About Michelle

The bulk of my teaching experience has been in the classroom instructing adult ESL students. Most recently, I've been teaching intermediate through advanced level ESL to students ages 19-70. I've held this position for 5 years. I taught ESL in South Korea for 6 months to elementary and middle school students. While living in South Korea, I tutored a middle school-aged boy and girl weekly in ESL. Prior to my current position, I was a Social Studies teacher for an online high school and taught criminal justice. For my student teaching assignments, I taught Minnesota history at the middle school level and high school geography.

My love for teaching comes from making a connection with students and helping them achieve their goals, whether they be passing a test, improving a grade, or grasping a concept. My ultimate joy in teaching comes in that moment when the light bulb goes off and students finally understand what they once struggled with.

I have my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction and my teaching license in 5th-12th grade Social Studies. As most of my experience has been teaching ESL students, I specialize in teaching reading (fluency, comprehension, vocabulary), writing, and grammar. I am also qualified and experienced in teaching social studies and the basic math operations.

I am generally available to tutor on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 3pm and 8pm. I'm available most weekends and my hours are flexible.

Please feel free to contact me about any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your academic 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.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching ESL for 5 years and have experience teaching a wide range of abilities from high beginning to advanced ESL students.

Reading

I've completed STAR training (Student Achievement in Reading), which focuses on effective, evidence-based practices in the four major components of adult reading instruction: alphabetics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
