About Michelle

Hi! My name is Michelle G. I am a second year graduate student at the University of Arkansas, and I will be graduating with a master's degree in mathematics in May 2017. I am originally from Wisconsin, and received a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin - Platteville in May 2015. After graduating from the U of A, I hope to teach math at either a small university, community college, or technical school.

I began tutoring in January 2011 while I was attending community college, and have been tutoring ever since. I have tutored a variety of students in a variety of courses, including middle school algebra, high school geometry, college algebra, Calculus 1 through Differential Equations, and AP Calculus. I have also helped students prepare for their AP Calculus exams and the math portion of the ACT.

My favorite part about being a tutor is watching students grow more confident in their math skills. My approach is not to simply show students how to solve one kind of problem, but rather to help them understand the bigger picture and strengthen their math skills so that they can tackle problems on their own. I aim to provide a safe space for students to make mistakes, gain confidence, and reinforce the correct techniques they are learning.

I also try to focus on a student's learning style. This can make all the difference to a student, and sometimes requires a bit of creativity from me, but I don't believe that math can or should be taught in only one way.

I love to meet new people, and to see how different subjects are being taught. Tutoring is not only a chance for me to share my knowledge, but it's also a chance for me to learn from my students.

I can't wait to start working with you! Please contact me if you think we'd be a good fit for each other!

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.

Algebra 1

I have been helping students with Algebra 1 for 2 years.

Algebra 2

I have been helping students with Algebra 2 for 2 years.

Calculus

At the University of Arkansas, I have been both a teaching assistant and the lead instructor for Calculus 1.

Geometry

I have helped high school students study for the ACT which includes geometry.

Prealgebra

I have successfully helped students through various Algebra courses, so I understand what skills they need and what skills they learn in Prealgebra.

Precalculus

I have been a teaching assistant for Precalculus at the University of Arkansas.

Trigonometry

At the University of Arkansas, trigonometry is included in the precalculus curriculum, so I have experience teaching students about trigonometry. It is also a highly used subject in Calculus, which I also have experience teaching.
