I am a mother of three. Two of my children have learning disabilities. My oldest was born in 1988 and my youngest in 2000. I have real life experience teaching children with learning deficits. I also am an educational advocate and advocate for children throughout the United States. Many children with learning deficits are not receiving an appropriate education in school. Understanding how the child learns is critical in knowing how to educate a child. I have been successful in teaching my children in the areas where they had deficits. I also have taught others how to teach their children as well. As an educational advocate I am familiar with reading and analyzing comprehensive psychological evaluations done by the school and private psychologists. I help write and develop goals in IEP's meetings as well.

I have 15 year of experience in tutoring children in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. My oldest and youngest children both had reading deficits. They both have overcome these deficits. My oldest is now working in law enforcement. He earned a degree in Criminal Justice. My youngest child is now an avid reader. She wants to become a writer when she grows up. She is planning on majoring in journalism in college.

I have over 17 years of experience teaching children, and adults reading. My experience ranges from teaching basic reading skills using phonics to be able to make inferences and predictions in text. Reading affects all subjects so reading comprehension is critical in order to be successful in school. I am an educational advocate for children with IEP's in the public school system. My business was officially started in 2013. However, I have been advocating prior to starting my business. Nearly all of my existing clients have some sort of reading deficit. Thereby, affecting them in multiple academic areas. Although, they still have a reading deficit. They have progressed significantly from where they started from. For example, I had a client who was in the 5 grade and was reading on a 1st grade level for reading comprehension. After working with this student their reading level increased by 4 grade levels. This particular student had multiple deficits in reading. Their additional reading deficits were also in rate and fluency. I enjoy teaching students to read. Once they are taught the skill to read and they can understand what they are reading their self-esteem and confidence raises tremendously.

Great tutor for my daughter!

Michelle is great with my daughter. She prepares for the lessons and goes the extra mile to make sure she explains the material thoroughly. She responds back to me with the tools necessary for my child to be successful on quizzes, tests and portfolios. She is a wealth of knowledge about special education. Thank you Michelle!

Kema, 9 lessons with Michelle

Extremely patient and thorough

Michelle has gone out of her way to ensure my son has the tools he needs to study for the tests. She has done a good job simplifying the information he needs to master. Additionally, she's addressed other issues that may be hindering his performance. Her reinforcement of positive principals he's learned in the past has been quite helpful.
