About Melissa

My focus is on finding the strategies that help your child be successful. Working with my own child that has academic challenges as well as my preschool students, I recognize that all children can learn when supportive opportunities are given. I am a certified teacher with an Elementary/Early Childhood Degree. My graduate coursework is in Learning Disabilities/Early Childhood. I understand the importance of having a solid foundation to build skills upon, and I work to find that foundation in students.

I am available to tutor some evenings and weekends, with the tutoring sessions to be held at the local libraries (Wayland, Middleville or Hastings). I do require a 24-hour cancellation notice.

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 possess a teaching certificate for elementary grades. I also have been a tutor through Hastings Area Schools with their Reading Improvement Program. I am skilled at assessing students to determine their level and needs for instruction.

Handwriting

I use the Handwriting without Tears program in my classroom. I work closely with our OT to assist students in my classroom to develop the necessary fine motor skills needed for handwriting.
