About Melinda


Bio

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...

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.

Extremely helpful, effective, and nice!

Our daughter has been able to bring her test grades up by 10 to 15 points. She used to barely get a C or low B on exams, but after getting help from Melinda, her last one was 102%! In addition, her homework assignments get almost perfect scores. Melinda does an excellent job explaining difficult concepts. Our daughter says she is simply a better teacher than the one she has at school. Our daughter can do the math, but now she understands how to apply her basic skills to the new concepts of chemistry. We are very pleased! What's more, Melinda is very approachable and very patient. It's a perfect match for our daughter! Finally, our daughter is not fearful of chemistry class and now knows she can get top grade that she really wants!

Great tutor.

My daughter's test performance was slipping in Math. Melinda has been reviewing problem areas and I am so pleased. She went into this weeks test confident and came out with an A! She was the only person in the pre-algebra class to answer the bonus question correctly. She got 96% which has put her back on the High Honor role. Thank you so much Melinda. See you on December 10th - Happy Thanksgiving.

Very Consistent and Flexible

Melinda has been tutoring my son in numerous subjects all year and she has been very punctual, patient and thorough. She has been very flexible with non scheduled days and tries to accommodate all our needs. My son has benefited greatly having Melinda as a tutor and I strongly recommend her services to anyone.
