Coach Michael

My name is Michael and I am an economics graduate student at California State University Fullerton who has recently finished my course work. After 6 years of economics studies, I am now looking to use my accumulated knowledge to help you. I have also had extensive work experience in the field of economics both as a researcher on several papers that will be published in the coming year and as an economic consultant in the private industry. I can help in both Macro and Microeconomics, as well as various other economic fields. During my time in college I was also captain of the speech and debate team and won over 30 speaking awards, including a national championship. My experience in speech and debate gave me a firm grasp on public speaking and argumentation which I can impart to you. Contact me if you are interested in a friendly and outgoing tutor. I look forward to helping you reach your maximum potential.
