About Melissa

I have been helping those around me understand math since I was in 6th grade. Adapting the material to make sense to others is something I am passionate about! Finding ways for math to 'click' for anyone at any math level is something that I find extremely rewarding!

In the six years since graduating from college, I have spent 2 years working with elementary children ages 5-11 and 4 years as an instructor who helped college students who struggle with math succeed in college algebra and statistics.

During college and since I have done tutoring on the side. I have tutored college students through college algebra and calculus as well as helped elementary, middle, and high school students with topics from addition/subtraction to geometry to cryptology. I truly believe that math concept explanations can be catered to suit any individual's learning style and that math can become natural and intuitive for anyone! After students gain a thorough understanding of arithmetic and the basics of algebra, the math classes beyond that can be conquered with reasonable work and effort. Math doesn't have to be overwhelming - I will do my best to make complicated concepts understandable!

Absolutely amazing!

Melissa truly did an amazing job teaching our daughter algebra and geometry in a way she could understand. In just a few sessions, she understood the principles her geometry teacher hadn't been able to teach her all year! We highly recommend Melissa,and would definitely use her again!
