With over twenty years of experience as an educator, I have taught English, English as a Second Language, U.S. history, civics, and consumer economics to high school students. In addition, I have taught ESL and computer applications to adults. Plus, I have many years of experience teaching teachers and administrators to integrate educational technology.

As a native English speaker, I have two degrees from Canadian universities and two advanced degrees from U.S. universities. I love the English language and literature, and I am a seasoned writer and editor. I enjoy working with both high school and adult students.

As an early adopter, I have been teaching with computers since 1984. I have a passion for and expertise with integrating technology in education.

I look forward to working with you to support your continuing growth and success, whatever your goals may be.

Great CBEST Math Tutor

I started with Melanie back in February, I believe; I was only meeting with her once a week or so. She was super helpful! She had a lot of patience and explained to me how to solve a math problem multiple ways. She also gave me blank practice tests to utilize and practice with on the days I wouldn't meet with her. I finally signed up for the math section of the CBEST for the 8th time and am proud to say I passed! Couldn't have done it without her help! She's awesome!
