Mike the Math, Computer Science and Physics Tutor

I tutor math, computer science and physics. I have experience tutoring high school and college students. I have also developed educational events (treasure hunts) for elementary school children. I earned my B.S. in Mathematics from Michigan State University. I have 20 years experience as a mathematician, software engineer and executive for the DOD and in the financial industry. My approach to tutoring is to work with the student to determine exactly where they are having a problem and t... [more]

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience working with young children ages 5 and up. I utilize an interactive, hands-on approach to engage younger students. I often develop puzzles or games that demonstrate the material and provide a fun basis for a more detailed conversation about the material. I am also familiar with the Common Core curriculum. I believe that Common Core's focus on conceptual learning provides a stronger basis for more advanced learning. This is especially true in Mathematics.


Discrete Math

I have education in discrete mathematics and formal logic. I also have extensive experience implementing discrete mathematical concepts in a professional setting. I have utilized discrete mathematics in designing state machines, game theory, programming and cryptography.


Computer Programming

I have over 20 years of experience developing Object-Oriented software. I have extensive experience with Java and C++. I have designed large scale distributed systems for the DOD and private industry that adhere to The Object Group's Architectural Framework (TOGAF). I have tutored and mentored people in the use of technology throughout my career.


Computer Science

Throughout my career I have worked with virtually every aspect of Computer Science: analysis, design, development, documentation, debugging, security, maintenance and architecture. I have designed and implemented systems on mainframes, UNIX boxes, PCs and network devices. I have mentored and tutored students on these topics throughout my career.
