About Melissa

Hello,

I recently relocated to Texas from California where I taught dance for fifteen years and owned and director the Bellissima Dance Arts, dance studio. I was a professional dancer and I am classically trained in ballet, modern dance, contemporary, and jazz. I have taught all ages from 2 1/2 year olds to adults. I have choreographed professionally and taught master classes all over California.

I have a bachelor's degree in Social Science with and education concentration and a minor in child development. I also have a master's degree in teaching and learning with technology. I am a Texas certified teacher in dance and will be completing my social studies test in January as well. I currently work in Special Education at a local elementary school. In January I will also be starting my doctorate program in Educational Leadership.

My goal is to eventually become an online professor. Besides dancing and the arts, teaching is my passion. I love to see my students reach their goals and succeed beyond what they thought they could achieve. Within the last several years I have become increasing interested in online education and instruction. I believe that technology allows students to take control of their learning and learn in a way that best fits their needs.

I have tutored elementary students all the way to adults. I am excited to see the success of my students and help instill a love and confidence of learning.

What makes me an outstanding history tutor is that my undergraduate degree is in the social sciences. I really enjoy social science and having great conversations about history, politics, and social studies. I feel that the social sciences are important because as a society we will continue to repeat the mistakes of the past unless we educate ourselves, remember the past and learn for the future.

I have been teaching ballet for 15 years. Prior to that I was a professional dancer for the Ruth Rosenburg Dance Ensemble in Sacramento California. I also studied with Alvin Ailey and Alonzo King Lines. I have continued my training over the years and stayed current on new emerging styles as well as continued training in classical ballet.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile. If you are in need or interested in tutoring in the arts, social sciences, elementary education, special education, college prep, child development, or education please feel free to contact me. Thank you so much!
