Bio

Hi student,

So you're not doing so hot in English?

You try to get help in class, but the teacher's busy helping everyone else?

Maybe you're a little embarrassed that you don't get what everyone else does?

Well, hey, no problem. I'm here to help you one-on-one. Together, we'll get it done!

My love of teaching comes from that "A-ha!" moment. There's nothing better than that moment when it just clicks, and you say, "A-ha!, This isn't so bad!"

Hi student,

So you're not doing so hot in English?

You try to get help in class, but the teacher's busy helping everyone else?

Maybe you're a little embarrassed that you don't get what everyone else does?

Well, hey, no problem. I'm here to help you one-on-one. Together, we'll get it done!

My love of teaching comes from that "A-ha!" moment. There's nothing better than that moment when it just clicks, and you say, "A-ha!, This isn't so bad!"

As a professional high school English teacher with a Master's degree and nine years of experience, I am up-to-date on the latest methods of instruction that are being implemented in your school, including areas of literacy, grammar and writing. For the last five years, I have taught full-time at a private school dedicated to students with specified learning differences, including dyslexia, ADHD, and autism. Chances are, if the strategies your teacher is using aren't working for you, then you will need more specific, one-to-one instruction, which is what I specialize in.

While my strategies are not set in stone and I am up for anything that will help you, I do not work in a vacuum. I need a firm commitment from you that you will give me the same amount of effort I am putting out there. I require all assignments to be completed in full at the beginning of each session; there may even be a pop quiz or two. I also require that all distracting devices (ie. phones, televisions, radios) be turned off while tutoring is in progress.

You're not alone. As we work together, we'll get to that A-ha!

Professional Qualifications:

*Certified teacher with the Alabama State Department of Education
*Master's degree in Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (2013)
*Five years of classroom experience, working with students with learning differences, including dyslexia

Excellent Teacher

Mike is an excellent teacher. My son is learning a lot with Mike. I thought my son would have some lessons only during summer vacation. However, my son is enjoying and learning so much that he continues having lessons during the school year. Mike not only teaches grammar but also inspires my son to learn more about it. Mike is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Mike as a tutor.

Excellent tutor

My son (high school freshman) had several lessons with Mike, and he told me that he is a terrific teacher who helped him a lot in multiple assignments. He is patient, thorough and very knowledgeable. My son has truly enjoyed English lessons with Mike, and he will continue to have them regularly. I highly recommend Mike as an English tutor.

Great Tutor!

Mike has helped my son tremendously in grammar. He is friendly and always comes prepared to tutor with lesson plans and exercises. He goes the extra mile and will ensure my son is understanding the concepts before the session is over.

Angela, 7 lessons with Mike

Very easy to schedule and just an answered prayer

My son was called by his English teacher and asked who was writing his papers!!! Not only has Mike helped him in English but has given him the tools he needs for writing assignments.
