I recently graduated from the accelerated bachelors of nursing program at Creighton University. I also have a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from Arizona State University and a master's degree in Medical Science from the University of South Florida College of Medicine.

I am primarily interested in nursing and the sciences but I am happy to help in a variety of subjects. I have tutored students both independently and through institutions for many years. I am well aware that the same study methods do not work for all students and I have a variety of methods that I am happy to teach, I will keep trying until we find the best method for you. I have extensive experience with pre-med and nursing students.

I have worked with students of all ages, from nannying toddlers and helping them study ahead of their grade level, and working with struggling junior high/ high school students, to college & graduate students, and even adults. I lived in Japan for 2 years and taught private lessons and small group classes where I formulated the curriculum, activities, quizzes and take home assignments. The classes were not only educational and challenging, but they were fun too. For the past 5 years I have been tutoring students full-time in a variety of subjects. I work with students all over the country from many universities.

I know personally how challenging school can be. I have been there, I have survived and succeeded, and I would love to help you get there too. I can help any age student with study skills and can help develop effective study plans and schedules to help you ace your exams. While reviewing content, I can provide different explanations than what was used in class to help you grasp the material. I will teach you study skills that work most effectively for you, and test strategies along the way too. If necessary, I can also recommend outside resources, both video and print, to maximize your understanding.

I have 1000+ hours through Wyzant and over 4000 hours of independent tutoring. Please read reviews on my profile :)

As I have just graduated the ABSN, I am currently studying for the NCLEX. My schedule is quite flexible and I'm happy to work with your scheduling needs.

I look forward to working with you towards a brighter future!

Sincerely,
Melissa

Physical Science,

Physical Science

When I was in grade school I never liked science, even though I won "Science Student of the Year Award" from the district in 5th grade. I didn't think I was good at science, and I dreaded it in college. But looking back over old report cards I realized that I always did well in science. I must have had a mental block about it. Now that I've been through college and grad school and am about to start Medical School I realize just how fun science can be IF it is taught right! I think it's very important to work with grade school students and find ways to get them interested in what they are learning. Chemistry always seemed "irrelevant" to me but after I realized how much it matters, and how practical it is, even in daily life, i found it so much more interesting. I believe that when students are interested in what they are learning they are far more likely to succeed.

Melissa is the best!

I have worked with Melissa pretty much weekly during the Advanced Health Assessment course. She always goes over out weekly 200+ slides and condenses it into a few boards. It is really helpful when studying a large amount of material at once. She is laid back, and go with the flow. She is always ready to cover the topics that I wanted to review, and she was knowledgeable about them. She also would point to slides that she felt would be important for testing! I would recommend her to a friend :)

Helpful Tutor

Melissa has been very helpful and helping me figure out how to organize my notes for my up coming exam. She is very knowledgeable and more that willing to take the time and slow things down if need be. I feel she has helped me prepare a lot more for the exam I am ready to take. I would recommend her to others that are looking for a flexible great person to help them study there material.

Great experience!

Melissa helped me with child growth & development, as well as immunizations. She was interested in my learning style and gave me great tips to make my style work even better for me. I'm definitely making another appointment.

Highly recommended!

Melissa is one of the most professional, punchual, educated, freindly, and most patietce tutor that I have. I have been working with her more than a year. I have learned so much from her without even realizing it. She brings the best qualities out of me while I am working with her. I have maintain 4.0 in my past nine classes with her help. She helped me through rough times in my life and taught me how to organize my time and life with two small childrens and full time work. She is allmost always available to read and edit my long papers. I don't have enough words to explain how she has help me to imporve my writing skills and will continue to help me online. I feel very much blessed to have her in my life. I highly recommend her to the students who's first lanuage is not english or had hard time writing long APA format papers. I had the honor to learn from the best teacher and made a good friend. I will contiune to work with her online for next two years.

Graduate level Physiology

My first session with Melissa was incredible. She taught me physiology for PA school and was so thorough! She has a lot of knowledge for applicable resources, videos, and pictures and this subject was so natural for her. She did an excellent job teaching me.

very attentive and understanding tutor

Melissa taught me better ways to study. She directed me in ways I would have other wise passed up. She was motivating and inspiring. I wish I could have half the knowledge she has.
