Top Tutor for Math/AFOQT/ASVAB/HESI/TEAS/ACCUPLACER
I've helped an AFOQT student raise his Pilot score from 33 to 98, one improve his Math score by 62 points, one elevate his Math score from 39 to 76 after 1 lesson, an ASVAB student go from 22 to 59 in less than 2 weeks of tutoring, one TEAS student earn a 100% Math score, and one raise her Math from 59 to 84.
Preparing for timed tests requires a different skill set. I teach students to use mental math, logic, and common sense to improve their time management, which leads to higher scores. I...

Extremely knowledgeable and patient
Michael was able to break down mathematic equations very easily and able to understand. He gives very helpful tips that can cut down in your time for a problem and make it significantly faster and easier. He starts off with simple equations and they’ll gradually get more advance, but he gives detailed explanations and tips to solve the problems and explains why.
Aedin, 4 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Aedin. Test prep for the AFOQT and other aptitude tests requires one to think "outside the box." A person cannot approach the math problems on a timed test like he or she would those on a high school or college test. While you may have an hour to ninety minutes for a high school or college math test, you need to be able to answer 25 questions in approximately 25 minutes on the AFOQT, or a problem per minute. I examine every AFOQT math problem to determine the quickest way to solve them in the time allotted. With your advanced math skills, this is probably the only extra help you need to score very well on the test.
Knowledgeable and friendly!
Micheal was extremely knowledgeable. He was able to effectively and efficiently go through multiple word problems during our session which helped me understand in depth how to solve each one of them.
Wanda, 1 lesson with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you so much, Wanda. I am glad that you found our lesson productive. It is always my goal to maximize the amount of time we have in each session to cover as much material as possible.
AFOQT
Michael is amazing. Definitely worth it. I’ve had a few different tutors and Michael was the best by far. He explained everything so well and was patient with me.
Brittany, 2 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for the positive feedback, Brittany. I exhibit the same patience with students that I would want someone to show me if the roles are reversed.
Definitely recommend for students needing ASVAB assistance
Michael assisted my nephew with studying for math to increase his ASVAB score. We started tutoring in June with hopes of retaking the ASVAB in September. My nephew scored a 25 and needed a 31 to enlist. Michael made math understandable for nephew and was patient with him during lessons. Due to unforeseen circumstances, my nephew was forced to take the ASVAB in August and I am proud to say he scored to the required 31 and will be enlisting. We can’t thank Michael enough and I would definitely recommend him to anyone desiring to increase their ASVAB score. (We had 9 sessions)
Shana, 6 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you so much for the positive review. I am so happy that Jaylon passed his ASVAB exam. Some of the most rewarding experiences I have enjoyed from tutoring have been hearing that another student has acheived his or her goal to enlist in the military, become an officer in the military, or be accepted into the nursing program. I wish your nephew the best in his future endeavors!
Professional! Goes above and beyond!
Michael was extremely helpful in helping me studying for the TEAS exam, particularly in math. He was not only knowledgeable in math, but had many helpful study tools as well as tips and tricks to eliminate multiple choice questions without having to solve the problems. He was professional, patient, and always well prepared. He also was available outside of our tutoring sessions to help with any questions I had. I would highly recommend using Michael as a tutor!
Alycia , 6 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for the kind words, Alycia. The math on the TEAS is no harder than what you would expect in a 9th grade algebra or geometry class. Therefore, I am certain that none of the material on the test is new to TEAS students. They simply need a refresher on the basics. However, rather than trying to re-learn all of algebra, geometry, and statistics, I help students master the shortcuts and strategies that can be used to earn a high score on the test. That is my philosophy with all career aptitude tests, including the HESI, PAX, and the military aptitude and officer candidate tests. I am certain that all of your hard work, coupled with these tips, will help you perform very well on your TEAS exam.
Customized to My Needs and Goals
Michael was able to help me identify the areas I needed to get better at for the next exam. I am excited to keep working with him, as I have already learned so much so far!
Kerry-Ann, 5 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for the favorable review, Kerry-Ann. It was very helpful of you to share the breakdown of your recent TEAS exam with me so that I could develop a game plan that addressed your specific needs. Tutoring is a partnership between tutor and student, and the bests results occur when we work together as a team. I really appreciate it!
Mind Blowing!
I'm studying for the AFOQT and have had a difficult time studying by myself. I'm glad I found Michael. I have had one lesson with him and it was MIND BLOWING! He's extremely knowledgeable in his expertise. I haven't done math like this since I graduated high school in 2004 and during our lesson he was extremely patient with me. I was remembering steps in solving problems I haven't done in years! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Michael. I know I'm going to do well on this test because of his help!
Loliana, 6 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you so much, Lo, for your amazing comments! First impressions are everything, and I know after just one meeting that you have the ability to do extremely well on the AFOQT. It is very easy to work with a student who is attentive, engaged, and cooperative. I, too, look forward to continuing to help you acheive your goals.
Excellent Math Lesson
I haven't had a math class since 2006, and in just an hour, Michael brought back a lot of knowledge I thought was lost. Studying for the AFOQT by myself has been hard, so I'm really happy to have found a tutor that can break things down simply to dust off the cobwebs. I am really looking forward to more sessions with him before I take my test.
Ashley, 9 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you, Ashley. I always tell students that the math on the AFOQT covers things you probably already know, but have just forgotten because you haven't done them in a while. Moreover, succeeding on the AFOQT math sections requires you to use a different approach than you would take in an algebra or geometry class. The test administrators don't need to "see your work." They only care whether you provide the correct answer. I show students how to obtain those answers without all the work.
Great Teacher
Have done 2 lessons so far with Michael and have learned a great amount information from him. I plan to take many more lessons with him to further prepare myself for the AFOQT.
Kodi, 5 lessons with MichaelTutor responded:Thanks for the favorable review, Kodi. I look forward to continuing to help you prepare for the AFOQT.
Knowledgeable
Michael helped me more into identifying the root, suffix and prefixes of words to help me break them down. He is very patient and knowledgeable about the things he explains. He also provides many great examples to help break down his explanations
Cesar, 1 lesson with MichaelTutor responded:Thank you for sharing these comments, Cesar. It is my pleasure to assist you with the verbal portion of the AFOQT.
