About Michael

I have spent the last six months teaching ESL abroad at Berlitz Language Center. The center provided me with training and the tools needed to be a successful instructor. My responsibilities included planning my own lessons, writing monthly progress reports for the students, and giving feedback on quizzes, homework, and writing practice. I have taught a wide range of age groups and levels from beginner to advanced. I also have taught specialized classes including pronunciation, negotiations, social situations, and business.

I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a degree in English and a minor in Professional Writing. Personally, I am very passionate about teaching English as a Second Language. I believe that the best way to teach English is by strictly speaking in the target language during the lesson. I bring a very positive energy into every class. My students are always very motivated by my attitude, which helps them gain confidence in learning the language. I encourage students to always try their hardest and to always continue learning. My hobbies include reading and writing.
