About Michelle

I have been working at several local high schools as an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) tutor for the past 7 years. I help students reach their full potential by facilitating tutorial groups. I was trained to tutor all subjects, but I mainly lead chemistry and math groups. I use Socratic questioning to help students find the answers to their questions. This helps the students remember the information that they learn for a longer period of time, rather than just learning the information for a specific test. I also help students with organization skills and other strategies that will help them succeed in college.

Prior to becoming an AVID tutor I worked as a chemical engineer in the semiconductor industry for 10 years. I am a very positive person and thoroughly enjoy helping students reach their full potential!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a substitute teacher for Leander Independent School District. I completed all the duties of a regular teacher in the teacher’s absence. I subbed only at the elementary level. I am a very positive and encouraging person. I have two children that have just completed elementary school, and I was able to help them with every problem that they brought home.

Study Skills

I have been working as an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) tutor in Leander ISD for the past four years. AVID involves not only tutoring, but teaching students organization and study skills that will help them succeed in college. I have helped countless high school students to get organized! I have also taught them how to take Cornell Notes to increase their retention of information that they learn.

Very knowledgeable and dedicated tutor

Michelle has very good organizational skills and she is successful in knowing how to conduct the learning process. My son had a very good experience working with her as he was able to quickly understand concepts that he was struggling with. He is looking forward to work with Michelle on a regular basis.
