About Mike

Hi, I'm Mike!

It's nice to meet you.

I am a master's degree-level tutor, offering assistance in both reading and writing.

Regarding reading, I can help students with both basic and advanced skills, including eye movement, pronunciation of words, speed, note-taking, and comprehension. **I do not; however, tutor students with learning challenges such as dyslexia - you should seek someone who has advanced training in this field.

With regard to writing, I can help students with everything from basic sentence structure and grammar, to vocabulary use, punctuation, thesis statements, and citations. For students about to enter college, I can help with college-prep writing assignments to get them ready. And for those already in college, I can help with composition writing assignments such as those found in freshman and sophomore composition.

One of the keys to success in writing is peer feedback. So, the way that I tutor is based on the write-reflect-revise model: 1) You write, 2) I give you feedback, 3) you reflect on what I have said and revise for greater clarity and expression. This model is repeated until both the tutor and the student are satisfied with the work.

Lastly, I can also provide assistance to graduate students with their capstone or thesis projects, in humanities-based subject areas. I can assist in helping you to understand syllabus requirements, project planning, writing, editing, and even social research if your project involves human surveys. Please reach out to me so I can get a idea of the scope of your project and what you are trying to accomplish.

I am available most evenings during the week and always prefer to tutor online, unless I am super-close to you and there is a specific need to meet in person. In those cases I will always ask to meet in a public place such as a library or Starbucks.

You should also know that I am a homeschool dad, so I am especially sensitive to the needs and concerns of homeschool students and parents.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a master's degree from Anderson University in Anderson, SC in biblical, theological and church ministries.

Homeschool

My wife and I have homeschooled all four of our children for the last 25 years. Our children's homeschools granted High School diplomas to three of our children (one is entering 9th grade this year). Further, per Florida statues all of our children were/are tested using the ITBS (Iowa Test of Basic Skills). Lastly, I worked as a Homeschool Co-op teacher for two years in the subjects of reading and creative writing.

Public Speaking

Along with my master's degree which required six graduate hours in public speaking, I spent 17.5 years as a local church pastor speaking every weekend.
