Melissa's Bio

Meticulous and patient, Melissa enjoys demystifying the intimidation academia can hold for students, especially in math and sciences. She graduated with her BA from Washington University of St. Louis, majoring in psychology with minors in geology and writing. Currently, she is working to earn an ESL degree to teach English abroad.

Inspired by her own passion for learning, Melissa began tutoring others. Her specialty is tutoring in math and sciences where she guides students through concepts and problems they previously felt intimidated by. She has also tutored high schoolers in test prep and even helps elementary students with reading.

As a tutor, Melissa prefers to guide students through concepts step-by-step while also encouraging questions. She takes the framework of concepts and shows students their interconnectedness in order to help them build from a place of familiarity to one of complete comprehension. It’s a great reward for Melissa to help students enjoy engaging with the material and go on to feel confident in their study skills for a test. During her tutorials, she strives to create a welcoming and encouraging learning environment by rewarding successes and taking the time to explain things as many times as a student needs.

While Melissa is well versed in the sciences and math, she also loves literature and writing. During high school, she was a part of her school’s literature and writing club. She writes science fiction and fantasy, and her longest work to date is over 100,000 words. Her writing has appeared in a travel guide in 2015/2016. Travel is also something she loves, and one day hopes to travel the world.
