About Melissa


Bio

Hello! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Carleton College and completed most of the coursework for a Master’s degree in Biology from the University of Nebraska-Kearney. My PRAXIS Core Academic Skills - Math score was a 200 (the highest possible), and I scored above the 85th percentile for PRAXIS Biology: Content Knowledge. I have taught in the classroom or have tutored students in Middle School Math through Pre-calculus (including Common Core), high school and college Statistics,...

Hello! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Carleton College and completed most of the coursework for a Master’s degree in Biology from the University of Nebraska-Kearney. My PRAXIS Core Academic Skills - Math score was a 200 (the highest possible), and I scored above the 85th percentile for PRAXIS Biology: Content Knowledge. I have taught in the classroom or have tutored students in Middle School Math through Pre-calculus (including Common Core), high school and college Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Earth/Space Science, Physical Science, and Environmental Science.

As we all know, however, test scores and numbers do not define a person’s success. What you really need to know about me is that I spent 6 years teaching middle school and high school math and science at a small boarding school for students with AD/HD and other LDs including ASD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. I understand the struggles these students have had in traditional classroom settings and I excel at building confidence and making connections. I have tutored several students in various high school and college math classes. They have all showed significant improvement in grades and content knowledge, but more importantly, they regained confidence in their own academic abilities.

Amazing Tutor!!

Melissa has been very helpful with teaching me geometry. She has an extremely nice personality and a great teaching style. She is very patient and she takes the time to help me when I don't understand a concept. I love that she can spend more than one hour helping me unlike most tutors. I look forward to working with her in Algebra 2 and overall I am very grateful she was there to help me and my grades are amazing!!!

Excellent tutor, I would HIGHLY recommend Melissa to anyone who needs assistance in Math specifically Statistics. She is the main reason I haven’t dropped my class and I currently have a A as well. Five Star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Really knowledgeable and Patient

Melissa is really knowledgeable and knows her stuff. My first tutoring session went extremely well. She was able to explain to me the reasoning behind each math problems allowing me to understand at my own pace. Overall she’s a great math tutor and funny as well!
