Michael has worked as an educational consultant, tutor, and teacher for over fifteen years. After graduating from Harvard with honors, Michael was selected to join Teach for America, which sent him to New Haven, CT to teach 11th and 12th grade English; Michael was later one of fifty American teachers chosen to pilot Israel’s first summer school program, and taught English to low-income Palestinian and Israeli children. Since relocating to Los Angeles, Michael has guided hundreds of kids to success with the college process, in their academic classes, and on the SAT, ACT, and ISEE.

Peyton graduated from Harvard with an A.B. in The History of Art and Architecture, a citation in Spanish, and a love of teaching. While at Harvard, she began volunteering at the MLK Jr. elementary school in Cambridge, which ignited her long career of tutoring and mentorship. Her academic acumen spans from teaching young children to read to guiding advanced students through college essays preparing students for the Johns Hopkins summer program for the gifted and talented. She has taught English to Spanish speakers while living abroad in Santiago, Chile, been flown to Italy to tutor writing and math, and guided countless students through test prep to Ivy league admissions. She was recently inducted into the Harvard Athletic Hall of Fame.

For seven years, Michael has been a fantastic tutor to three of our children, all with different learning styles. He is extremely intelligent, talented, and patient. He always finds a way to help my kids understand the material they are struggling with; their grades have always improved when Michael is involved. Michael genuinely cares about his students and takes the time to teach them the process of how to think and approach their work, so that they can quickly excel on their own. He is simply the best.
