About MICHELLE

There is much to benefit from one-on-one tutoring. When we are sitting together, I am able to focus on your child's individual struggles, and your child is forced to focus on his or her work. Your child can feel comfortable asking questions and expressing themselves without worrying about their peers. We can work together on the specific areas that are needed. This type of scaffolding can give your child the knowledge and confidence to move forward in class.

I hold a NYS Professional Teaching Certificate. I have my Master's in Elementary Education. I have been a 5th grade teacher for six years, and a 4th grade teacher for two years, in the NYC school system. I am very familiar with these specific grades and subject areas. However, I have also successfully tutored students in grades 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6. In various subject areas. I believe in teaching the student in the best way that he or she can understand. I look forward to working together to bring out the best in your child.

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.
