About Melissa

Hello! My name is Melissa and I'm a native Spanish speaker hoping to help kids become comfortable with expressing themselves in this beautiful language. For the majority of the time, I work for a nonprofit that works with indigent immigrants in the New York city area. I have a background in political science, non profit sector but also volunteered as a teacher for a year in Florida with kids from 5-6.

I believe through conversation and cultural immersion a language can be best learned. It isn't only about knowing a language textually, but also becoming familiar with culture, traditions and history that enable us to be better speakers and feel more comfortable with a foreign language. I look forward to learning together!

Spanish was the first language I was exposed to. Having lived in Ecuador for 10 years established a foundation of the language and culture within me. Though I moved to the U.S. when I was only 10 years old, I was able to keep the language and traditions while assimilating to the North American culture. Being exposed to both worlds, I am thankful for being able to interpret both languages and cultures and hope to share that along!

Through the work I've done, Spanish has always been present in my life. Being raised in the U.S., I understand the difficulties that come along with thinking and switching from one language to another. However; with patience and practice, being able to communicate in different languages is truly rewarding.
