I have been teaching for 46 years. I tutor in Spanish and French. I am passionate about my profession and continue to inspire students of all ages and acumen. I am a consultant for the College Board and have been reading Advanced Placement exams for 31 years. I have taught at Swarthmore College, the University of Pennsylvania, Haverford College, Arcadia University, and the George Washington University. I have taught in the Wallingford Swarthmore School District for 30 years and have chaired the Foreign Language Department for 13 years.
I enjoy teaching language, culture and literature. I love to excite my students with the importance of the significance of learning a language and about other cultures. The study of literature makes the people of the respective culture come alive, and creates a timeless bridge to the present. I have been teaching for 46 years. I tutor in Spanish and French.

She was an amazing tutor! She helped me and is a great and caring person! Would highly recommend. She is flexible and reliable, as well as punctual. She is also very intelligent!
Michele was my son's Spanish tutor this Fall. He is currently in Spanish 2 as a high school freshman. Michele was courteous and respectful of my son who struggles with organizational issues. She focused on school topics and assignments but supplemented with exercises in problem areas when assignment work was completed. She clearly is very comfortable adapting lessons to meet an individual child's needs in the context of where they go to school. I suspect this fluidity comes from her many years of experience teaching in the classroom. Her demeanor was pleasant and friendly; she really seemed to "click" with my otherwise quiet son. She had great ideas as to where to meet for tutoring sessions (my son prefers to be tutored outside the home) and she was flexible and prompt with scheduled dates and times. Would highly recommend to any one in the area seeking a Spanish tutor!
We have been working with Michelle C. for almost two years now. We are very pleased with her professionalism and thoughtfulness in giving our daughters the tools they need to be successful. Michelle has been flexible in working around our busy schedules. She is always on time and easy to reach. Most importantly to me, my daughters love to work with her.
I was refereed to WyzAnt by a friend when I was looking for a Spanish tutor for my 10th grader. Michele was one of the first to respond - very prompt and courteous. We spoke live I appreciated her flexibility to find a time that worked for my daughter and was able to meet us half way in distance at a public library. She and my daughter had their session in a room and I worked on my laptop outside. My daughter loved Michelle's teaching style, found her to be very knowledgeable and helped her with what she needed. We look forward to consistent lessons!
Dr. Michele helped my son to prepare for AP Spanish exam. She has valuable experience and knowledge in the AP Spanish teaching area. I am glad to see the improvement.
I was looking for a tutor to help my daughter to get ready for her AP Spanish exam. Michele was the second tutor we tried. From the first lesson it was apparent that I did not need to look any further. Michele is a great teacher who goes above and beyond for her students. The quality of her lessons are superb. My daughter loves her and both of us are sure that she will get an A on her upcoming exam. I would highly recommend Michele to everyone.
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.
