About Melinda

I am currently enrolled in the honors program at Scottsdale Community College and will be transferring to Arizona State University next year. I am currently working on a double BS in psychology and mathematics. I am ultimately striving towards my goal of being a child psychiatrist.

I am capable of tutoring many aspects of studies. My strengths lie in math, reading, writing, ballet, and science. I have over six years of experience working as a nanny and have been a consistent homework helper. In addition, I have been tutoring math at my college. I also work as a volunteer tutor for several programs across the valley.

Math is one of my favorite subjects! I am currently working as a math tutor at my college and I have tutored children that I have nannied in every level of mathematics.

I love tutoring all ages and I look forward to helping my students reach their academic goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ballet

I have been dancing ballet since I was four years old. I have been to dance summer intensive and trained extensively throughout my teen years. I am currently taking ballet classes and I have previously taught ballet to children.

Cooking

I am an excellent cook and baker! I have taken cooking lessons to improve my skills and I have given my friends cooking lessons to improve their skills. I am able to follow complicated recipes with ease and add my own flair to the flavors.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over six years of nannying experience. I have helped children of all school ages with their homework. I have covered all of the standard school subjects and have taught the children that I nanny for test preparation and improved their skills.

Handwriting

I have helped children improve and learn handwriting skills. I have taught cursive and print and offered advice on how they can improve. I am able to come up with fun solutions to the monotony of rewriting to improve handwriting.

Study Skills

As a nanny, I have effectively helped children improve their study habits. I have helped them improve their time management skills and helped them learn how to focus on their work. The children that I nannied for had huge improvements in their grades due to their improved study skills. I have also worked through other tutoring companies as a tutor to help my students study for tests and improve their study habits.

Yoga

I currently teach yoga at a local studio. I also have had private students in the past who improved their abilities with my corrections. I am also a yoga student myself. I am able to do advanced poses with ease and have have helped other students improve their skills with constructive feedback.

Melinda helped me study for a nursing entrance exam (the Kaplan). She made sure to write out every step of the math problems, so I would be able to study even without her. I am dyslexic and she found ways to write out the problems that catered to me. I was nervous about tutoring before meeting Melinda, and now I am excited to set up more lessons with her! Tutoring someone who is older isn't always
