About Melissa

I am graduated from Antioch University Midwest in May and am currently working on obtaining my license in Special Educations as an Intervention Specialist/PreK - 12. I have been a substitute teacher since December 2015 with Dayton City Schools and since March 2016 with Centerville City Schools. I have two nephews that were diagnosed as having learning disabilities in elementary school. One is now a licensed electrician and one is a Flight Chief in the Army.
I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to their full potential. Unfortunately that is sometimes difficult to do during the regular school day. Students are required to move at such a fast pace in order to keep up with today's pace of learning that they can fall behind. Tutoring allows students to review what they have learned in the classroom and figure out what they may have missed that could be creating a problem with their complete comprehension of a subject. I love it when a student's brain is able to click and have that "Aha Moment" and realize they now know what the piece is that they didn't understand to do or finish an assignment.

I love anatomy, biology and science. I took anatomy, physiology and chemistry in college as I did not have the opportunity in high school. I quickly learned that making flashcards was very helpful in remembering all of the small details even though it was time consuming. It was something I could carry with me and look through when my time was limited. I have an undergraduate degree in Rehabilitation Education and studying sociology was a big part of understanding individuals, their past, present and future.

I encourage anyone to contact me to help you learn what you need in order to catch-up in school, additional help outside of the classroom, what you need to learn for college, and to better understand your learning style.

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.

ADHD

I am finishing up my M.Ed. in Special Education at Antioch University Midwest and will graduate in early May 2017. I am most certainly qualified. I have also been a substitute teacher for a year and as a counselor for 5 years worked with ADD/ADHD students. I currently am doing my Internship with mod-severe students.

Sociology

I have an M.S. in Mental Health CNL and I'm currently working on my M.Ed. I have taken many sociology and psychology courses for these degrees.
