About Michele M

I have been a teacher of English to speakers of other languages for almost 40 years. My work has taken me across the south of the USA and also to more far flung locations including Honduras, Peru, and Brazil. I spent six of the last ten years in South America working with English teachers. I myself have learned two languages in addition to my native language-English.

I speak both Spanish and Portuguese. Learning new languages opens up all kinds of fresh perspectives on the world. My life has been enriched by what I have learned. I have worked with students from kindergarten to adult in both private and public institutions. I have taught all levels of language in both small groups and large classes.

I love to help people learn and develop confidence in themselves. Learning is a lifelong journey and should be a joyful one. I welcome all to take the journey with me. I have learned so much from my journeys through this planet we all call home. Come along with me and enjoy the trip. I think that the key to learning is to find the joy that new knowledge can bring. My philosophy about teaching and learning is that we are all capable of learning whatever we decide is important to us on our journeys. With knowledge comes opportunities to gain new experiences. Experience is the key. Find the joy and keep learning.

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.

English

I have taught English for many years. I have a MATESOL-Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Spanish. I have experience teaching all skills at all levels.

ESL/ESOL

I hold a MATESOL (Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from The School for International Training in Brattleboro, VT. I have taught all ages and all levels of English to students from around the world. I have also lived and worked for U.S. Department of State Programs in Honduras, Peru, and Brazil where I learned to speak both Spanish and Portuguese.

Portuguese

I lived in Brazil for four years and I learned Portuguese on my own. I lived in Sao Paulo, Campinas, and Palmas, Tocantins but I also traveled and worked in many other parts of the country during my tenure there. I love teaching and learning languages.

SAT Writing

I have experience teaching both high school and college level English Composition Classes. I also have experience with administering the SAT Writing Test so I am familiar with the format.

Spanish

I majored in Spanish in undergrad but I was terrified to speak. I joined the Peace Corps and went to Honduras and then I had to learn to communicate to survive. That was many years ago and Spanish has opened many doors for me.
