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 over 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.

“A real teacher “ my 15 year old said!

Chemistry- advanced specialized nyc public school. Electrochemistry! And we look forward to her next session! Thank you Wyzant and Michelle! Incredible solution you have created!

Gen Chem 2

Michelle has been incredibly helpful this semester. She's helped me in the past as well, and both times totally changed my understanding of the material. Michelle always knows when to slow down and help you if you are having more trouble with a topic, and she's great at explaining things in a way that works for the student. Though I started the semester very stressed, I ended not terribly worried at all and even liking chemistry. Michelle is very easy to work with and is well worth the investment.

Experienced chemistry tutor

Michelle has been tutoring my daughter in general chemistry. My daughter was struggling and considering dropping chemistry but after the first couple of sessions with Michelle she is much more confident. Michelle is an excellent tutor and explains the material very clearly. She is also great to communicate with. We hope to work with her throughout the academic year.

The best tutor!!

She is my daughter's first chemistry tutor. She is the best tutor among many of my daughter's tutors. I will not try to fine any other tutor for her chem tutoring as long as I found Ms.Michelle.

Excellent chem tutor

Michelle has a tremendous amount of patience for chem newbies and she has a beautiful way of breaking down extremely complicated material and building on it so that a beginner understands chemistry and builds on that. She's worth every penny and I wish she was my professor. Teaching is a gift and she has the knowledge combined with the skill of teaching complex material.

AMAZING teacher!!!!! I don’t know what I would do without her!

Michelle S. has helped me immensely in my IB Chemistry class. She is extremely patient and every single thing she explains is instantly very clear to me. I say this in all seriousness. She knows exactly how to teach every topic I’ve asked her to help me with in a very organized and clear manner. She is the reason I have a 7 (the highest grade in the IB) in my class. I wish every teacher were like her!

Great Lesson

Michelle was very helpful and knowledgeable with all the chemistry questions that I had for her. She made learning the concepts easier to understand.

Amazing

Always amazing!! We always make sure to come back for a lesson if help is needed. She always takes the time to review and start from the top to make sure all is understood.

Knowledgeable, patient, great teaching skills

Michelle has been tutoring my daughter, who is a freshman in college, in Chemistry. My daughter has enjoyed each of her sessions. She likes the way Michelle teaches the concepts and makes it easy to understand. Michelle is also very patient and accommodating. My daughter looks forward to her sessions each week. I would definitely recommend Michelle as a tutor. Thank you Michelle.
