About Michael

Writing and language is the gateway to self-expression and self-knowledge. It is imperative that each person realize their full potential in all aspects of language proficiency, and it is incumbent for educators to cultivate good use of language. This involves speaking, writing, listening and interpretation skills - the range of ELA instruction from kindergarten thru college.

During twenty five years in the classroom, I have instructed younger students (Grades 7-12) in: basic grammar, writing, SAT prep, simple sentence and paragraph construction, reading, literature, journalism, and Advanced Placement Literature and Language. I have also taught research techniques, developmental writing and composition at the college level, and business English at an adult school ( Cittone Institute). I am happy and able to create a method for the individual student that will help him/her reach their potential in the effective use of language. Each student deserves a program that addresses this/her specific needs and identifies his/her individual skills.

As a teacher, coach, principal, and writer, I have enjoyed sharing my expertise in the English language with a broad array of students from many different socioeconomic backgrounds. I have learned that self-confidence and professional growth are augmented when a student of any age gains proficiency in the use of language. To continue this cultivation of language use with individuals who are motivated to become the best and most complete person they can be, is a professional goal which I hold dear.

The Common Core testing requirements and ELA goals can be achieved for the youngest of students, and professional acumen can be honed for older, career oriented students. I am happy to teach all ages and in all areas of language, and look forward to the challenge. An effective one-to-one tutoring experience can make a large difference in the capability and achievement of any student. I am happy to provide a first class educational experience for my students and look forward to helping them achieve their personal and professional goals.
