About J Michele


Bio

I've always had a love for learning. I graduated in the top 5% of my high-school graduating class and magna cum laude from Baylor University, so I know how much dedication and hard work can pay off. I enjoy helping others learn or understand something. I especially love seeing the look in someone's eyes when he or she finally understands something that has been difficult for him or her. Growing up, I helped classmates with understanding concepts with which they had problems.

I've always had a love for learning. I graduated in the top 5% of my high-school graduating class and magna cum laude from Baylor University, so I know how much dedication and hard work can pay off. I enjoy helping others learn or understand something. I especially love seeing the look in someone's eyes when he or she finally understands something that has been difficult for him or her. Growing up, I helped classmates with understanding concepts with which they had problems.

I specialize in tutoring music subjects, math (especially upper-level math), and English. Because I have been a classical musician since I was 4 years old, I have over 30 years of school and real-world experience with violin and viola performance, music theory, music history, ear training, and other music subjects. I've also always had a love for English, and my dad has always made it a point to make sure that I know proper grammar, vocabulary, etc. In college, I almost double-majored in music and math because I've never had a difficult time with math (except for Geometry). Every student has a different learning style -- some learn by doing, others by seeing, others by hearing, and others by a combination of these. I adapt my tutoring to best suit the student. I always like to challenge students without overwhelming them.

I am always looking to improve, so I appreciate any feedback you can give me. I will also provide parents (or students) with updates after every session.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, I'm only tutoring online, at the moment. I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you succeed!

I have been a musician for over 30 years. During that time, I've taken many music history courses (high school and college) and always done very well. While taking those courses, I led study groups for my peers and helped them if they needed help.

Music

Ear Training,

Ear Training

I have been a musician for most of my life. In high school and college, I had to take ear training courses, and I always got an A. As a violin and viola teacher, I have my students use ear training all the time in their lessons. As a performing musician, I have to use my ear training skills on a daily basis.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

Michele was ready to go over material and questions that I had brought with me. She also had material for me so that she could assess what areas that I needed help with.

Shawn, 62 lessons with J Michele

Excellent tutoring!

Michele has helped my son fill in the parts of his high school math education that are wobbly, giving him a stronger foundation for college math. Highly recommend her as a tutor!

Kim, 20 lessons with J Michele

Great Tutor

J. Michele is really patient and comforting. My son said she made him want to learn and not be discouraged. We will definitely be keeping her as long as we can.

Charnella, 13 lessons with J Michele

Very helpful

Fantastic tutor. J. Michele was great at providing explanations for my daughters individual questions. She left her lessons with a clear understanding of the concepts. Very flexible when we needed additional tutoring sessions. I highly recommend her.

Terri, 26 lessons with J Michele

Helpful

Thank you for not only helping with math but for also helping us start looking toward to high school with regards to preparing for what lies ahead.

Tracey, 20 lessons with J Michele

Friendly and Patient

My 8th grade daughter had a great first session with Michele. She was friendly, patient and had a good grasp on the subject matter. I think we found the tutor we've been looking for.

Hashim, 14 lessons with J Michele

Very knowledgeable.

Michele is very knowledgeable and explains the subject well. She answered my email very quickly and was available to tutor on the same day I called her.

Joan, 2 lessons with J Michele

Great start!

Off to a great start with Michele... Jayden is excited to learn something from a math teacher instead of just being told to finish the homework with no explanation. This should help us tremendously.

Kiala, 20 lessons with J Michele

Great tutor

Michele has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra 2 and occasionally physics for the past few months and we have seen her grade in both class improve by a full letter grade. She now understands the material better and is more confident in her ability to be successful. Michele is patient and knowledgeable. She is easy to reach by text and is flexible with occasional schedule changes. She has been just what we needed this school year and I would highly recommend her as a tutor.

Kelley, 28 lessons with J Michele

Quick response and good communication

Michelle replied to every email in a timely manner, which is very important for me. She told me in advance if she can do it, when she can get things back to me and how long it's gonna take. She understood my specific needs, confirmed it with me and edited my paper in the way I asked for. She demonstrated great communication and interpersonal skills via email. She followed up with me when I didn't send her my paper on time. She could also be flexible about the rate, depending on the type of services she provided. I would highly recommend her to other students.
