About Michelle

I have a love for all things history and religion. Not only do I find them terribly interesting, I also find teaching them to be very fun. I'm very laid back and want to bolster your child's inherent love of history by taking the subject in a way few teachers will teach. Not only is history about statistics and dates, but also about the people who lived through these events. Giving a student context about the people being studied gives a backbone to caring about the event, not only for a test but to avoid just knowing the answers to a test. If we can't learn from history, what can we learn from?

I majored in Religion at Radford University. I did receive a liberal arts degree in the subject. By the time you're done tutoring with me, you'll be able to explain historical events with precision and as if you're telling a story you were present for. If you can tell the story like you were there or like the characters were your friends, then you'll never meet a test you won't slay. Let's have fun, learn and help your student have a firm grasp on historical context that will help them not only in the classroom, but in their outlook on life. Hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Oboe

I played oboe for 7 years. I am proficient in sight reading and won accolades at many Solo and Ensemble competitions. I was first chair throughout high school and eventually was able to learn English Horn as well.

Religion

I majored in Religion at Radford University. I did receive a liberal arts degree in the subject so I am well versed in the fundamentals of each religion, why religions exist, the need for group based religion, etc.
