About Melissa

I have been tutoring for 4 years now, and I truly enjoy the challenge of improving a student's academic life. I use innovative and original material, and strive to keep students engaged in lessons. It is rewarding when I see results, and students are thrilled as well. Whether it's teaching a new concept, or reinforcing old ones, I always put the students' needs first. I include them in all aspects of the lessons, and encourage participation in decisions regarding their progress. I am deeply aware of the diverse and cultural backgrounds of students, and background is extremely important to learning. I am constantly making the effort to teach higher order thinking skills, and critical consciousness. I look forward to passing on my knowledge and love for learning to your children.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught Elementary school Reading, English/Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, Science, and Geography from grades 1 through 6 at Killips Elementary School in Flagstaff, Arizona while I was in the Master's program at Northern Arizona University. I also served as an Instructional Aide for McKinleyville Middle School (6-8) in northern California and worked with sixth graders there.
