## About Mrs. Wyatt

__About my education/teaching experience:__

I attended college at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, TX. Though my original intent was to end up in the medical field, I started working at Sylvan Learning Center part time, tutoring kids in math and fell in love with teaching math. So in 2003, I graduated from HSU with a BBS in Mathematics, minor in English and certified to teach grades 8-12 in the state of Texas.

Since I graduated college, I have taught in the public and private school setting and have also homeschooled my own children for a season. While homeschooling, I had the privilege of being a part of a faith-based cooperative homeschool group, plugging in with them to enrich our homeschooling experience. I met so many great homeschooling families, learning all about the diversity of the homeschool experience.

I joined HSML in 2019 alongside my sister and cousin and love the sweet community I have found here. It is a privilege to partner with homeschool and charter school families to provide quality math instruction!

__About me and my family:__

I love music and all creative arts. I've always tested right in the middle as an introvert/extrovert. I love people, but I love to get away and find a quiet place to read, work a puzzle or play piano. I lead worship for our church and love ministering alongside my husband as he pastors. I genuinely love math, teaching and the students/families I get to know along the way!

My husband is my best friend! He challenges me to think differently and loves to give selflessly and sacrificially! He loves woodworking and the outdoors as well as his job as a pastor at our local church. He has been in church ministry in various forms for over a decade, including 3 years of church planting in Massachusetts. (Side note: If you've never been to New England, it should be high on your list of places to visit, whether for education purposes or just vacation! There is SO much history and beauty there and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity of homeschooling in an area where so much of our early American history took place.)

My oldest son is in the 9th grade and loves football, track and field, and music. My second son is in the 7th grade and loves football, baseball, fishing and anything involving the arts. My daughter is in the 2nd grade and loves school, cheer and singing! My youngest son is 4 and is buddy throughout the days at home, making me laugh and keeping me on my toes!

We love serving our community and opening up our home! Our family loves to camp, watch movies, and serve our community together. We prioritize having meals together as often as possible and try to find creative ways to connect throughout all the seasons that come our way.

__One more thought:__

I have learned that no matter what walk of life one is traveling, the ability to use mathematics to open doors for hobbies, for careers and for life in general is worth the struggle and discipline that is required. I love that math transcends culture, race and economic status! And I love being able to partner with and serve families from all over the US in their education journey!

## Parents tell me:

She's kind, nice and wants you to succeed! Also, not only to succeed but enjoy the math process. Even though they don't meet in traditional classroom setting my daughter has built a relationship with Ms. Wyatt. She doesn't hesitate to reach out and ask questions.

Mrs. Wyatt cares about her students and encourages them to persevere. She explains the course material clearly to her students and communicates well with parents.

I really appreciate that Mrs. Wyatt will sometimes ask them questions/ do things that allow them to earn a bonus point here and there. She also offered Zelle as a payment option, which is fantastic.

She is very knowledgeable in this subject and explains it in a very helpful way that makes my student feel confident.... Also very organized and friendly and teaches with enthusiasm!!!!

Melissa Wyatt works with both the parents and the students to meet their independent and mutual needs.

Mrs. Wyatt is encouraging, creative, and student focused - she makes sure students are engaged and learning.

Mrs. Wyatt is very on top of things, organized, and has a high level of integrity. When there was an issue with my daughter potentially cheating on a test, she addressed the situation in a compassionate, fair, and supportive manner.

She is enthusiastic and fun to learn from, but strict enough to keep the class in order and engaged.

She is patient with the students and passionate about the subject.

She is easy to work with. Super encouraging.
