I mostly work with students now on the ACT & SAT.

For the ACT, we will go over content that you must know for English & Math. For ex, there are specific reasons when to use a comma. Most likely, you were never taught that. In order to improve your score on the English section, you must learn and study that content. We will work on specific strategies for the Reading and Science sections. Once you feel confident with that information, we will work on concepts such as time management, ...

Michael has been working with my child on SAT /ACT and has been doing a great job. He is very patient and has knowledge in what he teaches. He is punctual and had good communication skills. We highly recommend him.

Easy to understand, practical knowledge, very good tutor. Able to jump in and tutor a teen who didn't know where to start on SAT prep. Highly recommended. Easy to schedule and reach.

My son has been working with Michael for his SAT prep work. Michael is very engaging and has given my son great test taking strategies. His communication with us is great regarding next appointments and what they have worked on.

Really know subject well aside from just English/reading etc. but also test taking skills. Also clearly cares more about student improving rather than constant tutoring sessions to get money.
- Mitchell S. from Highland Park, IL
Michael helped me study for the ACT, specifically the math test. He had a thorough knowledge of all math concepts and experience with the problems. He suggested a test practice book that allowed me to study on my own. He responded promptly to my communication and was able to work around my schedule. Highly recommend Michael!!

My son and nephew are both preparing for the ACT with Michael. My son didn?t want a tutor. He thought he had it all in the bag. But after the first session, he realized how much he didn?t know and how much Michael could help him. They are both excited to learn from Michael!
- Katie W. from Eagle, ID
My child responds very well to Michael's teaching style. As much as my child doesn't like math, she really looking forward to her lessons with Michael.
- Larisa S. from Lake Zurich, IL
I cant say enough about Michael, after years and years of one failed tutor after another Michael has somehow been able to keep our child engaged and moving forward. I will go as far to say that he has and will continue to change her life in a positive way helping her to complete her academic goals like no one else. Michael has managed to open doors and provide access to oportunities for our child that were never imagined and for that we are eternally grateful. Thank you Michael.

Three years ago my older daughter wanted to raise her ACT score and we hired Michael. After his sessions with her, her scores in every single area went up - she gained 7 points in the science section alone! Her overall score was raised 4 points. We were so pleased, we just recently hired him again to help our younger daughter. I highly recommend Michael. He explains not just how to answer questions correctly, but talks about overall test taking strategies in general. My younger daughter has had two sessions and after each time I've asked her if she thinks it has helped her and she said "Yes - for sure!". Michael is the best!

My daughter's first lesson with Michael went very well. She liked his calm demeanor and the way he explained the ACT content. She left feeling motivated. Michael was on time and reviewed how he tutors so we were all on the same page.

Hit on all punctuation topics needed for the English portion of the exam in great detail. I am left with all the matterial I need to study.
- Ryan N. from Shrub Oak, NY
It is too early to determine if Michael's tutoring is effective - just 1.5 hours so far. No complaints. Michael has an easily understood voice and seems to be patient and attentive with my daughter. She will be taking the ACT test in about two months, so the tutoring is geared toward the goal of achieving a higher grade than the previous test results. Michael is teaching a strategy to answer the easier, more obvious questions first, then go back and answer the more involved questions if time permits. :-)

Michael helped my daughter with her public speaking skills for a school-related endeavor. We saw improvement in her program after just one session. My daughter was pleased too, and is looking forward to working with Michael again.
- Kimberly H. from Palatine, IL
My son was very happy with what he got out of the lesson with Michael and plans on doing it again (for ACT prep).
- Mark B. from Barrington, IL
Michael went over strategies for the ACT science and explained how to interpret the charts and graphs. He explained how to practice and when to time himself to my son. He also went over some of the math portion and how to prepare for it. Very helpful!
- Suzanne L. from Panama City, FL
After just a few weeks, my daughter has gained a ton of self confidence and learned tips and techniques that she hopes to use to significantly improve her ACT score. We'll gladly post her results after the test in a couple of weeks. Thanks Michael!
- George A. from Independence, KY
Michael is working with my daughter to prepare her for an upcoming ACT test. She feels like she has already learned a great deal in just two hours working with Michael. She not only is gaining some important skills, but her confidence has also increased!
- Jennifer F. from Durango, CO
Michael is a great tutor. He's very patient and understanding. From the first session, I understood the topic much better. I am super glad I found him.
- Saida G. from Wheeling, IL
Michael did a great job of being prepared and taking the time to better understand my son's weaknesses with writing. I have used him numerous times because I think he is a great value and excellent teacher. He is a thoughtful and very bright young man.
- Ed R. from Glenview, IL
Michael was awesome when I met with him! Although I only had one session, he had so much energy. He was funny and made the session that much more enjoyable and I learned a lot from just an hour and a half with him! Definitely will be tutoring with him more, highly recommend!!
