About Melanie


Bio

I began tutoring in 2004 for two male students with ADHD. Having three sons of my own, I found I was patient and adaptable to high energy level students. I obtained my Masters Degree in Elementary Education in 2008 from East Tennessee State University. I worked for two years at a school tutoring at-risk students one-on-one or in small groups. Helping students of all ages and ability ranges is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am spontaneous and fun as a tutor. Whether I am...

I began tutoring in 2004 for two male students with ADHD. Having three sons of my own, I found I was patient and adaptable to high energy level students. I obtained my Masters Degree in Elementary Education in 2008 from East Tennessee State University. I worked for two years at a school tutoring at-risk students one-on-one or in small groups. Helping students of all ages and ability ranges is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am spontaneous and fun as a tutor. Whether I am assisting a 1st grade student with letter sounds (pretending to be Fonzie from Happy Days for letter "A"); or helping 8th grade rambunctious boys with Language Arts and verb tenses, I feel I meet the challenge of maintaining student interest and engagement.

Every student is unique, with their own strengths and areas needing improvement. I enjoy finding the right teaching style and mix to meet the needs of each individual student I work with.
What I have consistently loved most about tutoring is helping that frustrated student who does not believe in him or herself. That moment when they find success in learning, that moment when they say, "I really am smart!" - That is the moment I love most.

I have a Masters Degree in Elementary K-6. I have raised/tutored my own four children through successful elementary and middle school academics. I am a relaxed, easy-going teacher that my students seem to love. I enjoy teaching as much as my students enjoy learning.

My specific strengths are within language arts. I am a freelance writer myself. I write and read for enjoyment. I love helping students discover the wonderful world of reading. Also, I was raised by an English teacher (lol!). I grew up learning a new vocabulary word in the refrigerator every week. Grammatical and pronunciation errors were corrected in my home (and still are).

I have tutored two ADHD diagnosed students in my home during their elementary years. One of my four children is diagnosed ADD. In the two years I taught in the public school system, I was specifically given the students with attention problems to work with one-on-one or in small groups. Not every time, but the majority of the time, the student that is unique, stands out, or causes their teachers a hard time - I find I am able to connect with and they become my favorites.

I have a very flexible schedule. I would love the opportunity to meet students/families that wish for tutoring services. I would love the opportunity to help any student grow closer to their potential. Please contact me for any further questions or inquiries.
