About Meliesa

Meliesa is an Educational Therapist, an Academic Coach, and award-winning writer and speaker.

She got her license as an Educational Therapist and worked at learning centers in San Francisco and Seattle before moving home to open FocalPoint in Wenatchee.

Meliesa has been honored for her many academic achievements as a Presidential Leadership Scholar, and has been honored at the American Academy of Achievement and the Banquet of the Golden Scroll.

She obtained a Bachelor's of Arts with High Honors from the Honors College of the University of Montana in 1995.

During the years Meliesa was being honored for her achievements in language arts, she was hiding a math disability and struggling with ADD. Meliesa used the methods she teaches to overcome ADD and learn math.

She was eventually able to “make her worst thing her best thing,” and is the author of Math Mapping. Today, Meliesa would rather teach math than anything else, because she has been there.

If Meliesa looks familiar to you, it might be because she is the Red Clown of the Wenatchee Youth Circus.

Meliesa is an excellent communicator. As a person who struggled with math -- she understands where students get confused, and can help them understand. Many teachers just show one example after another, and the student is still confused. She can explain it so the student understands.

If you want your best math grade ever -- schedule some time with her.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 for 15 years in a private learning center. I can teach all aspects of this course, and help the student understand what they will need for Geometry, Algebra 2 and Trigonometry.

Elementary Math

I have been teaching Elementary Math from Kinder to Algebra for 15 years in a private learning center. I have visual strategies to learn the math facts, including the times tables. I use Math Mapping, which is much faster and easier for kids than trying to memorize the answers.

English

I was an Honors English student in University, and took all the required courses for an Honors Degree. My writing won numerous awards at the local, state and national levels. I have been teaching English reading and writing in a learning center for 15 years.

Geometry

I have been teaching Geometry in a private learning center environment for the past 15 years. My skill is in translating math ideas into simple language so that students understand. Geometry is designed so that a student must look at the images, write the algebra problem, and solve. It is essentially a logic class. I teach my students the logic that makes the class understandable to them, and sets them up for success in Algebra II and beyond.

Grammar

I have used a number of different book and workbook systems to teach grammar. I have taught grammar both in a learning center and as a homeschool mom.
I have been teaching grammar, from the Elementary to the High School level, in a learning center for 15 years.

My undergraduate degree was primarily a writing curriculum, and I graduated University with High Honors from the Honors College.

I can teach all the elements of grammar, including:
Parts of Speech
Syntax
Punctuation

Reading

I have been teaching reading for 15 years in a private learning center. I have strategies for focusing, fluency and comprehension to help struggling readers. My strategies include ways for kids to get success, even when they are just learning to read.
