Personal Statement

I am a graduate of Christopher Newport University with a magna cum laude B.A. degree in Mathematics. I have worked as a tutor in the CNU math lab and as an instructor in the Math Emporium at Thomas Nelson Community College. For over twenty years, I have helped numerous students improve their grades and increase their test scores.

The words most frequently used by students to describe me are patient and knowledgeable. They also say that I have the ability to explain complex material in terms...


I have had so many lessons with Michael, I honestly can't even count. Michael worked with me in preparing for the math section of the TEAS exam which I was so terrified about. He was so patient and gave me so many different tools on how to solve a problem. Michael was knowledgeable and professional. With Michael's help I scored high on the math portion and even higher on the overall exam. I was able to apply and get into a nursing program I've been wanting to for the longest. Even while in the nursing program currently, I needed to brush up on some med math questions and I instantly felt relived knowing that Michael was available to aid in the questions I had. Michael is honestly the best tutor I have ever had, and I am beyond appreciative.

Michael A. helped me study for the AFOQT and he was very helpful and made sure I understood and if I didn?t, he patiently went over the problems again to ensure I knew what I was doing. If you?re not good at picking up math then i would highly recommend him.

Michael's tutorial session with my 11 year old son was excellent! He assisted him with multiplying and dividing one-step Inequalities. We were well pleased with Michael's help. I specifically appreciated Michael's ability to encourage and affirm my son's abilities, which helped my son to increase his confidence during the session. This was a great experience for us. We will definitely be signing up for more lessons!

Michael taught me a lot in such a short period! He gave me good formulas and quick ways to eliminate answer choices. I am feeling a little more confident even after one lesson.

Micheal tutored my son over a 4 week period with the goal of increasing his ASVAB score. I saw my sons confidence increased after each session and the results confirmed this as his score increase by 19 points. Micheal was very meticulous and informative after each session. I highly recommend Michael for your tutoring needs. Thank you Michael, you help change a life!

My daughter walked away from Michael's tutoring session feeling very positive and more confident. She felt the tutor was very prepared and cleared up some difficult questions and problems.
- Xavier B. from Newport News, VA
I was having problems finding the right tutor to help me with Pre-calculus. I went through four tutors prior to finding Micheal. I have been out of school for over 12 years and math has always been a problem for me. Micheal made it real simple. He took all the complicated problems I was having trouble with and broke it down to where I could understand it clearly. He help me raise my whole entire average a whole letter grade and that was just two days of tutoring. I am glad that I found someone who is patience and takes the time out to really explain things for once. You don't see that with many tutors on here.
