About Michael

My education has prepared me to be a mentor as well as a practitioner of my studies. I studied playwriting at the Negro Ensemble Company in New York; I worked on the Broadway show, The Poison Tree, with Cleavon Little, Moses Gunn, Northern Galloway and Peter Masterson, which was directed by Charlie Blackwell; I spent two years in Hiroshima, Japan teaching English by using Drama; I have taught Public Speaking at Liberal Arts colleges; I have worked in film, television and stage;I have written plays and performed in original docu-dramas. I consider it a pleasure to give back to society what I have learned over the years.

I was a personal assistant to the legendary actress Bette Davis, an experience that taught me the importance of helping others. Although I did not star in the Color Purple, Quincy Jones was instrumental in letting me be in the film as an extra and securing the musicians in the Juke Joint scene. I have worked on several Hollywood sets and continue to work on movie sets today. I am a member of Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artist One Union. I have taught in community colleges, four year colleges and overseas colleges. In my career I have had a diversity of students from various backgrounds, cultures and religions.

I look forward to tutoring those that are seeking to expand their interest or desire in my field of expertise.

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 have taught Public Speaking for over four years at a Liberal Arts College. I am also a public speaker. Last year I was in a conference with Les Brown, where I spoke to people that were interested in the entertainment industry. I also taught Public Speaking in Hiroshima, Japan to students that were involved in competition. My students placed first and third in an Iwakuni Speech Contest in Japan.
