HobbiesI graduated with my PhD in Chemistry from Northeastern University (2013) and have furthered my studies with a National Institute of Health fellowship working at Harvard Medical School where I currently work as an Instructor.
In addition to my education, I have worked in industry as an analytical chemist and a medicinal chemist. I have taught/tutored various chemistry classes, levels, and majors.
What sets me aside from other tutors is my ability to communicate effectively to help students understand the material. I think you will find that I am easy going, professional, and passionate about my work.
I currently live in West Peabody but work in Charlestown so I am able to meet and tutor students near those two areas.

Michael was an outstanding tutor. Having never needed a tutor before, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. The organic chemistry course I took was six weeks and very fast paced. Haven taken chemistry four years ago, I quickly realized that I needed help fast after the second week, especially since I was working full time. When I reached out to Michael, I quickly got a response back and was able to meet with him in the next few days at a location that fit both our schedules. He was able to explain the material in layman terms and made it very easy to understand. If I didn't quite understand something, he would go over it again more slowly until I got it. I highly recommend MIchael if you need help in Organic Chemistry. He certainly knows his subject and there were more than a few times where we...really he...even corrected my professor on some practice questions!! Five stars all the way!
