About Melissa

I first started tutoring in 2006. I volunteered for a church program that set up classes for adults to learn English as a second language. I taught a weekly class of roughly 10 adults with varying English speaking levels.

During college, I tutored 4 classmates for their Spanish classes. These were one on one sessions. I successfully assisted them in learning to speak Spanish as well as pass their exams at school.
I graduated with a degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology from Loyola University Chicago in 2011.

I am a native Spanish and English speaker. I read, write, and speak Spanish fluently. I have also taken Spanish classes in high school and college. I passed the Spanish AP test with the highest grade, a 5. I can assist with high school and college courses as I am familiar with their content.

I can help you learn Spanish no matter what prior learning you do or don't have. We will first determine what level of Spanish you are currently at, your expectations and goals, and set up our plan for learning.

I believe a focus on pronunciation is very important and will make sure you can be understood as you learn and speak Spanish. Once you have the pronunciation and vocabulary down, reading and writing will come very easily, one of the awesome perks of the Spanish language. Repetition and practice are also extremely important in learning a new language. In addition to meeting in person, we can also set up short times daily to check-in over text or audio messages to help remind you to practice daily what you've learned.

Please contact me with any questions! I am available weekday mornings and varying times over the weekend.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
