Mike is a brilliant, dedicated, passionate tutor who excels in teaching complicated concepts in a clear, simple manner. He has tremendously helped my daughter conceptually learn what she needs to know for her computer science class, and he continually challenges and encourages her to really understand the material at a deep level, not surface level. Mike is a rare gem, and we are so lucky to have found him!

Mike has been a great tutor for my son. He’s professional, knowledgeable and patient. He pays attention to the details and is meticulous in his approach and expectations, but this has taught my son to produce simple, clean code, which is important developing programs. My son has benefited greatly from working with Mike and is well prepared for more advanced classes and even an internship or coding job, while still in high school. We are so happy we found Mike, and have recommended him to some other friends, who have also benefited from his experience and methods. If you are looking for a tutor that is thorough, competent and thoughtful, Mike is the guy!

Mike has been helping me to succeed in my coding course. He often uses real world examples to find ways of relating the material to something concrete and understandable. He encourages and helps you to use problem-solving skills. As a tutee, you are an active participant in the lesson, and not just an observer/listener.

I’ve been working with Mike for months to improve my knowledge of Python. I truly appreciate that his depth of knowledge means that I’m never stuck, and at the same time given the space to wrestle with a problem long enough to understand it more completely. It’s also fantastic that he is flexible enough to continue to adapt how we teach to both my goals and how I am best able to learn a particular topic. Additionally, his focus isn’t just on memorizing the language, but helping me think like a computer scientist which is already giving me the capacity to code independently.

We feel extremely fortunate to have found Mike as a computer tutor for our 7th grader. Mike is knowledgeable, responsible and a very talented teacher. He instantly knows what his student’s needs are and works patiently to elevate them. I’m seeing a difference in my son’s confidence in computers and also love for the subject.

Mike led me through an introduction to data science including scatter plots, linear regressions, transformed variables, histograms, and KDEs. I had only a little prior knowledge before working with him and feel I have strong grasp on the material now. I’d recommend him to anyone eager to learn.

Helped establish good foundation for future learning. Very thorough explanations of concepts and well prepared for session. Skips no steps and moves at appropriate pace for different experience levels. Left with clear goals for next session and very good overall.
