About Michaeline

My favorite part of teaching/tutoring is working with clients. I believe that every child is gifted in intricate and unique ways and a good tutor can identify and utilize those intricacies. I have worked with children for over 10 years which has given me great insight into the ways their minds and worlds operate. I currently work for the cities of Palo Alto and San Jose where I teach earth, life, and physical science. My background however is in Literature, as I received my Bachelors of Art in English with a minor in communications. During my time in college I served as a teaching assistant for a variety of public speaking and media classes which has left me with solid written and verbal communication.

As someone who was not always a model student I intimately understand the challenges and frustrations that can come with learning new and difficult material. It is because of my personal academic struggles that I can not only empathize and identify with students, but help them overcome and surpass whatever roadblocks they are facing.

Background in English and Communications. Excellent reading comprehension/speed reading skills. Previously competed and placed in extemporaneous speech competitions.

Experience teaching life, earth and physical science. A sample of concepts taught include: zoology, animal classification, arthropods, rock cycle, speed/friction, viscosity, capillary action, kinetic and potential energy, biomes and ecosystems, water cycle, earthquakes and more.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I strive to make learning not only fun, but practical and palatable as well. "Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much"
