About Michelle

**Price break available on rate! If you are in Carol Stream OR can meet at the Carol Stream library (or very nearby similar location), rate is only $38/hour! Online tutoring is also $38/hour!**

***Special note for July and August 2016 tutoring: ONLY online lessons available during these two months.***

Hello/Bonjour, potential student! I am a former high school teacher of 5 1/2 years that would like to help you with various subjects. I was a French teacher, but I also did official district homebound instruction (for students that cannot attend regular high school for health related reasons) for 2 years as well. I also tutored officially after school for students on campus, again in various subjects. I have been tutoring through WyzAnt for 7 1/2 years now and very much enjoy it!

My philosophy of tutoring is to tailor the lessons to meet your needs. Every student learns in his or her own way and I do my best to present the topics in the way that works best for you.

I have both lived and taught (English as foreign language) in France, and enjoy helping students from all different backgrounds. I graduated from Missouri State University with a 3.62 overall (4 point scale), thus I feel that I am qualified to tutor in many areas. At the end of December 2014, I earned my Masters in Educational Technology, with distinction.

I look forward to helping you achieve success in your subjects, so please contact me as soon as you are ready to learn!

Online tutoring hours available for late night help, even on short notice--just ask!

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored numerous students in ACT; average improvement of score is 3-5 points (see testimonials).

Algebra 1

Before I knew I was going to teach French, I was originally going to become a math teacher. I have had numerous students tell me that I should teach math, as they really enjoy my step-by-step, simple breakdown method. I have helped a lot of people conquer their fear of math.

Algebra 2

Before I knew I was going to teach French, I was originally going to become a math teacher. I have had numerous students tell me that I should teach math, as they really enjoy my step-by-step, simple breakdown method. I have helped a lot of people conquer their fear of math.

French

I used to be a high school French teacher and lived in France for a while; I am fluent and have a near native accent (Parisian).

Prealgebra

Inquisitive to student's situation and very adaptable to providing help needed. — Speaking for my daughter, but, from what I could see, just one session brought down her defenses, made her more open to actually learning.... and then realizing she knows more than she gave herself credit for. Michelle has a great straightforward, yet patient approach which I think is great. ...
