I am a certified secondary teacher with over 15 years experience teaching and tutoring a wide variety of subjects and ages. I have a degree in English from Southern Methodist University with a specialization in Creative Writing. I also have a minor in education. In addition to my outstanding abilities in English, I have a great deal of training in helping students prepare for a variety of tests like the GED and ACT. And even though my degree is in English, I am an excellent Math teacher. In fact, I made a 100 in Algebra when I was in high school. What makes me a great tutor is my ability to connect with my students, to hear what they have to say, and to determine the best teaching strategy to help them learn the given material. I take a light hearted approach to learning, understanding that when students enjoy what they are studying, they are much more likely to retain the material. Even though I have a great sense of humor and like to lighten my session with a little levity, I take learning seriously and do everything I can to make sure students not only learn but also master their material.
Gentle, Knowledgeable & Patient Tutor
Melanie, patiently worked and walked our child through her homework. This was a first lesson for her outside of school, so there was some anxiety about how it would all work and it was super easy, and our child is ready to return. Melanie's process is slow, gentle, methodical and paced based on the rate and speed of our child. It was a great first.Greg, 3 lessons with Melanie
Great connection with kids.
She really connected with my grandson and he felt comfortable learning from her. He wants to continue learning from her because he said he likes her. I was really worried at first but she made him feel good about himself which made me happy.Audrey, 2 lessons with Melanie

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor!!!
Melaine was great!! She gave my daugther and myself so many helpful tools. She is very passionate about what she does. I am so happy we found her. My daugther is looking forward to her session. She is also confident that she will get a great score on her SAT with Melaine’s help.Kristy , 2 lessons with Melanie
Fun and confidence-building tutor!
In the first tutoring session, Melanie gave my teenage son a huge dose of confidence. He came home excited about about subject that had previously caused him angst - Math. Her tutoring style made my son think he could pass any Math test - and pass he did!Lisa , 1 lesson with Melanie

Melanie is great with my son
He listens, responds, and Melanie is one of the very few he will do homework for. He really likes her and likes going to see her.Ammi, 24 lessons with Melanie
Melanie worked with my daughter to prepare her for a EOC algebra 1 test. Melanie answered all of her questions and assisted her with the material that was unfamiliar. The test was this morning and my daughter came out confident that she did well.Jimmy, 1 lesson with Melanie
