About Isabel

I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different

Isabel was patient with my 5-year old and was able to keep her on track during the 45 minute lesson. Great job!

Private ESL Teacher

During my 11+ years of ESL teaching I have worked with all levels of adult students; from beginners to advanced English skills. The opportunity of teaching students one-on-one enhances & improves my student's learning, comprehension and ability to advance their English speaking skills. My knowledge & strengths of English grammar and sentence structure affords students a deeper understanding and education about English rather than simply learning basic conversation skills.

Hello, I am an ESL educator. I have been teaching ESL for 5 years, and I have 7 years of teaching experience. I am great at teaching students that range from beginning to advance. ESL lessons are unique to me, because they bring two individuals, who speak two different languages together. Although, we may not speak the same language, we may have similar experiences that aid in teaching. We will find a bond based on the similarities and differences we have. I am great with all ages! Whatever you may need, please do not hesitate to ask. I can also assist in teaching computer skills that can aid in English proficiency.

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!!!
Kari Bardowell
Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.
Darci
Melissa is the best! Extremely knowledgeable and patient with her students. I highly recommend her.

I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

Learn English in Atlanta

About 1.5 billion people speak English in the world, and only around 360 million are native speakers. This means that despite English's difficult pronunciation rules, strange spelling, and irregular conjugations, more than a billion people are currently studying English as a second language. And the number of non-native English speakers is only expected to grow. 

But studying English with only a textbook will make it difficult to learn proper pronunciation. It also makes it tough to pick up nuances that you can only learn from an experienced tutor. In this guide, we’ll discuss how learning ESL in Atlanta, Georgia can help you speak like a native and reach your desired level of proficiency faster.

The Benefits of Learning English as a Second Language in Atlanta, GA

Lots of factors make Atlanta a great place to learn English. Friendly people fill the city and welcome newcomers with southern hospitality. Plus, while you take English classes in Atlanta, GA, you'll be able to immerse yourself in the language by enjoying everything the city has to offer. 

One of the largest cities in the southern United States, Atlanta offers everything from cultural events and historical exhibits to professional sports, great food, and educational centers. On a hot day, consider touring the World of Coca-Cola, where you can take an interactive trip through the history of the Coca-Cola Company and sample over 100 different ice-cold beverages. 

You can also take in American culture while strolling through Piedmont Park, watching a show at the Fox Theater, or observing wildlife at Zoo Atlanta. And be sure to try a top-rated dish at B's Cracklin' Barbecue - one of Atlanta's most popular barbecue restaurants.

Choosing an English Tutor in Atlanta

When you're ready to sign up for private English lessons in Atlanta, GA, you'll find over 200 tutors in our directory, with many available to meet face-to-face in and around Atlanta. Our tutors are highly recommended, certified, and experienced. For more personalized instruction, we recommend selecting an ESL teacher in Atlanta who also speaks your native language.

For example, Isabel L. is one of our well-loved tutors who hails from Smyrna, just north of Atlanta's city center. She teaches students of all ages and skill levels. She also strives to keep each class entertaining and engaging to encourage fast learning.

Or you may prefer to learn with one of our top-rated online tutors, such as Kelly M. A five-star reviewer wrote- "Miss Kelly is very professional, dedicated, and attentive to my needs... She used different teaching methods and tools to help me understand my language faults." If you need help choosing the best tutor for you, contact our helpful Student Support staff. 

Where to Take English Classes in Atlanta, GA

One of the best parts of studying ESL in Atlanta, Georgia is getting to enjoy all the unique sights and meeting spots the city has to offer. We recommend choosing a quiet place to meet for your private, Atlanta ESL classes. Consider using a meeting room at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, or catch a cool breeze at Centennial Olympic Park. 

After you've had a couple of lessons, consider venturing out with your Atlanta English tutor for a more immersive lesson. Take in a ball game at Turner Field, or ask your tutor for a cultural experience at a local restaurant serving up authentic southern food, like South City Kitchen Midtown or Mary Mac's Tea Room.

If you prefer to take online ESL classes in Atlanta, we recommend finding a location with strong WiFi where you’ll be able to hear your instructor. You should also choose a time when you’ll experience minimal interruptions. Whether you stay home, go to the library, or enjoy a cup of coffee at a cafe during your lesson, our English teachers are flexible and work with your needs.

Preparing for ESL Classes in Atlanta

Before your first lesson, be sure you have all the supplies you need to learn English in Atlanta. Drop by Paper Source to pick up new pens, notebooks, and highlighters for taking notes. Then, visit a local library branch to check out an English dictionary and other reading materials.

Reading and singing are both great ways to supplement your ESL classes. Jive to some music at Fantasyland Records. Then, find a juicy title on the shelves of a local bookstore, like A Cappella Books. 

You can also practice English in a local Meetup group like the Atlanta English Language and TOEFL/IELTS Meetup. However you perfect your conjugations and pronunciations with your English tutor in Atlanta, learning ESL is sure to take you far in this busy and diverse city!
