About Melissa

I am an elementary special education teacher that has been in the profession for the past 10 years. I have experience providing individualized instruction in the areas of math, writing, reading comprehension, reading fluency, and reading basic skills. My current degrees include a B.S. in Elementary Education with a double major in Science and Language Arts. I also have an M.Ed. in Special Education with an endorsement in Learning Disabilities.

I enjoy working with children, and watching them grow. I am patient and strive to teach the way each individual child learns.

I have a B.S. in Elementary Education, which allows me to teach in all content areas up to 5th grade. I have experience working with multiple math programs that are aligned with the common core. I am familiar with curriculum materials that are abstract as well as concrete, to meet the needs of your child.

I have been a special education teacher for 10 years, and I have also taught as an interventionist. I am very experienced with various research-based strategies to help your child grow in reading comprehension and reading fluency.

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.

Phonics

I am qualified to work with children struggling with learning their phonics. For the last 10 years, I have worked with special education students. I have also worked as an interventionist primarily working in the area of reading. Many intervention groups I run when working on phonics tie into using a book to help immerse them into language. However, if this method isn't the best approach, I am familiar with different research-based strategies that provide a more direct approach to learning letters and how they interact to form words.

Special Needs

I am qualified to work with children with special needs. I am currently an elementary special education teacher. I have taught children with special needs for the past 10 years. I currently hold a M.Ed. in Special Education with a Learning Disabilities Endorsement. In addition to my schooling, I have attended numerous professional development sessions that have focused on specific research-based strategies such as PECS, AARI, guided reading plus (both the Linda Dorn and Jan Richardson models), as well as sessions focusing on behavioral strategies. I have experience working with children that have a learning disability, cognitive impairment, attention deficit, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
