About Michael

I am a lifelong learner who loves to share my passion for language and literature with students. This past year, I worked as a full-time tutor in an urban charter school where I helped students achieve their reading and writing goals and prepare for the SAT, PARCC and MCAS tests.

At Brown University as an undergraduate student, I studied Comparative Literature to deepen my written communication skills and master the art of critical and persuasive writing. The research and analysis skills I developed earned me 2nd place in the Preston Gurney Literary Criticism Contest my senior year. These research and analysis skills as well as excellent reading and writing skills that I developed as an undergraduate will serve my students well. Next, I pursued an MFA at Brown University in order to fulfill a passion but also to develop excellent interpersonal and oral communication skills. The acting program there taught me to be a confident speaker and to use charm in order to get my passion and message across to whatever audience I am in front of.

I possess a breadth of knowledge of literature past and present and my mastery of various genres and types of writing will inform how I work with each student to master the text in front of him/her.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve success in your studies!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

I earned an MFA in Acting from Brown University/Trinity Rep in 2010. My course of study included voice, speech, and physical techniques that serve to make a speaker more persuasive and intelligible. One semester included working solely with famous speeches to learn the art of rhetoric.
