Hello! My name is Melissa and I am a 2nd grade teacher. I have a type 03 teaching certificate with an endorsement in ESL. I have been teaching for ten years. I taught kindergarten for four years and 2nd grade for six years. I have also taught art at the Oak Park Art League to young children. I would describe my teaching method as student centered. I incorporate activities that are hands on and meaningful. As a reading tutor, I will help students increase their reading fluency, vocabulary, phonics skills and comprehension. I look forward to working with you!
