I have completed two sessions of the CT Dept. of Higher Education's Alternative Route to Certification program in May 2010 and August 2011 and am eligible to teach History and Social Studies, Grades 4-12. My areas of expertise are English language and literature, U.S., European and World History. I am the father of three -- a magna cum laude college graduate, a college junior and an eighth grader -- and have lived in France, Italy and Belgium for a total of twenty years. I am a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, a corporate communications executive and a frequently published freelance writer, as well as a tutor and substitute teacher. I adapt my teaching style and methods to the individual needs, personality and aptitude of the student and always try to transmit my own love of learning to the relationship.
I spent a month helping two young European brothers with virtually no English prepare for American public school. I met with each boy for forty-five minutes, five days a week, and used a variety of techniques to raise their comfort level and to introduce them to common speech usage and patterns.
I tried to keep their interest by playing games, incorporating their immediate surroundings, and focusing on topics of interest to their age group (9-12 years). The results were quite satisfactory and according to their mother, they never once complained about having to study with me.

Good tutor - never gave up! — Michael has done an excellent job. It is not easy to start from zero in English - one of them has a stutter problem - and move our boys to a point where they start to talk English. Especially if the boys prefer to play soccer outside. Michael did a good job and kept their focus on learning. Thanks Michael! ...
