I have over fifteen years of experience teaching and tutoring students from middle school through graduate school. Whether you're trying to achieve top-notch test scores, sharpen your writing and presentation skills, or simply stay on top of your school work, helping you reach your goal is my passion!

My approach to tutoring is informed by research on growth mindset and Universal Design for Learning; I believe learning should be a positive experience that builds resilience and draws on personal strengths and interests. These are principles I have applied as a teacher, professional development specialist, teacher mentor, and parent.

My personal passion for education, especially in language arts, is backed by real-world skill and experience. I'm a published writer who uses my craft to advocate for students and education reform, and I've presented at various local and national education conferences. Additionally, I am bilingual (English and Spanish), and scored in the 99th percentile on GRE Verbal Reasoning.
I look forward to getting to know you and helping you reach your goals! Please reach out to schedule your first session :)

Great experience

Melissa is helping my daughter prepare for the SAT. Daughter reports that she likes Melissa a lot and the tutoring is helping! Melissa is a also very flexible with rescheduling as needed due to last minute changes in daughter's school and work schedule.

Great teacher

I had my first tutoring session with Melissa today. She is very knowledgable, patient, courteous and professional. We covered a great deal of content. Happy to have run into her name on this app, and I recommend Melissa to anyone who wants to learn Spanish.

Tolga, 1 lesson with Melissa

Very knowledgable and patient tutor

I looked on Wyzant for a tutor to help with college application essays for my high school senior and what a treasure I found in Melissa! She is very professional, courteous, and gives excellent feedback. She pointed my son in the right direction for writing a compelling essay and her skills are beyond superior in editing and helping the writer think deeper to construct sentences in the best possible way. She is an all-around excellent tutor!!
