Miki's Bio

Hard-working and driven but easy-going with students, Miki gets along with everyone. A graduate of UCLA with a BS in applied mathematics, Miki also received his MA in applied mathematics from California State University at Fullerton. After graduating from college, he worked as an actuarial assistant in the pension benefits industry before becoming a quality analyst, quality engineer, and quality assurance manager in the plastics manufacturing industry. Currently, he tutors part-time, day trades in the stock market, and delivers for Doordash.

Miki started teaching and tutoring after leaving the plastics manufacturing industry and moving from California to Colorado. “I love working one-on-one with students to achieve their academic goals and full potential,” he reports. He has accumulated more than thousands of hours of experience tutoring hundreds of students in 5th through 12th grade in the following subjects: pre-algebra, algebra, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus, as well as PSAT, SAT, ACT, ISEE, and SSAT prep. His teaching method is to keep it simple and stick to the basics using an intuitive, common-sense approach to learning. “I like to have fun with my students, sometimes using a Staples Easy Button during a lesson. Students love to hear the words, "That was easy!"

Miki loves the outdoors, especially in Colorado, and makes a point to climb at least one or more of the “fourteeners” each year. So far, he’s climbed Mt. Elbert, Mt. Bierstadt, Quandary Peak, Mt. Democrat, and Torrey’s Peak. He also loves to create zany, humorous cartoons (you can find them at, which are similar to the offbeat Far Side cartoons by Gary Larson. Miki was named Tutor of the Year for the Colorado/Texas region in 2013 and in 2014 by our in-home tutoring brand, StudyPoint.
