About Michel

I was a teacher assistant for Adult Ed for two years. I have been tutoring for 14 years. During the time I have been tutoring I have learned some important things. Every teacher cannot necessarily be a tutor. Tutoring is an art which requires very good communication skill, the patience of Job and an understanding and gentle personality. There is no room for harsh words, sarcasm or rudeness! With the right type of demeanor a student can soar to great heights and overcome his or her weak points in certain subjects.
I have an Associates in Arts and am now attending USC Sumter through the USC Upstate program. This program is top notch and we get to meet the superintendent along with other members of their staff. I am almost ready to take and pass my Praxis test. I have a passion for teaching children subjects they might be struggling with and once they see how much I care about them learning the subject their minds open up and they become receptive, this is when they get the ("Oh now I understand") moment! I can't wait to help your child achieve success and turn their weakness into their strength.

I have taken and passed Math 101, 102 and 110. I have taken and passed Bio 210 and 211. Reading is an acquired taste but once you start you cant stop which I will prove to my students

Some of the basic math rules can be confusing to some children. I will patiently help them through this with a kind an reassuring voice

My mother is a retired English teacher so I was groomed to teach phonics. I am ready to help any student who is having problems and during our breaks we can always discuss video games since I am a member of the video game club at USC Sumter. Lets start soon so you can overcome those problem classes so that you can still have some of the summer remaining to enjoy.
