"Hello, my name is Melissa and I love what I do here through Wyzant! If you need some guidance with Spanish, ESL or Visual Arts let me help you!

This is a basic breakdown of how I approach the different students I work with:

·Children ages 1 -10:

I speak to them entirely in the target language. We learn the alphabet, numbers, how to read and converse. I have successfully taught one child to read in Spanish. When we started she was age 4, now 2 years later she is able to read and write at the same level she can in English. There is another child I started working with in September of 2015, she was already familiar with the alphabet and numbers but not able to converse. Now she can carry on basic conversations on a variety of topics; holidays, school, animals, friends (the topics that interest her most) in the different modes of time, present, past, future, conditional.

·Teens and college students:

I look for patterns in errors; grammar, pronunciation, spelling. I explain why the mistakes occur, I then reintroduce content and provide new opportunities to practice through natural conversation. I've helped several students both in school and college raise their grades a letter grade or two. Keep in mind it takes time to improve grades. The sooner you seek help and the more time we have to go over concepts, the better the chances are you'll see the grade you desire. Also, please, send homework, quizzes, tests and classwork before each session. It gives me a chance to not only review errors but to create a better lesson based on your learning style.

·Adult learners:

We work on specific topics each session with an emphasis on personal and everyday scenarios. I often use popular board games to practice and review in the target language. I have worked with an array of professionals including: military personnel, pilots, accountants, health care professionals, restaurant health inspectors, retail associates, hospitality and tourism employees, travel enthusiasts, company managers, teachers, psychologists, zoologists" less...
