About Michelle


Bio

I've been teaching CHEM101 and CHEM102 (the first and second levels of General Chemistry for science majors) as an adjunct professor at Frederick Community College for 8 years. The content covered in these courses is the same content encountered in the AP Chemistry course in high school. I've had the opportunity to teach over a thousand students.

I've been teaching CHEM101 and CHEM102 (the first and second levels of General Chemistry for science majors) as an adjunct professor at Frederick Community College for 8 years. The content covered in these courses is the same content encountered in the AP Chemistry course in high school. I've had the opportunity to teach over a thousand students. I've taught students with a wide range of abilities, which really helps you learn to explain the material in lots of different ways and to ask the right questions to "get inside the mind" of the student so you can lead them to success.

For the past 4 years, I've also been working part-time as a private Chemistry tutor through Wyzant. I've had the opportunity to tutor about 100 students from all over the country one-on-one through their Chemistry courses, which range from high school level Chemistry to AP Chem to first year college Chem all the way to graduate programs. Most of my students meet with me using the online platform that Wyzant offers, which is really convenient, easy to use, and after about 5 minutes, feels like we are sitting in the same room. At this point in my career, I've seen almost every type of question students have, and have well-thought-out ways of helping students comprehend the problem-solving techniques and concepts required to master the material. I have the people skills to adjust to a student's own personality, learning style, and ability and have had lots of experience helping students succeed in their courses.

I have a B.S. in Biochemistry from Messiah College and a Ph.D. in Immunology from Tufts University. At Tufts, I was awarded the Norman Krinsky Excellence in Teaching award for my work leading the supplemental Biochemistry instruction for medical students.

Please contact me if you are interested in my tutoring services. Looking forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!

Chemistry

Beyond my education, which includes both a BS and a PhD in Biochemistry (Messiah College) and Immunology (Tufts University), respectively, I have been tutoring and/or teaching Chemistry for years. I was awarded the Norman Krinsky "Excellence in Teaching" award at Tufts University for my work doing supplemental instruction in Biochemistry for the Medical School and the Graduate Nutrition Program. I've also been teaching college General Chemistry for 8 years, where I've had the opportunity to lead over a thousand students, with a whole range of abilities, through chemistry. Through experience, I've learned the pitfalls, the common areas of confusion, and I've also learned how to best explain chemistry, making it understandable and enjoyable. I exclusively tutor Chemistry because that is the field that I'm expert in, and I want to make sure my clients get the best tutoring experience possible.

Thank you Michelle!

Chemistry virtually during Covid... insane. Michelle as your tutor.... a miracle. Michelle, put my daughter and I at ease in the first 30 seconds. She anticipated problems with a new platform for my daughter and solves them efficiently. Michelle has a fabulous personality and keeps her student engaged and thinking. I feel so much better knowing she is in our corner!

Excellent Tutor

Michelle provides a no-nonsense approach to her tutoring. She explains things in terms that anyone can understand. She truly has a gift and is well worth the cost.

Great tutor

Michelle is helping me with AP Chemistry and has been invaluable at breaking down the concepts so that I can understand them better. I was so impressed that I will use her on an ongoing basis.

Jack, 10 lessons with Michelle

Great

Michelle has worked with my daughter with chemistry and my daughter has indicated she has been a huge help and has really helped her make sense of all the word problems.

Great Chemistry tutor

Michelle has been an awesome tutor and truly care about the student. Although we have only communicated via email and online tutoring, it feels like my daughter has known her for years.

She was great. Just what my daughter needed

Honors High School Chemistry. I'd recommend her to anyone. She explains it way better than my daughter's High School Teacher.

Sophia, 4 lessons with Michelle

Excellent teacher!!!!!

Michelle is a great teacher. I wish my professor was 1/10th the teacher she is in terms of explaining and illustrating a concept through examples along with listening to what I have to say and confirming we are on the same page. You will definitely get your money’s worth with Michelle.

SIMPLY the best!

I've only had two lessons with Michelle, and yet she has helped me so much! My boarding school science program is very rigorous, but Michelle explains concepts so clearly. In addition, she creates a very welcoming and open learning environment that is very conducive to growth as a student!

Stephanie, 8 lessons with Michelle

Knowledgeable tutor!

my daughter who's a freshman doing AP chemistry, after having first lesson with Michelle, said to me, it's not difficult at all. The way Michelle teaches she makes it very easy to understand,is very punctual, always well prepared and checks with my daughter before moving forward if she is comfortable or wants more help with any particular topic. Overall Michelle is a very sweet and patient teacher, I would highly recommend her.
