My goal is simple. Break down complex calculus concepts into easily understood steps that you understand. I have completed Calculus I/II/III and Deferential Equations and applied the math concepts to solve real-world engineering problems so I know Calculus well. My Masters level coursework has trained me to approach complex problems in a clear-cut methodical way. Experience gained over 7 years teaching and tutoring 1:1 has shown me how to explain problems and strategies in a way that make sense to you. I know math can be difficult, and I want to help you increase your skills, build confidence, and extend your knowledge to bring out your best. Struggling with homework, or receive a disappointing test grade? Let’s work together to simplify Calculus and help you succeed!

These lessons are focused on re-awakening the student to their creative potential through authentic self-expression. Although centered around the voice, Michelle will use various techniques to help unlock any resistance or hesitation to expressing ones whole self more fully in the world. By first understanding and recognizing the voice as a vessel for creativity and authenticity, we can then cultivate habits and techniques, which allow the student to gain confidence, joy and inspiration through the expression of their authentic self. These lessons are ideal for those wishing to gain more confidence in their speaking voice, the individual looking to overcome any type of performance anxiety and/or for the student wishing to cultivate a speaking voice that more fully reflects and resonates the individual they desire to express themselves as. This can also be a wonderful opportunity for the seasoned performer to take their artistry and connection to their craft to the next level.

Do you ever feel like there’s so much untapped potential within you, just waiting to come out?

Do you have acting or public speaking skills that are just sitting there?

Or maybe you just want to become a pro at acting or speaking publicly, but don’t know where to start…

Well, it’s my job to guide you through this!

I have built a new coaching method, rejecting typical cookie-cutter teaching techniques that anyone can apply by reading a manual and instead developed a brand new strategy.

My acting classes take place with compassion, listening, and understanding at their basis: everyone likes to talk, but nobody is ever there to listen.

During my coaching sessions, you will have my full attention: I’ll hear you and mirror what I see with kind and thoughtful words.

Together, we’ll eliminate the roadblocks that are stopping you from succeeding.

I’ve been acting, directing, and producing for 20 years, and I’ve even performed for the Royal Family.

"Aalok Shah's in depth knowledge of admission testing, coupled with his easy demeanor, made all the difference for our son as he prepped for the college process. In addition to advising our son on the proper material to study, Aalok taught him to strategically tackle each section and manage his question answering time accordingly. He set up realistic weekly goals for our son to meet as well as providing many study guides and materials for his reference. We found Aalok’s advice on college planning extremely useful and he was always readily available to answer any questions that we had. Aalok’s calm and encouraging personality eased the stress surrounding standardized testing. This fall, our son will join the Rutgers University inaugural Honors College Class of 2019 with a full tuition, room & board scholarship worth $102,400. We are extremely grateful to Aalok for the integral role he played in making this happen. We cannot recommend Aalok highly enough to any family who is embarking on the college pathway."

"Jennifer is a wonderful tutor who not only has deep expertise in her subjects but knows how to take that expertise and help her students to become better students. The result is that her students are able to retain what is taught in various subjects. My daughter has been tutored for years by Jennifer and is an honors student. We definitely believe that Jennifer is a major factor in her success. We recommend her highly and as my daughter has matured during her time with Jennifer, she values her insight and advice as she plans to take the next steps toward college admission. We are very fortunate to have a resource in our community that not only we as parents value, but that the students themselves value too."

"Mrs. Branch was my teacher for 3 years on Orcas island. Due to family and health struggles I often wanted to give up on ever graduating. However thanks to her dedication and passion for education not only did I graduate but she also relight my dream of one day teaching. I now teach in the very rooms she taught me and encouraged my education. The math lessons that I once despised her for assigning are now ones I used on a daily basis and am so glad she did not let me stop until I fully understood them."

"I have had several lessons with Jennie Bissell in my home. I often give lectures in academic settings, and I was hoping to improve the quality and fluency of my speech to a level equivalent to top public speakers. Working with Jennie, I made improvements beyond what I could have expected. We worked on a variety of breathing and relaxation techniques used by professional actors. By focusing on producing speech "on voice" the quality and ease of understanding of my speaking increased substantially with immediate benefits. I highly, highly recommend her services for anyone interested in improving their public speaking skills."
