About Michael


Bio

I am a retired public school teacher who spent nearly thirty-five years primarily as a Language Arts/Reading teacher. My Bachelor's Degree is in Elementary Education while my Master's certifies me as a Reading Specialist. I consider myself especially adept in the areas of comprehension, spelling and vocabulary building. I enjoy doing activities with Greek and Latin roots, synonyms and antonyms. I would also feel comfortable helping a prospective student succeed in any other curricula...

I am a retired public school teacher who spent nearly thirty-five years primarily as a Language Arts/Reading teacher. My Bachelor's Degree is in Elementary Education while my Master's certifies me as a Reading Specialist. I consider myself especially adept in the areas of comprehension, spelling and vocabulary building. I enjoy doing activities with Greek and Latin roots, synonyms and antonyms. I would also feel comfortable helping a prospective student succeed in any other curricular area, grades 4-6. In addition, I am able to instruct in the area of study skills.
If hired, I would first attempt to gather any pertinent background information on the student that would be helpful in our time together. I consider myself quite patient and gracious but also serious about achieving a desired end. I have retained many valuable resources from my years as an employed instructor.
