About Michelle

As a graduate student of School Psychology, I studied how people think and learn, as well as methods and interventions to enhance learning based on each individual's unique needs and abilities. In addition, I have graduate level expertise and many years of experience with standardized testing and special needs populations. My experience includes work in preschool, elementary school, high school, and college settings. Currently, I am employed by an institution of higher education working directly with their students who need assistance with college level coursework in the areas of math, statistics, accounting, business, health sciences, nursing, and study skills.

My approach to learning is to first assess the student's current achievement level including knowledge and skills as well as deficits and obstacles to learning. In addition to explaining difficult concepts and practicing skills, sessions will help students to develop study and learning strategies and to develop resources that they can utilize independently at home or in the classroom.

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.

Anthropology

I have an undergraduate minor degree in Anthropology.

Study Skills

I have a Masters of Education and specialist degree in School Psychology from Temple University. The program is accredited by both the National Association of School Psychologist (NASP) and the American Psychological Association (APA). My degree focused on administration and interpretation of standardized tests and measurements of academic skills, evaluation and remediation for students with disabilities, and development of the Individualized Education Plan (IEP). In addition, I have over ten years of experience working as a school psychologist in public schools as well as implementing therapy in a psychiatric hospital setting. I have worked with preschool age children through adults. Currently, I am work with struggling college students at the academic success center at Broward College. My work includes advising and assisting students to improve their study skills.
