About Mel

I began tutoring college students in 2011 and my passion for helping people be the best communicators they can be grew from there! My BA is in communication and rhetoric, but my cross-training with the English and Political Science departments gave me greater knowledge base for different kinds of writing.

From 2013--2014, I worked for Pitt's public relations office, learning about scientific writing and currently work full time in editing for academic journals. I am therefore very familiar highly technical and analytic writing. I believe that everyone, even those not naturally inclined to writing, has something important to share and I love helping people find their best way of doing that.

In addition to my own writing and editing skills, I have also edited documents for PhD candidates, professors, high school students, and college students. I also understand that non-traditional types of writing, such as PowerPoints and audio track scripts, are important and have experience working with students and professionals in these areas as well. I have also worked as a public speaking tutor for computer science graduate students.

I look forward to hearing from anyone hoping to work through any writing problems they have! I am readily available by email and hope to hear from you soon.

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.

Public Speaking

In addition to taking several college-level public speaking courses, I have also worked as a public speaking tutor for the University of Pittsburgh's department of computer sciences. As their on-staff tutor, I met with graduate students preparing for regional and national lectures and presentations and coached them on both their speaking style and use of visual aids. I also have personal and professional experience as a public speaker, giving talks at both the University of Pittsburgh and West Virginia University and enjoy presenting information to large groups as much as possible.
