About Michelann

I am an experienced teacher, working especially with adult college learners at diverse levels of writing ability. I have five years of college teaching experience. I hold Master's degrees from San Francisco Conservatory of Music in Music, St. Edward's University in Organizational Leadership and Ethics, and Fielding Graduate University in Human Development. I am an ABD PhD student expecting to finish my degree in August of 2016.

My teaching and tutoring process involves intensive editing, discussion, and goal-setting. I have worked with college students in multiple disciplines and am especially good at helping them strip out jargon, idiom, unnecessary verbiage, and isolate and fix grammatical and style issues. My philosophy is that good writing is clear writing, regardless of audience. I can also help with presentations and public speaking preparation as I have extensive experience on stage, in the classroom, and in public speaking forums. I will work with students on existing homework, essays, and assignments, and also assign reading and exercises when applicable. I can also help connect students to supplemental resources and support in their areas. I am available to meet in person in the Greater Austin Area, and I also work well online in both face to face and asynchronous platforms such as Skype, Zoom, and Google Drive. My meeting times are flexible; my best hours are 9-5 Monday through Friday.

I am published in academic journals, industry publications, and online platforms. I understand the importance of clear, grammatically correct writing, but also the need to adapt one's style based on the audience. I provide detailed editorial feedback to all students along with verbal or written explanations of editorial suggestions.

Unclear on feedback from your teachers? Need more detailed explanation and suggestions? Contact me and see how I can help you improve your writing and your grades.

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.

Public Speaking

I teach public speaking workshops and require presentations in my college courses. I have experience as a public speaker, teacher, and stage performer. I have written articles and presented on the topic of public speaking, and I have also consulted as a public speaking coach. I emphasize the importance of clarity, organization, and rehearsal for public speaking and presentations, as I have an in depth understanding of the psychological and physiological effects of performance anxiety/stage fright.

Sociology

I have a Master's degree in Human Development from the department of Human and Organizational Development at Fielding Graduate University, which is a sociology department. I have graduate credits in Systems Theory, Social Justice, Feminist Theory, Epistemology, Phenomenology, Personality Theory, Human Development, Research Methods, and Organizational Theory. I was a teaching fellow for two semesters in Epistemology. I am ABD with expected completion in August.
