About Melanie

I am currently in my 13th year in the education profession. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades in North Carolina using the Common Core and in the Middle East. I enjoy getting to know my learners and their families. I have tutored reading and math for third, fourth grades, and reading for fifth grade in preparation for End-of-Grade testing as well as first and second reading. I teach phonics daily in my first grade class. I like to have activities that are hands-on for my young learners as these typically encourage more active participation and engagement. I enjoy teaching all components of reading! I know what is expected for the different grade levels for students to be successful and am prepared to go the extra mile to ensure student success.

My goal in teaching is to identify my learners' strengths and what areas they need additional support. I typically tend to pre-assess, find materials and activities that support the learner's needs, and then post-assess. This gives me information as to how the learner is growing in the skills being taught. I love the moment when learners start understanding and enjoying learning!

I look forward to hearing from you and working together to help you achieve success!

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.

Common Core

I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades all subject areas and tutored for first, second, third, fourth, and fifth. I know what is expected for the different grade levels for students to be successful and am prepared to go the extra mile to ensure student success. I have taught with and without the Common Core.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently licensed to teach K-6 and have a Gifted and Talented add-on certification. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades all subject areas and tutored for first, second, third, fourth, and fifth. I know what is expected for the different grade levels for students to be successful and am prepared to go the extra mile to ensure student success.

ESL/ESOL

I lived and taught for three years in the Middle East. While teaching there, I taught English, Math, and Science to local kindergarten students with little to no English skills. My students acquired English quicker than the other classes that were in the same school.

Phonics

I currently teach phonics on a daily basis in my first grade class. Phonics is extremely important as it is the basis for reading fundamentals and understanding. I like to use hands-on phonics activities that encourage the most learner engagement.

Reading

I currently teach first grade in which I focus on letter names and sounds, nonsense words, and sight words.
