About Michael

I'm a current English Teacher and English Tutor, as well as a published writer. Teaching for me is a labor of love rather than a job. I have a Master's Degree in English and have taught students as young as 4th grade to adult students learning ESL. I've worked with students from all sorts of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Each student learns in a different way and has specific needs that I am always sensitive to. I'm a current English Teacher and English Tutor, as well as a published writer.
