About Mikal

Hello and congratulations on going above and beyond to seek out tutoring to better yourself and your education! I graduated Towson University in 2012 with a double major in English and Secondary Education and am currently getting my Masters in English at Notre Dame University of MD. I have been a teacher for over 4 years now at Deep Creek Middle School in Baltimore County, and have experience teaching at the high school level for over a year as well, so I am perfectly comfortable tutoring students from as early as the 6th grade level all the way up to adults. I have specific experience with tutoring outside of the realm of teaching to a class of students. For 2 years I helped organize and run an Afterschool Reading Tutorial Program at my school in which I worked closely with students who struggled in the areas of Reading, Writing, and other specific literacy and comprehension skills. This program was a major success; for the students who consistently came at least once-twice a week, 95% increased in their grades in their Language Arts and Reading classes, as well as improved their scores on PARCC and MAP testing.

I love tutoring because I BELIEVE in it. I have seen the benefits first hand of how teaching in a more one-on-one environment can not only make students more successful in school, but more confident as individuals in general. Every student has the ability to grasp any content, no matter how challenging it may be, or how little interest the student has in it. It is the job of me, the tutor, to MAKE students see the value in what they are learning by being creative, and adapting to the students needs and interests to motivate and engage them in their own learning experience. Learning CAN BE FUN, and create life-long seekers of knowledge.

English, Literature, Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, SAT Prep

Becoming proficient in English provides individuals with a wide array of skills and talents that can apply to ANY career. It can increase your vocabulary, helping you to speak and write professionally in any setting, and can give you the edge over the competition when creating and submitting resumes. The value that comes with being proficient in English is honestly endless.

If you are a student or parent of a student seeking extra support or assistance in the areas of English and Reading, or an adult simply looking to improve upon those areas, then I believe I can not only fulfill but exceed those expectations. Please contact me to learn more about my services and schedule a lesson today!
