Private ESL Teacher

I received a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) in 1986 through UC Berkeley Extension and taught at Galileo High School in San Francisco. I also tutored intermediate students from 1986-1988 and taught in Mexico for several months in 2005. In 2011, I came to the International Refugee Committee and for 3 years taught ESL to level 1 students, many from African, Middle Eastern, and other countries who spoke no English at all when they enrolled. I teach students of any age.

About Judy

I have taught many different kinds of subjects, eg., piano, ESL, Drug and Alcohol Education, and foster care parenting, in the past. Mostly, though, I have taught piano and ESL, my first and greatest loves, starting in the 70's and 80's. I develop special relationships with all of my students,

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

I have worked for 4 years teaching Chinese students online using an interactive method. For children I have use of various toys from stuffed animals to robots. I specialize in free talk lessons for higher qualified students and try to concentrate on the skills they wish to improve on. First lessons are always used to get to know the student and what they need to learn. From there I can start to plan lessons to help a student improve on their needs. I also am good at helping a student learn to edit written works as well as teach pronunciation and annunciation.

I tailor my lessons to meet and hopefully exceed the academic needs of my students. I like to make learning fun and connect, what you already know, to new information ready to be absorbed. Those are the two best ways to learn and remember new material.i look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your academic goals in ESL.

Leigh is a good teacher for me. She tries to find my problems and solve the problems. She can make me understand easily and let me ask her the question anytime. I love to study with her so much.
OiyAng
She is a very good teacher. I like her because she encourages me to study. She makes learning even the uninteresting parts of English grammar fun. I'm not bored with the methods of teaching which helps in remembering. She looks for ways that make it easier for the learner to remember by focusing on student interests. I know that she is well prepared and has a well-planned lesson. I am happy and enjoy every time I study with her.

"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!!!"
