My name is Michael and I'm from the United States. I grew up near Chicago. I have a Bachelor of Science degree and I used to work with computer programming, statistics, and marketing strategy in an advertising company. However, I earned my Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificate and decided to pursue teaching. I really love languages and wanted to work with them.
Besides languages, I'm very interested in health and wellness, exercise, food, coffee, and travel.
As your teacher, I want to have you speaking a lot in your lessons. This is how you can get the most value from our time together. Speaking a lot is necessary to improve in a language and it is the hardest language skill to practice on your own. I want to make the lessons as conversation like as possible. However, I am more than capable to answer questions or explain grammar if this is what you are seeking. You will also benefit from our interaction by hearing a native speaker speak the language. Over time, you will absorb my sentence structure, word choice, phrasing etc.
I'm excited to share my language with you and I look forward to seeing you!
