About Melissa

I have taught English and social studies in public and private school over the last 12 years. I don't have a lot of experience tutoring, but I really love the idea of being able to devote my attention and expertise to helping a single or small group of students to reach their academic goals.

I will admit to being a little bit of a nerd/geek, but this tends to help me relate easier to my students and they humor me quite a bit. I like trying to make learning fun and interesting, but also to help it fit with real life. I have been working since I was 17 and I have been to college a few times, so I know what it's like out there.

I have a BA and Master's in English, and honestly, I just love reading, writing, and our language. I have taught ELA in 9th-12th grade classes over the last 12 years and I enjoy inspiring others to read and write. I've participated in many trainings to improve vocabulary acquisition, reading comprehension and analysis, and writing skills.

My minor is in social studies and I have taught predominately US history with a smattering of world history and economics. I really enjoy learning/teaching about the foundations of our country and others as well as helping students develop a love of history. History is so much more than dry dates and people!

If you are interested in meeting to see if we'd be a good match, please contact me.
