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

Patient and Great Tutor

We were looking for a tutor who would be able to help my niece better understand math. My niece is smart, so we assumed that everything would be ok if she just worked harder, but with math she struggled. Since she has been receiving help from Melodie we have seen an improvement in her work and she has more confidence when completing her math assignments. I would like to thank Melodie for helping my niece better understand math.

Melodie has been a wonderful tutor! My daughter is engaged during and after her math tutoring sessions. Melodie has done a great job in identifying my daughter's math abilities , needs and goals. Thank you Melodie.

Magdalena, 18 lessons with Melodie

Great!!

Melodie was patient and kind to my daughter. My daughter is homeschooled and very shy. They did great together. This was a great tutoring session. She was able to give my daughter some confidence in her work. We hope she sticks with us!!

Amanda, 19 lessons with Melodie

So happy to have found Melodie!

I sought a tutor for my daughter because I have zero patience and realized that my attitude was lowering my daughter's math confidence. So glad we found Melodie! My daughter loves working with Melodie, and we're both sure that Melodie will gently and steadily bring her up to speed and beyond. See you online on Friday!

Knowledgeable and patient turor

She is currently teaching my two daughters algebra, they all seem to be hitting it off. We have never used a tutor so we were very unsure, she made us comfortable and ready to learn. We will definitely keep using her. Thank you Melody

Knowledgeable and patient.

Melodie taught me Intermediate Algebra. She broke it down in a way I could understand. Considering I struggled so much with it. She went over and over with me until I got it. She’s awesome.

Fantasha , 2 lessons with Melodie

My son didn't want the session to end; if you knew my son you would know why that is a big deal!

The first session was great! My son said he did not want the session to end, and that he learned so much in just that first hour. I was shocked, in awex and amazed. I scheduled another session right away for the same week!

Lakilya, 4 lessons with Melodie

Patient and Perceptive

Melodie was able to zero in on my daughter’s opportunities and get her more comfortable with the Math lesson! She was able to break down her barrier and get her to take it step by step.

Great tutor!

Melodie is helping study for my ASVAB. She is knowledgeable and patient. She really explains things in way I can understand. We worked thru strategies to solve word problems and computations.

Natasha , 8 lessons with Melodie

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!
