I am currently enrolled at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in the Aerospace Engineering Degree Program. I have experience in math up through Differential Equations, science up to Physics 3, multiple engineering classes specializing in aerodynamics and propulsion, technical report writing, and engineering economics. All AP tests I have taken I have passed with a 4 or higher including Calculus, U.S. and World History, Chemistry, and Government. I have also taken and received a 97 on the ASVAB. I am also certified in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.

I have been tutoring for 12 years. I was a school tutor for an elementary school in Sacramento for 6 years. I had experience teaching children from Kindergarten to Grade 6. I was also a tutor at the high school through my school's teacher academy program and JROTC. In high school, I tutored several underclassmen to improve their scores for the ASVAB and the SAT. All of the people I tutored saw a significant improvement.

Volleyball

I have been coaching volleyball for about 8 years for elementary, middle and high school. Every year I have coached the team has had a winning season. I believe every player needs to master the basics for the team to work as a whole. I have also played volleyball competitively since I was 12.

Very patient!

Melissa has to have a great deal of patience in dealing with our 13 year old daughter, and she has exceeded my expectations! She also spent some of her own time preparing a tool to assist with my daughter's organization, which actually excited my daughter! (What a surprise!) My daughter's grades have gone up as a result of her work with Melissa. I would HIGHLY recommend her as a tutor.

SAT Tutoring A Disaster

We hired Melissa to improve my daughter's SAT scores which in June 2012 were: Reading 630, Math 550 and Writing 610 (first attempts at SAT). After 2 1/2 months of tutoring on almost a daily basis with Melissa, my daughter sat for the Oct. 2012 exam. Her scores were Reading 590, Math 530, Writing 560. Not only was there no improvement after tutoring, my daughter actually lost significant ground. We had given Melissa free rein and let her determine when, what and how to teach the subjects. Melissa was also tutoring my daughter in her high school Pre-Calculus class and my daughter currently has the lowest grade she has ever had in Math (81%). We have had other math tutors in the past with reasonable results. Melissa appears to be a nice, cooperative person but for whatever reason her methods are not working with my daughter.

Awesome tutor

Melissa is a very patient tutor. I have been out of school for a long time and she explains things in a way that I can understand them. She is very friendly and is always happy to help. I am very lucky to have found her to help me. I would highly recommend her.
