May is used to express the possibility of something, such as "I may visit you tomorrow after work".

Might is the past simple of "may". For example, "I thought he might be interested in investing in my new business".

You can also use might to express the possibility of something happening.

"My grandparents might visit us next summer".

Might can also be used to make a suggestion, such as "I thought you might like to read this book".
