About Michelle

Hello! I am currently teaching fourth grade and have previously taught second and third grade in the Philadelphia area. I am qualified to teach and have actual classroom experience. Although I teach elementary children, I also love teaching and tutoring middle school and high school level math. I have taken Advanced Placement Calculus in High School and took another calculus class in college simply because I enjoyed it so much.

While in college I enjoyed tutoring elementary children in reading and math in addition to my peers in calculus and education courses. It is my experience that many students who want tutored simply do not have the confidence they need to succeed. Often times, students know their facts and simply need some reassuring that they know what they are doing. Other times students just need concepts explained a different way before they understand or just need a little extra practice than there is time for in a school day. It is my goal to individualize my teaching to the needs of the student. I will adjust my teaching style to the needs of the student and will do my absolute best to provide them with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to succeed.
