This is how 5 referees rated Michelle:
I tutor students in a variety of English topics, but my passion is in guiding students as they write college essays. I enjoy helping them with research, organization and study skills, and literature courses. I understand the academic skills students need to gain to be successful. My background in theater allows me to be creative as an English tutor.
I earned my bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts and Theater from The New School and went on to earn my master's degree in Theater History, Criticism, and Literature from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I have 10 years of experience teaching high school and college classes. Some specific courses I can tutor students in include Comparative Literature, English Grammar and Syntax, and Expository Writing.
I understand that lectures may be necessary to give students the basic foundations of knowledge, but I believe they learn best when they are allowed to demonstrate critical thinking and I use active learning strategies to foster this. I encourage my students to consider the objectives of an assignment as well as how they will be evaluated.
