Description

Class Experience

I have a degree in Philosophy and a degree in Mathematics, and for decades have taught physics and chemistry and biology, have studied logic and epistemology, and have studied the history and philosophy of science. From me, students have learned how logic and science work even when studying some other subject like math, SAT/ACT, or physical fitness. 

What matters is not so much my credentials (which, yes!, I have, as you can see in my profile bio), but the success of my students. 

Those student successes are my real credentials. Here are some:
1.  Dylan T, ex-high school student now in his 20s: "I really did learn more than geometry and math taking classes with you. I learned to reason and use logic to start solving things in everyday life. It’s pretty useful at work when I use reasoning to find root causes, and to find and fix problems. You teach people how to THINK!"

2.  Joe S, ex-high school student: "I tutored with Michael for physics and calculus at the end of my senior year of high school in order to prepare myself for my first semester of engineering at Texas A&M University. Not only was I prepared enough to feel comfortable and excel in the coursework my 1st semester but Michael introduced me to thinking about problems as a whole and inductively (a thought process which has helped in every form of learning). To this day, 7 years later, I still use this method to help me solve problems and learn, in work and in life, more effectively. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking to not only improve their grades but also to improve their ability to problem-solve and appreciate learning."

3.  Rajiv R, ex-junior high and high school student:  "Michael sets the standard for excellence among tutoring services. I was a student of Michael Gold for around 7 years, and the education I received has had an immeasurably positive impact on my life.

"I originally only sought out tutoring for Geometry & Algebra, during middle school, in order to place into higher level math classes. I found the tutoring to be so valuable that I continued my lessons even after placing into and acing my desired courses -- I received tutoring in math through high school and some of college (all the way up to 3D Calculus). Additionally, I received tutoring for English and Grammar, Physics, SAT prep and more.

"Gold's tutoring helped me achieve A's in my classes and great scores on standardized tests, but this was just the 'tip of the iceberg.' With each lesson I also learned how to better think logically, carefully, and reasonably. These skills are essential to life and have helped me immensely - I still use the learning/study methods I developed through Gold's lessons to earn top scores in many college courses and to do well in my work and hobbies.

"I will forever be grateful to Gold Academy, and highly recommend the service to any student who is looking to start learning, thinking and living."

Note: Rajiv told me that he made a 102 in Immunology at Texas A&M, the highest grade his professor had awarded in 20 years at teaching at Texas A&M University; that many microbiology/genetics professors at Texas A&M wanted him to work in their lab; and that he gave a presentation for a high school animal science class, in which all students had to be grilled by three professional veterinarians, and was so well-prepared and well-informed that he was able to defend a position against the disagreement of all three veterinarians, quieting them into intellectual submission. 

4.  Melanie K, mother of three to whom I teach science:  "Michael expounds all that is science in such an interesting and exciting way! He always keeps my kids engaged and thinking that science is fun!

"He presents science in a logical, rational, integrated way – making it easy and possible to take everything they are learning and apply it in ‘the real world’… not just a list of useless facts, but tangible, knowable, valuable life lessons.

"He builds a great foundation with biology first and all the rest of the sciences following and integrating from there. Who knew that biology, physics, physical fitness, and chemistry are all related and integrated? Just take a few science classes with Michael, and you’ll see for yourself!

"I recommend to any parent that seriously cares about their child's educational well-being -- as well as their mental and physical health -- to get in touch with Michael Gold and get started with him right away! His holistic and hierarchical approach to learning and understanding the world is a must when helping your child prepare for their future. My three children study with Michael, and I couldn't be more pleased with their progress. He makes learning fun!"

5.  Drew T, Summer 2017 (ex-high school student, now in his 20s): "Prior to working with Michael, I had very little hope of actually pursuing my dream to work in the aerospace industry as an engineer. Yet here I am, finishing an engineering degree at A&M this Fall and working at Bell Helicopter as an engineer. With Michael's help, I came to understand the importance of not only mathematics, but also reason, rationality, and a constant pursuit of knowledge. I cannot recommend Michael enough for any student of any subject, this guy is simply the best."
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
