My name is Mike, I'm from Central Jersey and I graduated Temple University with a BA in Biology in December, 2016. I currently work at Temple's Center for Substance Abuse Research department, studying cellular and molecular mechanisms of cocaine addiction using mice and rats at. I am starting a PhD program in Biomedical Sciences at Lewis Katz School of Medicine in August, 2018.

During my first year at Temple I was a math tutor at George Clymer Elementary School in Philadelphia. It was a great experiencing tutoring students there and watching their confidence in their abilities improve. I have also tutored two students in NJ throughout their Geometry and Algebra I courses.

I strongly believe that everyone is capable of doing well in any subject. All it takes is a little bit of explanation or clarification, which I can provide, and practice, which I will strongly encourage. That is my recipe for success, and I am confident that it can not just help any student get an A, but also prepare that student for college and other future academic endeavors.

Math has always been my favorite subject. I have earned straight As in math my entire life, I scored a 5/5 on the AP Calculus BC examination in 12th grade, and I scored a 770/800 on the Math section of the SAT. Not only do I understand most math concepts extremely well, but I also do a great job of teaching what I know to students. I will make sure that you or your child fully understands the concepts, as opposed to just memorizing what to do.

I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals! My rate is absolutely negotiable.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Before I begin teaching, I evaluate a student's knowledge of the subject of interest. This allows me to gauge which concepts I should focus on most. I teach concepts using as many real-life examples as I can, which often helps to increase interest level in the subject. Then I provide students with many practice problems. After all, practice is perfect!
