Hi, I'm Melissa! I have been teaching high school math in D49 for three years. Before that, I worked in at an elementary school in D2 doing math intervention. I love helping struggling learners! I have always loved tutoring, I started helping at an elementary school when I was in high school and I was hooked. From there I have tutored elementary school through college students. In college I worked in an elementary school and loved seeing the different ways teachers showed material and seeing the students learn and improve their math skills and confidence throughout the year. Now I get to teach high school students! I mainly teach Pre-Algebra and Geometry content.
I love teaching struggling learners! There is nothing better than seeing a student gain confidence in something they once thought was impossible to learn. I like to focus on foundational skills and "gaps" in knowledge along with current content so students are more prepared to continue to master material going forward. I also like to focus on understanding content instead of just memorizing steps, so students can reason through problems even when they forget the algorithm. I like to do activities instead of just practicing problems on a worksheet over and over. I tutor most math topics: Elementary level, middle school, pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and test prep.
I am here whether you want to catch up on math from last year, or get ahead for next year, we can work together so all students can see success! Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.
