Bio

My original training was at Colorado School of Mines with a Major (Bachelor's and Master's degree) in Chemical Engineering and Minor in Biological Engineering Life Sciences. I interned at National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) while completing my thesis-based masters degree. I graduated with high honors but I found that I thoroughly enjoyed teaching students in my recitation-style workshops (references upon request), so I joined Teach for America.

My original training was at Colorado School of Mines with a Major (Bachelor's and Master's degree) in Chemical Engineering and Minor in Biological Engineering Life Sciences. I interned at National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) while completing my thesis-based masters degree. I graduated with high honors but I found that I thoroughly enjoyed teaching students in my recitation-style workshops (references upon request), so I joined Teach for America.

I have taught as a licensed secondary science teacher at two high schools for the following courses: Chemistry (regular, honors, and AP), Physics (regular, AP C and AP B), Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Earth Science. Over the Summer, I teach for outreach programs and pre-colligate health programs ACT Math, ACT science, SAT math, precalculus, calculus, and Algebra.

I was a licensed science teacher (will expire by end of 2014 and will NOT be renewed as I will be a Medical Student). I have a BS/MS chemical engineering and bioengineering with a GPA of 3.8. My ACT math, SAT math, ACT science, and SAT II Chemistry scores are: 36, 800, 35, and 780, respectively. I was the youngest general tutor at Colorado School of Mines (General tutors cover all of freshman and some sophomore courses including: Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Chemistry I and II, Biology I and II, and Calculus based Physics I and II, Statics). I have 10 years of tutoring experience.

I am a medical student and my time will be very valuable, therefore I will only tutor within 1 mile radius.

Algebra 1

I'm a Chemical Engineer who graduated with high honors. Algebra 1 is the foundation to most math and I am very familiar teaching this to students online. My student population for Algebra I (prior to college) ranges between 8 years old - 18 years old. As a chemistry teacher, I often have to review algebra with my students.

My background major is chemical engineering, graduated with high honors. I have been tutoring at the college campus for 3 years, tutor privately online for 6 years, and am currently teaching chemistry and AP chemistry. My tutoring style is using hints, facts, and questions to guide student's thinking. Please do NOT expect me to provide answers directly as that only hinder's a learning process. Please only contact me if you interested in learning rather than ONLY needing help completing an assignment as I will not be doing any problems for you. I may make up an example problem to help you but I refuse to do your homework as I am also a high school teacher.

Great tutor! Excellent fit for my son.

Mellisa was very prompt in responding to our tutor request. Despite being quite busy, she was able to fit us in the next evening. She was patient and very thorough and exactly what my son needed. He will definitely be continuing tutoring sessions for AP chemistry with Mellisa as needed as he progresses through the school year. Update: After only 2 sessions with Mellisa he was the only student to score 100% on the most recent test and actually broke the curve!!

Just the Help We Needed

My son has ADHD and has gaps in the information presented in his classes. Mellisa patiently works with him for a few hours each chapter to help him fill those gaps. We have seen his test grades go from D's to A's with just a little help from her. Mellisa is responsive, flexible, patient, prompt and communicative so I can easily understand what she has worked on each session. I feel lucky to have found her!

Very Knowledgeable

Very efficient, easy to contact. I got in touch with her one weekend and had a tutoring session set up two days later. Very knowledgeable about subjects and very clear speech.
