UPDATE: NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR 2021
I am a teacher at a local secondary school. I have taught since 2015. I have also worked as a local home tutor since 2012.
I received an OP 2/ATAR 98.50. I am a qualified member of MENSA (IQ above 140/99th percentile).
In 2015, I completed a Bachelor of Education with a GPA of 6.5 and first-class honours. During this time I was a prominent leader in the university community, and have extensive work and volunteer experience. I have worked with young people around Australia and overseas, having travelled to China and Bhutan on study tours, in addition to my degree-specific work experience.
I commenced a Doctor of Philosophy (Education) degree in 2017, and was shortlisted for the TUH Health Fund Dr Roger Hunter OAM Excellence in Beginning to Teach Award in 2020.
During tutoring sessions, I am available to assist with learning new topics, reviewing and revision, as well as assessment checking and marking. I am happy to tutor primary and secondary school students. You are welcome to message me regarding any types of tutoring.

Melissa has been tutoring my two sons in years 10 & 12 over terms 3 & 4 2020. The improvement and confidence she has given them is fantastic. Her knowledge of the critical assessable work, her teaching experience, her reliability and her practical application is tremendous. My only regret is not engaging her into their studies sooner.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Mel for tutoring 2 of my kids. Mel is delightful, and knowledgeable. She has helped my kids with their assignments so on. A great help for my kids. We would highly recommend her as a tutor.

Melissa has exceptionally demonstrated the capacity to encourage and motivate my son to engage in his subject area. She has provided quality intellectual tutoring that has inspired my son’s interest. Her professionalism and commitment were outstanding. She was extremely thorough, consistent and careful while tutoring my son. Melissa is highly talented. She regularly liaises with me and this has fostered a strong connection between parents-teachers that manifests the development of my son. I highly recommend Melissa as a tutor and wish her all the best.

Mel has tutored my two kids for 4 years (helping my son from year 4 to year 7) and has done an amazing job! She got to know them, catered to their learning styles and had a very flexible timetable. She is well priced for her efforts, and often brought extra resources to help them out. Would recommend!

Melissa is an attentive tutor who goes above and beyond to cater for the needs of her students.
Her current curriculum knowledge is excellent and she strives to devise innovative and engaging ways to teach concepts to students she works with.
I highly recommend Melissa as a tutor for ANY student.
