About Michael

My unique background allows me to offer a highly proficient level of tutoring, especially in English, German, and Latin.

Although born and raised in the greater Los Angeles / Orange County metropolitan area, I come from a German-speaking family. After graduating from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), I lived and worked in Europe for 17 years. I did graduate studies in a doctorate program at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universit├Ąt Freiburg im Breisgau in Germany before accepting employment for a major German refugee relief aid organization in the aftermath of the fall of communism in Central Europe and the war in former Yugoslavia. During my studies in Germany, I successfully passed university certificate exams in both classical and medieval (including ecclesiastical) Latin. My many years of practical pedagogical experiences as both a school teacher and a private tutor in both Europe and the U.S. assure an authentic language instruction in English, German, and Latin. Besides having a very thorough theoretical background in grammar, composition, and literature, I know how to make complex and abstract subject matter understandable to middle school and high school students as well. I possess a California teacher credential and am presently a full-time teacher at a private parochial school in Orange County. In addition, I also have competency in other school subjects.

My wife, our three children, and I still travel to Germany and other European countries often. I would be happy to assist you in your tutoring needs and look forward to doing business with you.

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.

Michael is an ideal tutor for me - master of the language, adaptable to any level, and willing to work with my particular situation (academic German trying to learn at an accelerated pace). I look forward to many future sessions with him.
