Michael Bilow

Los Angeles, CA


EDUCATION Yale University
UCLA (Ph.D.)

Michael has taught in inner-city schools, the mansions of Saudi sheikhs, and a few places in between. He brings passion and a breadth of experience to teaching the GRE, along with folksy Midwestern charm. Michael has over five years of experience teaching test prep.

After earning his bachelor’s degree in mathematics at Yale, Michael worked on the Disney Channel hit The Suite Life on Deck. He contributed a number of jokes to the show, but is legally obligated never to divulge which. Michael was one place away from making the national spelling bee in 7th grade. The word he lost on was “miscellanea.” It still hurts.

When he’s not teaching, you can find Michael improvising, writing, and studying computational genetics at UCLA. Michael is a fanatical consumer of excellent TV, and also Chopped. He cried at the end of ET, Toy Story 3, and Hannah and her Sisters. Although he lives mere miles from the beach, he hasn’t been there in a year. He’s definitely going to try to make it out there this weekend.
