About Melany


Bio

Hi there! I’m Melany and I am a homeschooling mom. I have homeschooled all six of my children from pre-school to third grade as well as other homeschooling children in the groups we belonged to. I graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Psychology because I really love to understand how others think and feel. When it comes to learning, this is a very important passion! My first goal is always to get to know the individual child’s learning type. Some children learn better...

Hi there! I’m Melany and I am a homeschooling mom. I have homeschooled all six of my children from pre-school to third grade as well as other homeschooling children in the groups we belonged to. I graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Psychology because I really love to understand how others think and feel. When it comes to learning, this is a very important passion! My first goal is always to get to know the individual child’s learning type. Some children learn better verbally, some visually, and others through kinesthetic learning. I utilized a series of basic activities and fun tests to see which style most appeals to each child. Then, I create an individualized lesson path accordingly. This allows me, as the tutor, to successfully communicate with each child in order to achieve the goal at hand. In my experience, it also allows for a child to feel self confident and establishes a love of learning. Learning is sometimes challenging and also rewarding when the challenges are overcome. I can help every step of the way!
I have also taught religious education for over 5 years. The more students I am exposed to, the more I grow and strive to reach their needs. I have taken online classes in childhood education, volunteered at a Montessori school for a year, received certification as a substitute teacher in Loudoun County, coached kids in soccer/swimming and track, and have recently become a nationally certified Personal Trainer. Currently, I am getting my recertification in CPR/ First Aid. I believe there’s always room to grow and that makes me a better tutor. I love to laugh, have fun and get the job done!

No matter what the challenge may be, I know I can empower children to love to learn. Every child is unique and has a unique learning style and I believe that is what makes him or her awesome. I am patient, caring and at the same time very task oriented . Learning is fun- we just need to find the right path for each child so they feel the same.

I used various techniques to help children learn.

Hi there! I’m Melany and have a passion for teaching and training children in fitness. I have been a trainer for over three years and have worked at Golds Gym, in individuals home and even at outdoor parks all around Virginia. Throughout my life I have coached and taught with children from three years old to eighteen in many different sports. I love playing games involving physically activities, fine motor movements and cardiovascular and stretch training techniques. We are all at different levels and we are all able to build on those if we work as a team. I can’t wait to meet you!
