Michael S. of Arlington VA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Michael S.
Gender: Male   Age: 26-30
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have over 700 hours of tutoring experience with over 30 Elementary, Jr. and High School students in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.

I continue to thrive as a solid tutor for Math, English, SAT and ACT Prep, SOL and other state administered test reviews, High School Placement Tests, and foreign languages. I have worked proudly with students of all skill levels. I also have had successful experiences helping students diagnosed with ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, and dyslexia. With these special cases, and even with students who are struggling, I focus on improving weak memories with special techniques, timed breaks, and studying in increments to make sure the child is absorbing the material.

I also have had great success in becoming an excellent working Civil Engineer and passed the Maryland State Professional Engineering Exam on my first try with 350 hours of study-time in 2009; I have an excellent understanding of the hard work and dedication needed for my students to excel at major exams, projects and term papers. I believe in hard work and preparation. I received a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the U. of MD, College Park.

I'm offering a complimentary tutoring session for all new parents. This session is a sample of the tutoring service I offer. Please contact me anytime.
