I have an MS in physical chemistry awarded by Purdue University for work performed in the study of chemical physics. I have successfully completed Michigan State University?s teaching program course work. I am a certified trainer for operation and calibration of analytical and robotic instruments. I have held the following positions: Conejo Valley Tutor; Associate Professor Grand Valley State University Physics; Michigan State University Education Program honor student; Purdue general chemist...

Michael boosted my confidence. Organic chem is terrifying and he is so patient. He explains things in the simplest manner and the biggest thing, he makes sure he knows your problems, concerns before you meet. That is a huge time saver and allows direct focus. I will continue to use Michael and recommend him.

Michael has been helping me to prepare for one of my college finals in Physical Chemistry. He was able to fill in much of the detail my professor did not, and really clarify the material and ideas behind the problems I wanted to work on. My only regret is waiting for finals time to reach out to him! I'm certain that working with him throughout the course would have made what has been a frustrating class experience for me, a much better one. I would highly recommend him!
- Meredith B. from Bronxville, NY
Patient, and knowledge! Great with my daughter and helped her to ugh her chemistry final review! Thank you Michael! Would highly recommend for any student needing chemistry help!

Micheal was very knowledgeable on what I needed help on for AP Physics and was able to effectively explain the concepts. He helped me immensely!

Michael has does a truly exceptional job explaining and breaking down complex mathematical and chemical concepts. He is kind in his approach, thoughtful in his methods, and always reaching for the best way to communicate with our teenage son.
- Kris P. from San Diego, CA
We worked on NMR, for organic chemistry. Solved problems, and he guided me through the reasons why, answered questions. Discussed the science behind the work. Great session.
- Skylar H. from San Diego, CA
Very Patient Tutor. I have been away from math for 21 years and he is making math seem less scary. I feel like it is doable with his assistance. He is flexible and willing to adjust to make students comfortable.

Michael is teaching my son AP physics B/C. I am really happy to find a mentor like him for my son. Not only Michael has great knowledge of the subject but the way he engages is excellent. He let my son know in advance what topic he will be covering, he is going through the concepts; after every session he gives problems and then go over with my son in the following session. I will recommend him anytime for someone who is looking to excell in AP physics

I needed tutoring with organic chemistry 1 and Michael did not necessarily help with learning the material. He seemed to not know the material as well as I'd hoped and seemed like he was learning with me instead of teaching.
- Nicole K. from La Jolla, CA
His tutoring helped me understand certain concepts that hadn't clicked with me before, such as reducing and oxidizing ketones and aldehydes.

Michael is tutoring my son Physical/Molecular Chemistry. Michael has an outstanding ability to communicate very difficult concepts in a simplified manner more often coming up with creative ideas. As an example, he helped my son to use a three dimensional model with beads that helped him to visualize and facilitated a clear understanding of the complex protein and amino acid structure. Michael is patient, passionate, strategic with emphasis on the understanding of the concepts in his tutoring. He is well prepared for tutoring by coming up with a plan that was organized and well thought out with my son . Michael is reliable and conscientious tutor. He provides ongoing feedback as well. I would highly recommend him! Best wishes!

My son is in all Advanced and IB classes in high school, so when looking for a tutor I shopped around a bit. Michael D. has been a blessing to us. He was very accommodating with our schedule and communicates with us very well. My Son's comment was "He really knows his stuff". My son is an "A" student in Physics, partly because of Michael's ability to explain the subject better to him and also because Michael really has helped him with his confidence of Physics. I would STRONGLY recommend Michael as a tutor.

I had the opportunity to work with Michael for a few months for college physics. For one, I had no connection to this particular course. After 15 years of leaving college I had decided to return to school to earn my diploma. Michael understood what I was trying to accomplish during each lesson and provided a roadmap to how to study and what to really focus on based on the reading material and online quizzes assigned to me. He would constantly test my knowledge on the all basics of physics because each lesson moving forward was connected to previous lessons recently studied. Michael specializes in math, chemistry, and physics and I could tell he has a passion for these subject based on how detailed he was problem solving various questions pertaining to various assignments. Very blessed and grateful for the opportunity to work with him and I wish him the best of luck through his future endeavors.
- Andre C. from Calabasas, CA
My daughter was having trouble with her chemistry honor labs. After one session with Michael, he was able to answer questions that her previous tutors couldn't. He was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. Thank you Michael!
