About Melanie

As a social worker I love to help others realize their potential and this philosophy is truly what drives me to tutor others.

I've tutored fellow students during my time as both an undergraduate and graduate student. I've also worked with teens and children through volunteer work and a career as a child welfare specialist. I feel confident that I can I can help others learn by building upon their strengths.

My passion is working with people and I hold a Master of Social Work degree. I currently provide individual and group counseling and have a history of working with a variety of populations. Sociology and psychology are passions of mine and I would love to assist anyone in their studies in these subjects.

In addition to tutoring, I've also worked as a freelance editor and would be happy to assist in proofreading. I have a history as a competitive debater and I used to teach debate and public speaking to high school students at a summer camp. Vocabulary and public speaking are subjects I enjoy teaching others.

I live in the Springfield, IL, area and would be willing to travel within a 20-mile radius. However, I would prefer to conduct my tutoring sessions online.

I look forward to working with you to help you reach your educational goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have a master's degree in social work and utilize my English and writing skills everyday in my job. I prepare professional reports for my employer and assist interns with research and proper writing skills. I have tutored fellow students in this subject throughout my college career.

Public Speaking

I was a debater at the high school and college levels. I used to teach debate and public speaking at a summer camp for high school students. Currently, I give regular presentations in my community as part of my work duties.

Writing

I have a history of tutoring other students during my time as an undergraduate and graduate student. I like to conduct my tutoring sessions by first discussing the assignment then brainstorming ideas for content and structure. I've found that people are better writers when they have a plan. I would like to guide others through this process.
