About Michelle

Taking into account both my past and present teaching experience I think I could be a great asset to your education. I have taught English at many skill levels and paces, including middle school and high school and the IB and AP guided curriculum. My most recent position used Engage NY curriculum where a lot of the planning was done and I just modified and adapted to my style, but I have also had a hand in curriculum development where I worked with co-workers developing guides to be used in the current and future classrooms of the school. I utilize technology in many ways in my panning and teaching, and I did my first Professional Development plan for re certification on technology. I also have extensive experience with the extended or block style schedule, and I enjoy the workshop model because it allows me to work one-on-one with almost every student on a daily and as needed basis. I am looking for a school to make a long-term commitment with where I can grow with my students and co-workers and form a community.

Teaching is not a job, it is not a box one checks under occupation, or some nine to five you can clock in and clock out of. Teaching is something you carry with you every day, all day, it is something which dictates how you look at the world and interact with every social, political, and cultural event. Teaching is my way of life. Currently, I am motivated to find a summer and part-time position which will welcome my enthusiasm and hard work, and allow me to grow as an educator while I teach my heart out.

Since I have been a teacher for more than 10 years I have experience and materials for a wide variety of subject areas. I love reading and writing and my passion and dedication to teaching will rub off on you. I do my best to make every lesson interesting and challenging, but also relevant and applicable to future studies and real life. I have been involved in curriculum planning and writing tests in addition to teaching too many English classes to list but to name a few: 9-12, women's literature, African-American literature, British literature, world literature, IB Literature Part 1 and 4, AP Literature, and film.

While I am currently teaching I can find the time to tutor you and in the summer I have wide open availability.Education is at the heart of solving so many political and cultural problems and it is my mission to help each future generation to embrace, value, and respect their education. Since I have lived and taught outside of the U.S and traveled extensively I think this allows me to bring a unique perspective to tutoring and help create informed citizens and global thinkers.

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.

Common Core

I have taught English for 10 years, most of those years using Common Core to guide my lesson planning. I have written curriculum using the standards for English and Reading and I was trained on them by the Wisconsin DPI when they were new. With a team of co-workers we even modified the curriculum into language appropriate for students and our front boards.

Praxis

I am qualified to tutor people who might need to take the one based in English. I am certified to teach English and this test has all knowledge from those years. I previously tutored a friend who was struggling to pass her Praxis for elementary education and after working with me twice she passed. I have many test prep and grammar materials.

Public Speaking

I am certified by the IB to teach their curriculum. Part 4 of the IB is dedicated to getting students ready for their Individual Oral Presentation which is a 10-15 minute presentation they develop over the semester. I taught this class for 3 years. I have many models of good and bad public speaking and I also have many lessons designed to evaluate Ted Talks and Presidents on their oral competency.
