About Melissa

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor's degree in Global Management. Before I moved to AZ to start my Bachelor's degree I worked at a language school in Mexico teaching English, where I learned Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. Applied to a language (for example) I taught students, kids and adults, to process English in different areas; music, visual, verbal, math, interpersonal, naturalistic. This made me realize that absolutely everyone is able to learn if we focus on the diversity of how our brain works instead of relying only on books and memorization. After I graduated I worked for a Mexican commercial agency in Shanghai, Mexico City, and Paris. My job was to promote Mexican businesses in foreign countries with the purpose of expansion, exportation, and foreign investment.

I know how language can be a barrier and I want to help people feel comfortable with Spanish; making them realize that they are capable of learning it, of being better at it, and even speaking as well as a native. Spanish is my native language, I am qualified to teach all levels of Spanish, from beginners to Business Spanish.

I will always start by knowing the student's needs and wants regarding the language and will establish a personalized way of learning. I am reliable, easy to reach, and eager to answer any questions. ¡A sus órdenes!

Excellent teacher and wonderful person!

Melissa was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She is patient and understanding, and took the time to make sure I understood well before moving forward. Not to mention she is a kind and warm person who I would love to spend time with outside of Wyzant! I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing help with Spanish.
