I have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction specializing in elementary education. I have taught all elementary grades and specialize in bridging gaps in all academic areas. My philosophy is that every child can learn at their own pace and in their own way.
In my years as a teacher and tutor I have been able to move students from below to on grade level. I always try to find what interests the student and play games and activities to keep them engaged. I love working one on one with a student and helping them have confidence in learning.

Jack did not like to read. Melissa found books on his level and to his interest that he begged me to work with her each week. She was patient and encouraging to him. She helped so much!8 months ago
Allison was two grade levels behind in math and Melissa helped her bridge her gap. Instead of working on grade level, they started where Allison was struggling and learned different strategies. She no longer hates math!8 months ago
Melissa was an amazing tutor! She had great experience working with my special needs child. She was very patient and gave him the breaks he needed. He worked very hard and moved up reading levels in no time because she worked on his own pace!8 months ago
