About Michelle

I have been teaching for more than eleven years. Currently, I am a 6th grade Reading teacher for KISD. My experience includes private tutoring and working for national tutoring companies. I specialize language arts, and math through Algebra I, working with children with dysgraphia, and ESL students. I also can help adults interested in taking the ASVAB with their math, word knowledge, and comprehension skills.

If your student is discouraged, I am passionate about each child reaching his or her potential. Each student will receive a personalized program designed according to their learning style. I provide one-on-one tutoring with students to help improve study and learning skills. My experience includes teaching/tutoring pre-school children through high school students.

I design personal study programs for students in math, phonics, and reading. I can provide supplementary aids and services to enable children to access general curriculum while working towards specified goals. I have taught students with disabilities and worked together with them to achieve milestones in their Individualized Education Program (IEP).

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been substitute teaching K-6th grade for six years, tutored K-12th grade for over four years, and I home schooled K-6 for three years. I have a bachelor's degree in Marketing from Northern Illinois University and an alternative teaching certificate from ITeach Texas. I am currently a full-time para professional at Dogwood Elementary School.

Elementary Science

I have taught science in K-6 grade for 10 years. I have worked at an elementary school in Texas and home schooled for three years. My college degree includes Geology and Geography coursework. I have also tutored in all subjects for four years.

Phonics

I have been teaching elementary students for nine years. I customize my phonics programs to the needs of my students. Rod and Staff has one of my favorite phonics programs. I spent two years tutoring phonics for Huntington Learning Center.

Reading

Currently, I am a 6th grade Reading teacher for KISD. I have taught and tutored at the elementary level, including reading, for ten years. I have also facilitated reading groups for accelerated readers in elementary school.

Study Skills

I have been working with students on how to improve their study skills for 11 years. I received training regarding study skills while attending the iTeachTexas Certification program and while working for Huntington Learning Center. Building strong reading skills is most important to good study skills. I help my students to become more precise in following directions. I show them several techniques to use in order to memorize information for tests.

She is very patient with him and takes the time to walk him through each problem. She is very good at explaining the process, and identifying the areas where he needs work.
