Meet Michelle

Michelle Connolly is the founder of LearningMole.com, mum of three children and a primary school teacher she created the website to support parents, offer advice and practical, interactive ideas to help parents and teachers challenge, teach and develop children’s skills.

“Education today can be minefield for parents, I know as a parent and primary teacher myself methods of learning are constantly changing and it can be difficult to keep up! The strategies we were taught as children are almost non-existent and it can be difficult to support your child at home as you learn the new methods they are exploring in school.

The words that’s not how I did in school’ are what inspired me to set up LearningMole, until I became a parent myself I didn’t quite realise how challenging homework, homeschooling and generally supporting your children could actually be.

I have been teaching children from 4 -11 years old for the past 14 years in the UK, Dubai and Egypt – that’s over 2730 days teaching nearly 400 children and every day is different. I love teaching and I learn something new every day from my classes as well as from my own children. The way children think and approach learning situations is amazing and I hope that you will get to experience similar amazement while working with your own children. Always have high expectations and always be ready for your children to challenge your thinking.”
