About Melissa

I am a former UC Berkeley student who has found a passion in teaching others. From high school and through college, I was able to balance class work and tutoring, as well as homeschooling over the summer. I have tutored in all levels of math from prealgebra-calculus including statistics, all levels of high school science as well as anatomy, college chemistry and college biology, English, and history.

Through my major I had to take many science and math courses as well as a variety of English courses and courses in every subject for the liberal arts standard at Berkeley. I have a passion for math and science, but also love to tutor English and help with tutoring for the college prep tests. In general, the students that I have helped raise at least 1 grade and score 10% higher on college tests.

I have always been interested in tutoring math. I was at the head of my class in high school as a math student and in college. Math requires logic and understanding to succeed and I enjoy teaching this logic based subject.

In addition to math, I enjoy tutoring all subjects. I like to provide a basic understanding of the subject and often go backwards in my tutoring process before going forwards. You need to learn your abcs before you can learn to write, and this is the approach I take to all subjects.

Please contact me if you are interested in my tutoring. I would love to work with you and schedule a lesson soon.

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.
