Melanie is a fantastic teacher. Whether it was reviewing grammar, or learning conversational Spanish, Melanie made learning fun and ensured the results I was looking for. I would strongly recommend Melanie to anyone looking for help learning Spanish.

Jan 2000 - Present
Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced, SAT prep, Spanish Language and Literature
I have been tutoring Spanish Language students ever since I graduated from College. Those originally informal arrangements helped others with basic grammar and conversation. In 2006-2007 I began leading group classes in Spanish grammar and conversation and then tutoring formally one on one, both in person and online. I have gathered students of all ages, 5 year olds...to college...to professional working adults. For the last 4 years I have been giving lessons in all elementary school subjects completely in Spanish. I love tutoring Spanish grammar, I like to make it fun and I love to see my students gain conversational ability quickly!
World travel
Nov 1999 - Dec 2002
Madrid, Spain
While translating a theater script from English to Spanish, I lived in Madrid and made contacts with other theater artists and writers in order to gain vocabulary, experience and cultural knowledge that would grow the finished written project into a vehicle for production in Spain and in New York City. My writing skills and translation work became greater tools for polished speaking and completed written assignments.
