About Michelle

Do your palms get sweaty before a test? Have trouble sleeping the night before a big exam? Does the thought of career development overwhelm you? Feel like you're going to faint at the thought of speaking in front of an audience? Then, I'm the tutor you need!

I have over 10 years of experience as a social worker, specializing with at-risk youth. I have 13 years experience as a Personal Money Management and Career Development Coach. My tutoring skills involve life skills, study skills, career development, ACT and SAT testing prep, grammar, ESO/ESOL, reading and vocabulary. My strengths are that I am honest, patient, and kind. My goal is to help people succeed. The fact is, most people don't plan to fail, they just fail to plan. Helping people develop a plan and execute it - is my passion!

My job, as a tutor, is to help students develop a strategy of success based on individual learning styles. I can't wait to help you create your plan of successful study!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Career Development

My current profession involves career development in the finance industry. My passion is helping people figure out what they want out of a career, and assisting them with a plan to get it. There are many, many resources available to people and my history in the social services industry allows me knowledge of resources that may not be widely advertised. In my opinion, career development is much more than a test to determine your proficiency in any one industry. I feel it requires a look into "self" and creating a plan of action. I wish to change society's view of work, from living your life around a job, to having your work around your life. If you truly love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.

Public Speaking

I have been involved in public speaking for the last 20 years. In my profession, I am currently providing weekly training sessions with my team. I provide workshops for school-age children on a quarterly basis. I took public speaking classes in college, just for fun!

Study Skills

I have more than 25-years experience in teaching study skills. I started helping students learn effective study skills when I was still in high school.

I recognize that there are different learning styles and I navigate tutoring lessons to fit within an individual's learning style.

I believe that productive study skills, coupled with a positive attitude toward the learning process, are the most important assets to success in learning.
