• 56 Leonard Street Project, Manhattan, New York, USA

With this in mind, my tutorial services offered are as follows:

Whether you’re a student, engineer, general contractor, apprentice, skilled tradesman or simply interested in construction, I can help you reach your goals.

I have a patient and flexible approach to teaching and work with the specific needs of each person. I’m available anytime, preferably weekdays, and can meet online or at a location convenient to us both in Melbourne.

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to working with you soon.




Mike is a highly patient, encouraging and detailed-oriented tutor! He prepares before every tute session with summary guides for you to understand the construction drawings, has made the subject surely easier for me. He also never ceases to give superb explanations to the concepts. Highly recommend him as a tutor!
