This is how 17 referees rated Dr. Melissa:
I am able to help students with a range of math skills from middle school math to pre-algebra and algebra. I love working as a math tutor because it gives me the chance to help students in a direct way. I am an energetic instructor who is passionate about helping students reach for their full potential. During sessions, I can help students explore the most difficult material for them in ways that help them learn best.
I attended the University of Oklahoma and earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Also, I have a Ph.D. In Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Oklahoma. I also have ten years of experience volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters where I won the "Big Sis" award for positive leadership.
As a math tutor, I strive to motivate students in personal ways and connect what they are learning to their lives. Because learning is a lifelong process, I work hard to communicate clearly and help students to fully understand what they are learning.
