About Michael

I have a Master's degree in Linguistics, and offer over 10 years of ESL teaching/tutoring experience. My students have consistently given me high marks for my ability to foster a safe learning environment—one which affords students many opportunities to use, explore, and critically think about English, thus making them more self-sufficient learners. Grammar, accent reduction, business/academic writing, and TOEFL preparation are also part of my instruction. I welcome students of all levels, and look forward to helping them become better speakers and learners.

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.

English

I offer over 7 years of ESL teaching/tutoring all levels of instruction, in both university and business settings. Additionally, have a Master's degree in Linguistics, with coursework in ESL methods/materials and teaching strategies.

My teaching philosophy is based on a communicative approach, where the student is given ample opportunity to question, explore, and use English in a safe environment. Other areas of instruction include grammar, business/academic writing, accent reduction, and resume writing.
