About Melba


Bio

I started tutoring first graders when I was in 8th grade. During high school I was always the first one to volunteer when something needed explaining by a student. In Princeton I tutored friends in Spanish. As a professional I offered numerous seminars to adults.

I started tutoring first graders when I was in 8th grade. During high school I was always the first one to volunteer when something needed explaining by a student. In Princeton I tutored friends in Spanish. As a professional I offered numerous seminars to adults.

I love teaching what I know and love. As a student myself, I always preferred teachers who did not assume you know certain things. I always start from scratch and advance accordingly depending on each student's knowledge. I like explaining things in different ways until I find the student's preferred method and that which makes learning more interesting and easier. I enjoy the bond created by student and the tutor that share the success of something forever learned.

I am a native Spanish speaker and lived and studied in a Spanish community all my life aside from my four years at Princeton University and a couple of years working in Washington DC and New York City.

I think learning should be interesting and even fun in addition to being effective. Please feel free to contact me anytime to discuss any doubts, concerns or ideas you might have.

Patient Tutor!

Melba worked with me on Spanish 3 from March to May 2018 for 8 sessions. She was very patient with me even with my ADHD and my slow time learning Spanish. She helped me not only understand what the words meant but also how to pronounce them correctly. Because of her I was able to pass Spanish with a solid B. Thank you, Melba!
