My name is Michael Pavlich, and I am a high school English teacher. I hold a Master's Degree from Regis University in English with an emphasis in American Literature. I have been teaching for 6 years as a high school instructor, Pima Community College Adjunct, and Grand Canyon University Adjunct. Before I was a teacher, I was a Warrant Officer in the U.S. Army where I flew the Longbow Apache Helicopter. I learned my leadership and teaching style from my time in military, so I believe in a strong foundation of knowledge and learning by doing.
My teaching philosophy revolves around the idea that the student needs to discover knowledge in order to truly learn it; my job is to guide and advise.
My passion is in literary analysis, and along the way, I have found that I enjoy helping students with writing. I teach a very practicable approach to grammar and focus on fluidity and organization. I want my students to write so that a teacher focuses on what is being said, not how it is being said. My motto: practice makes permanent, perfect practice makes perfect.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

If I were to choose a philosophy, then it would be Socratic; however, I feel that each student is unique, and my job is to find a teaching style that works for the student, not me. So, my philosophy is adaptive.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Get to know the student in relation to the class or subject, strengths, weaknesses, and the way the students learns.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I look at myself as a facilitator. In the Socratic method, my role is to ask questions and provide tools; in this manner, students begin to teach themselves and are more successful.
