About Melissa

I am a 1998 and 2003 graduate of Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in English with a minor in history and my Master's degree in Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I was able to gain experience tutoring college students in the remedial writing labs while I was there.

I am currently a part-time English teacher. I am in my 17th year of teaching. I love the learning process, to see a student light up when he or she finally understands, and I'm up for any challenge. I have experience teaching most history courses from 6th to 12th grade and various English and reading courses in that range as well. I also have experience tutoring math and reading at the elementary level.

I am passionate about history and social studies. I try to tell history as a story to make it interesting. I also love to put you in the setting so I use lots of maps and other visuals to try to bring the lessons to life.

I believe that students who don't have fun and aren't successful will not learn, so I try to be as encouraging and fun as possible and to set students up for success. I am a flexible person and can meet students somewhere public or they can come to my house for lessons. Parents are always welcomed and encouraged to participate in the lesson as well. I look forward to helping you to meet your goals on your learning journey!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Hector. You are a great student to tutor: you know what questions you want answered, you're prepared to work, and you collaborate well. I know you'll do a great job in all your classes, not just the ones in writing!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a Sunday school teacher and am currently a Bible Quizzing coach and director at my church. In coaching this event, students take a book, or books, of the bible and study them closely in order to participate in periodic competitions against other church teams. I must be sure students learn memory verses and multiple choice questions about the text throughout the school year.
I, myself, participated in quizzing as a child and teen for 10 years and have studied in depth the books of Genesis, Exodus, Matthew, Luke, Acts, Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Phillipians, Colossians, Philemon, Timothy, James, Galatians, and Ephesians, among others.

Social Studies

I have taught the following subjects in grades 6-12: Texas history, US history, World history, World geography, Psychology, and Sociology. Many of these classes I taught for multiple years. I taught Texas history for 8 years and drove all over the state to various historical sites as research for my class.
