Learn math from a teacher who loves it and is dedicated to dispelling the myth that math is hard.

The math teachers in the classrooms are so busy teaching students WHAT to do, they don't have the time to explain WHY it's done that way. This is where I'm different. Instead of having students memorize formulas, I derive them. My students understand the thinking that went into the formulas and are better prepared to not only retain the formulas longer, but also recognize when a situation (word problem) calls for a particular formula. The way I explain it, MATH ALWAYS MAKES SENSE. In my 18 years of experience, I've become very acquainted with the common core curriculum for Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus. On my own and through a variety of companies, I've helped HUNDREDS of students prepare for both the SAT and ACT math tests. I also cover AP Calculus and I've lost count of how many of my students scored 5. (On a scale of 1 to 5.)
About Michael R.

My two most favorite things to do are helping people and making people laugh. Tutoring Math allows me to do both of these at once. I present material in a humorist style to deliberately create a fun and relaxed environment. Why? Because when the brain is relaxed and having fun, it's wide open to absorbing the experience and that's when learning happens. If you pick me as your tutor, we're going to have fun and you will be amazed as I help you discover just how easy math really is.
