"I enjoyed languages even as a teenager. I went on to get my B.A in French and study Spanish and German while in college. My experience, both academically and culturally, makes me a perfect choice for the one who is wanting to learn French or English. My linguistic background is not only theoretical but also practical. I am able to help you in all areas : reading, writing, oral comprehension and speaking, no matter your level. My teaching method is based on observation, from which I am able to create exercises and activities that inculcate positive language habits. The repetition of positive language habits supplants old ways of communicating, and you become more confident as a result. I am patient and encouraging with my students. I love my work. Let me know if you have questions." less...

Education and Qualifications

school: San Francisco State University

Welcome! I am fully bilingual, having grown up with both English and French. I am American with a B.A. in French from San Francisco State University. I taught French to undergraduates at Florida Atlantic University while pursuing my Masters degree there in French Literature. I also taught French at a private high school in South Florida. I created and administered the mid-term exams, and was responsible for choosing textbooks for my classes. I have also worked as a private French and English tutor since 1980. I have tutored also at Sacramento City College and at San Francisco State University. I work with beginners to advanced, and can address all areas of language acquisition (reading, writing, oral comprehension, and speaking). I most recently returned from China where I taught English to students and staff at Shenyang Agricultural University. My supervisor there is an excellent reference, and remains a very good friend of mine. I am currently teaching English and French privately in person and via Skype. I am very approachable and would love to hear from you. Look forward.

Rating and Reviews

"A Personable tutor"

Dealing with Michael over the last year and a half, I have always found his way of interacting with people to be just wonderful. Not only is Michael a great tutor he is also professional in his affairs. I noticed that he gives his students a free trial run on his methods before they get started. I would recommend him to anyone interested in improving English or French skills.
