I am currently a fourth grade teacher of English Language Arts in Carrollton, Texas. I have been in education for over 20 years with 15 years of classroom experience and about seven years of editing experience with an educational publishing company.

I have a Master's of Education in Reading, and I am certified to teach Pre-K through 6th grade with an ESL endorsement. I have experience with intervention strategies and can provide intervention for reading and writing with all levels.

I love teaching and learning. I find that I learn as much from my students as they learn from me.

Great Reading Tutor!

Melissa was very informative and knew exactly what my daughter needs in order to dig deeper into her reading. She gave some suggestions and spent time going over material she brought for her to practice with. My daughter loved her because she was so friendly and easy to talk to!
