Hi, I’m Michael! I’m a kind and dedicated all-around academic coach from the United States. I studied English language and literature at the University of Maryland, but later branched out to also teach math, science, ToK, and art to students in public and private schools on three continents. I’m passionate about pedagogy and have studied various approaches to teaching, both mainstream and alternative.
I’m sensitive to different learning styles and I like to tailor my lessons accordingly. I am a firm believer that every challenge is an opportunity for growth and integration. My goal, regardless of the subject, is to help students find intrinsic value in what they are learning and to develop their own motivation and confidence to succeed.
I specialize in: general subjects, math, IB extended essay, TOK, English, and humanities.
I’m from the USA and I speak English, German, and Spanish.
