About Melinda

I recently completed my 16th year in the classroom; 15 of those years were as an elementary teacher. I have taught all grades except first grade; I taught fifth grade for 10 years. I also taught sixth and seventh grades, teaching middle school social studies. I am certified in both Elementary Education (grades 1-6) and Social Studies (grades 6-12).

I truly enjoy tutoring because I enjoy the one-on-one experience that tutoring provides. Children that have difficulty in a classroom tend to work well with a tutor because they get all of the teacher's attention. As a tutor, I find that I can be more "myself," too, and it is a more relaxed situation for both me and for my tutorees.

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your educational goals! Please email me and we can schedule a time to meet.

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 am certified in Elementary Education grades 1-6, and have been teaching since 1999. I not only taught in the classroom, but I also tutored students in various subjects such as reading, math, and study skills. I am patient and kind, but I do have I expectations and love helping students achieve their goals.

Social Studies

As an elementary school teacher, I taught Social Studies to the entire fifth grade for many years. Social Studies in fifth grade was American History. Because of my passion for Social Studies, I became certified in Social Studies for grades 6-12. I have also taught World History in grades six and seven.

Study Skills

As an elementary school teacher, I am well aware of how crucial it is for young people to develop effective study and organization skills. Establishing routines, managing a planner, utilizing a highlighter, note-taking skills, and learning to annotate properly are all strategies I would use for tutoring study skills.
