Friendly IB scholar at Yale University offering low-cost, high-quality virtual lessons to grades K-12

Methodology

I adapt very well to different learning styles and will take advantage of that when I am teaching. I may try several methods to see which works best for my student before getting too deep into a topic. These include visuals, real-life applications, fun games, and storytelling! For the SAT, I also implement official practice tests and an online whiteboard. As for college preparation, I take my students through each process step by step with LOTS of personal experience.

Background

I grew up teaching English and math to my two younger siblings (grades 5&7), who are both now at the top of their classes. In high school, I was part of a peer tutoring club and also volunteered briefly at a local K-12 mathematics center. Currently, I am tutoring two students in SAT and college preparation. I was also recently accepted by BoldABC, a tutoring company for kids in China. With the time I have during my gap year at Yale, I am excited to tutor here at a low price to provide aid in these times of need :)

Michelle's response

Lucy is one of the cutest students I've worked with so far. She is energetic and always eager to answer math problems, as well as very compliant. I always have so much fun talking to her. I'm grateful to have been selected as her tutor!

Michelle is a trustworthy teacher because she genuinely wants to see the betterment of her tutees and because she will persistently help and give the student many resources and options to help further their understanding of the topic she is tutoring them on. With every lesson, she is prepared with a google slide and the tips she is going to give me to help me complete as much as possible during the lesson and a checklist for after the lesson with further work that I have to complete before the next lesson. I would recommend Michelle to other Superprof members because she really has helped me with my college application process and we have plans to get my grades up which I know is going to happen. She has really encouraged me to do better and I know that she will be a blessing to others.

I met Michelle through my high school. As a student in a grade lower, I admired Michelle’s academic abilities and achievements. Michelle has been available to help me since she aided me with planning a project sophomore year (I am now a senior). Michelle’s style of teaching does not shy away from offering praise for what you do correctly. She is incredibly supportive and uses positive feedback with constructive criticism to help. I recommend her to all other Superprof members because she incorporates kindness, patience, and attentiveness in her teaching, which I really appreciated when learning from her.

Michelle is a hard-working and intelligent person who loves to make learning fun. Even if you're completely clueless about something, she is patient and will try to help you understand it better. I recommend her to kids of all ages!
