I took several classes with Mike for a preparation of an interview language test. He helps me to find my problem and come up with solutions. After several lessons with him, I can feel the change. I highly recommend him if you want to improve your English to a higher level.

Michael is a brilliant teacher who has helped me during my IELTS journey (my first time taker's results are L 8.5, R 8.5, W 7.0, S 7.0). Also, Michael has helped me a lot while working together on my essay mistakes when I applied to top-10 UK universities and to the Chevening Scholarship. I believe Michael is the best English teacher I have ever had!

Michael is an amazing teacher who is very professional. He reviewed my homework before each lesson and provided detailed feedback. Although I’ve finished my master's degree in 2019, I still struggle with academic writing. My IELTS writing score stucked at 6.5 but I need a 7. Luckily, after a few sessions with Michael, I realized that my understanding of academic writing was inadequate. I got 7 after just 11 sessions. Michael老师有很多中国学生,我也用中文留言吧:Michael非常专业,每次课前都会很细致的批作业并且给出反馈。其实我2019年就硕士毕业了,但其实学术写作方面一直有点迷茫,之前雅思写作一直卡在6.5,但是今年需要考到7。和Micheal上了几节课之后,我发现西方的写作和我小时候学的汉语作文是不一样的,11节课之后我就考到了7,而且感觉对自己之后的学术写作更自信了。如果你也和我一样有同样的迷茫,一定要和Michael上上课哦~
