About Michelle

I am a professional educator with over six years of teaching and tutoring experience at both the high school and college levels. I hold a B.A. and M.A. from the University of Virginia and George Washington University respectively, and I have completed five years of a Ph.D. program in Political Science at the University of Minnesota, one of the highest ranking programs in the U.S. I have tutored dozens of students in New York and throughout the United States and abroad (using an online platform), primarily for the SAT, GRE, and writing skills. As a graduate student, I have also worked individually with hundreds of undergraduates, focusing on writing, reading comprehension, and the social sciences.

I bring with me a passion for teaching and learning. I firmly believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to education, and my lesson plans are personally tailored to each student's individual needs and goals. In today’s results-oriented academic world, standardized and advanced placement tests can seem intimidating and even tedious. Yet education can and should be an exciting and rewarding experience. I strive to create an environment where students can achieve excellence while simultaneously developing a love of learning and knowledge that they will carry with them into other educational settings and beyond.

I achieved near-perfect and perfect scores on my own SAT and GRE Math sections. Unfortunately math is frequently taught in a manner that can make it seem simultaneously boring and confusing! But that doesn't need to be the case. In fact, math problems can be approached like fun puzzles to solve. I love helping students break math into its fundamental building blocks so they have the tools to conquer any problem that comes their way.

Reading and writing were my first loves. My writing has won and been nominated for awards from as early as elementary school to as late as professional Ph.D. conferences. I'm even in the process of writing a grammar textbook-- for fun! Few things are more rewarding for me than helping others to master the technicalities of the English language while at the same time discovering its beauty.

I would be honored to help you achieve your goals and exceed your expectations! Please contact me to learn more-- I look forward to meeting you!
