About Me
italki teacher since Mar 24, 2022
Hello! My name is Michael and I am from New York! Regarding my work, I lived and worked in Saint Petersburg, Russia for nearly five years as an English teacher. Now, I currently do the same but in Tbilisi, Georgia. I enjoy helping people communicate more effectively in English and helping them feel free enough to succeed. I mainly prepare IT workers for interviews, coach students for IELTS and SELTS exams, advance the level of English of students, and more! Also, I'm a New York City professionally trained actor. I have acted in the theater, film, voiceover, and more! I love sharing this side of me with students and I sometimes teach acting on here as well.

I always enjoy having classes with Michael. His classes are always fun, interactive, and efficient with the help of multiple learning materials. In addition, Michael is always helpful and he even spent some time after the class and helped me look at my paper. It is such a honor and pleasure to be his student.

I loved my first Acting Technique lesson with Mike - it is much more than what I expected. While I have zero intention to become a professional actor, I believe that mastering the technique (including the voice over exercises - so much fun!) will transform my communication skills in English. The Oscar of Best Performing Actor-Teacher goes to.... Mike! Looking forward to our next lessons. Thank you!

Thank you very much for the lesson, I enjoyed it a lot! Being an English teacher myself I highly appreciated the activities that were challenging enough while being fun and engaging. I would recommend Michael as a teacher to anyone who wants to become a more confident speaker and improve their pronunciation.
