Hello! I’m Michael

Hello, my name is Michael. I am from the United States of America, specifically North Carolina.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina with a BA in mathematics.
Aside from my teaching, I also love traveling, spending quality time with my family, watching movies, sailing, and playing golf.

During my 10 years of teaching, I have had the privilege of teaching all core subjects: math, science,
English, and social studies to students of all ages around the world. I served as the ESL director at

My primary goal as a teacher is to create an educational environment that is not only informative and
educational but also fun, it really fuels each learner’s desire to seek knowledge. So, if you want A+
