Hello! My name is Michael McClean. I have been teaching independently for many years, beginning in high school as a tutor in Math and Sciences while studying on through AP Spanish and Calculus at Folsom High. I spent a year after this in an internship at my church, running the Middle School youth ministry. Into college I began work as a music instructor, studying music education for all woodwind and percussion instruments and teaching in both group and private settings. I also spent a year studying German and musical pedagogy in southern Germany. I have a B.A. In Music and minor in German Language from Sonoma State University. My girlfriend and I have been together since high school (nearly 10 years now) and are new to the San Mateo area, following an opportunity for her in the thriving Tech industry here. We have two cats and love meeting new people, playing board games and going on adventures. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions - my goal in teaching to ensure that a concept is not only memorized, but understood to its core for easy replication and application. I look forward to working with you!

Mike was always patient, calm, and easy to talk to. He was polite, pleasant, and genuinely engaged. He explained things clearly and adjusted his instruction to my child's need. He was very knowledgable. My child enjoyed working with Mike. I can recommend him whole heartedly!
