About Michelle


Bio

I tutored elementary aged students aged 5-11 for 3 years as a private service and through Catholic Community Services Youth Tutoring Program. The subjects I tutored were math, reading, writing and language arts. I worked at two different after-school tutoring centers. One as a volunteer tutor and the other as a paid Assistant Teacher where tutored and coached volunteer tutors. In the private sector I tutored two students aged 8-11.

I tutored elementary aged students aged 5-11 for 3 years as a private service and through Catholic Community Services Youth Tutoring Program. The subjects I tutored were math, reading, writing and language arts. I worked at two different after-school tutoring centers. One as a volunteer tutor and the other as a paid Assistant Teacher where tutored and coached volunteer tutors. In the private sector I tutored two students aged 8-11.

I received hands-on training to tutor students in grades K-8 in the subjects of math, reading, writing and language arts through the Catholic Community Services organization in Seattle, Washington. The training incorporated the expected curriculum that should be learned for a given grade, as well as, how to document and communicate students’ progress to the parent and/or guardian. The training also elaborated on acceptable ways to work with children, creative ways to teach students and the awareness and flexibility needed to adapt to the different learning styles of students.

I have the discipline and capability through training, experience and my educational background to be a future tutor for your children. I hold two degrees: a Bachelor's from the University of Washington majoring in Social and Environmental issues and a Master's from University of Maryland University College in Information Technology.

My approach to tutoring students is to encourage them to read the questions and talk to me with what seems challenging. Depending upon the subject I take different approaches to tutor the student. For all subjects I like to use worksheets to help build upon what the student knows while seeing how the student learns. There are additional approaches for tutoring that I take by subject and is described further.

For math, I help students achieve the strategy by using various examples and/or tools (e.g. unifix tools or number line). If story problems are a challenge then I use examples in the problem that the student may be able to better relate to. As an example for the latter, playing with cars may be a favorite of the student, so I would replace dogs with cars in a story problem so that the student could better relate to the numbers.

When tutoring with writing and spelling, I have the student trace over the letters after showing them how to write the letters. I observe to see if there is a pattern in how they write which could be modified with an adjustment. I like to incorporate writing and spelling together by having the student write the words in various writing utensils.

My approach for language arts overall is to break down the sentences to help the student learn sentence structure grammatically and with the correct punctuation. Additionally I have the student say the sentence without focusing on the words on paper to see if they articulate their words verbally the same way they write on paper and progress from there in the tutoring.

I enjoy tutoring students and watching students become successful in their education. I look forward to the potential opportunity to tutor your student and help them excel in a subject(s) that may be challenging. Thank you for considering me as your tutor.
