Pamela Mikkelsen Tutoring
About this pro
I focus on individualized positive teaching to motivate each student. I continually adjust my teaching style to suit the learning style of each student. My diverse background provides me with many different stories to tell and experiences to draw from and I am able to apply textbook concepts to real-life situations. I see and demonstrate connections between chemistry and cooking, physics and dance, math and sports. My analogies between seemingly disparate things are endless! Growing up in the different worlds of Science and Dance has been an unimaginable benefit to my own growth that I love sharing the integration of subjects with others.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer tutoring services in your home or at a public location like a library, cafe or park. I will travel up to 10 miles at no additional cost and up to 30 miles with a small travel fee.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have been an educator for most of my life: helping out friends before the big test, tutoring all grade levels, teaching dance. I even tutored my sister in her college classes when I was a Junior in high school! I got my first tutoring job when I was in Junior High School working with elementary school students in math and I continued through High School doing volunteer after school tutoring in the library. This work was facilitated by my other job as a dance instructor since both require individualized lesson planning for each student's unique needs. I find great fulfillment in helping students reach their goals and gain confidence in themselves.
