About Melissa

My name is Melissa S. and I am currently a special education teacher. I have had experience working with students at all grade levels K-12, which makes me an excellent resource for you! I am currently a special education teacher in a communication development program working with students with emotional/behavioral complications and students on the autsim spectrum at the Kindergarten-3rd grade level. I love working with my students to reach their full potential and to bring awareness to their strengths that they have.

What makes me an outstanding math tutor is my ability to adapt material into a manner that is comprehendible to my learners. I also include manipulatives and hands on strategies that will aide into developing the fundamental math skills needed.

I have a middle school endorsement specifically in Reading/Language Arts that qualify me to teach grades K-8 in those content areas alone on top of my qualifications to teach all other core subjects as well.

What makes me an excellent elementary education tutor is the amount of experience I have had working in the core content areas that are taught during the elementary years. I have had experience in the past tutoring students that have fallen behind in school due to terminal illness, but still wanted to have the opportunity to continue their education, tutoring students for enrichment services, and tutoring students that needed to build their confidence in a certain content area.

I am a very patient individual that loves to have fun while learning/teaching! As a special educator, I am always used to the need to adapt and be flexible to the needs of all of my learners. I am capable of modifying curriculum into a way that is comprehensive to all types of learners while still meeting the core state standards that are necessary. I am motivated by seeing the success in my students. Not only do I love teaching, but I love that I get the opportunity to also learn from my students/learners as well.

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.
