« Perfect! Michelle provides excellent guidance for essay writing. I'm working on my dissertation, which is difficult to structure, and her help in organizing my ideas and explaining what I need to elaborate is superb. I appreciate the enthusiasm as well, she took a genuine interest in my topic which is always a great feeling. »

Learn the "how" instead of the "what" of social sciences research from history instructor, UBC graduate with minor in history

Methodology

The humanities curriculum that students follow at school often focuses on teaching the "what" -- what happened in December of 1773 (Boston tea party?) -- instead of the “how,” as in, how should you write an A-level history research paper? This is the gap I aim to fill with my instruction. With my undergraduate training in historical research and analysis, I can share the "how" side of the equation so students are more confident in their approach to writing essays in the social sciences.

I constantly strive to bring in new material for lessons. Based on the student's needs, I will either give an introduction or assign readings to the student to help establish a basic understanding of the subject. Then, we will engage with a variety of primary and secondary sources to deepen our understanding of the subject and practice historical analysis. The methodology varies based on the student's learning preferences, but my prioritizing of helping the student develop critical thinking and analytical skills remains a constant.

For IHBB (history bee and bowl) students, get in touch for more details.

One of our best! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and responds during the day. Michelle will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

I am a UBC graduate with 5 years teaching experience in middle and high school humanities and science. I currently hold a BA in English literature and a minor in history with a focus on modern China. I have a deep understanding of the discipline and understand what instructors want in essays and projects.

I have worked with many middle and high school students on history and social studies in the past. I am familiar with the BC curriculum and have created full courses that help students reach their learning goals. Feel free to schedule a free initial meeting to discuss goals and expectations.

My son was struggling in his first year university writing course so I found Michelle. He did 5 sessions with Michelle for his final research paper and he told me he learned more from her than he learned all through high school. Highly recommend

Michelle is considerate teacher
and she knows how to communicate with teenagers. My son was very shy and didn’t talk much at the beginning during the tutorial. Michelle is being very patient with him and help him out little by little. I am so glad we found Michelle as my son’s tutor. She helps a lot.

My six grader loves Michelle so much, after her first week writing lesson with Michelle, she told me, “I am so happy I know how to put the thoughts in my mind onto my essay now, it will be a hight quality work this time".
Michelle is a patient, cheerful and reliable tutor, she always well organise and prepare the lesson. She explained everything she taught with clarity and made sure my daughter could understand all, she showed her how to do editing work and let her see how the difference was. She also lead my daughter practice critical thinking for the book they read together. She always text me to let me know the progress and her recommendation.
My daughter has three lessons with Michelle every week now, but she never complained about homework or if it was too much.
I am so appreciate she helped my daughter find the interest of writing and helped build up her confidence on writing.
