About Michelle

I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was very young. I used to line up my stuffed animals and teach them anything I learned in school, I gave them report cards and had parent meetings! To this day I still teach the same way. I think the best way for students to learn is to be in close contact with their parents, focus on what the students are interested in and keep things interesting. I like to use hands on lessons, technology and manipulatives to help students learn. I have been a teacher since February of 2002 and have taught 3rd grade, 5th grade gifted and talented students and technology to students from grades K-5.

I am never satisfied unless a student is making progress and although sometimes that takes time and patience. I spend a lot of time working so that each student is receiving what they need to be successful. I use my training as a yoga teacher to help students who get stressed easily to help them calm down, I use my enthusiasm to help inspire students who are feeling a little defeated.

Right now I have quite a bit of flexibility in my availability and therefore only need 4 hours notice for cancellation.

I am happy to work with students online or in person. If you choose to work with me in person, I prefer the first few meetings to be in a place like a library, diner or coffee shop.

Math has been my strength from a young age. In college my major was Elementary Education with a concentration in Math. As a teacher my students math scores were high and most students were able to show me numerous ways to solve a problem. I believe in a hands on approach and use of manipulative to solve problems.

I have taught students at a variety of reading levels. I like to use technology, interactive lessons and the interests of the students to help them advance their reading skills. The students in my classroom generally improved anywhere between 3-6 levels during the year I worked with them.

Science is fun! I like to create a hands on lesson or use technology to help students understand the concepts and not just ask them to read, memorize and answer questions, kids develop a love for the subject.

I am a Yoga Alliance 200 hour certified teacher. I teach a variety of yoga classes including mommy and me, preschool, kids, athletes and adults. I love to work with beginners and focus on alignment but also enjoy challenging a student with more experience!

If you are interested in creating an exciting learning experience for your child, more than reading, memorizing and spitting information back, I am the person to help you! I look forward to hearing from you and working with your child's interests and needs to create fun, effective lessons for them.
