About Melissa

I have always enjoyed teaching people new things. I always try to find effective ways to explain a concept to someone. Many of my students feel like English should be easy because it's our language, but it is very challenging. I like to help students understand the language and the writing process.

My goal is to help students become critical readers and effective writers. I break down concepts, so my students can learn at their own pace. I really enjoy working one on one with students because I feel students can get the individualized help they need. I received my master's in differentiation, so I can design lessons to help any type of learner.

I received my undergraduate degree in English and Secondary Education. As an undergrad, I was a writing center tutor. I assisted college students with papers in all content areas. I have been teaching high school English for seven years. Within those seven years I have taught freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. I have taught honors, college prep, and REI courses. I have also taught an ACT prep study hall and a prep course for five years.

Please contact me for additional information. I am available to tutor in a public place any week day after 4:30pm. I am also available on Saturday mornings. I look forward to helping you become a stronger learner. Thank you for reading my bio and considering me for your tutoring needs.
