About Melissa

I went to school for elementary education. I graduated from Westminster College. After graduation, I was a substitute teacher in 3 schools. I then accepted a position with AmeriCorp through Mohawk Elementary school. There I helped students who needed extra help with reading and math. I also tutored after school. My speciality is math, but I also tutor in reading and spelling.
I recently accepted a position as a preschool teacher. I had 45 students split into 3 classes, ranging from 3-5 years old. Our school year has come to an end. I am looking to help students in the summer that need one on one teaching!

I have been in various school districts for 4 years and I am aware of the common core process and have worked with it.

I have worked in various classrooms with teachers helping in math, reading, and spelling. I would take students one on one for extra help.

I worked in a kindergarten and first grade classroom for a year. I Also taught preschool for 7 months.

I love to see children succeed. I would love to get the chance to help improve grades in any way I can!

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.

Common Core

I have been working in various school districts for 4 years. I have helped co-teach as well as tutor students one-on-one in all common core areas. I am well aware of how common core is to be taught and I feel I am capable of tutoring students in this area.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from Westminster College with a degree in Elementary Education. My certification covers grades K-6. I feel I am well qualified to tutor students in these subject areas. I have worked in many classrooms with many types of students.

Phonics

I have been teaching phonics since I started in the classrooms. When I subbed, I was mostly in k-2 classrooms. I have also taught preschool for 7 months. I have many activities and lessons I could use to teach phonics.
