I've worked with high achieving students at one of NYC's top Gifted and Talented Programs. I've worked with the diverse population of Jackson Heights, struggling,...
Mike has been the most incredible tutor for my 2 high school boys, for English, History and SAT prep. He has so much passion for literature and perspective for history, and for my boys who always preferred math he has made these subjects fresh and exciting. For the last three years he has been a mainstay and essential part of our schedule. He consistently pushes the boys to really think about their work and improve their writing. As our oldest heads off to college with the younger one close behind, I know they are such capable writers thanks to Mike!

Mike has been helping me write case studies for my professional portfolio. During our lessons, he has given me strategic guidance on how to structure my ideas and helped me to choose the right words for formulating clear, concise sentences. All of these insights helped me strike a balance between my professional and personal writing. With Mike?s exceptional talent as a writer and teacher, combined with his broad knowledge of many subjects, I have been making consistent improvements in my writing. I look forward to continue working with Mike.

Michael has been tutoring my son who is homeschooled for the last 5 months 2-3 sessions per week. He is a very patient, knowledgeable and dynamic teacher who has sparked my teenagers interest in English again. Michael has put together all of the content for his sessions, providing him with interesting literature to read, in particular wonderful short stories. He challenges him to read texts closely and think deeply about their content. Michael has also taught my son grammar, which I found he had not adequately learned while at school. One highlight was my son having the opportunity to attend and review an off-Broadway play and actually have his review published on a blog!
- Virginia S. from New York, NY
Michael is an amazing tutor. He has the best energy and relates perfectly to young students. He makes the topics relevant and really wants them to succeed. He is willing to speak to teachers too so that the student is doing exactly what is required of them. He is smart, talented and someone you would trust with your children.

Michael N. assessed my son's writing from the school year. He assigned a fun exercise, where my son had to describe in a piece of fruit using sensory words. It was the type of exercise my son responded well to. My son enjoyed the lesson and is looking forward for Michael to tutor again!

Michael is amazing. He wasted no time in getting to know my son's interests and his weakness. Michael is knowledgeable. He told my son some interesting facts on World War II. A subject my son enjoys. Michael recommended some books on World War II which he started reading on the way home. There is another book that Michael recommended and my son takes time to read it everyday. He patient and effective when teaching. He keeps the child interested in what they are doing. My son left the tutoring session confident and happy to have met Michael. In one session i have seen a change in my son. A happy mommy. Thank you Michael :)
