About Michael

Currently I am teaching 7/8 Humanities in the Scottsdale Unified School District at a school of choice and have been for 6 years. I have been teaching for 13 years in AZ and 3 years prior in Chicago, IL. My certification is for English grades 5-12 with a Reading Specialist Endorsement. Plus, I have taught reading to those students challenged in the area of reading; I have worked with special ed students in LRC programs; I have taught primarily grades 7-11 and I taught college for 2 years.

My teaching philosophy in general is that students need to be challenged, guided and engaged. The student should be guided and directed in such a way that allows them to find joy and excitement in reading which leads to engagement. To do this the student needs to find value in reading. My job is to be there to encourage them, guide them and lead them towards understanding and finding that value.

In addition to having experience tutoring, my experience has been that I am able to form a working relationship with these student because they see that I want them to be successful and will do what I can to help them to be successful.

When working with students I know that the students expects to be treated with respect. And once their specific needs have been identified and a goal set, I work with the student in establishing a strategy to achieve that goal. Once the student knows the expectations for both of us, we work together to be achieve that goal.
