About Michael

About Michael
Tutoring and teaching have been passions of mine for my entire adult life. I employ a social constructivist approach, which means that I am always trying to consider the prior knowledge and interests of my students while creating a dynamic learning environment.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I fell into tutoring 15 years ago, when I simply could not resist helping my classmates, many of whom were international students, with their coursework. When word got back to their English professor, I was offered a teaching assistant position just like that, and I've never looked back. I've worked with students from age 8 to adult, students with disabilities and from all backgrounds. I spent a year in rural Thailand as a classroom teacher, and I'm currently finishing a TESOL certification through Arizona State University.
