Centre College (Biochemistry)
After graduating from Centre College with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry Molecular Biology, I decided to join the education field as a High School Chemistry teacher.
Teaching and tutoring are significant joys in my life.
I have been a chemistry teacher now for 9 years. I am currently an AP Chemistry Teacher with some weekends and evenings available for tutoring in various subjects, namely chemistry, basketball, and choral sight reading.

We can't say enough great things about Melissa. First, she was easy to connect with and very easy to schedule our first session with. She gave us lots of options for times and it was clear early on that she was very interested in the success of our daughter. We were looking for a tutor who of course knew her material, (in our case it was AP Chemistry) and more importantly could relate to her students. Melissa has consistently excelled in all the areas that parents (and students) would want from their tutor. She is professional, but has a real connection with her students and is invested in their success. When ask after our first session with Melissa what our daughter thought, she said with a big smile on her face "She's really nice dad, and she really really knows her stuff!" You can't ask for more as a parent. If you're looking for a tutor who is invested in your child's success in his or her class and is reliable and, as my daughter says, "really really knows her stuff," then I am confident you'll find all that and more with Melissa!
Melissa is a chemistry teacher - it's what she does on a daily basis, and she knows how to communicate the subject matter on a level that is easy to understand.
Excellent tutor. Melissa is able to break down a complicated subject and teach it to my daughter. Her grade has greatly improved due to the help she is receiving from sessions with Melissa. She is easy to reach by phone or email and generally available to meet for one hour or more sessions. I would highly recommend Melissa.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I played for National Hall of Fame HS Basketball coach Leta Andrews and my team won Area (class 4A) in Texas in high school. I was all-state as a senior, and then I went on to play point guard in college, averaging 71% from the 3-point line and I lettered in varsity track and varsity basketball in College. I've coached several basketball camps with Coach Andrews and I've coached several Upward and AAU teams in Texas. I've been giving individual and small group fundamentals for dribbling, driving and shooting lessons during the summers, and the players see great results and go into the school year with a lot more confidence in their skills.
