Melody is a current undergraduate student at the University of Virginia studying Elementary Education in the School of Education. She has always had a passion for teaching children and helping young students learn and understand the various subjects they are taught in school. She has had experience as both an English and a Math tutor for elementary school students as well as serving as a program assistant at Center for Talented Youth (CTY). Watching students learn and grow in their understanding of what is being taught and apply it themselves, especially math, is one of Melody's favorite things about teaching. She is very excited for her third summer with Fairfax Collegiate as a math instructor!
