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, ...
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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I sat in my son first lesson he had with Michael. Michael is very knowledgeable and methodical with his approach to tackling the SAT reading. He went through strategies and its application. He was thorough and engaging to ensure that my son was following him throughout the lesson. More importantly, Nathan felt Michael was helping him honed in his reading skills specifically toward taking the test. He indicated Michael went in depth with the reading sections in subsequent lessons which he found to be very helpful. Overall, Michael is engaging, relatable, and a great tutor to work.
