I have taught English with Long Beach Unified School District since the 1990s and I've also tutored both math and English for about as long. I have a California teaching credential, a BA in English and a master's degree in education. I am most proud of the way I make math more attainable and how I help bring the classics to life. One student told me I inspired her love of reading. I also took a student from a D to an A in Algebra I. I have a love of learning and young people, tutoring gives me the opportunity to celebrate both.
Melanie is very personable and established rapport with my son right away. She is patient, thorough and makes learning fun. My son looks forward to their time together!
I introduce literary/academic terms in the context of literary and informational text. I help students build vocabulary in context and practice with games. We discuss and explore literary themes and subjects.
I have a bachelors in English and a masters in education. I am a California credentialed English teacher and I have taught English for over 25 years with Long Beach Unified School District.
