Then I work with you to fix your specific struggle areas, with ultimate goal of improve your grades.

What you can expect from tutoring

Grade Improvements

Almost all students improve by at least one letter grade. Many students improve by more than one letter grade.

Academic Confidence

When students start doing well in a class they’ve struggled in before, they start to develop confidence that they can do well in all classes.


As weird as it may sounds, students actually start to enjoy chemistry & find it interesting when they understand it.

There are other tutors out there. What makes Michael different?

Specialized Chemistry


Unlike other tutors who teach every subject imaginable, I ONLY tutor chemistry. What this means for you is that I can explain concepts in multiple ways until you “get it”. With over 4000 hours of chemistry tutoring under my belt, you can be confident that I will be able to answer any questions you ask. I have helped students with problems ranging from those who were so far behind they didn’t know where to start to those who just couldn’t make the jump for a B to an A. And I can help you reach your goal, whatever they may be.

Guidance Beyond


I don’t focus solely on comprehension of the class material. Acing the class involves more than just understanding the material. Sure comprehension is important, but if you can’t apply the material, then your grade will suffer. If you can’t deconstruct a problem, and figure out which concept to use, your grade will plummet. If you can’t select the right answer among answers that all sound somewhat correct, your grade will drop. Etc. I help you improve on all these areas so that when the exam comes around, you’ll be ready to rock it. 

Learn How to Study


I won’t just teach you chemistry. I will also teach you a study system that maximizes your efficiency so you finish your homework faster. Using this system, you’ll be able study less while still get good grades. Personally I used this study system at UC Berkeley and it allowed me to get a 3.93 GPA while only studying for two hours a day. This system is extremely easy to implement and it will help you get higher grades in high school and in college. Most tutors don’t even teach you basic study skills.
