About Michelle

Looking for an English and/or Reading teacher for your child? You have come to the right page!

Hello! My name is Michelle Newton and I am an English and reading expert. I am in my 7th year of teaching in Montgomery County. I have years of experience in education, especially teaching Reading and English. I have experience teaching in all levels. Specially, I am VERY familiar with Middle and High School. I certified in the state of Maryland -- English 7-12 and as a Reading Specialist K-12.

My zeal for teaching comes from my love for working with the youth and helping struggling and reluctant learners achieve success! I differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all types of students.

My area of expertise includes Reading and English. In terms of Reading, I work with students to improve their Reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary. In terms of English, I am very skilled in writing, and grammar.

I am available to tutor immediately... primarily after-school. I am available to tutor in the summer, starting June 22, Tuesday and Thursday 8am - 7pm, as well as Monday and Wednesday 2pm - 5pm. I provide great instruction and assessments that will determine your child's progress!
