About Melissa

Math can be an extremely intimidating topic to learn if abstract ideas seem to accommodate to the math lovers only? I feel differently. Math is for anyone and everyone who wants to be successful and open their minds beyond three dimensions. I turn the abstract to concrete ideas, and work at your pace to learn the math you struggle to do.

I am currently a middle school math teacher for Hampton City Schools, but in the process to complete my endorsement for Algebra I. I tutor middle school math, Algebra I and Algebra II, SAT Math, and math test preparation.

My objective during our sessions begins with assessing your strengths and weaknesses academically to accommodate to your learning style. We will eventually develop a study habit to set your priority level for success. Also, we can find available resources online or at the library. The more you learn from other available resources, the more you can establish your style to learn and remember the material. Towards the last session, we will set a goal you would like to meet after your success. Let's develop a love for math and understand math in your own way.

I look forward to working with you to become successful and appreciate math in a different manner.


I patiently and diligently work to plan the lesson according to your needs. I will make sure you understand the math in a concrete manner, yet challenge you to critically think of math in a different tone.

I have taken the ASVAB and scored a 70 without studying.

I am available after 4 P.M. Monday - Friday during the school year, and am available after 12 P.M. during summer school hours.

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.

ACT Math

I will prepare a lesson beforehand that consists of content area covered on the ACT assessment Math section, problem solving strategies for completing the Assessment quickly and optimize as many points as possible for each question, and useful study tips and time management tools to prepare for the ACT in October between now and during the school year.

Have tutored Algebra 2 for over 5 years at my church and around my area.
