About Michael

I have been a tutor in English and Math when I was in high school helping inner city students develop basic math skills, along with literacy and spelling skills. I have performed proofreading projects for major law firms. I have an excellent vocabulary acquired over the years, that has enabled me to become a good communicator on a more sophisticated level involving complex concepts and issues. I believe that I am a succinct and persuasive writer based upon pleadings, motions and other memorandums of law that I have drafted during my practice.

My tutoring approach is patient and nonjudgmental. I can adapt my tutoring approach to the learning style and comfort level of the student. A keen awareness of the student's proficiency level in a given subject matter will allow me to tailor an approach that will facilitate both an improvement in their skill level and their confidence. The most important element of a productive and healthy student-teacher relationship is mutual trust and understanding along with well-defined goals and a way of gauging improvement and progress towards those goals.
