Personalized tutoring from a certified teacher with over two decades of experience teaching in international AP and IB curriculum schools.
I love when I see students grow their confidence.
Excellent! Melinda is on time, supportive and is helping to build confidence in my son.
I no longer need your services
In an initial meeting, we discuss what the student has as his or her goals for our meeting times and for the coursework that is being undertaken. We talk about ways I can help and expectations for our sessions. I try to elicit information from their past coursework, attitudes toward mathematics, areas of confidence and areas where confidence is lacking where we can work together to strengthen academic foundations and confidence.
I have 25 years of teaching high school math courses ranging from prealgebra, algebra, geometry, precalculus, AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB, International Baccalaureate Math Studies, SL Math, and HL Math courses.
I ask $40-$50 per hour depending on distance of driving from my home and any preparations or materials demanded for the tutoring sessions.
I started teaching directly out of university, always having had a desire to help young people discover their confidence and capabilities and to find direction and joyful anticipation for their futures.
I actually have taught students from all over the world in 7 different English-language international schools in East Asia, South and Central America, Africa, the Middle East, and in the USA.
I actually love the outdoors and had the wonderful opportunity of backpacking 4 days on the Escalante River in Utah with 9th graders in my school. Carrying all our own gear, cooking camp meals and eating together, enduring mosquitoes and weariness, enjoying grandeur and beauty - it was a shared experience of pushing our perceptions of our own limits and building trust in community.
