About Melissa

I am a graduate student at Valparaiso University where I am studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling. During my undergraduate career I hosted tutoring sessions for freshman psychology majors and aided them in succeeding in class.

The reason I would like to be a tutor is because of my love of learning. I have not always loved learning, however, and had to tutor myself when I was younger. I desire to have the same impact on my students as my tutor had on me. My aim of each session would be to leave students more confident than they felt entering each session. I welcome any and all questions during the session and even afterwards.

As an undergraduate student, I majored in Psychology and double minored in Biology and Neuroscience. During this time I took courses varying from genetics to physiological psychology.

I am a creative and passionate individual with a love of learning. I would love the opportunity to help inspire a love of learning in students as well.

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.

Public Speaking

I have taken a public speaking course during my undergraduate program and implemented those skills during several presentations. I have conducted research presentations in front of respected staff in the psychology field. My leadership experiences, including being chapter president of my sorority, allowed me to practice speaking in front of 100 women each week and to speak in front of over 500 of my peers.
