About Michael

I have left the classroom to devote my talents and energies to tutoring. While attending the University of Paris, I tutored ESL to high profile French professionals. During this time, I also taught English reading and writing to high school students.

My tutoring in Washington, DC brought me into an educational pas de deux with the children of government officials and newly arrived citizens. All told, I have been tutoring for over 30 years. The students were all different and they showed me the way, because I watched and listened.

As a result of my experiences, I am familiar with phonics based reading programs as well as academic coaching (homework). I have tutored most academic subjects to all student ages.

Some kids benefit from one on one study. It thrills me when a student finds the structure in the subject that the student is studying. Memorization is fine but knowing why and knowing how and where to look for solutions is key.

I was fortunate to discover my two talents. One is culinary and the other ELA (English Language Arts). I was a book editor, a magazine writer and teacher. But more importantly, I am a student. My learning style is complex and this makes me hyper-aware of the learning styles of others.

All of my students benefit from my tutoring. When I engage a client, I am flexible and sensitive to the student's needs. I can monitor student progress with school contact and last minute preparation.

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.

Special Needs

I began tutoring special needs as a home bound instructor for an autistic child. More experience was gained when I taught SPECIAL EDUCATION for three years to high school students in Fairfax County, Virginia. Teaching in both contained and general education classes, I taught students with different types of learning issues: mildly mentally delayed, Asperger's, ADD, and ADHD. To name a few.

Besides accumulating nine graduate credits in special education, I tutored for The Lab School of Washington, DC ( a premier special needs school) for four years. There, I began as an academic coach and was given increased responsibility for students with many types of cognitive issues.
