About Michael

I specialize in working with individuals of all ages and am experienced in encouraging persons with forms of ADHD, Autism, and Dyslexia to develop confidence and reach their greatest learning potential. Unlocking learning potential is the key to success in education. Very often, I have found, this a function of the development of confidence and building a foundation of one small accomplishment upon the next, and so on.

My tutoring experience includes serving as an assistant teacher to aide students with individualized educational programs in Massachusetts, Work Keys preparation in Lansing, staff tutoring at Erickson Learning Center in Okemos, English presentation development and ESL development for South Korean executives via voice over internet phone delivery, and private tutoring in the metropolitan Lansing area.

I look forward to working with you to develop a success driven and empowering learning program which achieves results.


I love the English language. As a creative writer, I am constantly expanding my grasp of the language. I think outside of the box to express myself in the most effective ways possible. I find it exciting to share my love for learning about all areas of the language with my students. It is that shared excitement which leads to appreciation and success.

I am a very calm and patient person, eager to allow my student to seek his or her comfort level in any interaction. It is the ability to create this peaceful space which lays a successful foundation for working with my Dyslexic students.

I have completed the Orton-Gillingham Method, concentrating on Decoding and Encoding.

Each student is an individual. Every course of tutoring is designed to achieve success and create confidence. I look forward to discussing how we can make the difference that counts in your learning needs!
