About Michael

I have been a professional tutor for several years. I have tutored in different subjects such as Spanish, French, Hebrew and English in varied settings to different age groups. I use various techniques in my tutoring sessions such as flashcards, educational games, drills, skits and many more.

Not only have I tutored in this country, but additionally I lived in Honduras for three months, where I tutored adult students in English and Hebrew and also taught conversational French to Honduran teenagers.

Additional foreign language experiences include travel to France, Israel, Mexico and Guatemala. In my tutoring sessions I draw upon my various travels to enrich my students' learning.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

French

I feel I am qualified to tutor in French because I majored in French as an undergrad at Temple University. I spent a summer studying abroad in Paris at the Sorbonne. Moreover, when I was in Honduras, I taught French conversation at the Alliance Francaise of San Pedro Sula. Finally, I have tutored in French for the past 4 years and have employed several pedagogical techniques such as flashcards, drills, skits and learning reinforcement games.

Hebrew

I feel qualified to to tutor in Hebrew because I have previously taught and tutored Hebrew at a local synagogue. Also, when I was a child, I went to a Jewish day school, where I studied Hebrew everyday and as a high school student, I studied Hebrew at Gratz College. Furthermore, in previous years I have traveled to Israel, where I had the chance to converse in Hebrew with Israelis of all ages and different settings.

Spanish

I feel qualified to tutor in Spanish,because firstly, I majored in Spanish in college at Temple University. Moreover, I have tutored in Spanish for about four years and I feel very comfortable tutoring in it. Also, I have traveled to various Spanish speaking countries such as Spain, Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala, all of which have contributed to my fluency in the language and to my Hispanic cultural awareness. Finally, when I tutor Spanish, I employ useful pedagogical methods such as flashcards, drills, readings and games,which result in the student's improvement in the subject.
