Melissa's Bio

A patient tutor with infectious optimism, Melissa obtained her bachelor’s in English literature with a minor in creative writing from Oglethorpe University. Melissa is a member a Sigma Tau Delta, the National English Honor Society, and after graduation she launched into a career in child care and education. She has worked as a nanny, in childcare centers as a teacher, assistant director and director before taking time off to care for her own growing family.

Melissa has been tutoring with PrepNow’s sister brand, StudyPoint, since 2017 and has worked with students to improve their test scores. As a StudyPoint tutor, she has seen numerous students crush their score goals and had students receive scholarships after completing tutoring with her. She got into tutoring because she loved working with children and found that she took great pride in her students’ achievements. “I remember what it was like to be a student, and how important it is to be able to have that personal connection with an adult ally,” she shares. She is driven by a desire to build that personal connection with each of her students. “When a student or parent sends me a note about how I was able to bring about academic improvement or a positive change, it makes my heart swell!”

As she describes her tutoring style and teaching philosophy, Melissa focuses very heavily on reinforcing that education is a ticket to success and by relating to her students’ strengths and weaknesses. She is incredibly patient and always looks on the bright side of things. Despite majoring in English literature, she finds the math sections fun, and is easily able to relate to students who struggle with math. “I remember what it was like to be a student, and I try to mold my teaching style around what I remember as working for me as a student,” she tells.

As a student, Melissa was involved in a member of Alpha Sigma Tau in college, as well as Beta Club and National Honor Society in high school and joined every Save the Planet club she could. She is also active in her church and has volunteered regularly. Now, her hobbies include reading, logic puzzles, arts and crafts, and spending time with her family. She has also taken up gardening.
