I mostly work with students now on the ACT & SAT.

For the ACT, we will go over content that you must know for English & Math. For ex, there are specific reasons when to use a comma. Most likely, you were never taught that. In order to improve your score on the English section, you must learn and study that content. We will work on specific strategies for the Reading and Science sections. Once you feel confident with that information, we will work on concepts such as time management, ...
We had our first lesson with Michael today around ACT and he seemed pretty knowledgeable about it. He came across as friendly and humorous and I think we?d like to schedule more lessons with him in the future to prepare for the upcoming ACT.

My sophomore has been learning SAT reading from Michael. He is patient in teaching and it?s been only few classes but my daughter said she could see a quick improvement in timing and accuracy.

Johnny enjoys working with Michael and is learning loads of information about the SAT. Michael provides detail summary of the lesson and things that need extra attention. Keep it going!

Great work, nick already notices a difference and is wanting more lessons. I am sure nicks next act exam will show improvement and higher scores.

Micheal is very specific on subject matter which is important for teens. He identified areas needed improvement and worked on those with specific exercises and feedback. His tutoring style fits the very busy schedule of high school students. He took the time to learn about his student in first lesson which was helpful. We look for way working with him more.

Michael helped my 16 year old high school junior with an involved project for his English Honors course; breaking down concepts into digestible and retainable bites so my son was able to take the direction and retain it. My son really responded to his style which built instant credibility. We will be using Michael again for sure.

Thanks so much for being so supportive and patient with my Daughter!! You are an excellent tutor. She will definitely continue to work with you on SAT/ ACT and Thank you for the extra help in Mathematics.

Our first meeting. My daughter liked Michael?s approach. We will continue with him in preparation for the ACT/SAT tests

Before This tutor , we have tried three other SAT tutors and never achieved any meaningful improvement. My son instantly enjoyed the first class offered by Michael and totally got the point . He has seen progress so obviously within a few classes. I would definitely recommend this tutor to anyone who is trying to get improvement on reading / writing score from around 600 to the 750+ Zone Before the test date. You will see big improvement within a few classes! Best SAT tutor money investment ever!!

Michael is what one would call a Subject Matter Expert in ACT tutoring. His techniques and strategies are on-point. His ability to simplify complex concepts are simply amazing. I look forward to applying the techniques I've learned during our sessions to improve my ACT score.

Michael W. assisted me with preparation for the ACT. I had previously scored very well on the math portions of the SAT, but needed assistance with the English and Reading portion. Michael helped me focus on the areas I needed. We worked on time management, and he gave me pointers to help me get the best score. I ultimately received a score of 34, with a 35 on the English portion. His assistance definitely helped me improve. I would recommend him to other students looking to raise their score.

Michael was a great tutor - He was very flexible with his scheduling and gave me tips for improving my score on the English portion of the SAT - He worked through reading passages with me to build up my endurance and maintain focus - Can't say enough good things about Michael W and I really appreciated his help
- Steven G. from Horseheads, NY
Michael helped tutor my younger brother with SAT prep via online sessions. We tried out a couple tutors and Michael was by far the best. He was prepared and engaging. We saw a significant improvement in SAT reading/writing scores with only a few sessions.
- James M. from Houston, TX
Thank Michael for tutoring my son with SAT English. He had gotten a much better handle on how to approach SAT questions. A few more lesson with you and he will be well prepared for the SAT test in October.
- Chris K. from Grayslake, IL
Michael entered the session and immediately tried to make you comfortable by getting the idea of your interests and who you are as a person. Not only did this break the ice, he got the idea of the prompts I?d prefer to cover in the SAT reading, going into one of the narratives and covering the questions. It?s very evident Michael was knowledgeable in the test, and would be even if you wanted general help for just a class. Trying out his strategies helped understand how I should look at the test and read the questions to at least navigate in the right direction of the answer. Taking his advice led to significant improvement in my performance. Even when you got things wrong it didn?t feel embarrassing to admit to it, the open environment made it easy to grasp as to why your thought process was wrong. Michael knows how to teach and strive for the best result, and is a great teacher.

This was only their first lesson and there were technical difficulties. However, my son said that he was understanding and eager to help him succeed! We are looking forward to working with Michael.
- Yvonne K. from Metairie, LA
Michael has taught me many strategies for reading comprehension. For example, in older passages, a strategy I learned was breaking up the passage in sections and writing summaries on the side of them to make it easier to look back for.
- Julio R. from Saint Petersburg, FL
Michael addressed and answered all my questions. I am going to contact him for my final paper review. He thought me some short cut to use on the computer and word I didn't know and help me with suggestion for a stronger paper. Thanks Michael
- Chris M. from Houston, TX
Easy to work with, and really helpful. She is doing so much better with ACT math! Michael has a great way of teaching, she is learning, and retaining he is instruction.
- Patricia K. from Somerville, MA
My teenage daughter (I mention this because she is sensitive to how people talk to her) said Michael was encouraging, supportive, and knowledgeable. She said she got a lot from him in her sessions and anticipates improving her SAT score due to his guidance. We could not ask for more.
