About Melanie


Bio

I began a lifelong passion of learning foreign languages at the age of 7, and after studying both French and Spanish for 11 years I undertook a BA in Modern Arabic Studies with a Spanish minor. I traveled to Cairo, Egypt where I received a certificate to teach English as a Foreign Language and completed a year of teaching English in a private school in Cairo.
Upon discovering the rewards and a passion for teaching, I then pursued a 2 year Post Graduate Certificate to teach French to 11-18...

I began a lifelong passion of learning foreign languages at the age of 7, and after studying both French and Spanish for 11 years I undertook a BA in Modern Arabic Studies with a Spanish minor. I traveled to Cairo, Egypt where I received a certificate to teach English as a Foreign Language and completed a year of teaching English in a private school in Cairo.
Upon discovering the rewards and a passion for teaching, I then pursued a 2 year Post Graduate Certificate to teach French to 11-18 year olds and worked for a number of schools in the UK.
I was also employed by a number of agencies there and tutored French to adults and children of differing ages.
During my time in Southern California, I have been teaching home-school groups and school-aged children for the Parks and Recreation Department. I have established a great rapport with all my students and during the last 10 years, have accumulated many effective teaching resources and methods to assist my pupils during their journey of learning a foreign language.

Great tutor!

Melanie worked with my brother and me on vocabulary and pronunciation. She asked us questions in French, and we responded in kind. Whenever we got stuck on something, she gave us great explanations and allowed us to practice the subject. We look forward to continuing our weekly French lessons with her.

Great tutor

Melanie is greatly helping my son, Quinn with French. She worked with us to figure out a strategy so my son can get the most from the tutoring time and she has given him work to review for enhanced learning

Michelle, 6 lessons with Melanie

Great Tutor

I am leaning far more with Melanie's assistance then I could ever on my own. I am in college-level French with little previous experience with the language. The curriculum is dense and fast-paced and Melanie's help has been crucial. Two thumbs up!

Amazing Tutor

Amazing tutor. She is kind to my son and incredibly prepared. She has even gone to his teacher's web page to research homework assignments and tests assigned. Awesome!
