About Michelle

I am a professional educator. You know the old adage, "Those who can ... do, those who can't ... teach". That saying has always bothered me because it implies that teaching is a fall back to what one really wanted to pursue. Well, it is not a fall back for me. I am a professional educator, akin to the professional student. I have been guiding students to achieve their goals in one forum or another for over 20 years. I began my journey as a peer tutor for other students in my high school. I then became a teacher in the public school system. My journey became complete as a college professor. Education has always been my first love.

I challenge my students to reach new understandings; to accomplish what was once thought impossible. I have taught the emotional and hormonal middle schooler to the adult with a full time job and family going back to school. I have helped them all and I can help you. I am qualified to tutor general education classes, elementary education, English, Mathematics, law related subjects, and test prep.

Although my schedule is flexible, I do require 24 hour cancellation notice. I will be more than happy to offer a make up session.

If you are looking for more than someone to help you with a specific subject, if you are looking for someone to guide you and provide you with study skills, and life skills, then I am the educator for you. I look forward to speaking with you.

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.

If memory serves me correctly I earned a perfect score on the ACT math section. I have tutored other students for years on this test.
