Tutor Personal Information

Name: Ms Melinda M.
Gender: Female   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I use a scaffolding approach with tutoring where I provide students with support and model tasks for them. The goal is to gradually remove the scaffold as they move toward independence. I always encourage my students to ask questions and to take ownership of their own learning. I identify students' specific strengths and weaknesses and create a personalized tutoring plan tailored to their individual needs.
