Melissa is great teacher. She is kind, so I can relax around her. I was having a difficult time understanding English with my poor vocabulary. She taught me many new words and American idioms. I believe that I need more basic skills, but now I know how to express my feelings. It's big progress for me!
I've only had 3 tutoring sessions with Melissa so far, and inasmuch as I have never worked with a tutor before either, these comments may be a bit premature. Having said that, I feel the sessions have been above expectations. As an adult learner, I am anxious, out of practice, and easily frustrated, but Melissa has done a great job keeping me reined in and on task. I was expecting vocabulary, and got grammar, which is, of course, the correct way to approach a new language initially. Melissa is experienced, thoughtful, and very supportive, and always comes prepared, with new ideas and resources. Melissa also leaves time to respond to questions I have, mostly from things I didn't process from the week before (did I say adult learner?), as constant review is a good thing and I need it. I am planning on working with her for as long as it takes to meet my goal of competently speaking the Spanish language.
This tutor is great pays attention to detail and answers question for her students and also answers parents questions. She is patient and kind. My son is looking forward to the next lesson.
Very hard working and very patient. Easy to communicate with and punctual . Has good knowledge base. Highly recommended to other students.
Students may provide ratings after each lesson.
