About Michelle

I've been teaching CH101 and CH102 (the first and second levels of General Chemistry for science majors) as an adjunct professor at Frederick Community College for 5 years. The content covered in these courses is very similar to what would be offered in a high level AP Chemistry course in high school. I've gained valuable instructional experience during my years at FCC, having the opportunity to lead hundreds of students (approaching one thousand) through college-level general chemistry. 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. I have had excellent student evaluations. I offer a very thorough, logical, but friendly approach to teaching.

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!

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.

Chemistry

Beyond my education, which includes both a BS and a PhD in Biochemistry and Immunology, 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. Most importantly, I've been teaching college level General Chemistry for 5 years at a local community college, where I've had the opportunity to lead hundreds of students, with a whole range of abilities, through chemistry. My college students have given me consistently positive student evaluations. 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. These skills well qualify me to do private tutoring on the high school and college level.

Excellent! — Michelle taught me SO much in just two hours! Michelle is very kind, thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Michelle really helped me prepare for my first chemistry exam that I have coming up. We got so much accomplished in such a short amount of time because she's an outstanding tutor, and really knows what she's talking about and how to interpret the material so it's easy to understand. I will de ...
