About Melisa

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!

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.

Sign Language

I am a SODA (sibling of deaf adult). I am very fluent in ASL. In addition to communicating with my deaf sister and my hard of hearing brother-in-law, I have accumulated college credit hours with "A" in ASL. I was actively involved in my church ASL signer/interpreter ministry and have been mentored by a NIC master interpreter.
