About this tutor

I've been tutoring elementary school, middle school, high school, and college mathematics for over 20 years. I also have a great deal of experience providing standardized test preparation for the ACT, SAT, GED, GMAT, GRE, ASVAB, and CBEST.

Confidence is often half the battle when it comes to improving math skills and grades. I adapt to each student's individual style of learning while building confidence and improving grades in math.

I get to know my students' strengths, weaknesses, and style of learning as I work with them one-on-one. This allows me to adapt my teaching to each student as an individual. 

I derive a great deal of satisfaction watching my students improve their skills, grades, and confidence in math!

    Michael helped my daughter review for a math 7 accelerated placement final. She did not pass the first time but was able to retake it and with Michael's help she passed it the second time. Michael was very patient and explained things in simple terms that my daughter could understand. We will definitely be using him again if she needs any further help in math!

    I really enjoyed my time with Mike since he was able to help me work through my Pre-Calc problems showing me every step of the way and making sure I didn't fall off at any point. Nice and personable guy too!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

BS Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Michigan

MBA Pepperdine University

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I like to keep things simple, so it's just pay-as-you-go by cash, check, PayPal, or Venmo. I don't make anyone purchase a package of tutoring sessions.

I charge by the hour for a minimum of 1 hour per session. Typically, a session lasts for 1 hour. The per hour charge varies based on subject and how far I have to travel. 

How did you get started teaching?

I was very good in math, so when I was in 6th grade, my mom asked me if I was willing to tutor her friend's daughter who was struggling in 2nd grade math. I discovered that it gave me a great deal of satisfaction to help her improve in math.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students in grades 2-12, college students, and working adults.

In addition to working with a wide range of so-called "normal" students, I have extensive experience working with students that have mild autism (Asperger's), ADHD, and other learning disabilities. I also work with gifted students.

I provide standardized test preparation services for the following standardized tests: ACT, SAT, GED, GMAT, GRE, ASVAB, CBEST, and a variety math placement tests.
