« I have known Melissa for almost 10 years, and the one overarching theme to her teaching has been to instill confidence in her students and that she modifies her teaching style to suit the individual learner and does not expect the learner to adapt to a rigid style of teaching. Melissa's passion for teaching is unsurpassed in my opinion and whomever hires her as a tutor will surely learn a great deal. »

English teacher with 10+ years experience with middle/high schoolers, and college students

Methodology

I am an eager and energetic English teacher with over 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience including teaching secondary students (grades 6-12), in college, and English as a Foreign Language to students in Seoul, South Korea. While teaching at a Seoul women's university, I even tutored a nun working on her Ph.D.

I have a dual master's degree in English (specializing in American Literature) and Library Science. I graduated magna cum laude at Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in Education.

I believe with hard work and a positive attitude that every student can succeed. The reason I enjoy tutoring is because it is a chance to work individually. As a public school teacher, I never felt there was enough time to help on a 1:1 basis in the classroom; tutoring allows this opportunity to help make a difference.

As a qualified writing and reading tutor, I can help with grammar, writing papers, reading comprehension and literary works, as well as "real world" writing such as resumes, speeches, and college essays. I have also helped students in ACT and SAT test prep skills.

Background

I have 10+ years of teaching experience, including:

6 years teaching English to Korean students in Seoul (including tutoring a nun for help on her PhD)
2 1/2 years as a certified English teacher in Florida (grades 6-12)
1 semester of reading and writing tutoring to low-income students in Phoenix, Arizona
5 semesters of "field experience" and observations as part of Arizona State University's Education program
Writing tutor, test proctor, and notetaker for students with disabilities at Arizona State University
Weekly feature columnist for campus newspaper
Technical writing graduate assistant for 1 semester

I have known Melissa for almost 10 years, and the one overarching theme to her teaching has been to instill confidence in her students and that she modifies her teaching style to suit the individual learner and does not expect the learner to adapt to a rigid style of teaching. Melissa's passion for teaching is unsurpassed in my opinion and whomever hires her as a tutor will surely learn a great deal.
