Hi! My name is Melodie. I graduated with a PhD in biomedical engineering from Texas A&M University (whoop!).

In elementary school I had a very difficult time with math, and then again in middle school I had a very difficult time grasping onto algebra.

Hi! My name is Melodie. I graduated with a PhD in biomedical engineering from Texas A&M University (whoop!).

In elementary school I had a very difficult time with math, and then again in middle school I had a very difficult time grasping onto algebra.

It was with the help of a few teachers, specifically, their positive reinforcement, a lot of patience, and persistence to do extra work on my weak subjects that I started to excel and actually enjoy math. Math became more of a game than a chore. For example, imagining that I'm a private investigator, solving a mystery, and the solution is X.

I bring that same positivity and game-inspired way of tutoring to empower students to have fun while also excelling at math and science (since math is the core to a strong science foundation).

I have a cumulative of 3 years tutoring in math and science from basic levels (for example, Pre-Algebra) all the way to advanced subjects (e.g, Linear Algebra and quantum physics).

I not only show students tips and tricks to solving specific problems, but also how to slow down, maintain a positive attitude, and tackle the problem in a logical, systematic way.

I would love to benefit the students I work with as much as possible and introduce them to this way of learning. I am easy to reach and will provide fast responses.

Go ahead and contact me with additional questions and to schedule a lesson! =D

I used to be in your shoes, struggling with my algebra classes, super overwhelmed. But then I had a few tutoring sessions with a great teacher, and I found that I was just confused about a few simple key concepts. With practice and persistence, I went to the top of my class and loved algebra ever since. Let me show you some of the tips and tricks I've picked up along the way!

Great teacher

We visualized a lot of the problems that I didn’t understand. I hadn’t really been able to comprehend what I was trying to do, and she really helped with that. I’d forgotten I liked math!
