About Michael

Hi, my name is Michael. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Southern California. I have tutored for the Palm Springs Unified School District, Desert Sands Unified School District and Coachella Valley School District for the past three years in an after school tutoring program in partnership with Academic Advantage in Los Angeles. I worked with students individually in grades 2-9 to improve their reading comprehension, test taking, and writing. I am a firm believer in tutoring with computers and laptops. Most of my students use this method in their classrooms daily. Hi, my name is Michael. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Southern California.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

During the last 3 years I have tutored Elementary and Middle School students in reading and writing for both Indio and Coachella Valley School Districts. I have a proven track record of moving my students up to grade level and in many cases multiple grade levels.

Public Speaking

I have always had the ability for public speaking. I began on the debate team at Palm Springs High School. I continued with the JEP Project at The University of Southern California teaching at local high schools for 3 semesters. I believe that public speaking gives a student confidence in both class work and their personal lives.
