About Melanie

I enjoy building supportive relationships with my students through one-on-one sessions, text follow up support, and email communication with parents. I have 9+ years experience teaching mathematics in New York City public schools, and have been tutoring privately since I was a Columbia University freshman in 2001. My degree in Applied Math qualifies me to tutor a wide range of content from middle school math through college, but my years in the classroom are what make me an excellent tutor.

I understand that math is not everyone's favorite subject, and I understand that state tests can be painful and feel unfair. Let's work together to overcome your hurdles, pull ahead of the pack, and maybe -- just maybe -- put a smile on your face the next time you walk into math class.

If you are looking for a Regents tutor, please note that I have worked with NYS to develop the Common Core curriculum that many schools are using in addition to teaching Common Core Geometry in my own classroom. If you're willing to work hard, I'll be there for you every step of the way.

Regents Exams in Integrated Algebra, Algebra (Common Core), Geometry, Geometry (Common Core), Algebra II/Trig, all Middle School and High School math courses, ACT Math, SAT Math, SAT II Math

Why was Six afraid of Seven? Because Seven ate Nine!! And there's more where that came from! Now let's get to work!

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.

Logic

I teach a logic unit in my geometry class. We go over statements, negations, truth value, compound statements (conjunctions and disjunctions) and conditional statements (converse, inverse, contrapositive). Additionally, I have tutored college level logic.
