Expert Tutoring


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 was great with my son who has ADHD and he had many ideas on which way to attack the problem. My sons test is on Tuesday and we have worked with Michael on Saturday and Sunday and my son said “he is amazing”. I do t think I’ve ever heard those words
    Out of his mouth. So grateful to have found such an experience mature teacher to help us. I’m sure we will use him for years to come.

    I like to keep things simple, so it's just pay-as-you-go by cash, check, PayPal, Venmo, or Zelle. 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. 

    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.

    I work with students in kindergarten, grades 1-12, college students, and working adults including those in the military.

    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.
