About Melissa

As a graduate student working on an M.A. in English, I am experienced with developing original thesis statements and writing literary interpretations (papers) that successfully defend them. I am also knowledgeable about literary theory and how to apply the different critical lenses to a text. My degree focuses on a dual specialization in Gothic studies and rhetoric.

Aside from my academic experience, I specialize in teaching ESL. I was a literacy tutor for a year with the Literacy Volunteers of Kent County, I have been a substitute teacher at an International Institute for two years well-known for providing excellent instruction in English to speakers of other languages. I am also currently teaching my own ESL course at International House. As an ESL teacher, I write lesson plans that incorporate reading, writing, listening and speaking. I also develop my own learning materials, work one-on-one with students and correct their work.

I am available for tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. I am available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights from 6:00-8:00 p.m. I am also available on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. I meet students in public places such as coffee shops and libraries. My rate is 35$ per hour.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
