About Melissa

I am certified to teach social studies and English language arts, and I am currently in the process of completing my Master's degree in middle childhood education. I have a political science degree from the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and I have experience working with students from kindergarten through high school.
As a teacher, it sometimes frustrates me that I am not able to give one-on-one attention to those students that need the extra help. This is why tutoring is something that I enjoy very much. Not only do I streamline my creativity into making learning fun, but I am able to tailor this learning directly to the interests of the student I am working with.
I have a strong background in reading instruction, as I am currently in the process of completing a K-12 reading endorsement. Also, I have a passion for teaching social studies, and I am able to make these subjects appeal to even the most disinterested learners.

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.

Political Science

I received a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 2011, where I earned a 3.89 GPA upon completion. I have taken political science courses at the graduate level in addition to my teaching courses. I have an extensive knowledge of political science, and I have also completed internships in the field.

Religion

I have taken religion courses as a part of my studies. I also have experience teaching religion as a part of social studies curriculum at the secondary level. I am certified to teach social studies at the secondary level in Michigan and at the middle grades level in Ohio. I have a very deep understanding of the major world religions as well as those lesser-known religions and their impact on culture.

Social Studies

I am certified to teach social studies at the secondary level in Michigan and at the middle grades level in Ohio. I have a bachelor's degree in political science, and I have taken a large number of history, economics, political science, geography, and philosophy, religion, and law courses at both the undergraduate and the graduate level. I am very knowledgeable in this area of study.
