About Michelle

The reason I became a tutor is because my daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia 12 years ago. At the time there was not a tutor that was affordable in our area. So, I took it upon myself to obtain the training and begin my tutoring experience. After completing the course, I became a certified tutor for students with dyslexia. The whole journey has been exceptionally rewarding.

Now, I've been tutoring for last 12 years and teaching for the past 10 years. My passion is in helping a student gain confidence and obtaining his/her educational goals. I have worked with many students of all needs over the years. Although I have tutored in all areas, my specialty is with reading, phonics, and reading comprehension of grade school aged children. I am confident that with my patience, experience and personal lesson plans for your child will assist them in gaining the confidence and ability to reach their goals.

I live in area and I am excited to work with new students and meet all the families in this area.
