Bio

Hello! My name is Michael and I recently completed my MA in history at SCSU. I received my undergraduate degree in philosophy from Covenant College. I like to read and write extensively, and I thoroughly enjoy studying philosophy, history, and literature (and science, when I have time for it!)

Hello! My name is Michael and I recently completed my MA in history at SCSU. I received my undergraduate degree in philosophy from Covenant College. I like to read and write extensively, and I thoroughly enjoy studying philosophy, history, and literature (and science, when I have time for it!)

During my undergraduate degree I tutored for the course Logic and Critical Thinking. I have also had opportunities to volunteer tutor middle school mathematics, reading, and science. During the summer of 2019, I taught multiple reading courses with the Institute of Reading Development to students ranging from kindergarteners to adult readers. These courses also included segments on writing.

While I enjoy reading and writing, I also understand how frustrating it can be when something is standing in the way of it, whether that is focus or just the difficulty of the subject matter. I will bring patience, enthusiasm, and clarity to every tutoring session. With that I hope to inspire confidence that students can grow as readers and writers, and then prove that confidence right in providing them with skills and strategies to acquire a strong command of comprehension and expression.

I have extensive experience peer reviewing academic writing, both among friends and colleagues and also as a co-editor of Covenant College's undergraduate philosophy journal. During my summer working with the Institute of Reading Development, I received written work from students and provided comprehensive feedback. I have a strong grasp of grammar and style, and I, personally, write extensively, both academic and fiction work.
