About Michelle


Bio

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 over a thousand students through college-level general chemistry. I've taught students with...

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 over a thousand students 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!

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.

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.

*** Michelle is great ****

Michelle was able to simplify a subject that my daughter was having challenges for a few weeks now, and she was having a test today. After the class my daughter very confident about the test.

Mohamed, 1 lesson with Michelle

Extremely helpful

I have had about 6 or so lessons with Michelle for my graduate chemistry class this semester. My chem class has been extremely challenging for me since we are covering a plethora of topics in a short amount of time and Michelle has been beyond helpful in pretty much teaching me everything I have learned this semester. She is patient and has been prepared for every lesson I've taken with her. I can not thank her enough for how helpful she has been!
