I also studied abroad in Spain for a semester so I would be able offer insight into Spanish culture as well as teaching the language.

I can see why he was accepted to Yale. Michael is a highly qualified tutor as he is incredibly smart and very thoughtful in his approach to working with his students. He is the perfect match for my son who is a high achieving student yet really struggles with writing-- creatively -- and having majored in literature, Michael was able to help him immensely. I am sure that Michael will be able to help students of many levels and in numerous subjects. If anyone is looking to hire someone to help their child in English, writing, editing, and Spanish. he's your guy!
