With over 8 years of experience, I'm the perfect tutor for you if you need help with words (English, writing, essays, argument, grammar, reading) or the SAT or GRE. I scored in the 90th percentile on both of these standardized tests.
I have a Bachelor's in English, a Master's in Writing, and have worked as an associate editor/writer for over 5 years. I am currently a college writing professor at SDSU and Grossmont College and have tutored for the SAT and worked one-on-one with students in writing/reading for several years. I have also done resume writing on the side for several years if this is something you're interested in.
I would love to work with you. I am patient, good at explaining things, and flexible. Plus, I love when my students ask a lot of questions. That means they are eager to hear answers! And I try to make writing fun, although I know many people don't enjoy it! I hope to hear from you.

Michelle is an amazing writing tutor. She recently helped me with graduate school admission essays, and I was extremely impressed with her insight into what colleges are looking for. She provided me with great feedback on where my essays were lacking and gave me ideas on how to make them stronger. She was patient, caring, knowledgeable and went out of her way to help me meet my deadline. Her writing and editing skills exceeded my expectations and I will definitely use her again in the future. I would recommend Michelle to anyone who needs writing help, even strong writers will benefit from her expertise and knowledge of what teachers and school admission boards are looking for. Highly recommended!!
I was scrambling for a GRE tutor within a month of my exam test date (not the wisest decision) to get more English preparation. I had also been studying off and on out of a prep book for 2 months. Then I came across Michelle's profile on Wyzant and saw she had a great background covering English GRE prep including reading comprehension, sentence completion, and essay writing. We had 3 sessions together and over that time, Michele helped me strengthen my weak points regarding writing the GRE essays and reading comprehension. She was very knowledgeable in what she was doing and smart in testing me on the different subjects. Also what was a plus was the way she helped me find the solutions to what I was doing wrong. Overall, she not only helped me boost my English skills for the GRE, but my overall confidence for taking the test. Great tutor and I would recommend her to anybody!
Michelle B. made an amazing first impression with her positive attitude. Her willingness to answer my questions about the grad program and the GRE helped put me at ease. She was just as excited to help me as I was to receive her help.
She was a pleasure and had many useful suggestions for both, studying and taking the GRE.
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.
I’ve been a writing tutor and instructor for over 7 years. I have a Bachelor’s in English and a Master’s in Rhetoric and Writing, with an emphasis in Teaching. As an English professor at SDSU, I have read through entrance essays and graded them. I have also helped many students through Wyzant and other similar tutoring opportunities with their college entrance essays. I know the qualities readers look for and the techniques to strengthen the essay as a whole.
