Bio

Hi, I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a small child. Growing up with parents who were both teachers; school, studying, and high expectations were and are my mantra!! I received my Bachelors Degree in Education with a minor in music and my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I am currently working on my PHD in Curriculum and Instruction.
I started teaching as soon as I graduated and have been teaching ever since!! Because I have been able to work with students from ages preschool...

Hi, I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a small child. Growing up with parents who were both teachers; school, studying, and high expectations were and are my mantra!! I received my Bachelors Degree in Education with a minor in music and my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I am currently working on my PHD in Curriculum and Instruction.
I started teaching as soon as I graduated and have been teaching ever since!! Because I have been able to work with students from ages preschool through college in every subject area, I am able to fine-tune my craft!! Not only have I taught every grade - preschool to high school seniors - I have tutored children from the age of three to students working on their graduate degrees. I aspire to be the best!! I strive to inspire my students to do the same!! Education is the pathway to your future,and I promise to bring my knowledge and expertise to every single tutoring session!!
I do not meet in individual homes. After tutoring hundreds of students, I have found libraries to be the best setting. The study rooms are quiet and offer the best "study" environment so that my students are able to be successful in their studies.

I would highly recommend Melanie!

My son has enjoyed working with Melanie O. and looks forward to his tutor sessions. He's only had three sessions and I can already see that his confidence level has increased with regards to taking his next ACT test.

Did a Wonderful Job

Melanie did a great job working with my son. He really enjoyed their time together. He felt better prepared to take all phases of the ACT after working with her. We would use her again and recommend her to others.
