About Michele

I enjoy working with young elementary children who need extra support learning the basic skills of reading, writing, math and science. I believe that learning should be an enjoyable experience that inspires children to become lifelong learners. To increase a child’s desire to learn, I provide fun activities that relate to the child's interest or daily life that supports academic development. All children learn differently and at different rates. To meet individual learning styles I provide assorted activities that include games, worksheets and hands-on experiences. My lessons are designed to meet and exceed Common Core State Standards.
 
ESL For Young Children and Families:
My training and experiences include developmentally appropriate practices for working with children and families where English is a second language. There are many challenges that new English speakers face in their everyday lives. I provide fun and helpful lessons that will increase correct pronunciation of words, increase vocabulary, and provide helpful tips for improving everyday conversational skills.
 
Self esteem and emotional development are very important in a child's ability to achieve academic success. To support this, I give each child my fullest attention and provide positive feed back during each session.
 
I have over twenty years of experience working with children in educational environments. This includes providing presentations to early childhood educators, working with CCP students and serving as a committee member of the WCC Early Childhood Professional Advisory Board. 
 
Additional Tutoring Services - Professional Development:
Early Childhood CDA Test Prep and CDA Portfolio Development.
Preschool Enrichment Training For ECE Students and Preschool Teachers: Introducing Common Core Standards to children without worksheets and without stress. How to prepare preschool children and kindergarten students for Common Core State Standards while upholding age appropriate development standards for NAEYC.

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 have a degree in Early Childhood Education (Childcare Professional) in which the courses and training include developmentally age appropriate practices for teaching reading, writing, math, science and social skills for children birth - 3rd grade. In addition to my CCP degree I also have a degree as Medical Office Assistant - Pediatrics. Various and ongoing trainings include Phonics, ESL, Development Assessment, Social Emotional Development, Language Development, Learning Disabilities and Cultural Diversity.

I have over ten years of experience working with children in a variety of educational environments. I have also received a recognition award from the Michigan State Senate for my work with children and families.

In addition to working with children and families, I am a Early Childhood / Education Presenter. My experiences include presenting at Early Childhood / Education Conferences on topics that support and promote learning in all academic areas while supporting social development of young children.

ESL/ESOL

My education in Early Childhood Education includes specific training in working with children who are ESL (English Second Language Learners). This is includes using developmentally appropriate practices and standards established by NAEYC. My work and tutoring experience includes working with ESL children to develop important skills such as; phonics, reading, writing, conversational language and social skills.

Phonics

My degree courses and training included using age-appropriate practices recognized by NAEYC to teach early childhood students phonics (literacy). My previous employment and experiences include working with ESL children and promoting literacy. I have been a guest speaker and presenter at Early Childhood/Education Conferences and for the Early Childhood Degree Program at Washtenaw Community College located in Ann Arbor, MI. My presentations include increasing phonics - literacy through dramatic play. The presentations I prepared and hosted are for early childhood students, parents and caregivers working in a variety of educational and childcare environments.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary building is necessary for all children to achieve academic success. I have over 10 years experience in helping children strengthen their vocabulary, spelling and reading skills. I provide fun, thoughtful activities that promote and increase vocabulary skills.
