About this tutor

I am a company of one and provide personalized attention to all clients.  My clients would say I am a teacher with a toolbox of strategies that makes learning easy and builds progress quick.  For over 7 years, I worked as a lead learning center at competitive Massacusetts school. I have my B.Ed in Elementary Education, a Master's degree in Teaching pre-k-8, and am a certfied dyslexia practicitoner.    I successfully work with students learned disabilities, students with adhd, and executive functioning difficulties. I believe the core of being a good teacher starts at the relationship you build with the student.  I use creativity, make games, and use movement to engage all parts of the brain. I pay particular attention to a child's learning needs and adjust lessons accordingly. I also tutor online to provide flexible scheduling and use an interactive white board.   

I teach kids how to read !! I help them crack a code they didn't know existed.

    Michelle is an excellent teacher and tutor. We have been working together for years and have developed a strong relationship. She cares deeply about our child and their education. Her teaching style is very caring, flexible and effective. She has many strategies to achieve the best learning results. We are most happy about how much our child has developed an intense love for learning while working with Michelle.

    Michelle is highly qualified, educated and dedicated! She makes personal lesson plans for my child and quickly assess her strengths and weaknesses- what to focus on and what skill she has mastered. She makes learning fun! My child is always laughing with her - but Michelle knows how to quickly redirect when my child gets off task! She is fantastic! I wish I could clone her to be my child’s full time teacher! I would highly recommend her. She is teaching my daughter for dsylexia but the tools she is teaching her are lifelong reading and writing tools she will need for her future! She is currently performing above grade level and I attribute that to Michelle’s tenacity, flexibility and dedication to ensuring my child is successful!
