About Melanie

Hello,

I have taught ages 11/2 years old up to high school and college level students as well as adults. I love to teach all ages because I teach the child, teen or adult according to their level of understanding. I am a people person. I have tutored and taught full lessons and also teach at a community college and in adult education. I taught middle and high school Spanish in private school, and long term subbed in the Troy and Rochester Districts.

My specialties are Spanish, English writing, reading, grammar and novel discussions to understand plot, setting, etc. My English as a Second Language students have come from all over the world, including but not limited to, Costa Rica, Mexico, Germany, China, Brazil and South Korea. I also teach and tutor Political Science, Sociology, History, Government and Civics. My Michigan Professional Certificate is in Spanish, grades 6-12, and my certification minor is in Political Science through Wayne State University. I have a Masters in Teaching and have earned 27 of my 33 credits in a Master's Program in Spanish. I finish this Fall, 2015 at Wayne State University. I could tutor elementary math, science, English, Social Studies and Spanish too. We have a great time and learn alot!! I give practice worksheets if needed and practice quizzes and tests if needed.

Love the students of all ages, have fun, teach using memory games, song, riddles, rhymes, 3 x 5 cards, practice quizzes and tests, worksheets, my own book that I have written for Perfecting the Preterite and the Imperfect in Spanish and my CD, Children's Spanish Made Easy Through Song.

I also work with students who have learning challenges like ADD and dyslexia. I have done this with family members and also with my own students.

We learn, laugh, have fun and discuss the frustrations you have learning the subject matter and make a plan for overcoming those challenges. Long retention rate with students-5 years being the longest.

Want to learn the way you need to learn? I can help you do that. Students have over 12 different types of intelligences and we can identify your's and set up a plan so you can learn and get the grades you need to be successful in the classroom and in life!!
