About Michelle


Bio

During the past twenty years, I've worked for a national tutoring company, taught for a private school and been an in-home tutor predominantly in the area of middle and high school mathematics. My experience runs from 6th grade math and pre-algebra all the way through advanced and applied calculus. I have extensive training with the SAT, ACT, ASVAB, and other aptitude tests like the SBAC and GED. My students will tell you there's no way I could be a math teacher because "they just get it"...

During the past twenty years, I've worked for a national tutoring company, taught for a private school and been an in-home tutor predominantly in the area of middle and high school mathematics. My experience runs from 6th grade math and pre-algebra all the way through advanced and applied calculus. I have extensive training with the SAT, ACT, ASVAB, and other aptitude tests like the SBAC and GED. My students will tell you there's no way I could be a math teacher because "they just get it" when I explain.

A few things about me:
• My degree is in math.
• I've taught professionally and privately.
• I have a proven history of improving student scores and maintaining high class averages.
• I would rather show students why something works than only how to follow the steps.
• I don't expect my students to love learning like I do or to do it "my way".
• I want students to be aware that learning isn't "scary", they can "get it" and also enjoy discovering something new.

A few things about how I teach:
• I explain every step and every detail.
• I do assessments to determine what a student truly needs from a tutor.
• I base new instruction on demonstrated student knowledge.
• I always tie in new concepts with the old, if possible.
• I make sure students are comfortable enough to work on their own before I leave.
• I will help students learn mental shortcuts, use a calculator and think logically.

The bottom line is: I love watching my students succeed.
