About Michael

I have an M.A. and a B.A. in English, and I have 18 years of teaching and tutoring experience at the college level, working with high school joint enrollment students, recent high school graduates, nontraditional older students, and seasoned veterans. I teach writing, editing, grammar, research skills, and even the occasional creative writing course! In my teaching life, I have assessed all kinds of writing, from resumes to short informal responses to five-paragraph essays to very formal researched essays; no matter what your writing task, I can help you make it more confident, fluid, and polished. Tutoring one on one offers satisfactions that teaching a class of 20 or more sometimes doesn't: an ability to tailor lessons to specific needs; an easier rapport with students; more immediate feedback; and increased ability to monitor progress.

I am also a published poet, having published my first collection in 2013, and I can often be seen in the company of my wife Rosalind and my dog Greta. You might also see me hiking to the top of Stone Mountain, scribbling poems furiously in a local coffee klatsch, or dining out in greater Decatur. In previous guises, I've also been a technical writer, software salesman, and sandwich artist.

I am renowned for my patience and willingness to explain. I don't mind trying out different approaches to the same problem.

Please feel free to contact me and include your grade level, general tutoring needs, and any specific assignments or tasks you want or need to complete. And if you have further questions about my background or qualifications, please include those, too.
