About Michael

I am a professional screenwriter, with a writing/story by credit on the Miramax feature film, "Basquiat," directed by Julian Schnabel, and starring Jeffrey Wright. Along with this important credit, I am also a winner of various awards in Film as well as Television writing and directing.

As a teacher of screenwriting for more than 12 years at numerous schools, I have had a tremendous amount of experience teaching beginning as well as advanced writers what they needed to know to write professional, creatively compelling film stories. I teach both in classrooms and in private homes to individual students. What I love most about teaching screenwriting are the moments when my students understand the craft of writing for the screen, those "Aha!" moments when the process becomes clear and not so intimidating.

I have never received anything less than positive, enthusiastic reports about my teaching style and effectiveness. And I constantly am reassured when I see students of mine achieve professional success using my writing methods and techniques.

I will guide you through the process, from finding the right story for you to write, at the stage you're at as a writer, all the way to writing a finished, feature-length, screenplay.

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.
