Mike: Math & Science

Math & Science Tutor

Background
I have a Bachelor of Science in math from the University of Minnesota Institute of Technology, cum laude. I’ve been a classroom teacher for 19 years, serving as the math/science department chair at Christ’s Household of Faith School in St. Paul. I’ve served on the board of directors for the Minnesota State High School Mathematics League (MSHSML), spending six years heading the problem writing team, and seven years as the head coach of the Minnesota All-State Math Team. I’m a 2015 inductee into the MSHSML Hall of Fame.

Goals
I’ve conducted numerous workshops around the world covering how to challenge and engage math students, from the struggling to the gifted, the writing and implementation of mathematically-rich problems, and the proper pedagogical use of educational technology. I have extensive experience in individual tutoring in all areas of secondary mathematics and sciences, as well as SAT/ACT/AP prep and other subjects.
