My name is Melissa and I am currently a middle school reading teacher. I created, developed and teach a brand new curriculum. Last year my students showed an average of 20% growth. I have about 80 students with a wide array of strengths, weaknesses, and needs.
Prior to this job, I worked in New York as a reading specialist in two elementary schools. I had students ranging from kindergarten through fifth grade, with a wide range of reading needs. While teaching in New York, I tutored a fifth grade boy in reading and writing. I worked with him for several months and his reading level increased by two levels. More recently, I am working with a 7th grade student who has learning and developmental disabilities. We are making some great progress towards strengthening his reading foundations, phonics, and comprehension.
I am available weekday afternoons, Tuesday-Friday, and can be Saturday afternoons. I can be very flexible with time and can offer same day cancellation.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping your child achieve success. My name is Melissa and I am currently a middle school reading teacher.

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.
