About Melissa

I am currently in my third year of dental school at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. I have held dean's list standing through each of my semesters at Rutgers, and several years ago I graduated magna cum laude from Ramapo College with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry. I also completed the college honors program at Ramapo College, and have participated in research programs at both Rutgers University and Ramapo College. Throughout both college and graduate school, I worked as a tutor for students from high school to college level, and gained experience with a wide variety of learning types. As a long-time student myself, I understand many of the issues that even good students face when studying science and math.

I also have experience tutoring SAT prep, and offer tutoring in all 3 SAT areas. During high school, I earned a score of 2330 on the SAT (730 on the math section, and 800 on both the reading and writing sections). I know from experience how studying for the SAT is very different from studying for high school classes, and my goal is to help students learn strategies for individual success in this critical area. I favor a very low-key and interactive approach, and I enjoy the opportunity to help students reach their full potential.
