Hey! My name's Mikhael. I love traveling, languages, and the experiences they provide. I've lived in Turkey, Israel, France, and all over the United States. I went to high school near Boston and spent a year post-graduation studying in Israel. While at Princeton for the next few years, I'll be studying a panoply of new topics while focusing on public policy and international relations.
I attended a high school near Boston with graduating classes of 50 students. I benefited from personal attention and faculty dedicated to my success. As a tutor, I seek to transmit and amplify that experience with one-on-one attention. It's my job to help you master your material; that involves understanding the work you do and learning to reproduce it independently. Enjoying the process accelerates learning and cements the material long after we cover the material. If you want my help now, I promise you won't need it by the time we've finished!
