About Michael

Hello all,

I am an experienced educator who has educated a variety of people in various topics. I was an English teacher in a Manhattan High School for 3 years where I taught specialized writing for the Regents, SATs, Journalism, and Literature including Literary Analysis. I was certified and am currently renewing my expired certification. I am also seeking certification in teaching Business Concepts. As a published writer myself, I am unique in engaging students in writing and turning low level writers into high level ones.

I also was a college/career counselor for GED students for a nonprofit where I taught life skills concepts such as college counseling, job readiness, and career counseling. I taught the graduates of the problem with the goal of them living a good life outside of the GED program and helping them move on with their life.

I was a tax preparer part-time at one point and was a financial sales professional also where I taught and helped people with tax concepts and financial product concepts such as insurance. This experience led me into my most recent experience with working in healthcare where I taught dialysis patients about their insurance options and programs as well as helping them to solve the issues they had with their coverage through education.

Thank You
