Personal Statement

I am retired military and currently teaching math and sciences in local high schools. I have over 4000 hours teaching high school and adult students with a variety of backgrounds. My focus is on student comprehension and skill mastery. I do not care about grades, per se; I care that my students understand the material and can appropriately apply their skills. My philosophy is that as long as students understand and are willing to put in the work, good grades will follow.

Michael was knowledgeable and very helpful with teaching me how to solve and analyze the cost control problems. He also provided examples of real life scenarios which allowed me to have a better understanding of the homework assignment.

I liked that Michael covered the aspects really well for what would be deemed working knowledge of Excel. I liked his teaching style because it was not over my head and he was patient. We talked about the job description for my interview and the questions to ask in it. He helped me understand it better so I could have a better idea of what the job and the company would be like going in. That put my mind at ease.

Michael is the first tutor that has been able to decode math in a manner in which my son can grasp! I?m looking forward to continuing to watch my son?s grades improve. Give Mike a try... you won?t regret it!

Mike was excellent and patient. I would recommend him for anyone who needs to learn how to use the excel software. Mikes approach was methodical and his explanations concise and to the point, he takes enough time to answer questions and he is not condescending.
