About Melissa

I am currently a college English Instructor at Mount Saint Mary's University where I teach in the undergraduate English and graduate Humanities departments.

I also teach Latin Prep at a School once a week where I taught Middle School English and Lit for 17 years.

I am very comfortable working with students of all ages from 3rd grade on up to adults, and regardless of their current abilities. I am also a native of Los Angeles and very familiar with our city and the needs of all students. That's why I teach!

I am also a published non-fiction writer and member of The Authors Guild of New York and The Writers Guild of America.

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.

I currently teach at Mount Saint Mary's University - Freshmen English including remedial English, and Children's Literature in the Traditional college.
