About Mellisa

Mellisa graduated UCLA at 19 before working for a local start-up and getting her MBA. While studying for her MBA, she started working with a few students helping them create better study habits and increase their potential at school. She helped schedule her sister’s classes in college to maximize her time, while still allowing her to enjoy life as a college student and gain experience through internships. She would also proof read her essays. It was a turning point for Mellisa realizing she wanted to help many other students succeed in school while managing a rigorous extracurricular activity schedule much like she did during her school years.


My child was struggling in school because of her busy schedule with dance. Beacon Tutoring helped create a schedule for getting all her homework done in a timely manner and studying for her tests while maintaining her rigorous dance schedule. We are happy to say her grades rose and her teachers were pleased with her school performance.
Amy, Parent
Beacon Tutor is one of those rare tutor services who give the hands on attention many students need. They helped me whenever I needed, whether it was preparing for exams or reviewing my final paper or prepping for projects, they were always only a text away. Beacon Tutor not only took the time to explain things but was always so patient while helping me gain the confidence in understanding a subject.
