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, ...
I cant say enough about Michael, after years and years of one failed tutor after another Michael has somehow been able to keep our child engaged and moving forward. I will go as far to say that he has and will continue to change her life in a positive way helping her to complete her academic goals like no one else. Michael has managed to open doors and provide access to oportunities for our child that were never imagined and for that we are eternally grateful. Thank you Michael.

Three years ago my older daughter wanted to raise her ACT score and we hired Michael. After his sessions with her, her scores in every single area went up - she gained 7 points in the science section alone! Her overall score was raised 4 points. We were so pleased, we just recently hired him again to help our younger daughter. I highly recommend Michael. He explains not just how to answer questions correctly, but talks about overall test taking strategies in general. My younger daughter has had two sessions and after each time I've asked her if she thinks it has helped her and she said "Yes - for sure!". Michael is the best!

My daughter's first lesson with Michael went very well. She liked his calm demeanor and the way he explained the ACT content. She left feeling motivated. Michael was on time and reviewed how he tutors so we were all on the same page.

Hit on all punctuation topics needed for the English portion of the exam in great detail. I am left with all the matterial I need to study.

It is too early to determine if Michael's tutoring is effective - just 1.5 hours so far. No complaints. Michael has an easily understood voice and seems to be patient and attentive with my daughter. She will be taking the ACT test in about two months, so the tutoring is geared toward the goal of achieving a higher grade than the previous test results. Michael is teaching a strategy to answer the easier, more obvious questions first, then go back and answer the more involved questions if time permits. :-)

Michael helped my daughter with her public speaking skills for a school-related endeavor. We saw improvement in her program after just one session. My daughter was pleased too, and is looking forward to working with Michael again.

My son was very happy with what he got out of the lesson with Michael and plans on doing it again (for ACT prep).
- Mark B. from Barrington, IL
My child responds very well to Michael's teaching style. As much as my child doesn't like math, she really looking forward to her lessons with Michael.
- Larisa S. from Buffalo Grove, IL
Michael went over strategies for the ACT science and explained how to interpret the charts and graphs. He explained how to practice and when to time himself to my son. He also went over some of the math portion and how to prepare for it. Very helpful!

After just a few weeks, my daughter has gained a ton of self confidence and learned tips and techniques that she hopes to use to significantly improve her ACT score. We'll gladly post her results after the test in a couple of weeks. Thanks Michael!

Michael is working with my daughter to prepare her for an upcoming ACT test. She feels like she has already learned a great deal in just two hours working with Michael. She not only is gaining some important skills, but her confidence has also increased!

Michael is a great tutor. He's very patient and understanding. From the first session, I understood the topic much better. I am super glad I found him.
- Saida G. from Wheeling, IL
Michael did a great job of being prepared and taking the time to better understand my son's weaknesses with writing. I have used him numerous times because I think he is a great value and excellent teacher. He is a thoughtful and very bright young man.
- Ed R. from Glenview, IL
Michael was awesome when I met with him! Although I only had one session, he had so much energy. He was funny and made the session that much more enjoyable and I learned a lot from just an hour and a half with him! Definitely will be tutoring with him more, highly recommend!!
- Ashley L. from Buffalo Grove, IL
Michael is an excellent tutor. If you are truly trying to work, then he will provide the best help. He is very qualified for this job, and he knows exactly what he is talking about. He is quick with replying back, and I even got a tutoring session the next day. The only problem is that like any of the tutors on here, it is expensive, and time is a time crunch. The hour went by so fast! But definitely worth the money.

This is the guy you want! He was patient and his tutoring helped me get a grade of 90 out of 100 on a geography assignment. I wholeheartedly recommend him.
- Rona L. from Madera, CA
Michael worked well with our son on a few subjects. He was positive, motivating and provided post session study guidelines. Our son's grades improved rapidly.
- Bill C. from Libertyville, IL
Mike was very patient with my son who is in 8th grade. He gave him great ideas on making the subject he was tutoring more relatable. Would highly recommend him.
- Lisa T. from Mundelein, IL
We felt Michael was making some good progress with our daughter but he was too hard to communicate with - ONLY by email and too long between them. We also tried Skype which was a disaster. Nice guy, good tutor - just was not working for us logistically.
- Gwen M. from Berwyn, IL
Michael is a great tutor! He helped my daughter with her homework and gave her a lot of tips on how to study. He also gave her advice on how to approach test taking and helped her understand her strengths in her learning style.
