About Melissa

Hello,

I have successfully taught a wide range of ages and abilities for many years. I have co-taught K/1, 1, 2, and substitute taught preschool through high school. I have also experienced much success tutoring students from preschool to college. This last school year, I was the Interventionist Teacher at a Los Angeles public Waldorf inspired charter elementary school. I love to teach, and I would be honored to help support your wonderful and nurturing learning environment.

“I am a teacher because I enjoy hard work and helping others find success. I want students to experience meaningful, joyful, and interesting learning that applies to their lives. I believe this can be accomplished through the use of hands-on/minds-on activities, cooperative learning, and integrated curriculum.“ Unknown

I give everything to teaching, and I am richly rewarded in return. When a student begins to discover their own uniqueness, importance, contributions, and abilities, there is nothing more satisfying.

Upon request, I have many recommendation letters I can provide for you. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your goals and how I can contribute to them.

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.
