About MELANIE

I graduated from the Master's College in 2010 and most recently was working as an office assistant for a food broker, placing orders, filing, handling customer service, and using Microsoft Office and Outlook as well as managing a calendar. I currently also do some freelance work as a proofreader/editor for a young man in a graduate program writing 20-24 page papers. My editing and proofreading is done from home via email and sometimes corresponding on the phone. I type around 85 WPM (was recently tested) and enjoy working on the computer, helping others, and interacting with people of all ages. I also recently finished a bookkeeping class that will help me in future accounting opportunities. I also do calligraphy and stamping.

I have tutored children in English, grammar, geography, and even taught piano lessons in the past. I love proofreading and editing to help people improve in their writing and grammar skills!

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.

Bible Studies

I have done Bible Studies in the past with various curriculum and go through a series myself in my own devotions. I also am skilled in the Bible, having attended a Christian college. I grew up in the church, and also wrote extensive research papers in college on that particular subject matter. I feel like I can help you grow in your study of the Bible because of my first-hand experiences and study!

English

English has always come naturally to me. I have tutored people in English and Language Arts. I also passed various college entrance exams with flying colors in that area. I can help someone read, write, and speak English properly.

Grammar

I have always excelled in grammar and am a stickler for the proper use of it. I have tutored a high school girl in Grammar and Language Arts. I also passed my CBEST and CSET language arts and grammar portions, and scored high on that portion of the SAT.

Microsoft Excel

I have taken classes in Microsoft Excel in order to be better versed on this program. In my last job, I used this program extensively to create new item forms, monitor accounting on spreadsheets, and create pictures and graphs. I also know how to create and move formulas.

Microsoft Outlook

At my last job, the email we used was Outlook. I used Outlook to manage the calendar, to compose emails, and to file already read emails. I have also used Outlook to flag items for review at a later date and to stay up to date with important emails.

Microsoft Publisher

I use Publisher to create cards and flyers for people. I also was group leader in a class in college to create something using Publisher. I have also done a webinar on how to use Publisher for a college project.

Microsoft Word

I have taken classes on Microsoft Word in college. I have used Word extensively to write research papers, create flyers, and edit papers for others. I am familiar with Versions 2007 and 2010 and have also taught others how to use the program.

Proofreading

I currently proofread and edit a graduate student's papers, which are 20-25 pages long. I have helped my friend in college by reviewing her papers before she turns them in to the professor. In high school, I helped friends write well in their grammar and English assignments as well as proofread some of their assignments.

Vocabulary

I soared in vocabulary in school and often know the meanings of words that other people do not understand. I am a stickler for grammar and misspellings bother me until they are corrected. I have helped friends and colleagues create well-written documents.

Writing

I currently edit and proofread a graduate student's papers and have previously helped my friends in high school and college edit their projects and papers.
