"My name is Melissa. I am a former 8th-grade math specialist and recently retired to be a private homeschool teacher. I truly believe that ANYONE can be a math person, you just have to be taught in a way that you understand it. I have taught up to and including Geometry in both the general education setting as well as the remedial setting. I am excellent at breaking down and scaffolding math problems in such a way that anyone can master the skills needed to be successful. I pride myself on knowing that I can make math fun, enjoyable and less stressful for all parties included. When I taught in the classroom, many of my students and parents said that I finally made math make sense and on multiple occasions, the parents told me that their child's year with me was the first year that their kids did not need a tutor.

I specialize in breaking down math concepts into small, understandable steps. My years teaching in the special education setting helped develop strategies to help students understand, remember and confidently answer questions. I give students the skills necessary to break apart math problems into manageable pieces. I also like to keep strong communication between the students' teachers, in order to stay on top of the concepts and reinforce what they are learning in class.

Let me help lessen the math stress in your house!" less...
