About Melanie

Hi my name is Melanie, and I hold an Alaska teaching certificate in elementary education. I am currently working as a kindergarten teacher in a Kenai Peninsula Borough elementary school. I have previously provided intervention services to students in grades kindergarten through third grade from several elementary schools. I hold an Associates degree in Early Childhood, a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters in Education with an emphasis on Learning and Technology. As a mom of a teenage daughter and as a recent student myself, I know what it takes to give your student the extra help that they need to succeed in school. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to you and your child as a tutor in any of the following subjects: math, science or language arts.

Elementary (K-6th)

My educational background includes an Associates in Early Childhood, a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Masters in Education with an emphasis on Learning and Technology. Further my experience in teaching in an elementary school classroom has provided me with extensive strategies and skill in working with children from many different backgrounds and diverse cultures. Finally, previous experience providing intervention services to students from several different elementary schools further supports my qualifications to work with children from grades kindergarten through 6th grade.

Phonics

Through my educational studies I have learned extensively about child development and the process of teaching phonics to young children. My experience working as a pre-school teacher and as an elementary school teacher has provided me with extensive first hand knowledge of how children learn letter sounds and how to decode and segment words as they learn to read. Strategies that I have used with my own students has proven beneficial in helping them to learn to read.

Study Skills

From previous experience in my capacity as a student success specialist with a community college in Indiana I have worked with adult college students to provide them with strategies to assist them with study skills. These are strategies that I have learned through my own educational experience. Further experience in working with elementary school students and my own children have provided me with a skill set that has proven successful with children.
