Ph.D. in Theoretical Biophysics
Mike tutored high schoolers in math and science throughout undergrad and graduate school, and while at Yale, he taught college classes in general chemistry and advanced quantum mechanics. Helping students succeed academically and understand complex subject matter ignited Mike’s own passion for teaching, and he carries that passion into his work for Bulldog Tutors.
Mike earned his Ph.D. in theoretical biophysics from Yale in the summer of 2010. Before that, Mike was the valedictorian at Georgetown College, where he majored in chemistry and biology and was a member of the varsity soccer and cross country teams. In his free time, Mike can be found on the rugby pitch, playing with the New Haven Rugby Club.
