Mike's Bio & Tutoring Experience


I have held a number of tutoring positions that have helped helped me to learn how to effectively work with students. I've worked as a Lab Instructor for undergraduate Astronomy classes for the past 2 years. Here, I taught approximately 18 students each semester in a formal classroom setting. In this position I also gained experience and an understanding of grading students' work. I've worked as a Physics tutor for the SUNY Geneseo physics department for the past 2 years as well. In this position, students would come to me during my assigned hours for help with homework questions or with their studies. This was a more informal, one on one tutoring position where I worked directly with students with and without physics backgrounds. I worked as TA for an Introduction to Mathematical Proofs class where I graded students' assignments and also helped them in developing their proof writing skills. I'm very personable and I really enjoy helping students to understand math and science. The "aha" moment feels great as a student (trust me, I'm well aware of this) and I believe seeing a student reach this moment is even more rewarding!
