About Melissa

Hi there, I'm Melissa.

I'm a positive, upbeat tutor who is great at explaining things. I earned my Bachelor of Science in economics from Oregon State University and my Master of Science in Magazine Writing from the University of Oregon.

Starting 7/18, I will be available to tutor in the Hood River area. My main area of expertise is academic writing for high school and college students. I can help students learn how to vet sources, organize information, write thesis statements and avoid common writing errors.

I have also been known to work with middle school students.

I tailor lessons to each student and his/her needs. I have been tutoring for over seven years and currently work in the publishing industry.

Summer is a great time to brush up on writing skills. Leap into the new school year confident in your wiring skills and feeling ready to take on any assignment.

I love working with students but have limited availability to do so. So that I can offer the best services, I usually only take on a few students at a time. Please note: If you are on a budget, I have one spot open at a reduced rate for a low-income student. This spot is offered on a first come, first serve basis and proof of income may be required.

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.

Business

In college, my major was economics and my minor was business, so I had to take 32 credit hours of business classes. As a freelance writer, I have to manage day-to-day business operations for myself: maintaining professional communication with clients, preparing invoices, navigating customer needs. In essence, I handle a lot of business needs each day. Between my schooling and my professional experience, I can help with all sorts of business needs, whether you're stuck in your marketing class, trying to email a client, or organizing a presentation.

English

I have a Master's degree in journalism and work in the publishing industry. I have been tutoring English and writing for 6 years.
