About Melanie

My desire to teach/tutor stems from my desire to work with children and my love of learning. A quality education is a powerful tool and is often the key that unlocks the door to a brighter and more successful future. My goal is to provide this to all of my students by addressing their unique learning styles and working alongside them to reach their full potential.

I have experience working with children in a variety of settings. I have worked as a leader of several youth programs and have assisted in the homeschooling of my five younger brothers. I have also had hands-on working with and teaching in both a third and first grade classroom as a student teaching. During this experience I was responsible for the preparation, teaching, and assessment of a variety of subject areas including elementary level Reading, Math, English and Language Arts, History, and Science.

I am a recent graduate of Summit University of Pennsylvania. I graduated December of 2015 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (PreK-4) along with highest honors. I have met all testing requirements to obtain my teacher's certificate in the state of Pennsylvania which I am in the process of acquiring. I plan to pursue certification in the state of Michigan as well once I have obtained my Pennsylvania certification.

I have tutored homeschooled students, served eight weeks as a student teacher in a 3rd grade classroom of 20 students, and another eight weeks in a 1st grade classroom of 20 students as well. During my service as a student teacher, I was responsible for the preparation of lessons, instruction of a variety of subject areas, assessment of lessons and student progress, and maintaining control and organization of the classroom.

I am flexible in my tutoring hours and am willing to work with my clients to establish a schedule and teaching plan that best fits the needs of my students and their families. I look forward to working alongside you and your child. Please feel free to contact me through WyzAnt email.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I believe that I have obtained all the training and education necessary to teach/tutor elementary students in grades PreK-4th. I have graduated with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (PreK-4) with a GPA of 3.86 along with highest honors. I have tutored homeschooled students within this age range, served eight weeks as a student teacher in a 3rd grade classroom of 20 students, and another eight weeks in a 1st grade classroom of 20 students as well. During my service as a student teacher, I was responsible for the preparation of lessons, instruction of a variety of subject areas, assessment of lessons and student progress, and maintaining control and organization of the classroom. I have passed all necessary requirements to obtain my teaching certification in the state of Pennsylvania and am only waiting for my application to be approved. I plan to pursue my certification in Michigan as well. Although my higher education was not specifically focused towards students within 5th and 6th grade, I believe that I have the skills to tutor students within this range. I am familiar with the academic material for this age and believe that I would be able to provide effective and efficient instruction concerning such material.
