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

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with a wide range of students who speak another language other than English for their first language. These students range in age from children to adult learners. Also, I have helped individuals whose first language was Russian, Korean, Mandarin, French and Spanish. As a result, I am familiar with many different methods for teaching ESL students. I have also helped ESL learners prepare for the TOEFL exam. I am able to help people develop their vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, and improve their pronunciation in English.

Soccer

I played soccer for over 25 years. In high school I was named first team all district defender for two consecutive years. I also was chosen to participate on the first women's team that Southern Methodist University ever had when I was a junior attending college there.

I have coached high school girls soccer in San Angelo, Texas, leading the team to the playoffs the first year it was in existence. I have also taught numerous soccer classes for youngsters at Audubon Recreation Center as a part of Garland Parks and Recreation.

I love soccer, and I love kids, so I believe I would be an excellent tutor for someone who wants to develop his/her skills in this area.

Study Skills

I have taught several classes on effective studies skills. I have broken study skills down into particular areas, including: organization, note taking, improved reading comprehension, effective studying techniques, and test taking strategies. Once students master each of these areas, they will find that they can do their homework faster and more effectively. They will also be able to overcome some of their test taking anxiety and improve their exam scores. As a result, they build their confidence in their abilities and their grades naturally improve.

TAKS

I am interested in helping students prepare for the TAKS test. I am a certified teacher in both Math and English, and I have several years of experience helping students pass the TAKS. I can help students with all the different subject areas from Reading and Math to Writing, Science, and Social Studies. In the past I have assisted a wide range of students from 3rd graders all the way up to high school students who needed to pass the TAKS EXIT level exam in order to graduate. I have a very successful track record based on helping students understand the best taking strategies as well as improving their knowledge in the various subject areas.

Web Design

I have created five of my own web sites as well as helping three other people design, write, and edit their web pages. I know basic HTML code as well as programs like FrongPage and iWeb on both IBM and Mac platforms. In addition, I know how students can post both blogs and web pages at a variety of free sites on the Internet.

For the past five years, I have been teaching a web page design summer camp for students ranging in age from 11-17 years old at the SMU-In-Legacy campus. In this class, I teach students the basics of good web page design - from choosing good color and graphics to creating relevant links. In addition, I explain to students the basic steps necessary to get their web pages up and running with a server. This class is very popular, and I often teach 4-5 full sections of 22 students in each class.

I believe the ability to create web pages is an important skill people need to master so that they will be able to communicate and market themselves, their services, and products in today's competitive global economy.

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.
