About Michaela

I recently moved to Durham from Boston, where I earned my MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. I have taught experience teaching in high school classrooms, but have also taught adult ed classes, summer school programs, and camps. I really love teaching and am looking for an opportunity that will put me in a place again where I can help kids learn!

I have taught HS English classes as well as Spanish classes and think I have a knack for teaching languages. As terrifyingly corny as it sounds, I love words and have a history of connecting with students to make learning fun. Few things are more difficult than getting high school students excited for a required Spanish class or summer school English, but through creative lessons, good rapport, and engaging with material I feel my students really learn!

I am confident that I can help you become more confident and skilled in Language Arts. Feel free to contact me to have a discussion about what you need as a learner and we can discuss how I can help as an educator. I look forward to it!

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.

Spanish

I have taught this subject in a variety of settings (high school, summer school, educational summer camps, tutoring, adult education courses) to a wide-range of students (preteens to senior citizens). I am able to help YOU feel confident and competent!
