About Melinda

I enjoy helping students succeed and gain confidence! I believe each person is an individual and learns in his or her own way. My task is to observe how an individual learns, what impedes learning and help them overcome obstacles. I like to make learning fun!

I have an MA in Foreign Language Education from The Ohio State University, with a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. ESL teaching experience includes The Ohio State University, Kent State University and The University of Akron, as well as community-based programs in Indiana and Ohio.

My Russian experience includes and MA in Slavic Linguistics from the Ohio State University, a year in the former Soviet Union, and teaching first year Russian at The Ohio State University.

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.

English

I am an experienced ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher and am also a professional librarian (MLS). I enjoy helping students improve their English skills as well as their study skills: I like to see people succeed! I taught English as a Second Language in several community-based programs, including Canton City Schools ABLE, as well as at the Ohio State University.

ESL/ESOL

I have an M.A. in TESOL from Ohio State University, and received k-12 ESL certification from the state of Ohio. My experience includes teaching graduate students ESL at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, and teaching immigrants at the Lafayette Adult Resource Academy in Lafayette, Indiana.

Russian

I have a B.A. and an M.A. in Russian, as well as all coursework toward a Ph.D. in Slavic Linguistics from Ohio State University. I taught first year Russian at both Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio and Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

I am experienced in teaching all aspects of the language: reading, writing, listening and speaking and lived in the former Soviet Union for one year. I have worked both in a classroom setting and in individualized instruction at Ohio State.
