About Melissa

I'm currently an Academic Director at an elementary school in Chicago with a Master's Degree and seven years' teaching experience. In 2012, my school had the top ten gains in CPS and earned a visit by Rahm Emanuel. In 2013, 95% of my students met or exceeded their targets on the NWEA assessment. I have a wealth of experience developing rigorous instruction that aligns to Common Core standards. This past summer, I studied mathematics instruction in Japan and developed a school-wide plan to implement best practices in teaching and learning as it relates to CCSS. I'm also in charge of developing curriculum for both academic interventions and after school academic support for the 2015-2016 school year.

While I can develop an effective reading or math curriculum for grades K-8, I have specific experience successfully preparing students in benchmark grades to take the PARRC and NWEA assessments.

If you child needs support, please reach out. We will work together to make sure their year is successful!

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.
