Corey K. says, "As a mathematician, I know and appreciate a personalized approach to learning mathematics. We hired Mike to help us augment our efforts as well as go beyond what our son is learning in school (1st grade). Our goal is to help our son learn and love mathematics and explore its wonders beyond the unfortunate school curriculums. Mike's experience in tutoring and knowledge of mathematics has been compelling. He is also very patient and has lots of tricks up his sleeve in order to ensure a personalized learning experience. I recommend him to anyone who not only wants their kid to improve on what they are required to learn at school (which is a lot of the boring stuff) as well as get introduced to things that can really get them to engage the subject."
