About John Michael

I have over 10 years in managing educational programs from foreign languages to science enrichment. I have technologically engaging ideas in foreign language tutoring and learning in order to better assist my students with their life-long learning. I am organized, punctual, efficient and effective in my life, and I continue these characteristics in my tutoring lessons.

I have an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience (Psychobiology) from the University of Miami (FL) and also a Masters degree in Neuroscience from the Autonomous University of Madrid. My overall science qualifications are very strong in all subjects from anatomy, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, genetics, neuroscience and physiology.

I have lived in Europe for over 10 years and I am a European-US dual citizen. I have studied in Lisbon, London, Madrid and Paris, therefore I have a very firm grasp on all of their languages. I used to work in a language academy in Madrid teaching Spanish and French, and I was also a long-term world languages substitute teacher for a middle school in Washington, D.C.

I am an easygoing yet firm teacher that would like to help my students succeed in their courses and goals. I will make sure to tailor your tutoring for your needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anthropology

I have been on many anthropological missions and research trips in Europe and the U.S. I have a very good understanding of anthropology and I continue to read relevant articles almost daily. I have tutored two students previously in this subject.

Econometrics

I have a Masters from the London School of Economics in International Political Economy. I was a research student for the Economics department in emerging markets. Also, I have taken graduate level courses in advanced economics and econometrics.

Genetics

I took Genetics as part of my Neuroscience major, and did some research in Psychiatric disorders relating to genetic predispositions. I have tutored genetics previously to two students in university. Also, I have an extremely good grasp of this subject.

Nutrition

I am a certified personal trainer through NCSF (Miami, FL). I have worked at 24 Hour Fitness and Equinox recently as a personal trainer therefore I have an in-depth knowledge of Nutrition and Kinesiology.

Political Science

I have a Bachelors in International Studies and Geography, as well as some graduate degree work in Public and Economic Policy from the London School of Economics and Political Science. I also have some research experience in political science and policy.

Russian

I am part Russian, and therefore I speak Russian fluently. I have lived in Moscow for three years and my grandmother continues to live there. I have tutored in Russian for the past three years.

Spanish

I am a Spaniard living in Los Angeles with over 10 years of Spanish tutoring (all ages) and essay corrections.

Tennis

I have played tennis for about 20 years now. I played on my high school tennis team, the intramural team at the University of Miami (FL), and I continue to play in leagues here in Los Angeles, CA. I have taught 2 summers at a tennis camp in Spain.

Zoology

I used to work at the Madrid Zoo on weekends for three years. I have taken a course in Zoology and I have been certified to work with animals for research and zoo purposes. I have tutored Zoology once previously (even though this subject is quite specific and not common to tutor).
