About Mike

I am very knowledgeable about U.S. history. It was by far my best subject in school. I scored a 90 or higher on all of my U.S. history tests.

I am very personable and easy to work with. I recognize that everyone learns differently, and I am able to get the best performance out of students by adapting to their individual learning styles. Learning should be enjoyable (or as enjoyable as possible), and not drudgery. The best teachers that I had were the ones that made the subject matter interesting and meaningful. On another note, I am also very knowledgeable about ADHD and other learning related issues. I find it rewarding to help people overcome obstacles.

I received my Bachelor's degree (B.A.) in Communications from Marist College, with a double minor in Psychology and Global Studies. I graduated cum laude from Marist with a 3.3 GPA. While in college, I spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy, where I studied Art History and Italian. Prior to college, I attended Niskayuna High School. Niskayuna is one of the better public high schools in New York State. Since completing my education, I have been working in the private sector.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have and provide references, etc. On a personal note, I am an avid tennis player and a hockey fan. I live in Albany, NY.
