Michael DiGiacomo


My name is Michael DiGiacomo, and I am a native New Yorker. I have been helping language students learn English since the early 1990's. I began my formal language-teaching career in Sendai, Japan in 1994. Since then, I have worked in the ESL field as an instructor, a teacher trainer, an academic director, and a language school director. In 2004, I earned an MBA in Global Management. Now, I am the owner of Happy English, an English tutoring company in New York City. I teach students from all over the world here in New York, and online in their country.

The world is a diverse, multicultural, and exciting place to live. When you have the confidence to communicate, you can really enjoy international travel, meet new friends and even advance your career. Happy English was started to provide you with the opportunity to learn practical English language skills and build speaking confidence. My English tutoring is ideal for language students, homemakers, and business professionals who want to brush-up their English.

The Happy English mission is to connect the global community by helping people learn to speak English fluently and confidently. I believe that language study should be both enjoyable and practical, so I provide English instruction in a comfortable, professional atmosphere focused on each student's individual needs.
