- I've been tutoring Math (Algebra, Pre-Calc, Calculus, SAT Math, ACT Math, Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Probability Theory, etc) in-person as well as online for 8 years, and Programming (Java, Python and C) for 5 years. I mainly focus on delivering the intuition and insight behind Math/Programming as well as their power to my students.

- I work best with those who are self-disciplined, self-motivated and have agency over their learning.

** Few remarks:
1. Tutori...
Mike was very helpful, highly recommend. He helped me understand class inheritance and best practices on how to setup my files/program. He also gave me practical tips (e.g., asterisk in a java file means data hasn't been saved) that are very useful. A session with Mike saved hours of time.
- Irene S. from San Diego, CA
Mike helped me countless of times with my coding homework (python). Not only is he patient and very intelligent, he also has a great sense of humor which made me feel welcomed and very comfortable. Mike is great and I recommend people getting help from him!
- Aleksandra B. from West Roxbury, MA
Mike is an extremely patient and helpful tutor! He took his time explaining every process carefully and helped me figure out the solutions on my own. He didn?t write any code for me but rather encouraged me to think through and deeply understand the tasks and I was able to complete the assignment and leave feeling much more confident. He illustrated the objectives on his iPad which was awesome and had taken time before our lesson to review the assignment and related material. Highly recommend working with Mike and I look forward to booking more lessons with him.
- Leslie L. from Los Gatos, CA
I am so happy to have found Mike. He?s very knowledgeable and patient. Both my kids have Mike tutor them math (Algebra 2 & Pre-Calc)and they both love him! He even has the same text book that they are using at school! Mike is awesome! Highly recommend!

Mike is very helpful teaching me Python. I needed help with a programming class and Mike has been easy to follow and makes things simple
- Conor D. from River Edge, NJ
Mike, allows me a comfortable environment to make mistakes and explain profoundly how the answer was reached. Also, Mike goes back to material you may have forgotten, in order for you to get to your answer. He is an overall great tutor that has gotten me to A?s in tests in my Calculus class.
- Bridgett M. from National City, CA
Mike is very helpful teaching me Python. I needed help with a programming class and Mike has been easy to follow and makes things simple.
- Conor D. from River Edge, NJ
Mike was very helpful with me and introducing me to programming. He broke things down very well, did an excellent job explaining principles, and how it all comes together. Would highly recommend.
- Molly O. from Falls Church, VA
As a beginner in Python, I know nothing. Mike was very patient with me and helped me step by step to understand "for loops" and arrays. I would absolutely recommend him as a tutor and will definitely be using his services throughout the semester.
- Jay L. from Sylmar, CA
Mike was very helpful teaching me Python. I needed help with a programming class and Mike was easy to follow and simplified things for me. I will be hiring Mike again.
- Conor D. from River Edge, NJ
Mike is super nice and patient. He really wants you to learn and you can tell he cares about you actually learning the material and becoming a better programmer.
- Daream B. from Silver Spring, MD
Mike helped me more in half an hour than my TAs did all week. He really helped me understand the logic behind my assignment and the logic behind the code.
- Ankie P. from San Francisco, CA
Mike helped me get through Calc 1, and is now helping me with Calc 2. He is very patient and has you try to solve the problem before he explains the answer. He also checks for depth of understanding (not just getting the right answer) before moving on. I ended up getting an A in Calc 1 which I could not have gotten without his help. I learned the material so well I was able to tutor my friends. Mike is also easy to talk to and makes learning calculus fun.
- Aidan G. from San Diego, CA
I was struggling a bit in pre-calc/trigonometry. Not a lot, but there were just certain concepts that alluded me, especially trig functions and inverse trig functions. I scheduled a lesson with Mike just before my semester final and within less than 15 minutes (on certain concepts), I completely got it. I just understood it in a whole new way. Mike has a way of presenting and explaining material clearly and concisely. He broke down the concepts and answered questions with full knowledge of the subject matter. I took my final today, and I'm know I did well. I breezed through the problems that were stumping me earlier. Based on this one lesson, I've signed up for weekly lessons and am going to also get help for SAT Math. I'm confident with Mike as a resource that I won't worry about struggling with any math concepts this year.
- Cheryl W. from Overland Park, KS
Mike helped me to understand computer science (python) better. He answered my messages quickly and was great about making availability for us to meet. Mike uses visuals in order to explain difficult concepts and is great at working through complex topics. He is incredibly patient and a very kind guy, I could not have gotten a better tutor!
- Tia M. from San Diego, CA
Mike was a very helpful and patient tutor. He prompted me to examine my code and explain why I wrote what I wrote. He was also clear in his explanations of concepts. Thank you Mike!
- Rebecca E. from Brooklyn, NY
Mike was a great tutor. I needed someone to help me with Linear Algebra, because I was learning online and I was missing so much information. Mike was able to walk me through my problems and show me alternative ways to approach a problem. He was very patient with me, even after asking the same question 3+ times because I was confused. I would 100% recommend Mike and trust me I am a person to read the reviews out of EVERYTHING before I buy, or partake in anything. Will definitely be tutoring with Mike again!
- Holly N. from Athens, GA
Mike is a very calm and really helpful teacher, he is also very understandable. When I have any problems, I?m confident he can always help me. He is one of the best tutors I?ve ever had!
- Jyo T. from Union City, CA
I started off the semester being really lost in a computational modeling class I am required to take as a Cognitive Science major. Mike was incredibly helpful as he guided me through the class for the entirety of the semester. Thanks to our sessions, I was able to solidify my knowledge in Python, concepts in Machine Learning and concepts in probability/statistics. Mike has a way of teaching you things in an extremely valuable manner as he always found ways to make things click really quickly. Would really recommend reaching out to him if you're struggling with anything related to CS or if you're even just looking to gain a great introduction to the field.
- Ingy O. from Berkeley, CA
Throughout my semester, Mike would help me weekly with Calculus work helping me step by step with each concept that I needed help with. He is very patient and listens when I am confused on a specific topic and will help solve any topic I am confused with and answer any questions I need help with. He is very flexible with scheduling and is great tutor both in person and online. Ever since he became my tutor my grades, performance, and understanding of Calculus have greatly improved.
