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

ADD/ADHD

I have a master's degree in counseling and during my four years as a guidance counselor and four years as director of disability support services in higher education, I have worked closely with students who have ADHD diagnoses.

College Counseling

I have a masters degree in counseling which has paved the road to more than ten years of experience working in higher education. I have worked with students at all levels of their college career: from admission to academic support, through residence life, during career development and while transitioning to graduate school or the workplace.

Prior to working in higher education, I worked as a high school counselor. One of my favorite things about that role was helping young people figure out what their next step will be. It's tremendously rewarding for me to watch young people and individuals pursuing college after some years in the workplace empower themselves to delve into higher education and find the school that fits them best.

Pharmacology

As a LPC, I have taken extensive coursework in pharmacology as one of the most important aspects of how bodies respond to medication involves the interplay between body and medication as well as the reactions that differing medications have with each other. I enjoy the chemistry behind pharmacology as well as the math involved.

In learning about numerous medications, I have had to learn my own successful strategies for knowing...not just memorizing...all of the necessary information and can be successful sharing these strategies with my students.

Public Speaking

Over the years, I have become extremely proficient in speaking to small, medium and large groups. While academic courses have played an important part of building this competency in my own life, the larger part has been established through practice. It is not always easy to give presentations, but practice and preparation will boost comfort and give a huge dose of confidence when talking to groups of people.

Beyond giving numerous presentations to professional and educational bodies ranging from groups of five to five thousand, I have also worked with students of all ages to build the confidence and skills necessary for success in public speaking.

Study Skills

I have worked with students for well over ten years building academic and study skills through reinforcement and a multitude of other intervention techniques. My professional expertise extends from elementary aged students through adults seeking GED & post-secondary degrees.

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.
