About Michelle

Hello. My name is Michelle and I have been teaching at the elementary level for 15 years. Currently, I am a Reading Specialist for PUSD. I have a Masters in Curriculum and Teaching which allows me to be very educated in meeting the learning needs of all learners. I have worked with many English language learners, children with ADD/ADHD, and students with many different learning styles. I love children and am very passionate about teaching. I have a lot of patience, am able to read children fairly quickly, am very successful at teaching reading and writing, and want children to have fun while learning. Although my area of expertise is in kindergarten through fourth grade, I have also worked with older children on occasion. I would love to work with your child and have fun while learning! Hello.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught Kindergarten for 10 years, 1st grade for 2 years, 4th grade for 5 years, and am currently a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach for a K-6 campus. I prepare lesson materials and resources, select instructional methods, adapt standard teaching methodologies to meet student needs and interests and provide an environment conducive to learning for all students. I also lead multiple teacher training sessions and programs on a district-wide level in the areas of reading and writing.

Phonics

I am currently a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach for a K-6 campus where I work with our at-risk readers as well as coach/mentor teachers in the area of reading and writing instruction. I have 15 years of teaching experience at the K-4 level with 10 of those years in kindergarten. I have extensive experience in the area of reading instruction which includes guided reading and reading recovery.

I have 15 years of experience at the K-4 level where I have worked with students/parents on the importance of developing/implementing good study skills. This includes encouraging students/parents to set aside a specific homework/study time each day, encourage the importance of reading every day, and making the home to school connection with families. I worked with students on taking responsibility and the importance of accountability.
