Michael earned a B.A., cum laude, in Anthropology from Harvard College. After graduating from Harvard, Michael made a brief foray into the world of consulting before finding his way to tutoring. As a postbaccalaureate student at Columbia University, he found that he loved tutoring and teaching science and math so much that he has been with Advantage Testing ever since. Michael has won many awards for academic excellence, including the John Harvard Honorary Scholarship, Detur Book Prize, and the ALEX award for Academic Excellence from National Alliance for Excellence. Michael was Valedictorian of John L. Miller Great Neck North High School, a USA Today All-Academic First Team, a National Merit Scholar and an AP Scholar.
Now, besides geeking out on science with his students, Michael is an inveterate traveler who loves the outdoors. In the winter, whenever his schedule allows, Michael jets off to a new mountain destination to indulge his skiing obsession, and in the summer, he can usually be found closer to home, exploring the coasts and forests of the great state of Maine. Additionally, Michael’s love of chemistry and his love of eating have combined to turn him into a passionate cook who can frequently be found experimenting in the kitchen.
