About Michael

My name is Michael. I have an undergraduate degree in International Relations (with a history minor), and a Master's in Public Administration (specializing in International Development), both from the University of Delaware. I graduated Cum Laude and was awarded membership in Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Alpha Theta, Sigma Iota Rho, and Pi Alpha Alpha academic honor societies.

I have also done 2 years graduate work in Political Science (at Claremont Graduate School and the University of Delaware), 2 years graduate work in Library Science (at Drexel University), and recently earned my TEFL Certificate (from the International TEFL Academy). I was a teaching assistant at the University of Delaware, and have been a volunteer tutor with the LVSA (Literacy Volunteers Serving Adults) since December.

I am also fairly proficient in Spanish, have traveled abroad, and grew up in an immigrant household - making me sensitive to cultural/national differences. I am relatively new to teaching but am always seeking ways to further develop my skills and knowledge. My skills are best suited for tutoring English to non-native speakers.
