Share 10 Facts About Good Parenting
MichaelM 2015-12-15 07:05
As every teacher knows, most children reflect their parents in attitude, life priorities, life skills and relationship skills. I have come to the conclusion that when I teach a child, I'm far more interested in the attitude of the parent than I am in the abilities of the child. Even a child who is not a good student can turn around and become one so long as they are guided properly by parents and teachers. Here are 10 facts I know about good parenting. I know these facts from having raised tw ...

Share FREE SAT Training In China
MichaelM 2015-12-6 06:28
My biggest dream in China is helping students achieve more to create a better future for themselves. My design has always been to reach those students who are dedicated enough to think big and work hard for success. I don't think it should matter whether your family is rich or poor in order for you to get a great education. (In fact, I've had numerous offers from one billionaire and another who is worth more than $500 million, who have invited me to come to the more affluent areas of my city in ...

Share Big Secret To Better Education
MichaelM 2015-11-30 04:50
Recently, one of my students' mother left a message for me on WeChat (weixin) that says what I've known since I came to China, four years ago. She said, "Michael教学有方,孩子们在愉快中学习,事半功倍。" (Youdao Translation: Michael teaching ability, the children in a happy learning, get twice the result with half the effort.) For 15 years, I owned a school in the USA that used this method and we produced hundreds of students who went on to some of the most excellent colleges and u ...

Share Easy English: Your Child Is Smart, But...........
MichaelM 2015-11-17 04:33
If there was one thing that I would change about the wonderful culture of China, it would be this. There is one thing that I see that is holding back your child. It is something that is taught to them very young and it is something that holds them back when they are older. What am I talking about? I'm talking about the fear of 'losing face.' It is a something that is taught that will hold your child back from being all that he/she can become. I see it ...

Share Easy English: Making English Learning Faster, Easier and More Fun
MichaelM 2015-11-14 05:14
In learning any language, you can make it your plan to work hard in order to become good in that language. However, working hard isn't always good enough. I've met many students here who work very hard and still cannot learn English well. I often hear about English training schools who are good at teaching grammar , yet, I quickly discover that even the teachers still find it very hard and often use it wrong. In the West, we like to say, 'work smart ' instead of just wo ...

Share Practical English Learning
MichaelM 2015-10-30 04:28
When I first came to China, I spent 20 hours over two weekends teaching more than 300 Chinese English teachers in Henan how to teach English to their students. Many of them readily admitted that they didn't teach English by having their students to speak. When I asked them why they didn't, they also shyly admitted that it was not a skill that they had acquired themselves. They also were quick to tell me of their own ongoing struggles with English grammar, remembering vocabulary and pronun ...

MichaelM 2015-10-28 08:07
Every day, I'm in contact with students who have the dream of studying abroad. Most of them want to study in America. They are working hard to fulfill this dream every day. Presently, there are 300,000 Chinese students studying in America alone. That number will double in the next 4 years. There are three main focuses that they must have to study abroad. 1. They must prepare themselves to communicate fluently in English. Students who will study abroad usually are inadequately prepared in ...

Starting next fall, the W. P. Carey School of Business will offer full scholarships to all incoming full-time M.B.A. students. Their goal is to attract many different students from varying backgrounds, ethnic and economic conditions. Their desire is to change the face of the MBA program. The present costs run from $54,000 a year for in-state residents and nearly $90,000 a year for international students. They considered what it would be like for students who no longer saw cost as an obstac ...

Don't Go To Harvard (or Yale, or Stanford, or MIT, or Princeton......)
Most Chinese students who have a dream to study at a highly prestigious university in America have their eyes set on the likes of Harvard, Princeton or perhaps Stanford. They want to go to the 'best' school so that they can carry away the honor of having attended the best college or university in the world. While it is true that any of these top schools (especially the Ivy League schools in the USA) would possibly give you the best education in the world, there is another way to look at college ...
