About Melissa

I am a recent graduate from Austin Peay. I tutor individual and small groups of students in the same ways that I was writing lesson plans for my small groups in my classroom. I would determine what the problem was and then create a fun way (meaning no or a few worksheets as possible) that we could figure out how to work around the problem and relate it to every day life. By giving the student(s) an alternative that they can relate to, they are more likely understand something. For example, when we did units of measurement, one of the small group activities was to measure different types of objects on a kitchen scale. My methods do tend to be hands on to give the student a first hand experience. I love working with students when they think the problem is too hard and then they suddenly understand the problem. It is a very satisfying moment. I am a recent graduate from Austin Peay.
