About Melissa

I am a very motivated and nurturing first grade teacher. This is my second year working at a year round charter school in Charlotte, so I have a 5 week long winter break. During this break, I would love to continue teaching and helping students excel.

I have my Bachelors in Elementary Education with a minor in math, as well as my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, both from The University of Connecticut. Like I said, I would love to help out in any way I can during my break (I'm off until January 5th), and continue throughout the school year :)

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 have a Bachelors in Elementary Education. I also have a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been teaching 1st grade for two years at a charter school in Charlotte.

Elementary Math

I have my Bachelors in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics. I have always had an interest in math, and I have tutored friends in various math subjects. Math is one of my strongest subjects.

Handwriting

I am currently a first grade teacher. At the school I work at, there is a huge emphasis on handwriting. Students are taught to form their letters correctly, take their time, and always do their best work.

Phonics

I have 2 years experience using Saxon Phonics and Spelling as a teacher. I truly enjoy teaching this subject. As a first grade teacher, a large part of the day is spent on teaching phonics.

Study Skills

I was on the Dean's List throughout my undergraduate career. I also got a 4.0 GPA during my Master's year. I have helped peers work on study skills throughout college.
