About Melody

I live in the Pepperell / Groton Massachusetts area but I grew up in Upstate New York, just 5 minutes from Canada. I also spent six years (2007-2013) living in and teaching English in France, I studied the French language at a private school in Lyon and am fluent in written and spoken French. I also have a lot of experience with the French culture and people because of the years I spent living and working there.

I also lived in Texas for many years and worked as a paramedic in Dallas, which is also where I did my Emergency Medicine-Paramedic studies. I worked in healthcare both at a Medical University and as an EMT-Paramedic for the state of Texas, where I was also responsible for Paramedic class instruction and was a skills/testing examiner for the state.

My hobbies include painting, gardening, music, antiques (I own my own store in Groton), cultures, history, and I also collect books, most from the 18th century. I am an organized and responsible person, and I have more than eight years experience teaching ESL as well as other subjects. I believe that learning should be interesting and fun, as well as educational. I also feel that each student is different and has different needs so I am more than willing to adapt to each student and situation.

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.

English

I worked in Lyon, France for a world speaking English school. I spent six years teaching English to French professionals there for six years. I have continued teaching here in NY over the last two years to people of all ages.

ESL/ESOL

I received my ESL training certificate in January 2007. I then worked in Lyon, France for a company teaching English to French professionals there for six years. I now teach professionally to students of all ages.

French

I took one year (700 hours) of French at a private school in Lyon France (copy of my course hours and grading are available). I also lived and worked just outside of Lyon from January 2007 to June of 2013.

I was able to travel to pretty much every area of France while I was there. I have experience not only with the language but the French people, the culture, cuisine and history.

Grammar

I have eight years professional experience teaching English grammar to people of all ages in France and the USA. This included all parts of grammar and at every level from beginner to advanced. Grammar is one of the most important parts of learning English.

Literature

I have spent many years studying both American and English literature. I have a collection of 18th-century French books and am currently working on collecting some in English as well. My love for literature includes the classics like Dickens and Saint-Exupéry, which are the types of literature I best like to teach.

Reading

I have eight years professional experience teaching reading skills to people of all ages in France and the USA. This included reading at every level, from beginner to advanced. I have always incorporated current and interesting texts into reading lessons but also take great pleasure in reading the more advanced classics.

Spelling

I have eight years professional experience teaching English to people of all ages in France and the USA. Spelling is a fundamental part of learning a new language. I believe learning can be fun and spelling is no exception. Finding current and interesting topics and incorporating learned skills into classes is a great way to improve spelling skills.

TOEFL

I worked in Lyon, France for a company teaching English to French professionals for six years, including TOEFL preparation. My last student who took the exam scored 960 points of a possible 1000.

Vocabulary

I have eight years experience teaching English to people of all ages in France and the USA as a professional. This included general subjects like grammar, vocabulary, writing, spelling and reading. I have also taught specialty subjects like giving a presentation, business English and international English among others.
