Melissa came to us at a time my son was truly struggling in his studies. He was challenged in many areas and lacked the confidence to move forward. After speaking with Melissa briefly, I was initially struck by her own confidence and calm approach.
My son immediately took to Melissa. He looked forward to spending his time with her and he rapidly gained the confidence to begin to enjoy school. Her individualized plan and positive reinforcement approach gave my son a new set of experiences to take into the classroom and thrive!
She turned out to be the most influential person in my son's educational experience so far, surpassing even his teacher's at school. You would be very lucky to have Melissa help to guide your child into a enriched, fun, and personal learning experience. I know we are all better for having had her in our lives.
I highly recommend Melissa B. as a tutor. I was initially impressed with Melissa’s enthusiasm and optimism. She is very patient, organized, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with people of all ages. She has great teaching skills. She is my son's tutor. We like her pleasant and positive attitude.
Melissa has been coming to our house for a month now and our daughter works really well with her. Melissa is timely, thorough and knows how to spend her time wisely with our daughter. Our child is in 4th grade and is struggling with some math and English concepts. We find Melissa very knowledgeable, spot on, and so far we are pleased with her work. She also gives you feedback after each class which we found very useful. We are thinking about having Melissa come weekly on a regular basis. We would strongly recommend Melissa to any parent looking for a tutor with knowledge - she is after all a credentialed teacher - and since she is also teaching/substituting regularly, she has up to date experience on school subjects.
Melissa approached my son's lack of organization and study habits as though she knew what to do in two seconds. He know uses a timer to keep him on track and plan his subjects on typed paper to have him follow her suggested steps. He is very eager to work and only says "hi Mom" when he comes in the door instead of wasting valuable time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND THIS IS JUST THE FIRST SESSION.
Melissa has been tutoring my son for several months and I have been very pleased with her professionalism and tutoring techniques. Her method has increased his overall confidence. I have no hesitation recommending Melissa
Melissa is able to identify and approach my daughter at 4 to learn phonics through games and various different methods. Through these creative learning style, my daughter is able to learn quickly in a short period. We are satisfied with the course.
Melissa was great! She proofread my assignment in a short notice. Her feedbacks were very helpful. After revising what she told me to add or change, my paper was so much better. If it wasn't for Melissa, I don't think I would have gotten a good grade on the assignment. Thank you!! I'll be using your services again!
Melissa worked with my daughter over multiple sessions. She assessed her skill level in reading and grammar and created a plan to improve her performance. Melissa provided a good evaluation of where my daughter stands and suggested useful activities to continue her progress.
