About Michael

You are not likely to find a tutor with more teaching experience, better teaching credentials, or a greater love of learning and the education process. I earned a Ph.D. and a Masters degree from the University of California at Berkeley and have taught college-level English for nearly three decades. I have published hundreds of pieces, taught and advised students at all levels, and earned awards for my writing and teaching. In short, I have devoted my life to education and to helping to educate others.

As a tutor, I try to tailor my approach to match each particular student's needs. Students have a variety of learning styles and respond differently to different materials and environments. I work with students to determine their strengths and weaknesses, and to build on their strengths while addressing in a variety of ways the areas they need to work on. I believe strongly in this approach and have seen it work with all types of students. My students have gone on to be successful professors, physicians, attorneys, and heads of corporations.

I have taught writing and reading for three decades at the college level. I understand and can communicate the skills needed to write and read at this advanced level. Tests can be intimidating and preparing for them can be hard work, but the process can also be fun. I can help students be both more productive in their studies and more successful in their work.

You can work hard and have fun. More successful students are happier students and generally live more fulfilling and productive lives. Don't postpone your future. Schedule lessons now and prepare to learn and have fun.
