ExperienceI taught mathematics at Greenhills School Ann Arbor from 2005 to 2011, Cass Technical High School Detroit from1986 to 2005, and the University of Michigan-Dearborn, as an adjunct instructor 2003 to 2006. As a mathematics teacher, I enjoyed helping students explore their own mathematical thinking as an important way to learn mathematics. I hold National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification and Michigan Teacher Certification in mathematics, computer science, German and social studies.
I now tutor mathematics full time, helping students in middle school, high school and college. I give clear and personalized explanations. I guide middle school and high school students in organization and study skills. My students build memory and retention by regularly writing summaries and study questions.
My rate for most high school and middle school classes is $55 per hour. For Calculus, my rate is $60 per hour. For UM Math 115/116 my rate is also $60 per hour. For UM Stat 250 my rate is $65 per hour.
I tutor in your home, in public libraries or on campus. Sign up for tutoring with a friend and save. Two students receive tutoring for the price of one.

HobbiesI love social dancing - waltz, foxtrot, tango, salsa - as well as jogging and biking with my son and friends. I volunteer to help with various projects. I've helped remodel a Habitat for Humanity home. I volunteer to clean up Ann Arbor parks, at Community Kitchen Delonis Center and with Food Gatherers.

Mike has been our daughters' math tutor since 2012 and he has done a fantastic job! He has ensured that my daughters have a deep understanding of the topics. He constantly has worked w them. His teaching style has resulted in A in every test and quiz. I highly recommend Mike.
We have been using Mike Ehmann as a math tutor for my daughter for the last two years. She now has straight A's in Algebra 1 AC and Geometry at Huron. He is very warm and encouraging. He takes the time to have his students explain their thinking so that he can ensure they understand the concepts well. He also works with her to improve how she organizes information in her daily math work. He has been very flexible about meeting times since my schedule has sometimes been hectic. He is willing to come to our home or to meet students in the public library. As an educator myself, I strongly recommend him as a tutor.
Michael was excellent as my stats 250 Tutor during my 5 sessions. His years of teaching experience enable him to communicate difficult messages and formulas into a manner that I was able to comprehend much easier. His professionalism, reliability and friendliness were also added bonuses that made the experience that much better for me. Jaimie.
Mike was a great and reliable tutor for our son. He spent a school year working with him on his Calculus coursework. Our son had the ability but not the confidence to do the work and Mike, in his quiet but direct manor worked with our son developing the tools to enjoy math again. He scored a 5 on his AP Calculus Test! Thanks for all you did to encourage our son, Mike!
