I am in New York City (Astoria and beyond) until at least the end of April 2018 substitute teaching for NYC and tutoring on weekends. I might go on spring break while school it out from March 30 to April 6 but will be available online no matter where I am physically.
I graduated with a 3.8 GPA from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with a degree in Chemistry. I was one of ten nominees for valedictorian of my graduating college class of 4,000 and inducted into the phi beta kappa college honor society.
I am not a genius or have unusual intelligence but have mastered the tricks of test taking and the need to understand the rationale behind the math formula or scientific principal and stress this in my tutoring techniques. It is critically important for students to learn the tactics of test taking in the process of gaining every advantage.
I received an "A" in statistics 1 at Wright - Patterson Air Force Base and an "A" in statistics 2 at Northwest Florida State college both while working for the Air Force as a price analyst.
I am available for both in home and online tutoring. I am strictly professional so you can trust me when tutoring your child or yourself in that any conversation will only be related to education.
I worked in the corporate world until quitting in 2000 to pursue careers as an entrepreneur and inventor. I moved from San Antonio to NYC in pursuit of more technology driven business opportunities such as app development, affiliate online marketing and coding. One side benefit of NYC is that one of my favorite hobbies is acting. I have been a substitute teacher specializing in high school science and math since 2005.
It is a pleasure to help motivated students with the process they need to master that day's assignment and also satisfying to encourage marginally motivated students with the help and encouragement they need to look at the subject in a positive light.
Helped 4 students complete their college algebra classes.
Extremely patient teacher. Don’t think I could have done well without Dr. D. Michael . Received an A on the course.
I was struggling in college algebra until I hired him to tutor me and assist me homework and he got me through it and I passed with a C+ thanks again.
I had an exam two days away and I was very grateful Mike was able to help me polynomials and how they are graphed. I learned some great websites also.
