All of Michael’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Michael’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Literature

I teach British literature, mainly Renaissance authors like Shakespeare and Milton. I am also very familiar with the Romantics (Blake is a favorite) and the Greek classics (I teach a course on the Hero now and then). I am generally familiar with the whole history of Brit lit, however, and can help with a wide variety of authors/periods/genres.

Proofreading

I have worked with numerous students on writing projects. This experience has included term papers for high school and undergraduate college classes, as well as personal statements for college admission and graduate school admission. It has also covered graduate theses in English and other disciplines.

SAT Writing

I am an English PhD, with experience working with high school students, college students, and graduate students. I have worked with multiple high school students on SAT writing preparation over the last 5 years. Each of these students improved his/her performance on the writing section as we worked together.

Writing

I am a published author--two books and several articles--and have taught writing courses going all the way back to 1996. I can help with a wide variety of writing and research issues.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
