"Hi! My name is Melanie. I am currently a junior at the University of California, Irvine studying in the field of computer science and business. I began tutoring when I was attending West High School in Torrance, CA. I realized that I had a passion for aiding those in need and helping them excel to become independent learners.
I started with helping elementary school students with their homework at the local Salvation Army Afterschool Program and from there I volunteered for the Boys and Girls Club at Alexander Fleming Middle School. I helped middle school students, some autistic, with subjects varying from History to Biology to Algebra. At my high school, I also tutored my fellow high school peers in Chemistry and Algebra II.
I'm now an upper division student at UCI. Once I arrived I decided that I wanted to continue helping others so I applied for the Learning Academic Resource Center on campus. I am now a Calculus tutor at the University. In the learning center I tutor both one on one and in small groups for calculus and other math subjects.
Tutoring at the college has taught me valuable skills. I’m able to quickly gauge a student’s understanding of a subject and cater to his/her individual needs. Every student is different and I believe that every individual has the ability to succeed. My job is to figure out the way the student learns, be it visual, auditory, etc, and tailor my explanation style to help the student succeed."
