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!!!

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.

Melissa is the best! Extremely knowledgeable and patient with her students. I highly recommend her.

I signed up for voice lessons with Zelda because, as an experienced singer, I was in a rut and needed a refresh. The technical aspects of lessons, like the warm-ups and the voice measurement have been fun and helpful and the coaching for goals I can set and homework I can do are exactly what I need!

Dear English Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor, as well as a private English tutor, at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows the student to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons themselves are then spent reviewing previous work, as well as introducing new material in a variety of ways, all the while engaging in various forms of dialogues depending on your level.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

Mrs. Ghada is very organized and knowledgeable in her subject area. She is an enthusiastic, very patient and humorous sometimes. Mrs. Ghada is a self motivated and a fast learner when it comes to learning new teaching strategies. She encourages me to go the extra step in learning by sending me her written feed back notes on my submitted assignments. I liked that she always response quickly to my email questions. Mrs. Elfarra can adjusts her teaching techniques to help students with different learning styles succeed in her class by varying her assignments and assessment methods like short written or spelling quiz...etc.. She is kind and understanding teacher and capable of handling difficult situations. Mrs. Ghada is a very helpful and kind teacher, I am very please to take her class."
