About Michael

My journey as an educator began in 2001. Since that time, I have acquired a Masters degree in teaching and a certificate to teach in Illinois. I have taught first, fourth, and fifth grade as well as high school in the special education department.

I have been tutoring full time since 2011. Developing a relationship with each child is essential to his/her success. I work to establish clear expectations between myself and the parents, and I lay out a clear plan to meet those expectations. Students have a lot of fun working with me and vice versa. Parents, students and their teachers are commonly shocked by how much improvement takes place while working with me. My schedule is flexible as are my strategies to achieving the best results for each student. I do not use a blanket curriculum, because I believe each student deserves a personalized experience.

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.
