Alongside my undergraduate degree in mathematics, I earned a minor in education. While earning that degree, I tutored high school students in various mathematics subjects. My math background extends from basic math through calculus and differential equations all the way to numerical analysis. I went on to study business and accounting at the graduate level. I currently have a career in the accounting field. My job encompasses cost accounting, month end closing journal entries, and accounts payable. I also have experience in tax accounting. I earned the CMA certification (Certified Management Accountant) in August 2017.

I love tutoring because it provides the one-on-one attention that everyone deserves. I believe that math is capable of being understood by just about anyone. However, most people are not taught math in a way they can understand. Teachers do their best to reach everyone but do not have the time to teach every lesson in 30 different ways. That's where tutors come in. Tutors only teach one person at a time and can therefore tailor each lesson to match each student's preferred method of learning. I cannot wait to help you realize your strengths and discover the wonderful world of numbers!

I excelled in honors math in grades K-12 and rediscovered my love of math in college. I worked as a math tutor in Lubbock, TX and volunteered as the chess club president.

I studied all areas of accounting and was a member of an accounting honors fraternity during grad school. I went on to pursue a career in accounting.

I am available evenings and weekends. I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, however I am willing to do make-up sessions. I plan to treat you with respect and not waste your time, so please return the courtesy. For the best tutoring, please provide the subject and topic to be covered along with the isbn of your textbook. This information is not critical but will allow me to be better prepared for our session. If you are willing to do the work, I will do everything I can to help you accomplish your goals! You can do this!!!

I volunteered alongside Grandmaster and World Chess Champion Susan Polgar. I also taught chess to ages 4-13 at the local community center.

I joined the water polo team the summer before my 9th grade year and remained a member until graduation. My team went on to place 5th, 5th, 2nd, and 2nd at the Texas State Meet over the years. During the summers, we would travel to California for more advanced training and competition. I briefly competed in college, but had to stop due to lack of female participation. I am currently working towards getting in shape to join a Master's water polo team.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Melynda worked well with my reluctant teenager. She showed a lot of patience and never got frustrated. My son shared how the time with Melynda was helpful and he would work with her again as needed.
