About Melissa S.

I'm a special educator, academic coach, and certified reading specialist with experience tutoring students with special needs, English Language Learners, and study skills.

Hi, my name is Melissa Scotto, “Miss Melissa” to my students.  I am currently a K-5 special education teacher, and I am a proud graduate of Johns Hopkins University, go Blue Jays!

I am a certified reading specialist, an intervention specialist with training in the Orton Gillingham method, in addition to being a special education teacher in MCPS. Through my experience I have acquired knowledge and understanding of the standards-based curriculum that students are challenged with every day and have created various ways to meet the needs of my students.

With over 13 years of professional experience working with children, I truly enjoy making learning accessible for all of my young learners.  I will work with your student to help figure out their own unique learning styles and find out what works best to help them succeed!

      Highly Recommend

      Melissa has worked with our son twice a week for the past three years and has been a HUGE help! Our son has special needs in writing and executive functioning and she has been instrumental in helping him keep up with his assignments and stay organized.. She is engaging, has a positive attitude, and has the patience to be able to meet our sons needs. We highly recommend her to any prospective parent.
