About this Helpout

HighQ offers you the absolute best in math and science tutoring; striving for concept mastery and deep understanding!  

Each session will begin with me getting an precise idea of what you need help with.  Once the subject in question has been detailed, I'll ask a few questions and perhaps some related practice problems to make sure that you have the requisite foundation to master the problem area.  Often times, people struggle on more advanced subjects simply because they do not possess a strong foundation.  I will make sure that you have a solid foundation in order to truly master the subject or concept you need assistance in.

Typically tutor students from middle school level upwards to college graduate level. (Grades 8+ only)

The following subjects are covered.  If there is a subject not listed here that you need help in, simply ask to see if I could be of assistance.  Together, we can figure out any subject!

Algebra I/II
Multivariable Calculus

Differential Equations
SAT Math
SAT Math subject level I/II
ACT Math
GRE Math (for a full course, please see my other listing

Classical Mechanics (Physics I) (college and AP level)
Electromagnetism (Physics II) (college and AP level)
ACT Science

Special Subjects (please contact me ahead of time for these topics)
Jet Propulsion
Rocket Propulsion

If you are not satisfied with your session, I will provide you with a full refund.

Other qualifications

Intelligently creative. Responsible. Committed. Focused. Big kid at heart. Open-minded. Considerate. Reasonable. Amiable. Charismatic. Trustworthy. Innately curious. Passionate.
Those are the words that would describe Mikel Graham.
So with that, you should be sold. But just in case there are any lingering doubts, insight into Mikel’s background might help iron those out. Mikel graduated with a B.S. and a M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from MIT and Georgia Tech — as well as a B.S. in Philosophy from MIT and is a member of the high IQ society Mensa. He has been teaching/tutoring since high school, starting with various levels of math (algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, trigonometry, and calculus). Ironically, at the time, he didn't care too much for teaching; "I didn't have the patience for it," he says. Little did he know, high school was just the start of his teaching career. As a freshman at MIT, he became the teaching assistant (TA) for 16.100 - the freshman introductory course to Aerospace Engineering. As he progressed through MIT, he later became a TA for the Unified Engineering course (covering aerodynamics, thermodynamics, propulsion, signals and systems, and materials) which is the staple class for aerospace engineering at MIT. Mikel’s dynamic learning and teaching ability allowed him to teach Physics during the summer for MIT’s Project Interphase. Throughout his entire MIT career, Mikel privately tutored MIT students and students from the greater Boston area – from high school to graduate level students. Mikel has also worked with MIT’s Tech Tutors. Later on as a graduate student, he was a TA at Georgia Tech for Aerospace Lab, high-speed aerodynamics and jet/rocket propulsion (and yes, this is rocket science if you didn't know), all the while still tutoring privately.
With about nine years of teaching under his belt, Mikel has become astute to students' learning styles. Identifying the best way an individual learns empowers him to communicate information that'll be absorbed effectively. He has an uncanny ability to easily explain ideas without sacrificing the integrity or congruence of any subject. Further, his focused attention to minute detail ensures that students' understanding of a concept is not only correct, but also completely understood individually as well as in relation to other concepts.
Now, Mikel is bringing all of his teaching and learning experience to Google Helpouts. You will be taught by an individual with years of experience, who has honed his craft to ensure that his students get the absolute best learning experience possible.
Let’s see the other guys bring in an instructor of this caliber!

Needed some help going over some concepts for a placement test. and Mike knew every single one. What more could you ask for.

Good instructor slows down when he has to and go over the foundations of the concept.
