About Michael

I have been a full-time teacher for the past thirteen years. I have worked as a Special Education teacher working with students on the Autism Spectrum, students with behavioral issues, including ADD/ADHD. I am a very caring and compassionate person. I try and help my students in whatever way I can. I am creative and patient as I try to help my students achieve success in their studies. I firmly believe that all children can learn and it is the teacher's role to make the learning possible by patiently working with students, trying a variety of tools and activities to meet their needs.

I have tutored special education students and regular education students. I have tutored students from ages four to college. I am the type of tutor who will help your child with homework, but also comes prepared with other materials to try and help students succeed. I am an avid reader who has had success getting non-readers to read. I believe in my students and try to help the students believe in themselves. I am patient, caring, and available to help whenever I am needed. The individualization of my work helps my students to succeed academically. My knowledge and willingness to learn inspire my students to work. I am a caring person. Teaching is not just my job, it is my vocation!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have been a Special Education teacher for the past twelve years. I have worked with numerous students who struggled with ADD/ADHD. I have also worked with students in tutoring situations with this disability.

Reading

I have been a special education teacher who has taught ELA throughout my career including assisting children to become proficient readers. I am a patient and kind tutor who brings a variety of material to help students to be successful. I have been recognized by the New York City Department of Education as a highly qualified ELA teacher.

SAT Reading

I have been tutoring students preparing for the SAT for a number of years. I individualize my tutoring to meet the student's needs. I am available to assist my students as they need help. I am proud to say that I have had success in helping students prepare for the SAT.

Writing

I have been teaching writing for the past twelve years. I believe in using graphic organizers to help students to learn to write clear, interesting, and informative writing pieces. I teach children to develop writing skills from sentences, to paragraphs to completed pieces.
