About Melissa

I teach 7th and 8th grade English in a small town. I have done so for the past 11 years and I absolutely love it! During this time, I have regularly tutored students of all ages from elementary grades to college students. I love helping to facilitate learning and will help you not only fully understand your coursework, but I will help you develop a love of learning.

I have a Bachelor's Degree from Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and I also have have 18 graduate honors in this discipline from Southern Methodist University. I continue to stay abreast of current Political changes both in the US as well as around the world. I understand how to incorporate current political issues into a student-friendly understanding of Political Science.

I love discussing civics and teaching students how to make connections to the past. I have success in guiding students through an understanding of History, while making it pertinent to their life. I also enjoy helping students visualize History by making everything from laws and amendments seem just as necessary as basic history facts that most people understand--I have successfully taught all aspects of English for the past 11 years. I am available any day and really any time. Weekends work as well!
