About Melinda

As a graduate student in oceanography with a background in biochemistry and environmental studies, I have a passion for math and science that I try to encourage in my students.

In 2009, I completed a year of teaching English as a second language in South Korea, where I worked with students at varying ages and levels. There, I learned how to focus on students’ needs and that different approaches to material often work best toward comprehension. After teaching, I tutored high school and grade school students in subjects such as chemistry, math, reading comprehension, and study skills. I always work with dedication to meet the needs of those I tutor.

During the first meeting, I will find out the goals of the student and then work on a plan together to meet those goals. I believe in finding a method of learning that fits with a student and encourage questions to enhance better understanding.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Organic Chemistry

Having earned my BS in Biochemistry, I have become proficient in organic chemistry and can help students with laboratory techniques, nomenclature, functional groups, stereo-chemistry, molecular structure, acids and bases, as well as many other topics. I continue to learn more concepts as a graduate student studying bio-geochemistry.

QuickBooks

As part of my job, I use QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 11.0 on a daily basis; as a result, I am extremely proficient. I can help students with creating sales reports, accounts receivable and payable, making deposits, reconciling bank statements, creating invoices for customers, paying sales tax, as well as much more.
