About Michele

Hello!
Thank you for viewing my profile!

I have 20 years of experience teaching ESL, Test Preparation, Writing, and Business English. I am currently tutoring several adults in private ESL classes. I am also tutoring many middle/high school students in ACT, SAT, and TOEFL. I am often hired by parents to help their middle school or high school children improve their grades and/or writing skills.

Having lived and taught overseas for many years, I am very skilled at adapting my lessons to students of different nationalities, skill levels, and ages. My students are primarily Chinese, Korean, Brazilian, Thai, Japanese, Saudi Arabian, Mexican, and Russian.

My classes are based on your needs. Whether you need to improve your conversation and pronunciation or your grammar/writing, I will have clearly organized lessons to help you achieve your goals.
If you need help with homework or want to prepare for a test, I am sure that I can help you improve and succeed!

I will provide a whiteboard for practice and any needed textbooks, activities, and exercises. My activities and interactions with you will be designed to help you focus on your specific language needs.

I believe that my lessons will help you improve your English significantly and give you the confidence to speak more fluently with native speakers.


I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
