About Melissa

Hello! Thank you for considering me as your tutor! I am in my fifth year of teaching! This is my second year teaching third grade! I previously taught kindergarten for three years. I also have two years of tutoring experience tutoring students in grades K-6. I am currently earning my Master's degree in Reading and plan to graduate in December 2016!

Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and spending time outside! I don't have any kids yet, but I do have a dog (see profile picture). I love working with children! My favorite part about teaching and tutoring is seeing the progress my students make with each lesson that is taught. I would love the opportunity to tutor your child!
