I've been teaching English since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop travel abroad, participate in and win different competitions and contests, and build their careers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday life and as time goes on you'll be able to make new friends and study and work in it. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Melissa eres la mejor profesora; es una experiencia facil y divertida de aprender ingles. GRACIAS aprendi mucho y me siento en otro nivel, mi pronunciacion y comprension del idioma ahora es mucho mas facil para comunicarme, entender y hablar ingles en los estados unidos. SUPER RECOMENDADAAAAA!!!
Chris
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.

Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

I'm still new to the United States from Japan and I feel out of place here and still I don't know many people.

"Loudel is a natural teacher. She not only teaches in a way that is easy to understand and build on, but gives much needed insight into the historical aspect of how Tagalog has evolved in your first lesson. Her knowledge of how you can connect the grammatical rules of English and Spanish are also beneficial in helping make connections. In order to get the most from your lessons, immerse yourself in the resources she sends you ahead of your lesson. More importantly, relax and enjoy your session! You have chosen an excellent instructor."
