Hello! My name is Melissa and I am a bilingual (Spanish) educator who loves tutoring Math! I have over 10 years of experience (I know... I look so young but I am 33 years old). I am really passionate about helping students from all backgrounds achieve success in math because I myself used to struggle with the subject. However, with a lot of hard work I mastered the subject and obtained a Master's degree in Mathematics. My goal is to "instill confidence" into my students, and help them achieve success in mathematics and in their professional and personal goals! I currently teach math at a Kirkwood community college and also teach online classes at Iowa Western community college.

**Experience working with elementary, middle, high school, and college students.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

My calculus student Patty earned a 30/30 on her last quiz! I'm so happy for her : ) Great job Patty!!

I just want to say how proud I am of Jeffrey(Algebra 2 student). He is working hard and received an 89.5% on his last trimester test. He has been very consistent on his last exams/quizzes (B+/A-). Great job Jeff and keep up the good work! Melissa : )

I am so proud of my student Jeffrey! He got a B+ on his Algebra 2 test and was one point away from an A-. How exciting is that! His first test was a C-/D- before I started working with him and just after 2 sessions with him, his grade increases!! Keep up the good work Jeffrey! Melissa:)

Very positive person! — I observed while Melissa worked with my nephew. My nephew was very reluctant to go to tutoring on Sunday morning but he needed the practice for finals. She has a great manner about her and he warmed up to her right away. I highly recommend her for someone who has math anxiety. ...
