financial mathematics, actuary models (financial economics), actuary models (life contingencies). It has been a year or so since I have studied this material so I feel a little rusty. I could refresh in a day or so If need be.

Algebra 1

I have taught college algebra at NAU.

Calculus

I have teaching experience at NAU calculus and business mathematics

Differential Equations

I took differential equations in my undergrad receiving an A, and in grad school receiving an A. This is one of my areas of interest for research (I am currently pursuing a PhD in Partial differential equations). I have done little tutoring in Diff. eq. however I am very confident in the material.

Finite Math

I have taught 4 sections of finite mathematics at Northern Arizona University.

Linear Algebra

I have taken several linear algebra classes in both grad school and undergrad plus two abstract algebra classes in grad school.
