About Melissa


Bio

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...

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.

Knowledgeable and kind tutor

Melissa helped me on my son's ACT English and Reading. She was very helpful, kind, and showed things to my son that he thought were new, reminding, and would help him for the test. Highly recommend.

She was very helpful with my homework. We reviewed together on English Writing topic for me to study & prepare for upcoming test. Looking forward for next session

Best ACT tutor

Melissa I would recommend to everyone in need of help on ACT English and Reading. I believe I retained more information from one 2 hour session reviewing, than I did from a general ACT prep class (which I have taken twice). She was very knowledgeable on what to help me on, and was very patient. I definitely feel more comfortable taking the ACT. Again, really appreciated her help!!
