About Heather Mechelle

Having experience in working with international students and scholars for ten years, I'm culturally intelligent, as well as culturally sensitive. I've taught and tutored ESL and conversational English in three Higher Education institutions. I have a Master's degree in Higher Education which I use to assist others in learning, furthering their education. Having worked as a Cross-Cultural Mentor for several years, I know the struggles of a language learner, and how important it is for new international people to feel welcome as well as learn English.

I've worked at Game On Enterprises and Williamson's Instruments as a graphic designer, using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I also enjoy working in Photoshop in my spare time, as a hobby. I also work with grade school through high school students in math, algebra, science, social studies, history, music, computer skills, public speaking, English, and Spanish.

Having a Master's in Higher Education and International Education: I understand, appreciate and advocate higher learning and continuing education.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

College Counseling

I've worked on several Statements of Purpose and Statements of Interest with university applicants and medical school applicants. I have also proofread for institutions as well as international publications. Additionally, I have taught English at a university in Saudi Arabia and tutored students in writing with proper grammar and syntax structures. I have also tutored students desiring to enhance their creative writing skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

I'm knowledgeable on the subjects from K-6th grade and am able to tutor in this range. I've tutored and taught students in this age group on all elementary subjects. I've worked for four different institutions (including two where I'm currently working.) I have a Master's in Education and am confident and competent to instruct in K-6th grade subjects.

I'm currently tutoring a Korean student who is in 4th grade. Additionally, I was a mentor and tutor for an American student as well as a Hispanic student, ranging from English, ESL, math, study skills and test preparation, time management, etc.

ESL/ESOL

Teacher and Master's in Education - math - writing - reading - ESL - proofreading - elementary - middle school - high school - college - adult education - etc. - Languages: Arabic - Spanish

Microsoft Outlook

I have worked at a university where we used Microsoft Outlook, and Exchange, in-depth, for eleven years. In my position there, I've taught new coworkers how to set up Outlook on their computers and how to add multiple email accounts to the same Outlook. I feel confident to teach others how to use both Outlook and Exchange.

Public Speaking

I have a degree in Public Relations and have previously tutored students in public speaking. I'm confident that I can help others in gaining the confidence for speaking publicly.
Additionally, I can help students (children to adults) acquire the skills necessary for speaking in front of people, such as Leading presentations, reading reports aloud, public relations and public speaking in general.

Study Skills

I have worked for a tutoring company where I helped students from different ages and backgrounds to be better prepared and organized for their exams and courses.

Better organization leads to better grades and quicker success in school. I have a toolbox full of tips and skills which would help anybody of any age.

TOEFL

I have been working with people whose English is not their first language for ten years and have a Master's in Education. I've also worked and taught at several institutions inside and outside of the US.
