About Michael

A graduate of Rutgers University, I hold a Master's degree in elementary education and am certified to teach Kindergarten through sixth grade, as well as social studies at the middle school level. I have been working with young people for many years. Over five years as an after school homework aide, I grew adept at finding different ways of explaining to help students understand difficult concepts. This skill proved invaluable while student teaching in a third grade classroom. I have also spent numerous summers as a residential camp counselor, teaching archery, nature, and new games to children of all ages.

I currently work as a substitute teacher in a number of different school districts across central New Jersey. My experiences have underscored the importance of developing a strong personal and working relationship with students. Even a small connection with a teacher can motivate a student to strive to produce quality work. I've long found helping a child learn something new -- whether it be a tricky math concept, throwing a baseball, or folding socks -- to be a highly rewarding endeavor. Please contact me if I might be of any assistance!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a certificate to teach grades K-6 in the state of New Jersey, as well as a Master of Education degree from Rutgers University. I have worked with children in a variety of settings and am excited to begin a long term assignment in a third grade classroom.
