About Melissa

I have my certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the Cambridge CELTA program. I am patient and will never tell a student, "That's just the way it is!" I have valuable input to help students communicate what they are trying to say clearly and professionally.

I minored in Spanish at UC Berkeley, studied Social Work at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in Mexico City for two years, and earned my secondary education teaching credential in Spanish and ESL from San Francisco State University. I lived in Mexico with extended family that speak Spanish for over five years so I have a deep understanding of the language in context. My unique experience of immersion, traditional grammar study, and being trained in how to teach a language enable me to give students all they need as they study Spanish.

I love to teach because I see myself when I was learning another language in my students. My most joyful moments are seeing a student's eyes light up with understanding. I am dedicated to working with my students on proofreading until they have a polished piece that they are proud to turn in.

I would love to support you in your personal and academic goals. I have flexible hours and can meet at your desired location. I can tutor for specific needs such as a test or travel to another country or ongoing needs such as becoming fluent.
