My daughter is taking English literature AP class and Michelle has been very helpful. She is very patient and easy to reach. Every time when we text or call her, she responds immediately. My daughter's writing skill improves a lot, so I am asking her to help my son too.

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.

I work with elementary students to improve their phonics/sound decoding, increase sight word recognition, and improve comprehension. In most cases, I will also incorporate writing into the lessons to reinforce the skills needed for reading. For older students, the focus is on developing critical reading skills such as summarizing texts, analyzing structure, identifying important details, and understanding literary devices.
I worked in the developmental disabilities field for over 17 years. During much of that time I worked one-on-one with people who had many different kinds of learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities and other developmental disabilities. I also received training in how to work with individuals with disabilities throughout my career.
For elementary and middle school students, I use vocabulary lists developed by reading professionals.

For high school students, the focus is more on understanding root words, prefixes and suffixes, and/or advanced vocabulary they encounter in their reading and test preparation.
