Special education teacher in Nashville with masters and 10 years of experience

Methodology

I love teaching one-on-one or in small groups so students can receive the attention and instruction they deserve. I teach explicitly, then follow up direct instruction with guided and independent practice.

Background

Hi! I'm Michelle. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Tennessee in 2012. I immediately enrolled in graduate school and graduated with a master's in special education from Lipscomb University in 2014. I have taught elementary special education at a local public school for five years.

My favorite aspect of teaching is instilling confidence in my students. They are capable of so much growth, but sometimes need the confidence to achieve their full potential. Seeing students genuinely enjoy learning is the most rewarding part of my job.

Although I love all subjects, I prefer tutoring in reading and math. I welcome ALL students, as well!
