About Melissa

Hello,

I am Melissa, and I would be a great match for any student, especially struggling learners.

I graduated from Lesley University with a 4.0 GPA and a Masters in Special Education. My undergraduate degree is in Human Biology; I worked for some time as a Junior Research Scientist. I am currently employed as a Special Education Science Teacher and Tutor at a Vocational High School.

I have previous experience in tutoring students who were home on medical leave. I have had the opportunity to tutor everything from Automotive Technology to Physics! I also have experience with preparing students for MCAS, GED and the SAT.

If your student needs support in more than one area, I am the tutor for you! I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

I then supported them in obtaining and maintaining paid employment. On Fridays, I taught a career development curriculum which included; the job search process, resume writing, employability skills, people skills, interview skills, self advocacy skills and personal hygiene.
