During her undergraduate career, she served as a Trustee Leader Scholar, for which she led two community service programs involving underserved or at risk youth. Melanie implemented a volunteer-based Reading Buddy program at the Astor Home for Children in Rhinebeck, NY. Astor is a residential treatment center for traumatized or abused children with emotional, behavioral, and developmental challenges. She personally worked one-on-one and in groups with the Astor kids, heading activities including reading, creative writing, and poetry. Melanie also has experience working with gifted students with excellent academic backgrounds. In 2006, she worked as an Administrative Assistant for the Summer Institute for the Gifted, an academic summer program for gifted children, at both the Princeton and Drew University campuses (where I worked with grades 5-12). She has tutored middle school, high school, and college students in subjects such as math, French, social studies, flamenco (Spanish dance), grammar (for English as a Second Language students as well as native speakers), and essay writing.
Melanie honors the adage of the “give a man a fish and feed him for a day, but teach and man to fish and feed him for a lifetime” proverb. Her teaching philosophy involves allowing students to find answers themselves. She works to help tutees learn methods of clarity, precision, and organization that will help them express themselves creatively yet clearly.
