About Melissa

I have never formally tutored outside of a classroom setting, but I have been a substitute teacher for the last fifteen years. I have a great record in the schools and the teachers request me frequently because I follow their plans and I actually teach, not just babysit.

I have won a national writing award for which I was featured in the newspaper and was entered into the National Quill and Scroll Honor Society. I was Editor-in-Chief of the Portage a high School newspaper during my senior year and News Editor my junior year. I went to a two week seminar through a scholarship to Indiana University and had intensive lessons in editing a newspaper.

In college I focused on literature and English classes. In high school I was editor of my school newspaper which entailed me proofreading all of my fellow newspaper columnists articles. I have won a national writing award and for a hobby, I love to read!

I have homeschooled all three of my children through different ages and I have been a substitute teacher with a great record for fifteen years.

I really enjoy working one on one with students and most enjoy working with students when I see they are interested in learning. I have worked a lot with special needs children and have spent a lot of time working with children through the title I program in the schools.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a substitute teacher with Lake Station Community Schools since September, 2001. Most of that time has been with elementary schools. I enjoy working with students one on one. I most enjoy working with Title I. I love to read and enjoy learning.

Reading

I have worked with elementary aged children for sixteen years as a substitute teacher. A large portion of my jobs were working with title 1 children and children who needed extra help with reading and math. I also taught my child to read when he was four. He is now eight and a very good reader.
