About Michele

I am an experienced tutor with over a decade of teaching, training and tutoring. I tutor students in English as a Second Language, including writing, listening comprehension, speaking skills, and grammar, as well as other subjects. With lessons from me, you will improve your communication skills, depth and breadth of English language, and gain confidence in using the English language. During the lessons, I provide information about American culture and lifestyle to assist with acculturation for new immigrants.

I have taught students from elementary school to adults, privately as well as in schools, colleges and adult education centers. I am currently faculty at a local community college and would like to expand my teaching to include more private students in a one-on-one setting. I have a Masters Degree in International Education from Harvard University, with a focus on educational systems in other countries. I have lived, taught and worked in over 30 countries, speak 5 languages, and have strong cross-cultural skills that help make me a strong tutor for people from around the world.

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.
