About Melisa


Bio

I am currently a Licensed Medical Lab Scientist with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of South Florida. I taught Chemistry to grades 10-12 students for 3 years with the School District of Hillsborough County. I pride myself of being the youngest teacher in the Science Department at that time with competitive achievement records compared to my fellow veteran counterparts. Every year, 90% of my students passed their rigorous Chemistry finals with a C or...

I am currently a Licensed Medical Lab Scientist with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of South Florida. I taught Chemistry to grades 10-12 students for 3 years with the School District of Hillsborough County. I pride myself of being the youngest teacher in the Science Department at that time with competitive achievement records compared to my fellow veteran counterparts. Every year, 90% of my students passed their rigorous Chemistry finals with a C or better even though the majority had personal learning obstacles with no interest in Chemistry. Before teaching in the school district, I tutored middle, high school, and college students for 2 years. Many students improved their grades and retained knowledge because of my effective teaching style.

I love tutoring because it provides the opportunity to give a student the one-on-one attention needed for the success of that student. I find it so rewarding when the light bulbs of my students turn on and stay on. I celebrate with them when they regain their self confidence and the belief that they can do anything if they are committed to doing the work. I had to overcome great obstacles to become a first-generation college graduate despite my under-privileged background! If I can do it, then so can you! It takes a lot of hard work and support to do well. I am willing to be part of your support system when given the opportunity.

I specialize in K-12 Reading, Math, Science especially Chemistry, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry & SAT prep! I look forward to being a part of your success testimony!

Very Knowledgeable, Patient, and Knew How to Inspire Her to Feel Successful

Helped my daughter learn chemistry for high school. Melisa helped her understand many of the concepts. We plan to have Melissa tutor again soon. Thank you.

Judy, 2 lessons with Melisa

Professional and patient most of all encouraging, knowledgable

Alena was taught how to solve her math problems that she continued to struggle with in the class room. Alena was evaluated properly and then taught strategies to make her understand what she was doing wrong and then right. I am thankful to have found such a wonderful tutor. She is amazing.

Natasha, 1 lesson with Melisa

Excellent tutor

My daughter has struggled in grasping the concepts of algebra but Melisa has really made a huge difference and she is now pulling an A in her advanced math class.

The Best!!

If I could describe Melisa in one word it would be Exceptional. It takes pure talent and passion to work with kids. She provided a very comfortable environment for my niece. She over exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to see how my niece sign language improves.

MARIE, 4 lessons with Melisa

Could gauge quickly where his problems were

I'm glad she took the time to assess and realize his strengths and weaknesses, and I'm glad she was not afraid to tell me how much he was trying to sneak a look a his phone.

Elizabeth, 15 lessons with Melisa

She has been nothing short of Amazing.

We're new to the area and to ensure my son didn't fall behind I hired Melisa. She has been nothing short of Amazing. My son enjoys his sessions with her. Thank you Melisa.

Nikisha, 25 lessons with Melisa

Works excellent with my son.

Melisa has helped my son develop his math skills, she works really well with him and makes sure he understands the content before moving on.

Spencer, 10 lessons with Melisa

Friendly and competent tutor

Melisa went directly to the area in which I needed instruction, she made sure I understood each point before moving on, her explanations were effective, that is I readily comprehended what she explained. She treated me most respectfully, important to a person of my age (86). I think we had excellent rapport and I would really like to know her better; there may be other areas of computer work that I will turn to her for help. I am confident that I will be able to progress well with the instruction she provided.
