Michael helped my daughter with the college essay process, to find her topic and develop her voice.  He went above and beyond, even finding a Chinese translator for a document she referenced. Not only was her essay the only one printed in her high school's literary magazine, she received a large merit award from her first choice college.  Thank you, Michael!

Michael was my tutor for about 6 months. He prepared me for study at Columbia University and helped me to be successful on the very challenging English exam for international students. We had repeated basic grammar rules and academic essay structure. Overall, Michael is a great instructor and easy to work with.

English was consistently my weakest subject, and now I write for a Silicon Valley company, and my writing has been published in the New York Times Sunday Review. Michael deserves most of the credit for my transition into a confident and skilled writer, as his guidance brought me from struggling to keep up with my assignments to getting a 5 on my AP Language exam.
