As an ESL student myself, I understand the struggles that English language can provide. That is why I try to help all of my ESL friends to improve their english, as I was once helped. I love languages because learning and mustering a new languages opens a new world of possibilities and broadens one's horizons.

Q&A:

Q.: Do you teach bi-weekly lessons?

A.: No, I do not give bi-weekly lessons, and require all of my students to take at least 4 lessons a month to be able to join my studio.

Q.: What happens if I miss a lesson?

A.: My studio policy is that all of my students are required to give me an at least 24-hour notice if they will be missing their lesson for any reason with the exception of illness or family emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to reschedule the lesson for the same week, or their lesson time will be charged in full. For illnesses and family emergencies I will require a doctor's note or a short letter explaining the reason behind their ...

I know learning a new language can be intimidating at first but as your language coach,you'll see learning can be comfortable and fun! In my classes, all classes are recorded ( they are private!) I find that our recorded lessons are going to be a great reference when you are practicing and it enhances the atmosphere by you seeing how much you have improved. Every week we will have a conversation based on what we have learned in our prior lessons. You will have access to powerpoints, scripts, recorded lessons and more! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! Just click the "ask a question" above or contact TakeLessons today!

I have been teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in China for more than 8 years and as a second language in the U.S. for one semester. In my ESL class, I encourage students to be brave and to appreciate their accent and their multiple cultural backgrounds.

Speaking English with an accent is bravery. That's part of your identity. Having multiple cultural backgrounds means you are unique and you can bring that uniqueness in your writing and discussion. And think about that, you can speak language(s) other than English, you are very special!

Hence, in my class, I am very willing to help students build their confidence and strengths in their English learning. I am not a native English speaker and my English is not perfect, but I see myself as a multi-competent teacher. Over the years of language teaching experience as a teacher and learning experience (I can speak five languages) as a multi-linguistic learner, I believe I can help you achieve your goal under our mutual ...

"Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!"
