Personal Statement

I have tutored in mathematics and physics during my graduate years while earning my PhD in experimental particle physics. I have a passion for mathematics and physics and love continuing to learn myself. I find it rewarding to see others learn in these areas as well. I have a large base of subjects for which I am qualified to assist in. My motto as a tutor is "to be able to put myself out of business". My style is to empower the student to become self-sufficient and confident in their ow...

Michael helped my daughter with geometry and totally exceeded our expectations. He was friendly and we could tell it was his passion to help others succeed. He helped my daughter to bring down her barrier and to relate geometry to other things she understood in life by breaking it down into smaller pieces. We would so recommend Michael to anyone struggling in math. Thank you so very much.

Mike has a way of explaining things easily. We went over some basic concepts re Java, and discussed ways of tracing recursion methods. He is very knowledgeable and helped me feel more confident about the material. I'll be working with him to prepare for computer science finals and then for calculus next semester.

Michael is a very good teacher! He is very knowledgeable and knows how to explain concepts thoroughly in different ways. He's super passionate and enthusiastic when it comes to teaching. Now I am definitely more confident in my math skills!

Mike worked with my son on a precalculus lesson that he was having a hard time understanding. My son said that Mike was an enthusiastic teacher and explained the lesson in a way that he could understand. Also, Mike was able to fit in the lesson very last minute for us and accommodated our meeting place. Thank you Mike!

Michael taught me a lot of subjects that I was struggling with in college level Calculus II. He was very good about showing me how to do the problem and then letting me work through them with his guidance. I would highly recommend Michael for a tutor in any subject.

Helped with everything from minor errors to conceptual improvement in Java. Very good at making sure I thoroughly understood why we were doing what we were doing and able to make progress on assignment.

Although we only had one lesson, Michael is patience and knowledgeable in programming. My son learned more than from his own instructor. Provides an example, details, and explanations of the subject in an organized manner. Would use him again.

He was very professional, got started right away while asking a million questions to get a good idea of my abilities and where to go from there. He helped me worth through my math homework & study for my next Algebra 2 quiz. I feel much more confident.

Michael worked on college algebra with me and helped me so much. He worked through everything in a way in which I was able to understand the material. Michael also knew so much about every problem I put in front of him to help me with. He made me feel very confident with the material I was given.

Michael helped me a lot with my computer programming homework. he was very patient and was able to walk me through each step while making sure i understood. i will be using him as much as i can in the future!
- Cole G. from Fort Collins, CO
Michael is a fantastic tutor. My daughter was amazed that she actually knew what she was doing after meeting with him. He offered her other strategies that work for her. Awesome!
- Susan B. from Fort Collins, CO
Michael was able to help me understand concepts I wasn't quite sure of before. He explained some things I had already understood but in a simpler and more concise way that will make programming in the future significantly easier. He is a great tutor that I will be working with again!
- Steven G. from Fort Collins, CO
Michael met with my son to cover Trig identities. His method of relating complex math theory into everyday life examples makes it much easier to understand and retain. He takes great pride in sharing his love of math and it's evident in the interest level of his students. Keep up the good work Mike, your making math cool one student at a time.

Michael helped me to understand the fundamentals of Trigonometry much better so that I can grasp the concepts better in class. He was great!

I sent Michael an agenda ahead of time, which was a homework assignment I was struggling with. Michael diligently prepared a mock-up of a possible solution to my homework assignment. We went over his mock-up and I gained a better understanding of how the logic works and how to put all the pieces together and simply tasks using methods, etc. We didn't waste one minute of the 2 hour session.

Michael was here on Sunday. When it came to the end of the lesson, I entered the conversation. My son was so happy - it was obvious that he had learned and made meaningful connections in trig. I am very thankful for the time Michael spent with my son. It made trig a positive. A++++++ to Michael for connecting with my son, and meaningfully teaching him. EXCELLENT INSTRUCTOR!!!!! :)

Michael was a great tutor to have for computer science. Each time that we met he came well prepared and had a solid understanding of the subject. He also took the time to make sure that you actually understood the concept instead of just showing you the steps to do a problem. When I did have a hard time understanding stuff he was able to explain it in different ways that made sense, and related things to the real world which was very helpful. He is definitely the best tutor I have had.
- Zach O. from Fort Collins, CO
Michael was an excellent tutor for my son with his Calculus II class. He was extremely patient and had a fabulous way of relating math concepts to real life examples. It was obvious he cared that my son understood the materials covered. We would highly recommend Michael!!
- Cynthia H. from Fort Collins, CO
Michael is an overall great tutor. He really knows and understands math and its applications. With Michael's help I was able to turn my grade in Differential Equations around completely, and I feel like when topics come up later on down the road I'll actually remember how to use them. My only complaint is that Michael can be somewhat difficult to schedule with - he's just really busy! Nonetheless, he makes every effort to work you in, and even a single hour-long lesson a week proved very beneficial for me.

Michael is a great tutor. He's very patient, has a good attitude and is knowledgeable. I highly recommend Michael, especially if your difficulties lie anywhere in a computer related field.
