Michael tutored me while I was in the process of getting my Masters at Cal State Fullerton. I needed DESPERATE help in my conversational speaking and proficiency. Most times in public or during classes, people often didn't understand me. Even my Professors! This was SO humiliating. When I asked around, Michael was actually very highly recommended by certain groups of my friends from CSUF.
We finally met for a 2-hour session, and by the end, when I went outside to walk to my apt, I suddenly felt like I experienced something amazing - it just felt so new, so good. Following our 2nd session, I realized that Michael was a real prodigy. Things I asked and found out about him was that he still entered recitals and competitions in classical piano, attended 2 grades his senior in mathematics (but didn't care for it), seemed to know and analyze every book I was familiar with, etc. He seems to have a gift of being able to systematize or track my personal progress: From exactly where I stood & precisely what to do next, and even know if I did the past week's assignments (dedicated I was & how much I should have improved).
Michael DOES know the very best, quickest, & most efficient ways of surpassing my goals, but though he is genuinely one of the greatest motivators I have heard (explaining precisely why this or that is so essential) he cannot do the work outside for me. But as our sessions continued, I WANTED to dedicate myself to all of Michael's assignments, and this time for myself, esp coming from an extremely high achieving and wealthy family (me being the highest achiever). Michael also taught me that giving thought to my ultimate goals, that the greater they are realistically, the BETTER you will naturally double your progress, and only now I see how important this was. America has the best opportunities, because it's so free & independent. And I feel that I can be much, much more than I am right now! I have never had such feeling like this ever before in my life, where I feel I can do anything!
And with everything I learned from Michael the necessary knowledge, wisdom, dedication, and now the full independent ability to continue my conversational proficiency, I KNOW that there is nothing I cannot learn on my own now. He just reviewed the pure strategies that could take me to as high a level of complete conversational speaking as I desired, and that the strategies/techniques were now a part of me (which they were). That was our last session. During earlier ones, I learned to be totally fearless, and to not even care about what other people thought of me. The first time that I have ever experienced this in my life. The reason this occurred is because I was now so trusting of Michael's assignments. So it happened very naturally.
Out of all countless tutors I've ever had, I would say that Michael is probably the best Tutor I have ever had well, without a doubt, he has helped me the most, and even in every area of my life. But this is subjective, so I will qualify it by saying that in my opinion, Michael is the best tutor I have ever had, and this includes the numerous Professional Tutors I had since I was a child all the way up to now. This may be difficult to believe, but he even has an extremely well-deserved reputation among certain academic circles among CSUF graduates which, to me, is completely unheard of for any Professional Tutor. In fact, my friends at CSUF went through very similar experiences when he Professionally Tutored them in their different academic subjects, such as Writing, Reading Comprehension, Proofreading, and Editing.
It's difficult to write a short review when you're so enthusiastic, but Michael just cared so much about me and my improvement until I'm where I am now. I feel like my whole life is so positively changed, and that my new ability to speak, my confidence, and potential are now totally endless - I can freely do whatever I'd like to do and pursue any dream, no matter how difficult!
