Michele has been a standardized test instructor since 1998, but her passion for teaching began even earlier. During her junior year at Binghamton University, Michele was asked by her law professor to be his Teacher's Assistant, and a love of teaching ensued. She graduated from Binghamton with a double major in Pre-Law and English and a minor in Spanish. She then graduated magna cum laude from Binghamton with a Masters degree in Education. Michele commenced her teaching career as both a high school social studies teacher and an SAT/ACT instructor. She has written, illustrated, and published a children's journal workbook that not only is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, but also promotes daily reading, writing, and reflection. Michele has since left the classroom and has devoted all of her energy to successfully helping students of varying abilities and learning styles reach their potential on demanding standardized tests, namely the ACT, SAT, GRE, CHSEE, and SAT Subject Tests in Math Level I, U.S. History, and World History.
