references: Mike is an amazingly caring and trustworthy person. He goes out of his way to do things for others and is always willing to help. He is easy going and laid back which makes for an excellent tutor. Mike puts students at ease and makes them comfortable to ask any question. He is incredibly brilliant. I have always thought it takes true superior intelligence to be able to break down complicated subjects in an easy way and make them understandable for others. He brings this skill to life. He is a great communicator and all around quality person. I have no hesitation recommending him as a teacher. --Lisa Andruscavage, MD   Great tutor, makes learning easy, takes time to explain, and is willing to go the extra mile so that you can excel on your educational journey. I was an older returning student who had literally been out of school for almost 20 years. I needed math to graduate and was totally lost. Michael made learning fun and helped me understand in a way that I thought was impossible.

Rating and Reviews

"Great Pleasure Receiving Tutoring From Mike"

Mike is a great tutor but he also takes pride in seeing his students do well. While it is never expected, there are times Mike goes beyond the hour just to make sure our son understands the material. We have seen our student's grades increase dramatically since Mike has been providing his tutoring. It has been a great pleasure getting to know Mike. Highly recommend.

"Guaranteed To Pass Your Course"

I've been through plenty of tutors over the years and I've never had the feeling that I'd for sure pass the course I was in. There always was a level of uncertainty with all of the others. With Michael it's almost a guarantee that you will pass your course, granted you have to put in the time, but Michael is who you need to succeed!
