About Michael

My teaching experience comes from first a desire to serve and use my gifts and desire to share knowledge, to share Truth. I first began as a teaching assistant while working on my undergraduate; it was for an intermediate Spanish course. I then became a tutor at the writing center of my university; there, I assured students (native and nonnative) and faculty in writing research papers, memos, thesis and even grant proposals, all in American English.

I was then offered a teaching assistant ship for an intermediate ESL course; both courses had 20 students from as many as 6 different countries. Working in such an environment helped me to be culturally sensitive, knowledgeable as to how to convey the American style of writing, as well as compassion.

I love tutoring because it is a micro class; it allows the student to receive more attention which the instructor is unable to provide his/her student(s) in an average classroom of 20-30 students. It also creates a more relaxed atmosphere. I have taught two undergraduate courses of ESL, and was a writing tutor of Academic English.

I have taken 10+ years of Spanish, have acted as a Teaching Assistant for an intermediate Spanish course, as well as guest taught an Advanced conversation course. In addition, I studied in Costa Rica in order to improve my knowledge about the culture and language.

Prior to being involved in linguistics, I was a history major; I have a love of American history, and still consider it a passion. If you need assistance in any of the following areas, please don't hesitate to contact me to schedule lessons.
