About Melisa


Bio

I have always had a passion for learning and helping others, which has naturally led me to this path of tutoring others. No matter how successful you are as a student, tutoring is always beneficial. Having someone who has been in your shoes and can relate to working hard for improvement is helpful for anyone, whether you may be struggling with your grades or or simply want an extra boost.

I have always had a passion for learning and helping others, which has naturally led me to this path of tutoring others. No matter how successful you are as a student, tutoring is always beneficial. Having someone who has been in your shoes and can relate to working hard for improvement is helpful for anyone, whether you may be struggling with your grades or or simply want an extra boost.

I create a tutoring session in which I am an equal with my student. I know that my student won't be the only one learning from these sessions. I encourage feedback from my students.

I teach ALL SUBJECTS from pre-K to fifth grade and work very well with children. I have a large family and have extensive experience tutoring relatives, family friends, siblings and others. I am very willing and eager to help children learn how to read and write, which really plays a large part in how the child will perform in school for years to come. The best approach with children is to always make it fun for them!

I have a passion for reading and writing and have taken many advanced courses in English, history, and law which have really challenged me in being a great reader and writer. I have tutored ALL ages in English and grammar. I teach children how to read and write and help fellow students in college beyond my age write their research papers and theses.
I am eager to help others reach their full potential! Education is so important and I truly believe as long as you receive an education and work hard, you have the world in your hands. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you become successful!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring students in elementary school for years now. I first started off peer tutoring in elementary school then moved on to tutoring family and siblings and I've continued to tutor part time while going to college. I have plenty of experience working with kids, keeping them engaged and making it fun! I love working with this age group especially and tend to seek out tutoring opportunities in all elementary subjects. I would love to help!

I am a third year college student and have always excelled in reading and writing. From elementary to high school I've received many awards in reading and writing. Now in college, I was elected by professors to be a peer writing intensive tutor. Also, I've been helping my peers from a young age in improving their skills and now have used my hours of experience to help tutor people of a broad range of ages in a broad range of subjects. So I would love to help your child succeed!

As you can see from my profile I work with almost all ages and subjects. I come from a large family with many siblings and cousins and that's how I started off. I would babysit and tutor and now I tutor students in elementary school, middle school and college. I've been tutoring for years. So I know how to keep children engaged and it really keeps the material fresh in my memory. I have no excuse for forgetting things! So let me know what hours are good for you and hopefully we can work this out! I know how competitive it's become these years, even with kids so if it helps, I got scores of 3s and 4s in elementary school on my state tests in English and Math. Thank you! Melisa

American History

I have taken the American history regents, for which I got a score of 97. I also got a score of 4 on the AP United States history exam in high school. I continued to take rigorous history and is politics classes throughout college. My knowledge of history comes from these multiple heavy courses, reading on my free time, and keeping up with tutoring students.

Biology

I am a third year biology student and have earned a GPA of 4.0. I have taken and still take rigorous courses such as genetics, neuroanatomy, botany, evolution, gene expression, neuroanatomy & physiology, forms & functions of life, etc. Many people think doing well in biology simply means memorizing. Although it certainly is important, and I can offer my tips on doing this well, it is essential to have a deeper understanding of the material and I'm more than willing to help with that. So don't be hesitant to contact me! I'm happy to share what I've learned, and give tips and tricks to succeeding!
