About Melissa

I am passionate about helping international students learn English well so that they can be successful in their academic studies. I have a BA in Intercultural Studies and an MA in TESOL. My ten years' of teaching experience includes educating students all over the globe including in Rwanda, Indonesia, Turkey and Hungary. Before the lessons I will try to understand your learning goals and help you achieve them in a fun, interactive way. For example, if we are working on the skill of listening I will bring in an audio article on a topic of interest to you, and we will use that to help you improve your listening skills.

I have taught ESL to a variety of age groups including children and adults, but I prefer to teach high school students, college students and adults. In the past I have taught both TOEFL and IELTS preparation courses and am happy to help students work towards passing those exams. Additionally, I can help students master listening, reading, writing or speaking.

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

I have a MA in TESOL and experience teaching ESL in several countries including: Hungary, Turkey, Indonesia, Rwanda and USA.

IELTS

I have been tutoring in IELTS preparation for more than five years and have successfully helped students prepare for this exam. There are many IELTS preparation tools available on the market, but I prefer to utilize Barron's preparation book which includes practice exams. I enjoy helping students achieve their goal of passing this exam!
