Tutor profile: Melanie V.
Certified Elementary/Middle School Teacher; Homeschool Mom
I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My one dream was to become a teacher. I worked my way through high school and college by waitressing and working in daycares and after-school programs. When I graduated in 1994 I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education with a specialty in middle school math and history. I taught in several different schools for 10 years and then had my own children and decided to stay home and homeschool them.
I have taught in preschool, second grade, combined fifth/sixth-grade classes, and combined first/second grade. I have experience with substituting in all grades K-12. I have ten years of teaching experience in the classroom and 14 years of experience teaching homeschool.
