Michelle

I enjoy working with students to meet their personal academic goals. My approach to test prep starts with a thorough review of the material to refresh any topics that might be weak. Then we complete a variety of practice problems to familiarize the student with the format of the exam and the common tricky situations.

I earned a PhD in biomedical engineering from The University of Michigan in 2013. I have since started a nonprofit organization which focuses on developing low-cost sustainable agriculture practices.

What is your teaching philosophy?

Practice leads to mastery.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Discuss prior performance and future goals. Review the basics to identify any weak areas. Put together a plan of attack.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Break the skill or concept down into very simple steps. If a student is particularly struggling in a certain area, I try to find out if there is a root weak area that is contributing to the confusion. Fixing the root usually resolves the issue.
