About Melanie

Need help with homework? I'm your gal!

I am a proud alumna of Oklahoma State University who loves to continue learning, and I hope to instill that same love of learning in others. English is my passion, but I am equally comfortable helping with elementary subjects and limited high school subjects other than English. I can assist in improving reading/writing skills, vocabulary, grammar, test prep, etc.

I believe that learning should be fun, fresh, and engaging - and that the learning process is a give and take process. Great teachers and tutors should always inspire their students by finding new interesting ways to learn; then, conversely, students inspire their teachers to continue to broaden the scope of their learning as they grow stronger in the subject. I strive to keep students interested by tackling problems creatively; working together to find a solution is very satisfying for both myself and my students.

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.

Public Speaking

I graduated with honors from Oklahoma State University, majoring in English. Since then, I have provided tutoring to college-level students needing help with reading, writing, and speech assignments. I love watching as students of all ages sharpen their written and verbal communication skills, and the resulting deepened appreciation for the English language.

I have taught English grammar and speech classes for the city of Dallas Public Works Department via my current employer. I am comfortable giving presentations for businesses, and I enjoy helping students polish their speeches and/or presentations.

I have a long history of leadership positions requiring verbal communication and dating all the way back to high school debate club (office management, sports team captain, sports coach, counselor, etc.). I am a very clear and concise communicator.

Sewing

I learned to sew when I started grade school; I took weekly lessons throughout elementary school and junior high. I participated in an annual talent show by creating my own outfit from a pattern, then walking in the outfit down a runway for family and friends.

I own a sewing machine and quilting machine, and these provide an outlet for my creativity. I am comfortable teaching needlework/embroidery, machine skills, or how to follow patterns.

Study Skills

As part of my first position with my current company, I helped run an in-house university for our technical staff (engineers, architects, etc.). I was paid to help our employees develop study skills in order to pass professional licensing exams, as well as successfully complete ongoing education requirements. I graduated from high school with 21 hours of college credit via AP exams. I did not use tutors; I taught myself through studying. I consistently made honor roll lists in high school and college due to good study habits.

Swimming

I swam competitively through high school and college; I was the captain of my high school team for 3 years, and the captain of an intramural squad for 1 season.

I have also coached 2 club teams; teams ranged in size from 30 to 65 swimmers, ages 5 to 18. I am comfortable tailoring workout plans to specific ages and/or skill levels.

Writing

I graduated with honors from Oklahoma State University, majoring in English. Since then, I have provided tutoring to college-level students needing help with reading, writing, and speech assignments. I love watching as students of all ages sharpen their written and verbal communication skills, and the resulting deepened appreciation for the English language.
