About Melissa

I have had many different teaching experiences, from day to day substituting, long term substitute positions, literacy tutoring, and summer camp counseling. In the fall, I will be working as a full time English teacher in 7th and 9th grades. However, I have experience working closely with students from grades 3-12.

I have worked with students from all different backgrounds and with a variety of ability levels and have helped them to succeed. I believe that my knowledge of different strategies and approaches to teaching a learning suits me well as a tutor. I am able to identify students' areas of strength and need and can determine what will work best for that student individually. I do not believe in a one size fits all approach to education, and I believe that this serves me well in tutoring.

I am a certified English teacher for grades 7-12 and a certified Literacy teacher for grades 5-12. Because of this educational background, as well as my experience in teaching English and working with students in these capacities, I will be an excellent tutor. I have also been published in a joint research project titled "Literature Circles Go Digital." I have spent time researching current educational practices and tactics to best serve modern students.

Please contact me so that we can set up a time to meet!
