Greetings parents and students,

I graduated with an AS in Science with an emphasis in Physics and Education from SUNY Orange, a BS in Geology from SUNY New Paltz, and am currently working on my Masters Degree. I am currently a Lab Instructor for the Department of Geology at SUNY New Paltz. My research as an undergraduate involved analyzing the geometry of geologic structures, along with the chemistry of the rocks, in order to determine inferred depositional environments. With my knowledge a...
So happy to have found someone to help my son learn to study for his earth science tests! He has always done well in school but needs that push to study before a test and this has been a great way to focus him!
- Krista R. from Lockport, NY
Excellent first session with our son. Michael reviewed previously studied concepts. Homework was completed and plans for the next sessions were discussed with my husband and I. Very thorough session. This was the start of the journey toward preparing for the Algebra Regents. Our son was very pleased with the help he received.
- Carla H. from Middletown, NY
Michael has been tutoring both of my boys in math and earth science all year and he ALWAYS comes fully enthused and puts fourth tremendous effort. Highly recommended.

Michael has been a big help to my son with his Algebra 2 course this year. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and consistent. Excellent experience! Thank you so much, Michael!
- Jacquelyn K. from Newburgh, NY
Micheal is tutoring our son for the SAT. He tutored our son in the math and science regents and all went well. I don't think we would have had the successful outcome without Michael's help.
- Vanessa D. from Washingtonville, NY
Helped break down every step and very patient. Showed me different way to solve problems. Michael was very good with his rates per hour also. Michael also has a set plan for his student depending on the person level of math
- Ron S. from Fishkill, NY
Micheal is very professional and consistent, he demonstrates that he is very well verse in multiple areas that are seemingly impressive. So far so good. He's even showing my daughter how her answer's maybe right but if a teacher is being overly anal of some problems this can become difficult for the student. Micheal was able to pull up my daughter's spirit and let her know that she was right but you may have to be specific at times. We are off to a great start and we look forward to hopefully have him tutor her in Science as well.
- Zoya G. from Wallkill, NY
Michael is really helping my daughter understand algebra. He is breaking it down for in a method she can understand. He is extremely patient with her and is teaching her at her own pace.
- Elizabeth C. from Walden, NY
Michael started by getting an understanding of my son's needs/capabilities by working on fractions. He was very clear and worked well with my son, who liked Michael very much. This was just the very first session, so I'm looking forward to see how things progress.
- Karen B. from Wallkill, NY
Michael D. has been tutoring my 15 year old son for the last couple of weeks. His patience and teaching techniques are proving to be very effective with him. Since Michael began tutoring him he has shown great improvement and is less stressed when going to class.
- Damaris T. from Walden, NY
Michael tutors my 11 year old twins. My son can be very unfocused at times, but Michael is extremely patient with him and he has a good system to get through to him. It definitely works because he has soared with Michael's tutoring. Both of my kids are doing well in school but Michael has enhanced it. their grade point average has increased since working with Michael and he is such a nice person the kids love him.
- Endora S. from Newburgh, NY
My daughter's first session with Michael was great. He's patient and knowledgeable. Can't wait for our next lesson with him.
- Christina U. from Wappingers Falls, NY
He was able to sit with us on short notice and help focus on the key issues we were facing.
- Susan S. from New Windsor, NY
Michael helped my son in Earth Science understand concepts that my son previously did not understand. He has more self-confidence as a result. Thank you!
- Chris A. from Wallkill, NY
Spoke in a way to make my son feel comfortable and at his level. Very neat notes left with my son to review. Will definitely have him back.
- Gina P. from Poughquag, NY
Michael always came prepared with pre-written lessons and was very patient with me the whole time. Thanks to him I was finally able to pass the math portion of the Multi-subject (7-12) CST!!
- Kathleen L. from Highland, NY
Michael was patient in ensuring my daughter understood the material he was explaining to her. She felt comfortable with his teaching style.
- Kathy P. from Fort Lee, NJ
My daughter who is going into her junior year, received a 90 in her geometry class as her final grade, but she did not pass the regents. She received a 54 on the geometry common core and a 56 on the "old" geometry. My daughter is very serious about her grades and was very upset when she received her scores, she didn't understand how she received a 90% in class grade and such low scores on the regent exams. I must admit, I was a little confused also and did not know how to answer her question. Michael held 12 tutoring sessions with my daughter, he started with the a basic review of geometry eventually covering everything they covered during the school year. He was very patient, very thorough, and very understanding. Michael was open to questions. He was really good about explaining the whole concept and in doing so he made sure that she understood the "why". My daughter re-took her regents exam last week, and we just received the grades......I am super happy to report that she received an 84% on the "old" geometry regents, and a big beautiful 88% on the common core regent exam! My daughters confidence in herself has been restored and for that I am grateful. Thank you Michael for the time you spent helping my daughter to understand the "whys" in geometry. I cannot put into words how grateful we are. Thanks for building up my daughters confidence and thanks for bringing back her smile. You. Are. The. Best.
