About Melissa

My name is Melissa. I am a graduate of Cornell University for my Bachelor's and recently finished a graduate program at Rice University. I have much experience in teaching, as I am a former 6th grade math teacher and have tutored students of all levels for many years.

I have helped students improve their SAT scores, as well as help them gain confidence in everyday learning. Multiple references available upon request! I look forward to speaking with you, and helping you achieve your academic/other goals.

Best,
Melissa

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.

College Counseling

I am a graduate of Cornell University. I have much experience with college counseling. I have worked with over 30 high school seniors on both SAT/ACT prep, college/university search/research, and also college application completion. I am very familiar with the structure of the common application, and have aided many students in creating unique college essays.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified as a 4-8 Generalist in Texas. I am a former 6th grade teacher. I have much experience tutoring and teaching elementary aged children.

Macintosh

I am very familiar with Macintosh programs, as I have worked on Macs for many years. I am familiar with Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, and can help familiarize others with these programs as well.

Social Studies

I majored in History at Cornell University. I am well versed in social studies, from civics to history. I am experienced in writing for social studies as well.

STAAR

I am a former 6th grade math teacher who is familiar with STAAR standards and TEKS required by the state for students to pass. Although the STAAR is a difficult test, I am confident that I can help your student succeed on the exam and reach his/her goals, whether it just be to pass the exam or to receive a commended score.

Study Skills

I am a graduate of Cornell University. I am also a former teacher. Although organization and studying can be difficult, it can be taught. I am very experienced in helping the least organized individuals become better test takers and increase their confidence while studying for different exams and assessments.

Swimming

I am a former varsity swimmer and diver for many years. I have been swimming for over 22 years, and am very comfortable with swimmers of all ages. I am patient, and have worked with many beginning/intermediate swimmers before to help them improve.

Awesome tutor and great response time!

I knew Melissa was the tutor to go with when she responded within 2 minutes. My grandchild had a great tutoring session with Melissa. Melissa did a great job connecting with my granddaughter who can sometimes be shy. Her self confidence has improved and Melissa's encouragement made my granddaughter very comfortable asking questions. I just know that my granddaughter will ace her EOC exam to
