Hi! My name is Michelle Grimm and I am so excited to begin my new adventure of mathematics tutoring online. I just recently retired in 2023 from 30 years in the brick and mortar setting in rural Northern Michigan. I absolutely loved being a teacher! It was very emotional leaving due to the closeness with the students and staff that I had developed over the years, but I was ready for a change. I am very passionate about teaching and helping my students achieve their full potential by providing them with personalized instruction. I absolutely believe that making a sincere connection with my students is one of the most important key factors of successful teaching. Being patient and understanding that all students can learn is also top priority. My former students would tell me how they really liked how I explained standards with explicit broken down detail. If one approach doesn't work, then I would try another. Besides math, I love being with my family and playing my guitar.
I have been teaching Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and MS Math in a brick and mortar setting for 30 years in Northern Michigan. I am certified and hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Mathematics Education. I also have been an after school tutor for the same school system for many years for students in grades 6-12. While tutoring I would work with either small groups of students or one to one. I was also the Math Chairman for 20+ years at the MS/HS where I was formally employed.
