About Michelle

I have been teaching adult students one-on-one for decades. It is a joy and a delight to me when the student understands the concept. I see teaching as a cooperative relationship. The student's job is to tell me if they don't understand something. My job is to present it in a way that they will understand it. I love the connections that are made between any given topic and the student's cognitive map and life experience.

I am a writer, proofreader, and copy-editor. I play doumbek (a Middle Eastern drum), flute, autoharp, and sing alto. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals.

I have my BA in English Literature from George Washington University. I am a writer, proofreader, copy-editor, drum circle leader, and speaker. I currently have a weekly blog, and have been a guest blogger for several online writing communities on LiveJournal (2009 - 2015). I have participated in the National Novel Writing Month challenge for five years. I also mentor other writers.

I want to help you reach your academic goals. Contact me to explain exactly what you want to accomplish and we will figure out a way to make that happen.
