Upper Level Math, Sciences, and ACT
I have been tutoring students in upper level math and sciences for more than 6 years. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science from the University of California Irvine in 2007 studying both biology and earth sciences. After graduation, I spent two years working as a research assistant at a local environmental research firm gaining first hand experience in how the material taught in class is applied in professional laboratory settings. I went on to further my education at USC and graduated...
I have been tutoring students in upper level math and sciences for more than 6 years. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science from the University of California Irvine in 2007 studying both biology and earth sciences. After graduation, I spent two years working as a research assistant at a local environmental research firm gaining first hand experience in how the material taught in class is applied in professional laboratory settings. I went on to further my education at USC and graduated with a Master's in Science in 2013.
After graduating with my Master's I ventured into the world of tutoring and found that I truly enjoyed helping students reach their potential. In my experience, students desire to succeed in their classes but are sometimes unable to understand difficult concepts in the way their teacher explains them. The one on one format allows me to work with a student to explain difficult concepts in a way that the student can both understand and apply effectively. With experience in wide range of math and science based courses, I often am able support my students as they move through the challenges in high school and even into college courses.
With patience and clear explanations, I look forward to working with you to reach your goals!
Melissa has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 4 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Melissa is able to explain the concepts in ways that my daughter really enjoys and understands, is able to cover a lot of content each session, and is kind yet on task. Truly the best tutor we could have ever hoped for. I have seen more enjoyment by my daughter in both subjects and she looks forward to her tutor sessions.Jeffrey, 35 lessons with Melissa

Excellent ACT Tutor
Melissa was excellent. She was patient and very knowledgeable. She helped my daughter prepare for the ACT. We are waiting to hear the results but I know that she felt very confident going in to the exam. Thank you Melissa.Martha, 12 lessons with Melissa
Melissa is a great tutor. She's on time, she understands what my weaknesses are, and she helps me learn how to overcome them. I felt much more confident going into the ACT test this time around. I'm very comfortable with her and she is easy to talk to.Natalie, 4 lessons with Melissa
Melissa is so great! My daughter always comes home so excited because she finally understands the subject matter! Having Melissa as a tutor has made all the difference, Kaitlin has gone from a C to an A since tutoring began. We love Melissa!Kaitlin, 5 lessons with Melissa
Melissa has been an excellent tutor for my son in AP Physics. She is preparing him for the AP exam as well as assisting him in challenging homework problems. She responds quickly and is flexible in scheduling. She always arrives on time and is well prepared for the lesson. Would highly recommend her as a tutor!Michelle, 5 lessons with Melissa
