About Melissa

I have a BA in English with a History concentration. I have experience in different types of tutoring and am looking forward to working with many different students. I have worked with children that have special needs including dyslexia and English as a second language. I have also worked with children on basic reading and phonics skills. I have worked on ACT and SAT test preparation for reading and writing skills for High School Students. I have also worked with children on Study Skills. I like to take a hands on approach and discover the best way of learning for each individual student whether it is auditory, mechanical, or visual and apply methods that will enable them to gain the most from their tutoring sessions and apply the skills learned to practical applications.

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.

American History

I love American History. I have studied it very thoroughly and have a great knowledge of it. I have taken a variety of courses including American History I and II, History of the New Republic, Louisiana and Arkansas History, and also Political Science. I have also studied American literature in relation to historical events in American History.

English

I love studying the English Language. I have done extensive studies on it including a trip to the United Kingdom where I obtained a better knowledge of English as a language of multiple countries and cultures.
