About Melissa

Are you learning Spanish or English? I'm an experienced teacher in both of these languages, and I'd love to help you out! I teach all levels, from the basics to intermediate and advanced, and I teach learners with diverse goals ranging from conversation, travel, and academic or career-oriented goals.

My tutoring style is learner-centered. Language learning requires the learner to practice, and to do so in a variety of ways including listening, speaking, reading, and writing. I cover all of these as I take my students from introduction, to structured practice, to more open practice that better mimics real communicative situations, helping you to build confidence at each level. I love learning languages myself and I have a keen intuition into the language-learning process. Please check out my qualifications and contact me to get started!

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.

ESL/ESOL

In addition to years of experience teaching English to speakers of other languages, I have a B.A. in Linguistics, and a certificate of English language teaching from Bridge Linguatec. I work with people at all levels from beginners to those improving their English to reach academic or career goals.

Grammar

As an educator in a community college adult education program, grammar is my favorite subject to teach. With a background in descriptive linguistics, I'm adept at breaking down grammar in a way that students can easily grasp.

Spanish

My affinity for Spanish began at a young age and led me to a B.A. in modern languages with a Spanish concentration (and a second major in linguistics). It also took me abroad to the other side of the equator, and has kindled valuable friendships with Spanish speakers. I'm intuitive in the language-learning process, something I've garnered from years of language teaching and from learning languages myself.
