My name is Melanie and I just moved back to New York City after living and teaching English in South Korea for a year and a half. My background is in journalism and economics so I have very good grammar and math skills. I grew up doing inventory with my dad for his business, which is essentially counting....a lot. I have done internships, written and copy edited for various publications in Connecticut and all around New York. When I was in Korea, I taught children 5-14 years old. I am especially good at working with younger students as I was primarily a kindergarten teacher there. I also have a niece and nephew I love to play with. Before I left for Korea, I received my TEFL/TESOL certification. I taught interactive communicative EFL classes to adults and evaluated by fellow students' performances during their lessons. I also tutored adolescent Irish students in creative writing while I studied abroad in Dublin, Ireland during university.
I currently work for a women's community building nonprofit in downtown Manhattan and I would really like to make some extra income by doing what I love, helping students learn, because not only do the students learn, but so do I!
