Michael

I'm a tutor living in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles. Over the course of my academic career I've developed a host of strategies and work ethics in pursuit of good grades and learning. Now that I've graduated from college, I'm ready to start passing on my experience to other young learners to help them get the grades they need and approach tests and the future of college with confidence. I have a strong academic background, graduating as Salutatorian - Summa Cum Laude and AP Scholar with honors from my high school. I made the Head of School list every year and earned special awards in math, physics, theatre, and writing and later graduated Cum Laude from USC as a member of the Alpha Lamda Delta national honor society.

I specialize in helping students grasp new material, complete their homework, study for tests, improve their grades, and prepare for the academic and professional environment of modern college. My main subjects cover the general education students receive in grades up to the end of high school, such as Writing, Math, and Literature. I also specialize in various artistic extracurricular activities, such as animation in Adobe Flash and Video Production.

I interact with my students as a fellow learner, encouraging them to take control of their education as we work together to find what methods work best for them. Mine is a comfortable, friendly, and positive study zone. When working together, I make sure that if a student feels overwhelmed with new material, we take the time to go through each new concept thoroughly until the student feels confident and ready to move on. When tests and finals are on the way, I guide the note-taking and course review process and afterwards, we review the test and reinforce areas that still need work.

My scheduling is very flexible and I am generally available weekdays at any time between 9am and 7pm.

If that sounds good to you, send me a message.
