About Michael S

My teaching/tutoring career began when I was a substitute teacher in Tampa, Florida. Visiting different schools everyday introduced me to the world of students, teachers and teamwork in the classroom. I have also had the joy of serving as a United States Peace Corps Volunteer, teaching English as a foreign language in Mongolia.

This was a very exciting time in my life; not only was I able to be an ambassador of American culture, and teach English from middle to high school grades, I also learned, in turn, to speak Mongolian and ride a horse, not to mention, make one mean frying-pan pizza.

Upon returning to the USA, I have continued to tutor privately with groups and single students, ages ranging from grade school to adult. I am always challenged by my students' ideas and questions, and I try to see each and every tutoring experience as opportunity, not only for the students' learning, but also for my own growth. I am student too, currently studying Spanish.

I have a B.A. in American/British Literature and Writing from the University of South Florida. Although, I do not have a history degree, I am a real history buff. I love reading about, and discussing, all types of history from all places and eras.
