« Michael and I met at the university i was attending and we have been friends for over ,40 years. In all these years he never acted or said anything to betray our friendship. I am a certified teacher and i have seen Michael teach. He iis sn engaging and friendly teacher, but very serious about seeing that each student was learning the subject being taught. He was always well prepared and always had a great sense of humour when dealing with the students. He is a trustworthy teacher for sure and I highly recommend him! Bonnie Lyons Cohen. »

Levels
  • All Levels

I have a deep love of History and Geography, have Masters degrees in Asian Studies and Library Science.

Methodology

My teaching method is to not just give historical dates and facts, but to make those I teach share the passion I have for my subjects. The point is to make it fun, not something to be endured.

Background

I was a reference librarian for seventeen years, so dabbled in many subjects. My specialty with my Asian Studies degree was 20th Century China. I'm a writer outside of my rent paying job and just published an interpretation of a history book on Amazon. A decade ago, I taught a continuing education class in Chinese History at Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona.
