About Michael

Thank you for taking the time to check out my tutoring prowess! I don't know exactly what you need, but I'm sure that together we can figure it out. I certainly believe that I have the skill set to help any student navigate the world of literature and reading for information, and better understand the writing process. It is my chief desire to help students see the beauty of being able to eloquently express ones self through the written word. I know that I possess the tools to help students grapple with complex reading material and learn what questions they should be asking. I firmly believer that to become better at any subject matter, be it Language Arts, Physics or Algebra, you need two fundamental skills - A) Understand what you're being asked to do, and B) Asking the best questions possible. Great minds didn't become great because of what they knew, they became great by asking the right questions and understanding how to go find the answers. I excel in helping students come to terms with what they are being asked to do/complete, and learning how to ask the question that will propel them to next level thinking. It is my hope that between a bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in writing, and my Master's degree in Education, you will reach out and see how I can be of use to you. Be well and I wish you the best of luck in achieving the success you deserve. Thank you for taking the time to check out my tutoring prowess!

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.

Fitness

I believe I can assist anyone looking for fitness help. I currently work part time at the YMCA and teach Spin class. I have done a young runners club in the past, rocket runners, and introduced people to the gym equipment. I often work on specific routines tailored to individuals who are looking to supplement a cardio workout.
