About Michele

I have a B.A. in Elementary Education, and am Adult Education certified. I have tutored in the Migrant Program in Orange County, and privately. Presently, I am an Adult Basic Education teacher for a mentally retarded and developmentally disabled population. Also,
I am teaching adults in an English as a Second Language class. In addition, I have subbed numerous times through all the years of my teaching.

I have varied experience in tutoring students in their school subjects from elementary grades through high school. I gear the tutoring to the individual student and his or her particular needs. I like to stress the positive, and build on strengths. Each student has positive traits, and varied strengths. Each student has potential. I find this in my caring, patient approach to teaching students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor in this subject area due to my degree and training in Elementary Grades K-8. I also had personal experience in tutoring a 2nd grader in reading. Additionally, I tutored a 9 year-old while he worked on his homework.

English

I have a good deal of experience in teaching English to non-native speakers, as well as to elementary grade students.

Phonics

I feel qualified to tutor in phonics due to my training as an elementary school teacher. I also student taught in grades K-1. My substitute teaching involved students in grades K-4, which gave me additional experience. My work as an elementary school tutor was also good experience.

Study Skills

I have a good amount of experience tutoring students while they were doing their homework. I also emphasize study skills when teaching students now, and in the past. I often comment to students how to better do their work, and how to improve what they are doing.
