About Michael

I have over ten year's experience teaching and have worked with a great variety of students from around the world. I have taught ESL (English as a Second Language), ABE (Adult Basic Education), and GED Preparation. My master's degree is in Art History (Southern Methodist University, 2000). I continually work to increase and improve my education by continual reading and reflection.

When I work with students one-on-one, I am patient and generous with time. This setting helps me to make gentle corrections, corrections that must be persistent but kind. It also helps the student to find his or her own voice and to refine the ideas, and their expression, that have been developing. Educating our citizens, young and old alike, is a responsibility that I take with great seriousness, but education is also the time for humor, wonder, and openness to questions. I encourage all of these things and like to instill a sense of the importance of education.

Michael is intuitive and cultured, perfect for a continuing dialogue on art.

It is fantastic to have an artist guide you through new ways of seeing, especially when that artist's vast culture, which includes music and literature, permits him to provide useful analogies through an array of references.
