About Michael

This will be my first tutoring job. I have worked as a newspaper editor, though, which involves helping reporters with their writing skills. Editors not only proofread for spelling and grammar, but help structure writing so that it is clear, concise and--when appropriate--entertaining. Both my parents were teachers and my brother is a professor at St. John's University, so you could say education runs in my family.
I have been pursuing a master's degree in education. I began at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and continued on-line with Jones International University, where I am one credit shy of the degree. I stopped short knowing that the next step would be student teaching. Right now I can't afford to work without pay, so that's a hurdle I still have to jump.

I have no direct experience, but my three children all commented on how calm and patient I was when teaching them to drive. I have coached baseball and basketball, which is a form of teaching. I currently drive a school bus (grades K-12) and have excellent rapport with the students.

I would love to have the opportunity to help you achieve the academic success you're striving for. I think learning can be fun and I'd like a chance to prove it.
