About MICHAEL

One thing I've learned in life is that everyone is a student and a teacher. We all have areas we do not know or know little about and some that we know quite proficiently. As such, in my classroom days as a student I experienced moments of uncertainty to moments of complete understanding the subjects taught. Having experienced difficult moments in understanding a topic and struggling to ace exams made me want to help others so they wouldn't have those moments of anxiety I so much loathed. After achieving my Bachelors of Arts degree in English, I decided to become a teacher in order to share my expertise in this subject.

My passion for educating eager minds and facilitating excellent learning has led me to increase my knowledge by seeking a Masters degree. Between my student teaching fieldwork and substituting I have garnered more insight in various pedagogical interests. Therefore as my student you will have the benefit of learning from someone who has been in your position before, one who needed clarification when given topics were confusing. One who studied the subject matter you're struggling with, but most of all, one who knows what it takes to become successful in mastering the given concepts.

During my undergraduate program in college I did my internship with a publishing and editing company. I worked with the editor of the company as an assistant editor. However my path to writing and editing changed when I considered how I was always in need of constant mentoring early in my school days and how I also relish sharing my expertise. Since my study in English Literature was one of my strengths I decided to become an English Language Arts teacher. I'm currently working on my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree. This is the last semester of my tutelage in the field of Education.

I work as an assistant coach in track and field for one of the high schools in Jersey City. In my spare time I coach privately. I also have the experience of a middle and long distance runner. My accomplishments range from 800 meters to half marathon elite performance. Therefore I know what it takes to come in the first position.

If you want to learn and become a master in key details in the works of English, literature, grammar, and writing, contact me. You're also encouraged to reach me if you'd like to receive advice and coaching in the Track and Field sports. Your success has already begun, let's build on it!

English

I am an English major graduate with a teaching degree underway.

Track & Field

I began running and excelling in Track and Field in fourth grade. Short races on the track were my forte'. However I transcended later to middle and long distance running. After high school I competed in the elite level mostly ranging in the first and top positions. I now coach privately and work with Hudson Catholic High School in Jersey City, New Jersey as an assistant coach.
