About Melissa

I graduated from Union College, where I completed a double major in Biology and Psychology. During college, I tutored students through the Kenny Community Center. I tutored students in Chemistry, Biology, Math (Algebra, Geometry and Trig) as well as helped numerous students prepare for their SATs. Additionally, I have worked with middle school and high school students who were enrolled in Union College's Step program.

After graduation, I worked full-time at an alternative school where I tutored middle school and high school students in all subjects. I also have worked for a variety of tutoring agencies within the Boston area.

When working with students, I believe that it is very important to first talk to them about their history in the subject, what they believe is their biggest struggle as well as work with them to discover how they learn best. In addition to working with students on various subjects, I also work with them to improve their executive functioning skill.

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 currently work at an alternative school where I tutor students full time in all subjects. Additionally, while I was in college, I participated in several programs geared towards educating elementary and middle school students (by helping them improve their math and reading skills).
