- To ensure each student has a positive, successful learning experience in English
- Research suggests that the most reliable indicator of success in learning a foreign language is motivation. When students know why they are studying, enjoy their classes, and feel like they are making progress, motivation is strengthened. Michael’s strong academic grounding in languages and linguistics, his experience in working with different people and living in several countries, and his compassion for fellow humans have combined to give him the ability to offer students a professional and at the same time enjoyable language learning experience.
