Award Winning Author of Goodbye Tchaikovsky Can Help You With Your Writing Woes

I have a BA degree in History from the University of New York at Buffalo. I earned a Masters Degree in Education from Washington University, St. Louis. I also earned a Masters Degree as a Reading Specialist from California State University, Northridge.

If I have to travel to your location expect to pay $10 more per lesson.

I teach homework help, academic tutoring, reading, creative writing, resume / cover letter writing prep. Lessons are available for the following levels: primary school, junior high / middle school, sophomore, junior, senior
I give lessons in person at my home, the student's home or meeting in public locations.

Michael's Experience

I taught elementary and middle school for 28 years. After I left teaching due to a severe hearing loss I taught myself how to write. I authored over 80 articles published in print magazines such as Highlights for Children and Writer's Digest. I'm also the author of 5 published YA novels--The Koolura Series, Goodbye Tchaikovsky, and The Abduction of Joshua Bloom.

For 40 years I've also tutored children, teens, and young adults in a wide variety of subjects including writing, math, reading, and English.

Michael's resume

I've been a teacher for over 40 years helping students learn English, American Sign Language, Reading, Writing, Math, etc. I've taught thousands of students in public classrooms from Monterey Park, South Central Los Angeles, and Glendale.

I've been awarded Mentor Teacher by the Glendale Unified School District and also worked as a Teacher Specialist.

My novel, Goodbye Tchaikovsky, won Second Place in the 2015 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards and my newest novel, Koolura and the Mayans, won Second Place in the 2016 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards.
