About Melanie

As a professional writer, storyteller, and world traveler, I've become a master at communication and words use. As you will see, I have a wide range of work and life experiences that have shaped me into an open-minded person, a great teacher, and a fun-loving soul. Not only did I teach ESL in Chile for awhile, I also taught a wide range of subjects and activities before that.

I was a raft guide, ski instructor, Outward Bound Wilderness Instructor, climbing guide, and sea kayaking/canoe instructor. If there's one thing I'm great at, it's showing people how to do things they're uncomfortable with. Having been trained in improv and comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC, I'm able to use these skills to make the learning environment more fun for everyone. Humor helps people remember things way better than boring lessons do. I look forward to meeting and teaching each and every one of you.

I have years of teaching, traveling, writing, and public speaking experience.

I have never let fear stop me, but rather motivate me. I believe you can do anything you really set your mind to. Let me help you overcome your fears and impress yourself with your new skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

In addition to being a leader, guide, and teacher of large groups of people (as an Outward Bound Instructor, white water raft guide, ski instructor, substitute teacher, etc), I have also been performing comedy professionally for ten years. Seven of those years have been as a storyteller. Sometimes this meant talking in front of audiences of up to 300 people live and 1.3 million listeners via podcasts. I've also won The Moth three times. I'm excellent at public speaking and have coached countless others in overcoming their fears of speaking in front of audiences.
