About this tutor

Hello, I am a guitar and conducting graduate of UNLV, specializing in all advanced math subjects and test prep needs, in addition to classical guitar. I truly enjoy helping students excel. I am patient and empathetic and as former president of several clubs, I am accustomed to public speaking, being in a leadership position and helping others find their voice. I look forward to working with you or your child! I was an award winning math student at my Cambridge academy in Miami, Florida. Always top of my class, I began tutoring other students 10 years ago. I enjoy explaining all advanced subjects and am very patient and attentive to all of my students. I've helped to greatly improve grades and boost test scores!

That when I help students, I get to gradually but surely see their passion grow and their skills blossom. When a student is confident and ahead of the game in their classes, it can change their entire outlook towards school, and improves their mood, self esteem, and enthusiasm for taking on new challenges, both academically and socially.

    Michan has been tutoring my daughter in Geometry and he is very knowledgeable about the lessons and so patient. He takes his time and was also available when I needed him. Thank you, Michan !

  • Mario Font

    Michan is tutoring two of my kids, one in grade school and one high school. He adjusts his approach perfectly to each one. I would highly recommend him to any student at any level.

    My son loves his Algebra 2 tutoring sessions with Michan, in particular the way he explains the concepts and walks through the material!! He goes above and beyond. Highly recommend Michan!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, I like to schedule a little time before the first lesson to get to know them and discuss their academic goals. We figure out the schedule for their class, if it’s a subject they’re currently learning in school, and determine an ideal tutoring pace that will keep the student ahead of schedule. 

After our first lesson, I’ll create a diagnostic test for the student to take so that I can find out what their current weaknesses and strengths are in the subject. We build our monthly curriculum based off of the results of that test.
At the end of each lesson, I like to recap what we learned, and lay out the goals for the next week. 

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

For Math: 5 on AP Calculus AB, A on AICE Mathematics A Level, Perfect score of 36 on ACT Math, Perfect Scores of 800 on SAT II Math I and Math II, 7+ years of tutoring math professionally.

For Music: Bachelor’s of Arts from UNLV in Classical Guitar Performance, with training in composition, conducting, and keyboard. 5+ years of tutoring music professionally. 

For TestPrep: 35/36 on ACT, 176/180 on LSAT, 2300/2400 on SAT I. 5* years of tutoring test prep professionally. 


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

I charge $25/hour for math lessons, $35/hour for music lessons, and $50/hour for LSAT lessons. 


How did you get started teaching?

In middle school, I’d usually finish my work early, and since I loved to socialize, I’d usually end up going around the class helping my peers. That naturally turned into a professional tutoring habit that has only grown since. 


What types of students have you worked with?
I’ve worked with students of ages ranging from 4 to 70, and I’ve worked with special needs students and students with various disabilities. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently helped my girlfriend’s mother open up a Vietnamese Pho restaurant here in Las Vegas. Having been privy to some of the behind-the-scenes mania in the weeks leading up to the Grand Opening, it was a thrill to see everything go smoothly on opening day, as well as the pride and satisfaction of my girlfriend’s beaming mother.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
I would say, look for someone who is qualified on paper, but who also has a friendly persona and a love for interacting with people. So much of tutoring is transferring knowledge, which means  that communication is key, not just competence.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Nothing! Students should always feel free and comfortable to ask their teachers any question they think is relevant.
