About Melissa


Bio

Hello! I'm Melissa, an American ESL teacher who specializes in writing and speaking.

After teaching abroad in the classroom for several years, I switched to online teaching so that I’d have time to work as a freelance writer, too. I have worked with many students and clients over the years, and I now specialize in teaching writing and speaking to adult non-native English speakers. I hold a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in English, a CELTA, and a graduate certificate in TESOL.

I can help...

Hello! I'm Melissa, an American ESL teacher who specializes in writing and speaking.

After teaching abroad in the classroom for several years, I switched to online teaching so that I’d have time to work as a freelance writer, too. I have worked with many students and clients over the years, and I now specialize in teaching writing and speaking to adult non-native English speakers. I hold a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in English, a CELTA, and a graduate certificate in TESOL.

I can help you:

-Speak confidently
-Translate in your head less
-Write more accurately
-Build your vocabulary
-And more

I provide all course materials, including games, activities, and homework. All lessons are tailored to your interests and level. We can also work on any materials you have, from school or from work.

I offer a free 15-minute meeting before we start, so that I can understand more about your goals and needs.

I request that lessons must be cancelled at least 6 hours in advance.

Thank you!

Very nice and friendly

Melissa was very nice and friendly, which made me feel comfortable and encouraged. She asked me what I wanted to learn and prepared materials for the class. She also replied to my message very quickly.

She creates the illusion that I am good at English

Her effective materials make English easy and fun. And I am looking forward to the next class. She is the first teacher to give me confidence that I can speak English well.
