About Melissa

I am a caring and responsible tutor who has experience teaching Charleston kids how to read and write, and I have an arsenal of good tips to speed up the process.

For two years in high school at Porter Gaud, I was the service leader for a program called Rise Up and Read that helped teach downtown first graders how to read, and I also spent one summer tutoring a local girl in math and reading.

I am entering my senior year as an English/Writing major in college and have been published in national magazines for writing. I love working with kids and am an experienced baby-sitter as well. I can still remember vividly when my parents taught me how to read, and I think that it is an amazing experience.

I can also help with music (piano, guitar) and swimming lessons.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was the leader of a tutoring program in high school called Rise Up and Read for two years. We tutored elementary students in math and english twice a week.

Phonics

I was a service leader for a program called Rise Up and Read in Charleston and volunteered there for two years. The focus was on first graders who were behind in reading and were still having to learn rudimentary phonics and word-formation. My writing background includes being a writing major and working as a writing tutor currently at Charleston Southern University.
