About Melissa

My name is Melissa and I am currently a chemistry graduate student at Tufts University. I have a bachelor's of science degree in chemistry. I did undergraduate research in analytical chemistry for three years at UMass Boston. After completing my undergraduate education I worked in a biochemistry lab at Tufts University Medical School as a post-bac researcher. That same year I volunteered to tutor a high school student in chemistry and the experience proved to be beneficial for him and rewarding for myself.

The key to success in chemistry is having an open mind and a willingness to learn. The subject can be challenging and at times discouraging but with the right motivation and a knowledgeable person on your side chemistry can be lots of fun.

I like designing the curriculum to suit the student’s needs. I am patient and will work at the student’s pace and not rush him/her along. I find that practice makes perfect, therefore, there will be lots of problem solving practice. These are tools to not only monitor the student’s progress but to build his/her confidence in the subject matter.

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.

Chemistry

I have a Master's degree in chemistry and while in grad school I worked as a teaching assistant for (college-level) general chemistry lab and recitation courses. I also have experience tutoring high school students with varying levels of chemistry knowledge. I am patient and will cater all teaching materials to a student's specific needs and learning style.

Very prepared and patient tutor!

Melissa helped me gain a deeper understanding of a number of concepts in my graduate level medical chemistry course. She prepared packets filled with helpful practice problems and helped me work through them in a very efficient and conceptual manor.
