Melissa

what makes her an awesome tutor

I can relate to the statement “no such thing as math people, just good teachers”. Growing up I struggled with math until I found an awesome math teacher that caused me to go from the bottom of the class to the top. I can definitely relate to struggling with math and have come to love math so much! Since then I have developed so many tricks and tips, and if one method isn’t working for a student then I will try every other way until they feel more confident and competent!
