About Michelle

I would love to help with your tutoring needs!

I specialize in working with elementary and middle school students in all subjects and high school students needing help in Algebra I, Geometry, writing, and basic study skills. I received my Bachelor's degree from Rutgers University in 2005 and began tutoring in 2012. In 2014, I began teaching with Prince William County as a middle school math teacher. I am currently teaching 6th grade math at a local middle school. I love working with students and have thoroughly enjoyed witnessing them become more confident and successful in school!

My primary tutoring strategy is to focus on building confidence. A confident student is better prepared to learn and is more tolerant of making mistakes and going through the learning process.

Confidence comes from feedback and practice. The more feedback a student receives and the more practice they execute, the more their confidence in their abilities will grow. In addition to providing that important feedback to the student, I also assist parents with learning how to give constructive feedback to the student when they are engaged in homework help. Having the proper communication skills can greatly transform the interaction between parent and student when challenges arise!

Please note - I tutor out of my home in Montclair, VA. Parents are welcome to attend lessons or to drop off/pick up their student. Also, I have pets so please be sure to take that into consideration as well.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little more about me and I look forward to helping you with your tutoring needs!

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.

Resourceful and creative! — Thanks for the resourcefulness Michelle! Given my son's high functioning autism, it is at times difficult to redirect him from his routines. This often causes him to miss bringing home his Social Studies binder despite several reminders. I truly appreciate your patience and creativity to ensure he is on par with his lessons. ...
