Michelle, a qualified Primary school teacher, holds a Masters degree in Education and has training in numeracy and literacy intervention to assist all students, but particularly those with dyscalculia, dyslexia and other learning difficulties. Having trained through the Institute of Multi-sensory Language Education (IMSLE) in the Orton-Gilllingham (OG) method to deliver literacy intervention, she completed OG Maths training with Ron Yoshimoto, Master Trainer in the OG approach. Michelle is a SPELD NSW Tutor, an accredited Cracking the ABC Code teacher and an accredited member of the Australian Tutoring Association.
Using a multi-sensory, sequential, evidence-based approach, Michelle works one-on-one with students from K-12 to overcome their challenges with numeracy and literacy. Numeracy programs are delivered following the CRA Methodology (from concrete to representational to abstract) using Maths Australia materials. She is keenly aware of the effect learning difficulties have on self esteem and confidence levels and works patiently with each student, at their own pace, on individually tailored plans. She is motivated by a desire to help all students access the curriculum, conquer topics of difficulty and make progress in numeracy and literacy.
Michelle conducts lessons both in person in Turramurra, NSW and online via Zoom. Feel free to contact her and chat about your needs.
