About Melissa

To whom it may concern,
I love working with students. It is my pleasure to help students succeed in reading, writing and critical interpretation. I have eighteen years of experience teaching English at the high school level (all grades and ranges from Special Education to AP English). I have taught Adult Education classes, ESL classes and SAT prep.

I enjoy working with students on research, thesis development, literary analysis and the writing process. In addition, I will help students submit their writing for publication.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in Education from the University of Hartford. Presently, I teach high school English in Connecticut.

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.

Adobe InDesign

I have been the advisor of a student newspaper/publication for over 15 years. I have taught hundreds of students how to layout a newspaper using InDesign. I also taught journalism for over 10 years. My curriculum included lessons for InDesign proficiency.

English

I have been teaching English at the secondary level for over twenty years. I have taught all levels including remedial and Advanced Placement courses. I have also taught adult education, SAT, GED and alternative learning classes.

Proofreading

I am an English teacher. I have taught for over 21 years at the high school level. I am listed as an editor on a published book. I have tutored and taught over 1000 students. I am consistently asked to proofread student work and peers' writing.

SAT Reading

Presently, I teach SAT reading skills to my high school students. Previously, I taught the SAT Preparation course to students. I am familiar with many test-taking strategies.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills in several capacities: my present job as a high school English teacher, my position as an alternative education teacher, and my work preparing GED and SAT students for testing.

Video Production

I taught broadcast journalism and journalism for over ten years. I am extremely adept at teaching video production on iMovie. I am able to teach all facets of video production including pre-production (scripting, storyboarding), production (filming, camera styles/techniques), and post-production (editing).
