"English, Writing, Reading, Speech Communication"
I am a former high school English teacher missing teaching. Eight years ago I became disabled and had to quit teaching, but I miss it terribly. While I still cannot teach full time, I have gotten to the point where I can tutor, especially since I do better later in the day but still cannot work even a solid part time. Tutoring a couple hours a few nights a week is the perfect way to fulfill my love of teaching and working with students.

I highly recommend Michelle. She is first and foremost a great listener! Her approach is such that she is genuinely interested in the real world application of how I specifically foresee using the Photoshop software. Michelle has a knack for explaining things in lay terms and I liked the way she paused and helped think through ideas and problems, and walked me through the solution. We used my real project scenarios as an introduction to the basic tools and functions of the software. Interactive from the get-go as I used my laptop, went through all of the key strokes, etc., to complete the tasks. Looking forward to my next session.
