About Me - Mickey Gamonal - The ASVAB Tutor


Michael Gamonal

Michael “Mickey” Gamonal was born in 1989 in Tooele UT. Since then, he has received a Bachelor’s degree in Education from UNLV. Then, he went to Morocco for 2.5 years with the United States Peace Corps. After returning, he taught snowboarding for two seasons and worked as a long term substitute teacher in Las Vegas. After teaching everything from English in Arabie, to Snow Boarding for adults math to middle school students he decided it or never to be a “warrior and a member of a HI to was now team.”

He joined the US Army in September of 2019 and was an officer in the Las Vegas National Guard by March of 2020. Scoring a 97 on the ASVAB came naturally for Gamonal because he had been teaching the skills needed to dominate the ASVAB for years before taking it himself. As your tutor, he wants to help his students in any way possible. His biggest strength as a tutor is that he lifts up the lowest scoring students with patience and understanding. He’ll often remember how bad he was at speaking Arabic when he first got to Morocco; it serves as a constant reminder that learning new skills takes time and practice, and it is his privilege to work with students who feel that they can’t learn the simple stuff and that they’ll “always be bad at math.”
