English composition teacher with 20+ years experience offering tutoring, editing, and small classes in Salt Lake City.

Methodology

I use a process based approach, teaching writing as a series of drafts instead of a one-shot finished product. When possible, I let students choose their topic. Commenting on papers has always been my most effective individualized teaching tool.

Background

I have been teaching high school and college students for over 20 years and have been highly successful in improving students' writing skills, passing rates, and college success. Many former high school students who have gone on to college have let me know how prepared they felt for college writing.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $25/h

Details

$25/hour for feedback on papers and editing.

I’ve know Mike for almost 30 years and he has worked for us as a climbing guide and instructor. In addition to working with adults, he has taught our youth climbing camps for years. He is the favorite instructor of our teens. He has a great sense of humor, is a tremendous instructor and is passionate about climbing and working with youth. He is compassionate, understanding and helpful.

My daughter had the great luck to not only have Mike for an English teacher, but also for an advisor and mentor. Mike has a great rapport with his students. He mentorship style incorporates strong academic support and encouragement for students to have confidence in their own abilities. You truly won't find better than Mike!

You will not find a more brilliant, patient, and caring instructor.

As a sulky and an excruciatingly shy teenager, I benefited greatly from Mike’s individualized teaching style. His classes encouraged critical thinking skills and creativity, which set me up for success in my undergraduate and master’s degree programs. In short, I would not be where I am today—a UC Berkeley communications director—if it were not for Mike’s genuine dedication to his students.

I first studied with Mr Kaserman in 8th grade and was in his classes for 4 years. Mike is a teacher who knows how to listen to his students and cater to their needs, he's open minded and soft-spoken, but he knows when to be serious. If Mike was a professor at my college, I'd sign up for his class in a heartbeat.

Nala

Mike taught me high school English. I'm now a professional journalist.

Mike was always kind and supportive, and he made the challenges he set for students feel fun rather than stressful. His classes were rigorous, energizing and inspiring. He is a superb teacher. I recommend him without hesitation.

Brady

Mike is extremely relatable and caring towards his students. He has a compassionate attitude while making sure the job gets done. Mike guided me in writing papers and gave feedback that could be easily applied. After learning with Mike, I came a long way in my writing skills and became more confident in my ability to deliver a message on paper.

Mike was a fantastic teacher at my high school. He's a super Superprof. He's teaching style is very welcoming and productive. I took a lot away from his classes that I wasn't expecting to, most of the things I learned from his classes are still with me now. I 10/10 recommend Mike Kaserman.

Todd

He's been a teacher and guiding for a long time and is patient people.

Mike Kaserman helped me when I was struggling with math. He understands that each student learns in a different way and tailors his lessons to the individual. Mike is a great man and great teacher.

Naomi

Mike was my English professor for two years when I was in high school. The mentorship he provided has stayed with me throughout my academic career. Thanks to the writing skills he helped me to develop in high school, I had no issue writing undergraduate level papers. Even now, those honed writing skills are getting me through my graduate degree!
