His tutoring skills are absolutely effective. He's able to get the information across while making connections with the student. What he says means something and is valued due to the trust he develops.
Very patient and knowledgeable. He's one of those "natural teachers" who actually knows how to go over material in a way you can understand. You will not leave his side still confused. Best tutor I've ever had.
Great Tutor! Mr Micheal B helped my son with his pre-calculus honors homework and prepare for his test. My son was struggling in math and Mr. Michael B was able to bridge the gap.
Great tutor. The teachers totally confused my daughter in math but Michael got through to her. nice fellow also.
Michael was very knowledgable and was able to explain the material so my daughter could understand it.
I highly recommend Dr. Michael Brook. He was patient and understood the material for the math course. I would recommend him to anyone. He really knows his stuff. Along with knowing the materail inside an out, Dr. Brooks was always prompt and available when needed for assignments.
