Melanie is a wonderful tutor! She helped my learning disabled son bring a failing Math grade up to a B. She's gentle, humorous and showed appreciation for my son's unique gifts.
Melanie is terrific. She is tutoring my learning disabled son in math once or twice a week. She is remarkably diligent and patient. She works a significant amount of extra time in advance of the tutoring sessions in reviewing the assignments, and sometimes, following the tutoring sessions, in e-mailing with my son additional problems for him to work on and in answering questions that he has. My son likes her and works hard with her. Couldn't ask for more.
I wrote the above paragraph after Melanie's first few sessions with my son. Now, several months have passed and the semester has ended, during which time Melanie continued to tutor my son twice a week. My son ended up getting a B in the class, which amazed and delighted us. My son needed to pass this class as a graduation requirement, and before the semester began, some folks at the school -- who were well-intentioned -- cautioned us that they didn't think he was likely to be able to pass the class. He would not have succeeded without Melanie. It bears repeating that we could not have asked for more.
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.

I am a graduate of the University of Virginia where I received a BS in Computer Engineering. Discrete Math was one of the courses I had to enroll in, and I passed this course with an A. I also was the class grader as a part-time job after passing the class, for the professor.
I currently tutor students of all Math subjects as well as some general subjects for K-6th. I currently volunteer at my church where I tutor children of all ages and subjects. Recently I have worked with a Kindergarten student in Reading, a 4th grade student in Math and Writing, and a 5th grader in Math.
I am a UVA grad with a BS in Computer Engineering. I currently work full-time as a Technical Consultant with a focus on Microsoft products.
