« I've been taking weekly lessons with Michael for seven months now, and he is an amazing, thoughtful teacher. I wanted to write in my journal every day in English as a way to practice during the quarantine, so Michael works with me to put together thoughts using new vocabulary, make sure my sentences are well-structured, and help me to express myself in English as well as my native German (almost!). His kindness and knowledge are inspiring. »

Experienced writer and teacher committed to helping you express yourself better in English

Methodology

Everyone has different needs when it comes to language lessons, and I want to make sure my students get the instruction they need at the highest level possible.

What does that look like on a practical level?

— Currently in school?

I can help you improve your academic writing, so you can get better grades and have more fun learning.

— Looking to improve your business communications?

I can help you develop the language skills you need to write clear, persuasive emails, deliver presentations that will make the boss happy, draft reports that showcase your work, or improve the speaking skills you need to feel confident in meetings.

—Preparing for a future trip to the U.S. or Canada?

I know we won't be traveling for a while still, but now's a great time to start getting your English ready for your arrival! We'll work on conversational skills (especially how to precisely volley between listening and speaking) and get you ready to order your first dinner.

—Are you a musician or artist looking to study in the U.S. or Canada?

I have two music degrees and years of experience writing for two of New York City's best art museums. We can work on your English skills while discussing Mahler, Matisse, and Monet!

I've traveled all over the world and have studied three languages, so I know what it's like to feel frustrated when the words just aren't there quick enough! So let's partner together to figure out what your needs are — and how we can fast-track your progress.

Background

Hello, I'm Michael — a language nerd and professional wordsmith ready to help you take your English skills to the next level.

For more than 10 years I've been writing copy by day and teaching private English lessons at night (but also sometimes during the day). I love the English language and thrive on inspiring others to find their voice in this beautiful (and maddeningly complex) language.

Communication is form of creative human expression. Let's work together to make sure that you're stoking that creativity — whether it's writing an essay for school, preparing an important presentation at work, gaining confidence through conversation, or flexing those reading muscles to tackle a new novel.

I've been taking weekly lessons with Michael for seven months now, and he is an amazing, thoughtful teacher. I wanted to write in my journal every day in English as a way to practice during the quarantine, so Michael works with me to put together thoughts using new vocabulary, make sure my sentences are well-structured, and help me to express myself in English as well as my native German (almost!). His kindness and knowledge are inspiring.

I studied English with Michael for two years, and I looked forward to every lesson! I had wanted help at first with just my conversational skills, since I had only lived in New York for a few months before my lessons began. After a few months, I had gained so much confidence that I wanted to focus on writing as well. Michael worked with me on emails, job applications, and even journaling. I am so thankful for his kind spirit and great energy. He truly cares about his students doing well.
