Accredited TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher, English teacher, homeschool mom, and co-op instructor teaching and tutoring virtually to students around the world.

Methodology

As an English instructor, I focus my lessons on reading and writing skills.Typically, I work with K-12 students, concentrating on middle to upper-grade levels (5th - 12th US). It's been my experience that students learn best when the topic they're learning about is something they enjoy. Knowing this, I work hard to tailor my lessons to the individual's needs and interests. I want students to WANT to learn.
During our time together, I hope to encourage the student to enjoy reading and writing through interactive and participative engagement.

Background

Hello! My name is Melissa. I am a certified TESOL/TEFL/EYL teacher, professional writer, beta reader, proofreader, editor, and homeschool mom. I have a love for the English language (I have the BA in English to prove it), the smell of new books, and transferring ideas from mind to paper. I have always had a natural tendency to teach others, long before I chose to pursue it as a career. I have been teaching online for over three years and have taught over 2000 classes virtually in ESL and ELA (reading, writing, listening, speaking, and language). Currently, I am pursuing becoming an IEW registered instructor to help spread the benefits of great writing skills to students around the world.
