Having had tutors throughout my academic career, I understand the huge impact ...
After many cancellations of the SAT my daughter had an SAT ?hang-over?. We decided to get her a tutor and found Mel. She gave our daughter back her confidence and quickly recognized her strengths and weaknesses and worked from there. She?s taking the SAT?s this Saturday and is very confident! Thank you Mel!

My son thought Mel did a great job focusing on what he needed to focus on for the SAT. He was very happy with the session and wants to continue tutoring with her.

Mel is very professional. Her follow up is stellar. My daugther was amazed at how she was able to explain things so simple for her to understand. Her soft style really works to help the student feel at ease and develop confidence.

Mel P. really helps our son?s high school English. She is very professional and found our son?s problems very well. She has great personality as well. My son is very picky, but he enjoys studying with her.
- Yoshiteru K. from Los Angeles, CA
Mel is fabulous. In just two prep sessions my daughter scores on pre test have raised by over 200 points. Today is her final session before the SAT tomorrow but I?m confident she will make her target score with the strategies Mel has taught her. My daughter feels much more confident and prepared since working with Mel and is ready for tomorrow?s test. I?ll update when I receive her scores. Thank you so much, Mel!

Not only does Mel know her subjects, her rapport with my 8th grade son was amazing. She motivated him to actually get ahead of his homework and projects. He went from almost flunking out and not graduating to getting qualified in less than 1 month. Of course it was 3x a week, but we?ll worth it. Best tutor ever!
- Jonathon B. from Beverly Hills, CA
Mel is great at relating info and little tips/tricks. I am preparing for SAT?s and feel much more confident with Mel?s help. Great personality, and effective teaching methods. I highly recommend her for your tutoring needs. - Maddie

Our son struggled with Algebra 1 last year?this year with Algebra 2 we decided to get a tutor. Mel has had a couple lessons so far, our son is really starting to get a handle on it! Will continue to use and recommend Mel!
- Karen M. from Camarillo, CA
Mel is a very patient and brilliant in her subject matter. Very professional, timely in returning messages and generous with her time. We are very lucky to have found her. We absolutely recommend her.
- Benedetta C. from Westlake Village, CA
Mel has been so effective with helping our daughter that she has caught up with her work and no longer needs a tutor as of today. She had gotten so far behind, but with Mel's patient teaching style, she was able to work more quickly and effectively and finally "gets" math! Thanks Mel and thanks Wyzant for another success story!
- Nancy P. from Ventura, CA
Mel helped me review polynomials, identifying maximums and minimums, etc. She was easy to connect with and was helpful. We had planned on an in person session, but she got sick and so we had it online instead. That worked out okay, but I think I'll prefer the in person type once she feels better!
- John D. from Newbury Park, CA
Mel has the ability to observe and focus on the study habits of our child and adjust her strategies accordingly. A great tutor with patience, diligence, promptness, thoroughness and trustworthiness above and beyond any duty or contract. She is a real teacher, a real tutor, a real guider for the student seeking to discover what they are capable of doing in the quest for college applications.
- Scott C. from Oak View, CA
My daughter has now had two sessions with Mel, working on Algebra. She is very patient and asks great leading questions, allowing my daughter to come to the conclusion of the problem herself. She has contacted us prior to the sessions asking for examples of current week?s assignments so that she can come to the session prepared. I appreciate her efforts to be prepared and utilize her time during the session very efficiently.
- Andi C. from Camarillo, CA
We can't say enough wonderful things about Mel! She is doing an awesome job teaching our 4th grade daughter new concepts and helping with her confidence. We highly recommend her!
- Doug A. from Camarillo, CA
I was very impressed with Mel. I was looking for a tutor who can help my son in most subjects, and also help him get organized. She is very patient, bright and enthusiastic. Plus, most importantly, she engages him, and gets him to think. While working on an essay, she let him come up with ideas, as opposed to suggesting ideas.
