About

Hi, I’m Michelle Colletto and I am passionate about teaching! I love helping students improve their grades. I have been teaching English Language Arts, French, Spanish, debate/speech, drama, reading, writing, and literature for 34 years. I have two Masters degrees: one in English (High School) and one in Instruction, Curriculum, and Technology. I also hold a California Single Subject Credential (6th-12 grade) in English. In addition, I am an Orton-Gillingham certified reading teacher. If you’re struggling, or just want an overall improvement, give me a call, I can help!

I love to get students excited about learning! Seeing students do well and gain confidence with their learning skills, brings me so much joy! Reading is the number one skill that raises intelligence, but when a person has to read things 3 or 4 times to comprehend, answer questions, write a summary, take notes, study for a test, or write an essay, even when they're in college, it makes learning difficult, not to mention the time it takes to get the work done. I teach students skills and strategies to become better readers and writers, cutting down the time it takes to get the work done. Just learning a few key skills, such as writing a summary or paraphrasing can change their lives to one of success!

I also love teaching French and Spanish. As a student of both languages, I understand the challenges and how to teach strategies to not only make it easier to learn the language, but also more fun! I started learning French when I was 11 years old and living abroad with my parents. I did my undergraduate studies in Paris, where I lived for 10 years. I later married a Spanish diplomat and had to learn Spanish to help represent Spain abroad. I did this for 22 years and now I'm back in the US ready to help with beginning or improving your Spanish or French! Learning a new language also helps us learn more about our own language (and ourselves) which in turn helps us express ourselves better and augments our vocabulary.

    My name is Malika and Ive known Michelle for a long time because I am still taking her lessons In English grammar, and I could not express or describe how incredible this teacher is explaining English to me. I always wanted someone who has good experience and knowledgeable on the courses I was taking and she delivered everything with ease. Michelle is phenomenal tutor. Dont miss your opportunity to level up your knowledge as she is the best teacher you will ever have .

Thanks to Michelle, I have improved my English grade 10 points and all because of her.
