Hi, my name is Michael, and I would love to support you in learning with joy and confidence.
I completed my undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley, where I double majored in Economics and Business Administration while developing strong analytical and critical thinking skills along the way. While at Berkeley, I also tutored student athletes in math, economics, and statistics; guiding them to progress and excel in their studies by helping them learn the material in a way that they could easily metabolize.
In the corporate world, I worked in Finance as well as Operations. In those jobs, I learned how to work effectively on a team to reach company goals, and how to train interns and entry-level employees best practices at the workplace. Outside of the job, I trained as a yoga teacher and subsequently taught a weekly class for over two years. As a yoga teacher, I learned how to create an environment of ease and relaxation, and to be able to meet students wherever they were in their practice. In addition to teaching yoga, I privately tutored students in algebra, geometry, and statistics. I helped each student I worked with gain a deeper understanding of each subject, while presenting them with possibilities on how these subjects have practical real-world applications that would be relevant to the students.
After exploring classes and workshops outside of work, I fell in love with acting, and decided to embark on a new path by entering graduate school at USC to pursue my MFA in Acting. Through deep and extensive work on acting, movement, voice, and improvisation, I became a significantly more clear, compelling, and effective communicator.
I have been consistently passionate about learning throughout the course of my life, and am strongly intent on sharing the gift of learning with students through tutoring. I believe that as a tutor, I not only provide effective strategies for learning and improving grades, but I can offer a unique and expansive point of view that comes from my diverse, holistic, and integrated background.
I'd love to work together if we're a good match!
