About Michelle


Bio

"It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts... it is to teach them to think." Robert M. Hutchins

This quote is what has inspired me to 'teach students to think' for over the last 13 years. I am an educator in an Elizabeth, NJ, public school, and love all the aspects of my job. Mostly though, I love when a person finally makes that connection and gets it. When I went to school, I remember countless hours of memorization and homework...

"It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts... it is to teach them to think." Robert M. Hutchins

This quote is what has inspired me to 'teach students to think' for over the last 13 years. I am an educator in an Elizabeth, NJ, public school, and love all the aspects of my job. Mostly though, I love when a person finally makes that connection and gets it. When I went to school, I remember countless hours of memorization and homework that was only a tool in helping the facts be memorized. Now as a teacher, I see how it is vital for students to not memorize facts but to learn to think in order to investigate and recall facts on their own. I am a tool that guides them in their investigations, not someone who lectures for hours on mindless information.

I have tutored various people in the last few years and these students have been between 5 and 30. I enjoy helping people learn and am willing to dedicate the time necessary to assure this process happen. I also possess an incredible amount of patience which is also important for the process. Any other questions I can answer once we begin our lessons. I look forward to working with you!
