About Michelle

I have tutored a multitude of students in a variety of settings, for a variety of reasons since beginning my career in Education 16 years ago. As a special educator, I was often referred to tutor students who were medically excused from school due to school based anxiety or other disability related needs. However, I also tutored students without disabilities who may have been unable to attend school; for example, I had the pleasure of tutoring many female students while they were out of school for the birth of their child.

have also provided test preparation tutoring in anticipation of the high school equivalency exams, MCAS, and private school placement. Younger children with attention and organization issues have also been recipients of my tutoring services. Whether the need is due to a disability or not, whether it is one subject/skill or many subjects/skills, or whether it is a short term need or a long term need, I have flexible availability to tutor!

I am a dual certified professional. I have a moderate special needs license, as well as an English certification for grades 5-12.

I have a lot of experience helping students with attention and executive functioning needs as well as core academics. I am eager to share my strategies 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.

ADD/ADHD

The majority of the students that I have serviced over the years have had ADD or ADHD as a disability. I have learned many strategies to support the challenges that students with ADD/ADHD are faced with in the classroom and at home when attempting to study or do homework.

Aspergers

As a special educator in a small classroom environment, I taught a large percentage of students who presented as either Aspergers or ASD. I underwent many trainings, and shared much of what I learned with other teachers and staff.

Dyslexia

As a language based learning disability instructor and as the administrator who oversaw a language based program, I have spent much time and effort understanding dyslexia and its' impact on students.

Special Needs

I have a Master's degree in Special Education, and have been in the field for over 16 years. I taught and tutored students with special needs for 14 of the 16 years, and was an administrator of special education for 2 years. I have extensive experience modifying curriculum for each student's specific needs in order to assist him/her to access the grade level content. I have taught in a self contained language based classroom, as well as part of a co-taught inclusion classroom.
As an educator, 100% of my students passed the MCAS requirement for high school graduation.
