About Michael

I enjoy teaching children between 4 and 9 years old because they are generally inquisitive and want to learn. Cooking is my favorite subject to teach and will teach any age to cook as I hold an associate’s degree in Culinary Arts. Math and Grammar are my favorite subjects otherwise. Beginning Spanish is as far as I will go in Spanish, I can teach the alphabet, numbers, days of the week, months and proper pronunciation. Enough to give children a head start in the subject and find out if he/she would like to continue learning it.I held an A in English Composition I and II. I qualified to tutor in Washtenaw Community College's Writing Center. I can tutor with Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and Power Point.

I raised my daughter as a single father while I worked for Ford Motor Company. Ford offered buy-outs and one of them was an educational buy-out which I opted to take. I spent the last four years, May 2007 through June 2011, getting an associate's degree at Washtenaw Community College and a bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management at Eastern Michigan University. Much of this education is fresh in my head and taught me good study skills, time management, and a lot of self discipline. In addition, I have helped my daughter to realize that a higher education is mandatory if she wants to live a lifestyle that she is accustomed to. As she grew up we took vacations regularly, had nice things, new cars, and a nice home with pets.

I would like to share my experience and knowledge with others if it would help. I believe that everyone should continue on in their education past high school in order to have a comfortable lifestyle and not have to stress over money.

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.

Baseball

I have played baseball for over 15 years throughout my life. I managed 4 different teams in the Saline area. I played baseball while I served in the U.S. Army. I'd be glad to help you with the rules and regulations, object of the game, positions and their duties, and equipment.

Cooking

I hold an associate's degree in culinary arts from Washtenaw Community College. I have cooked most recently in an upscale restaurant in the Saline area. I can help with the following: preparation of menus, recipe reading, weights and measurements, spices and herbs, the 5 grand sauces, proper stock preparation, soups, salads, entree's, desserts, starches, and more.

Golf

Knowledge of rules, regulations, concept of game, proper swing, scoring, and handicaps. I have ran a league of my own with an average of 20 members for 6 years and will be this coming April at a local golf course in the Saline area. I have played golf since I was 14 years old and have been in many leagues over the years.

Microsoft Word

I have 4 years of MS Word 2007 experience and am currently mastering the 2010 version. I have had recent classes at both Washtenaw Community College and Eastern Michigan University. I just completed an associate's and a bachelor's degree in the last 4 years. I had to write many essays and all homework using MS Word. I am confident that I can teach anyone how to successfully master MS Word.

Poker

I understand and can explain the concept of game rules, betting, order of winning hands, and strategy. I have played poker in tournaments while serving in the U.S. Army and have been playing at casinos since it has been legal in Michigan. I have also visited Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

Softball

I have played softball for over 15 years throughout my life. I managed 4 different teams in the Saline area. I played softball while I served in the U.S. Army. I'd be glad to help you with the rules and regulations, object of the game, positions and their duties, and equipment.
