In my lessons, I aim to understand what my students are understanding and what they are struggling with. I then tune the rest of the lesson toward ironing out any areas where understanding might be lacking through giving germane examples, asking probing questions, and showing how areas of weak understanding are related to areas of strong understanding.
After getting my BS in Mathematics with a 4.0 in the relevant coursework, I received a perfect score on the Quant section of the GRE. (I had also gotten perfects on the math sections of the SAT and ACT). While studying as an undergrad, I tutored dozens and dozens of students in mathematics and statistics.
I am a highly experienced premier tutor with a specialty in mathematics, statistics, and standardized test preparation. I have tutored multiple students who went on to score in the high 160s on the GRE Quantitative Section, and can boast of a perfect 5-star rating on Wyzant.com, a popular online tutoring platform. My experience, teaching acumen, and qualifications make me the ideal applicant for this tutoring position.

“...was a GRE GOD... he was amazing with quant. After only one 3-hour session with him, I was able to improve my score by 5 points. I was incredibly happy.”
-Scott, 168 GRE Quant score
“Michael helped me wrap my head around some fundamental concepts relating to descriptive statistics, specifically the standard deviation of one draw of a deck of cards. He walked me through the steps and helped me visualize what was going on at each step. His tutoring style is friendly and patient. I would recommend Michael every time.”
