I'm enthusiastic about tutoring -- I've been teaching and tutoring, as time permitted, starting when I was a graduate student.

My BA is in Maths and Computer Science, my PhD is in Physics, I did postdoctoral work in Biophysics, I was on the Physiology faculty at a university in Canada, and now I work in the Biotech field here in the Bay Area.

My approach when tutoring is to find a way to bring the student to that "aha" moment when things become clear. Not just to become clear for its own sa...
Michael is patient with my sophomore and so gracious with his time. We so appreciate him working though the algebra and geometry struggles our son is having !

We have been working with Michael to help our son, who was struggling in his AP Physics class. Our son had a lot of trouble understanding his teacher. Michael was able to explain things clearly and help our son learn to set up problems correctly. We also saw a big boost in our son?s confidence in the class. Michael really cares about his students, is patient and kind, and is always on time. We would recommend Michael without hesitation.

Michael is an excellent physics tutor. He cares and is extremely patient. My son is in 11th grade and is taking AP Physics. Michael was able to get him up to speed quickly and improve his knowledge and grade.

He is very nice. He is taking the time to go back and help my son on things that were challenging in the past, while helping him stay focused on what he is learning now. He is really interested in helping him learn on his terms which is great. It really makes my son feel like he has his best interest at heart.

Michael is very patient with my girl. We just had two lessons. I will keep you posted as we progress. He helped us to find additional materials for my girl to student.
- Janet J. from San Mateo, CA
My son wanted a few days of tutoring right before his physics final exam to clarify several new concepts. I needed to find a physics expert fast that could jump right in and get the job done. Michael was quick to respond to my "last minute" request and was able to provide two tutoring sessions right before the final exam. My son said the sessions were very helpful and that they helped him understand the concepts much better.

Michael is the best tutor we've ever had. He helped my daughter raise her grade in precalculus in a very patient, kind and understanding manner. Our schedule was very crazy, but Michael always managed to help her when needed. Two thumbs up!
- Christina J. from Burlingame, CA
Michael was very honest with me before I hired him that astronomy was not his core expertise. He reviewed my course material before making a commitment to work with me which I appreciated. He felt confident that he would be able to apply his math and physics background to the content which he did. Our session helped me better understand the material and prepare for an exam.

Michael taught and showed me in depth how MARIE assembly language works. I liked that he was very informative and experienced in this area among other subjects which helped me accomplish having the ability to finish my work fast and receive an outstanding grade, thanks Michael! :D
