Mike graduated Phi Beta Kappa with honors from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in sociocultural anthropology. He has been a Summit tutor and teacher since 2016 and has extensive experience tutoring standardized admissions tests and a wide range of AP exams and academic subjects. He has a patient, supportive style and aims to help all of his students develop strong metacognitive awareness and logical reasoning skills. Outside of tutoring, he reads widely, is an obsessive crossword puzzler, enjoys studying languages and math, and spends as much time as he can biking and hiking.
