About MELISSA

I have a Master's degree in special education and have been working as a teacher for students with multiple disabilities for a year. I have also been working with students with mental health issues to include autism and ADHD for 2 years as a counselor in the schools before becoming a teacher.

I am also a mother of 5, ages 1, 6, 10, and 2 age 18. I have been working with teens and preteens for the past 7 years through being a foster parent, residential group home teacher, Mental health counselor in the school system, and the past 2 years as a special education teacher. I also currently co-teach in a algebra class.

My passion has always been working with and mentoring youth, teaching and tutoring is just another way for me to reach out and support youth in our area. I am knowledgeable in many subjects and can support learning in almost any subject.

I have a Master's degree in human services and Special Education and have been working with students with special needs as a teacher since September 2014.

I am excited to work with others and help them meet their goals in life!

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
