Hello! My name is Ms. Melanie and I am here to help! One of my greatest joys is helping my students succeed! I look forward to helping you, whether you are looking for basic Math help or need an advanced test prep session.

My education background includes graduating with honors from McKendree University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Additionally, I earned a certification in Secondary Education, a minor in Spanish, and a Middle School endorsement from McKendree. In addition, I graduated summa cum laude from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a Master of Science in Educational Administration.

I have over five years of experience as a full-time teacher, teaching subjects including Pre-Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Spanish and everything in between!

My math teaching experience includes teaching all levels of Mathematics from Pre-Algebra to Algebra 5-6 (junior level) to Trigonometry / Pre-Calculus. My math teaching experience ranges from teaching at the Middle School through High School levels.

Additionally, I have successfully taught all levels of Spanish, from Middle School Spanish to Spanish 1 to Spanish 4 (sometimes called Spanish 7/8) at the high school level.

In addition, I have over seven years of experience as a part-time teacher, teaching high school through adult learners how to pass the four sections of the GED test. The four sections of the GED: Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies can be difficult to pass! However, I have unlocked some little known secrets to pass this test and I am happy to share those with you!

I also have several years experience as a tutor, helping students improve their skills in whatever subject they need help in, whether Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies or Test Prep.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or to schedule a tutoring appointment.

I have spent the last 7 years studying the different parts of the GED test in order to show my students how to pass their GED test. I have studied and taught all 4 areas of the GED test: Math (my specialty!) and Language Arts, Science and Social Studies (I’m good at teaching these too!) If your state accepts the HiSET, I have tips on how to pass that too! (Illinois, for example, is one of the states that allows the HiSET test in place of the GED test.) I can even give you tips on computer & calculator skills, what they will allow in the testing area, and how to schedule your test!
