About Michael

My love of tutoring is based on my sincere interest in helping people to develop key skills to be successful in their lives. I am patient and believe in creating a positive and fun learning experience tailored to each student. Whether you are an elementary, high school, or college student, a seasoned professional already out in the work force, or a retiree thinking about writing a book, being able to communicate effectively in writing and when speaking is always going to be critical to your personal and professional success.

Reading, writing, research, and communicating effectively are my passions. I have a BA in International Affairs from George Washington University and an MA in Communications, Public Affairs, and Journalism from American University. In addition to advanced communication skills and training, I also have extensive experience with cross cultural communications. I grew up all over the world and I have lived, worked, or studied in Jordan, Indonesia, Taiwan, Germany, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, Panama, Haiti, and Afghanistan. Because of my background, I am very comfortable working with a diverse student population.

If you need help with essays or research papers, developing and supporting a thesis, APA style, proofreading, or want to improve your reading or writing skills, I will work with you to share my strengths in these areas to rapidly improve your skills. If you are a student participating in Model United Nations (MUN), I can help you to research the country or issues assigned to you and polish your public speaking skills. I am also a freelance screenwriter and I have completed the American University School of Communications Summer Film and Video Institute Certificate in Film and Video Production program. I have done corporate video productions and supported independent and Hollywood feature films. So, if creative writing is an area you wish to explore or improve, I would welcome the opportunity to help you to take your writing to the next level!
