All of Melita’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Melita’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Elementary (K-6th)

While I have taught and tutored adults, college level and HS subjects, I am also well qualified to teach K-6, specifically math, language arts and science. I have worked with youngsters, aged 5 through 12 on math, reading, physical science, and swimming. I am well versed in the subject matter, of course, but also have a great deal of experience with the age group. I've specifically tutored in 2nd grade math, 4th grade math, 6th grade math, K and 2nd grade science, and K and 3rd grade reading, as some examples. I am very patient and relate well to the different development phases of this age group. I have taught swimming to over 500 children, aged 6 through 12, over the last few years!

General Computer

As a mechanical engineer, I am a proficient user of various softwares and computer platforms. I worked for IBM for 18 years, using a variety of their software applications - including Lotus Notes, VMWare, WebSphere, and engineering application software like ANSYS, CATIA Elfini, ABAQUS, and ENOVIA. I have also used (and debugged) the AIX software set. In my daily engineering work, I use extensively Microsoft products such as EXCEL, WORD, and POWERPOINT. I have set up new computers, loaded (and debugged) software applications and user tools, such as Skype, virus protection and Media software. I have installed (and debugged!) many peripheral components, such as printers, wireless pointers, hard drives, recording devices, etc. While I am not Microsoft certified, I have managed my own suite of computers and software tools for many years.

My computer knowledge is general and quite current.
I scored 100% on both the Word and Excel tests, completing each in less than 2 minutes.

Precalculus

As an engineer, I use Math - in all its forms - on an everyday basis. I have studied advanced Maths, and applied them through my Masters level classes. My qualification tests for wyzant Maths were all perfect scores, although there is no test for pre Algebra. PreAlgebra is an introduction to some of the basic concepts of number theory and variables and I am confident that - with my teaching skills and experience with the more advanced subject matter, that I am qualified to tutor pre Algebra.

Swimming

I learned to swim when I was two years old, living at the ocean with my eight siblings! At aged 14, I had completed all of my Lifesaving certificates but was required to wait until I was 15 to get certified. I began teaching swimming classes at age 15 and continued for several years. I swam competitively myself from an early age through my first year of college, and still swim recreationally today. I taught my husband to swim and both children - who are proficient competitive swimmers. I have most recently taught at the Mystic Y for 10 Program sessions, now (about a year and a half). I teach both children and Adults, both Beginner swimmers, and accomplished swimmers. I teach private lessons, when it benefits the student, and have taught beginner classes as large as 11 students at a time. I am currently teaching a triathlete training class, with 15 on the roster. I have taught students with a variety of disabilities, including learning difficulties, autism, hearing problems, and physical limitations. It is very rewarding and I love it! I receive many, many compliments on my teaching abilities; I have been able to get children and adults with strong fears into the deep end and swimming independently. I have had adults who tried lessons for years unsuccessfully, learn to swim successfully with me. Many parents have told me that their child has progressed much faster in their lessons with me, than ever before!

I teach body mechanics in the water, using exercises to ease discomfort for new swimmers (the class is called Fear No More). For early swimmers, I teach stroke technique, efficient breathing, and strength exercises. For accomplished swimmers, I improve strokes for efficiency and speed, and teach various training and racing methods.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
