About Michael

My passion for tutoring and teaching began at Bates College, where I majored in English, minored in education, and worked at the Peer Writing Center during my junior and senior years. In this role, I developed my skills as an effective tutor and served as an attached writing assistant to several education and English courses. I have also delivered one-on-one instruction to ELL students at Lewiston High School, and co-taught an AP preparation course at Phillips Exeter Academy's summer session. In 2016, I will travel to Brazil on a Fulbright Grant and assist aspiring teachers in their own English instruction.

What I love about tutoring is the ability to personalize lessons to the learning styles of each individual. Once we establish our goals for the conference, I ask guiding questions that give students greater ownership and awareness over their writing process. I always keep the next essay or assignment in mind, and try to help students develop the skills to communicate clearly and effectively on their own.

To ensure a quiet and comfortable study space, I offer classes at the Brookline Public Library. I am also happy to travel to another location in the Greater Boston area at the convenience of the student.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping students of all levels build confidence and effectively communicate their ideas.
