About Michele

I am a certified teacher in all elementary subjects from PreK-6th grade and I also hold certification in Childhood Literacy from Birth-6th grade. I have over 6 years experience working with students from kindergarten through 6th grade, though my concentration has been with 3rd-5th graders for the past 3 years.

Currently I work in an elementary school tutoring students who struggle in reading. We focus on comprehension skills and strategies, vocabulary development, spelling, decoding, and fluency.

I am also extremely comfortable with elementary math and can help your child understand computation as well as math concepts.

Most importantly, I enjoy working with children and seeing them succeed. As a mother, I understand wanting the best for your child; as a teacher, I have the tools to help them do their very best.

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.
