About Michael

I have a deep passion and love of learning and teaching. I have spent most of my adult life attending college, obtaining my Master's in 2014 in Asian Studies, with a special focus on Chinese Language and Literature. I am currently attending SHU for my PhD in Higher Education Leadership. I am also becoming TESOL certified with an expected completion of fall 2016.

My goal is to meet wonderful students with an excitement for learning as much as I have. I hope that I can impart some of my knowledge to others and help them grow, just as so many teachers have helped me through the years and continue to do so.
I want to make sure that you achieve the goals that you have set forth, so after you communicate them to me, I will design a specialized lesson plan to guide you to those goals. I treat this with the utmost professionalism, and will make sure to provide feedback to help you grow after each lesson.
My base rate is $30 per hour in person, $20 per hour online. If you have multiple people for a group lesson all in one location, I can offer a lower rate for the group.

I have studied Mandarin Chinese for nearly 10 years now. I have been to China several times and my Master's degree had a deep focus and study of the language and culture. I am very passionate about the language and not only want to help you grow in learning the language, but help you learn the tips and tricks that have helped me along the way. Since this language is very different from English, it can take a different style of study to help you achieve success.

I have been training for the past year in becoming TESOL Certified. I have acquired skills in helping an English Language Learner achieve the level of competency that they wish to have. If you have a real goal of passing an English exam or would like to become more fluent, I would be excited to help you achieve those goals. I also offer public speaking preparation and practice. I often publicly speak with my job, prepare PowerPoint presentations, and can give assistance in those that wish to learn how to speak effectively for a presentation.

Please contact me and we can work together to achieve the academic level of success you wish to have!

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.

Chinese

I have a Master's in Asian Studies with an special emphasis on Chinese language and literature. I volunteer tutoring friends and other current students in the program at the beginner levels. I have been to China several times, and bring not only the language experience, but my depth of knowledge when it comes to culture and history to add more to each lesson. My main method is to take a language that can be very difficult for a westerner to learn and make it both fun and engaging, with focusing on the 4 F's to keep students attention (food, festival, fashion, folklore), then dig deeper as their knowledge expands.
