I am a certified math teacher with 20 years' experience. Eight years of this, I taught AP Statistics and for two years I worked as a high school math specialist focusing on at-risk students in Algebra 1. I have a bachelor's in mathematics and a master's in education, but also have experience with statistics, chemistry, physics, and engineering. I have extensive teaching experience including algebra, geometry, and statistics, including AP Statistics. I am also National Board certified in math, which is an elite accommodation given to highly qualified teachers. I have privately tutored for over 7 years. My clients have ranged from a 1st grader to a post-doctoral candidate needing help with statistics.
I believe that everyone can learn. I also believe that learning should be fun, and I try to include humor in my teaching. Although I have focused on teaching in the classroom during the previous decade, I have also done a great deal of tutoring individuals with a tremendous success. I am not only able to teach the subject matter, but also help with test-taking skills and strategies.
I would love the opportunity to discuss your needs or the needs of your student. Together we can create an individual plan that will work best for your needs. I look forward to hearing from you.
In just a very short time, Melissa has made a huge impact on my son's learning ability, She assured me his algebra skills would improve if she first concentrated on getting him organized. We only signed up for Algebra 1 lessons, but Melissa is helping him organize his thoughts, his papers and his learning and study process. no doubt these valuable skills will spill over into every other subject he takes in school! What a bonus! And she was right in believing his math skills would improve, they have!Leigh, 13 lessons with Misty

My daughter is very happy with Misty. Which has been a blessing to our family. Both my husband and I struggle with being able to help with her math homework. Now that Misty has been helping her, after school homework sessions have gone much more smoothly.Stacey, 2 lessons with Misty
Very Effective with AP Stats
Misty was great with my daughter for AP Stats. She knew the material right away, and they maximized their time together. We will definitely work with her again.Benjamin, 1 lesson with Misty
Easy to talk to and patient.
Misty helped me freshen up my math skills. She took what I though was a complex equation and simplified it in a way that was practical and relatable. I highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling.Charlie, 1 lesson with Misty

Excellent help with College Level Business Finance using Excel!
My daughter who is a senior in college was struggling with her Business Finance course. Misty's experience and knowledge enabled her to understand the source of my daughter's confusion and provide her with the instruction she needed to comprehend the concepts that were giving her trouble. Following their session, my daughter was more clear on how to do the problems and felt that more practice would help increase her understanding. Misty was able to meet with my daughter on short notice, and I have encouraged her to contact Misty again should she need additional help. Thank you so much, Misty!Joni, 1 lesson with Misty
Melissa has been a huge help to my son. He was struggling in his stat class and asked for help. We had used WyzAnt with our older son when he was away at college so I thought I would try it again. She is very patient with him and makes sure he has the material covered before they end their session. She has made a big impact on him and his grade has improved.Beth (Jordan), 4 lessons with Misty
