About Michelle

Hi,
My love of teaching stems from my love of math. While in and out of the classroom, I have tutored many students and helped them realize math does not have to be a set of rules or a subject of frustration but a way to reach their potential and increase understanding along with their test scores.

I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Secondary Education (grades 6-12). I have tutored students in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I,II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus and Calculus I and II. I have 18 years teaching experience in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. I have taught everything from 6th grade math to AP Calculus. I ask students to bring homework questions and recent assessments to work through to each tutoring session to help determine areas of need and learning styles.

While using these techniques have proven to help students in their classes and achieve success, I have also helped students develop skills to overcome math anxiety or gaps in information. I believe math should be taught and related to each student as connected elements, thus making it relevant and easier to achieve success.

High standards are the expectation for myself and my instruction methods for students. Therefore, I often ask for feedback and I will not bill for a lesson if student and parent are not completely satisfied with my tutoring.

I try to be flexible with scheduling but do have a 12 hour cancellation policy but will reschedule lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed.

Thank you!
Michelle

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.
