About Melissa

I recently graduated from BYU with a business management major and a math minor. I have been helping those around me understand math since I was in 6th grade. Adapting the material to make sense to others is something I am passionate about! Finding ways for math to 'click' for anyone at any math level is something that I find extremely rewarding!

In the last few years, I have tutored college students through college algebra and calculus as well as helped elementary, middle, and high school students with topics from addition/subtraction to geometry to cryptology. I truly believe that math concept explanations can be catered to suit any individual's learning style and that math can become natural and intuitive for anyone! After students gain a thorough understanding of arithmetic and the basics of algebra, the math classes beyond that can be conquered with reasonable work and effort. Math doesn't have to be overwhelming - I will do my best to make complicated concepts understandable!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I love helping children become excited about learning! I have helped many elementary students better understand and solidify math basics so they are set up for future math success. I have also helped younger siblings and other elementary students improve their reading and vocabulary skills. I believe it is important to help students gain a strong academic foundation and a love for learning while they are young. These academic skills and interests will ultimately allow stundents to be the most successful they can be.

Absolutely amazing! — Melissa truly did an amazing job teaching our daughter algebra and geometry in a way she could understand. In just a few sessions, she understood the principles her geometry teacher hadn't been able to teach her all year! We highly recommend Melissa,and would definitely use her again! ...
