About Melodie

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Winthrop University. I have a Master of Education degree in Elementary Education. I also have my teaching certification in Elementary Education. I have worked in education for the last 15 years as a teacher and instructional assistant in kindergarten through fifth grade.

I truly enjoy working with students to help them gain confidence and to succeed in school!! My favorite subject is Math!! I like to make learning math fun, by having students play games, learn songs, or interactively count objects.

I also enjoy teaching reading strategies that will enable students to figure out words. I love to teach proper English and correct sentence structure.

I believe all students can learn. I would love to work with students who may be struggling or need a little extra assistance in math, reading, grammar, spelling, or handwriting. If you are interested in improving these skills, I would love to help! Please contact me to schedule lessons!

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 am a teacher with an Elementary Teaching certification and have taught grades 2-5. I have worked with Common Core for the last four years. I have tutored students and worked with the After School program, teaching and helping students with common core.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a teacher with an Elementary Education certification. I have worked as an Instructional Assistant working with students in all grades K-5 for ten years. I have also worked as a teacher teaching students in grades 2-5 for three years. I have worked as an After School Challenger teacher for about five years helping students with homework, math, and reading strategies. I have also tutored individual students.

Handwriting

I have worked with students to improve handwriting by having them use paper with preprinted lines. I teach the students to start at the top blue line and go down to the bottom blue line. If the letter is a short letter, the student should go up to the red line, but they should always touch a line. They should put about a finger space between each word. I also have my teaching certification in Elementary Education.

Phonics

I have worked with students teaching at the Elementary level in grades 2-5 for three years. I have taught students the letters of the alphabet and the sounds each letter makes. I have worked with flash cards and pictures to help students understand the sounds letters or letter combinations, consonant blends, and digraphs make. I have had students write sentences listening for the sounds to determine how to spell the words, and sound words out by slowly putting the sounds together to form the words.
