I have a B.A. in English from UC Berkeley and a M.A.T. with a concentration in English from Harvard. I took literature classes that ranged from Chaucer to modern American and English literature. Additionally, I took classes in European literature. I have always read widely in all types of literature and have a solid knowledge of major authors. Since I am also a student of history, I can contextualize literature for students.

Full Potential Tutoring

After 17 years of teaching English in the Los Angeles area,, I have opted to do one-on-one tutoring instead. I find it very rewarding. I am amazed at how quickly a student progresses once his or her deficiencies are discovered and remedied. Plus, the gains in self-confidence and love of learning are readily apparent. There is truth to the old saying, "A stitch in time saves nine." I hear so many heart-warming success stories from young adults who experienced tutoring at some crucial poi... [more]

AP physics, chemistry and math tutor

I was always skeptical towards test questions about an author's tone or intent. Worst were those that forced me to predict with what the author would likely agree. But the clues are all there in the choice of words and structure of sentences. Once I was able to understand it, I appreciated literature much more. I even went back and reread some of the classics later. I now admit to being a bookworm. I can't promise that you'll become a bibliophile, but I do hope to help you comprehend through close reading, historical referencing and biographical research. [more]

UCLA Professor / SAT ACT Expert

I have a BA in English and Comparative Literature and have been teaching reading and literature classes for over 15 years.

Michael currently teaches a section of an entrepreneurship course at UCLA that pertains to corporations, LLCs, and non-profit entities. He obtained a degree in English and comparative literature from CSU Fullerton in [more]
