About Melizza

My name is Melizza and I am a certified K-8 teacher (CA) who worked for the Los Angeles Unified School District for 10 years as a classroom teacher, Language Arts Instructor, and Math Coach before moving to Washington state. I have worked as a Trainer in child care centers (Ft Lewis-McChord), a tutor for a private company, and conducted trainings to help other teachers sharpen their skills with facilitating instruction. Currently, I write elementary math curriculum for different education-focused companies. I also have experience scoring essays for standardized tests, including SATs. My strengths are not limited to the subjects I can help with but the patience, skill, and experiences I have working with children from ages 6 months to 12 years old.

Because I work mainly from home, I have flexibility with the time I can help your child(ren) progress academically and gain the confidence he/she needs to continue to progress. This includes online tutoring sessions.

Please feel free to contact me with questions to make sure I am "the right fit" for your needs.

Thanks and I look forward to meeting you!

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 have an active K-8 Multiple Subject credential (CA-issued), with supplemental endorsement in English and CLAD (English as second language support). I currently write elementary math curriculum for different education-focused companies (contract) and score essays for language arts and math. I have worked in one-on-one and small group settings, specifically tutoring all subjects in both a center environment and independently. I believe I have the patience, knowledge, and experience to work with children on a variety of subjects.

Elementary Math

I have 10 years elementary instruction experience, three of those years as a Math Coach. I also have been writing elementary math curriculum for close to 10 years.

Phonics

In obtaining my BS, teaching credential, and post-graduate coursework, I have taken coursework in phonics and helping children develop reading and writing skills. Courses included Reading and Cognitive Process and Emergent Literacy (CSLA). I also have tutored children preparing for kindergarten, tailoring instruction which included making connections from letter with sound and common sight words (leveled).
