Tarleton State University (MEd)
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!

Mrs. Melissa showed up on time and the service provided is quality. We covered alternatives with using quotes and APA style. She answered all of of my questions; I am satisfied. It was a pleasure.
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!
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 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.
