Michael encourages and supports my son as he is working on his writing for school. My son struggles to finish writing assignments at home without great angst and with minimal quality. Michael has a wonderful approach to helping him push himself to create higher quality work, build confidence, and start to see that he can write. Fantastic experience!
Thank you Heather for your kind review. Your son is a wonderful boy who deserves to think highly of himself and his writing abilities. He is well on the way to that, and I think that in our work together he has shown a good deal of initiative in creating ideas and writing structures.
I have been learning English with Michael for 1.5 years. He has been a great tutor. I had a lot of trouble with English pronunciation and I have considerably improved thanks to his classes. He has reviewed my papers for submission in scientific journals and has helped me a lot on improving them. I highly recommend Michael as a tutor.
I really enjoyed my 6 lessons with Michael. Michael is a very professional and helpful teacher. Always on time, he's a funny guy too! He helped me a lot with my pronunciation. I highly recommend him. Thanks Mike!
Michael helped me with my scholarship/college essays and I cannot place enough emphasis on how much confidence he gave me as a writer and a person. I’ve always known that I’m my biggest critic when it comes to my own writing, and I’m still amazed at what a pat on the back and some helpful guidance did for me. While receiving this guidance, I could work at my own pace, as his calm manner assured that I never felt overwhelmed or rushed. At first I was a little skeptical about getting help with my writing, for fear that the finished product would not be my own. However, I soon learned that two minds are better than one when it came to coming up with ideas and organizing my thoughts. He worked with what I already had, and helped me make it better. Only after he listened to my own ideas would he contribute his own. To this day, I rarely use the “backspace” key, because he taught me that everything I write has value to it. I really enjoyed working with Michael and getting to know what a bright, talented man he is in the process.
He is a tutor of my daughter. As s linguistic specialist, he teaches English very well. He tries to enhance her English ability.
He is a nice tutor and he knows my English problems. I am happy that he can teach me and help me to do my essay.
I've learned during the period of 4 weeks skills of communication. I think i got some improvement in writing, the tutor provided me a reference to read and then to write my comment afterward for which it was a bit challenge to me but with further progress i found easy. Great job
Michael is very helpful and patient in coaching me in pronunciation. He is very friendly person, with a nice smile and a gentle manner. Michael makes me work hard, which I appreciate. I highly recommend Michael as a tutor. Thanks!
