"English Tutor; B.A. in Journalism"
Please consider me to tutor your child student -- or to tutor you, as an adult -- in learning how to speak, write and read English, since I have an excellent command of the English language. I was a volunteer tutor at an after-school homework program, "Homework 'n Hoops", through the Minneapolis public school system (at the Bethlehem Community Center).

Thank you so much Michael for your timely help. My son was struggling in Calculus III course and was losing interest in this subject. You helped him regain his confidence and he was able to improve his score by 12 points within 2 months. Thank you so much for filling his gaps in the fundamentals and making him think through the problem.
I highly recommend Michael for all Calculus level courses. Thanks again.

"University of Chicago Philosopher Ready to Tutor!"
I have a keen eye for details and I'm usually the first person my colleagues and friends turn to when they need critique.
I have mastered the fundamentals of technical writing but also I value eloquence and beauty in a turn of phrase. I can make any paper not only good on a basic level but great in that it will dazzle with its style and subject matter.
Also, I have taken a year long course with one of the premier writing consultants in America. Larry McEnerney of the University of Chicago. He is the director of the writing program and not only specializes in teaching academics how to ... More
Vimal worked with my son on AP Statistics and in just a short time helped him understand many concepts that previously had been incomprehensible, even after months of classroom instruction. Vimal quickly established a very good rapport with my son. He has an impressive understanding of the subject and the ability to explain things in several different ways, making it all more accessible to the student. I was also impressed by the professionalism and alacrity of his communications with me. I never had any trouble reaching Vimal, and he was proactive in reaching out to us. Vimal did a great job with my son, and I would recommend him enthusiastically.

I have several years of tutoring experience in Calculus. I tutoring AB Calc and BC Calc while still in high school, taught Calc I, II, and III while in college.

As a former student who passed the AP test (I got a 5) and a former Teaching Assistant in College for Calculus, I understand the theories, the applications, the knowledge required to pass, and the types of questions asked on the exam. I can confidently say that I will be able to help any student master Calculus. ... More
