About Michelle

It's easy to get lost in what is being taught during class time. Sometimes people need individual attention to fully understand concepts, especially when it comes to math and science. I have extensive experience tutoring in one-on-one and group settings. Education is one of my greatest passions and I believe anyone and everyone can succeed and achieve great things with the right motivation and study skills, which often have to be learned and take time to develop. I believe I can help students develop these skills, understand difficult math and science concepts, and encourage enthusiasm in these subjects.

I am a recent graduate of the University of Utah where I earned a Master's degree in Bioengineering. I received my undergraduate degree in Physics with a minor in Mathematics. I spent 7 years learning extensive mathematics and physics concepts, with 3 of those years also studying biological and biophysical concepts. I earned a national merit scholarship due to outstanding PSAT scores and can help with ACT, SAT, and PSAT test preparation. I have worked with students of all ages, from children in elementary school to senior undergraduate engineering students. Additionally, I spent a semester as a teaching assistant in an upper level undergraduate bioengineering course, which helped me further develop teaching strategies to best assist students.
