« Perfect! I am French and I moved to NYC at the beginning of October 2018. I have been taking one-on-one English lessons with Emily since my arrival. She is an amazing person and teacher: patient, extremely helpful and encouraging. She is great at transferring knowledge, and I can tell that there is a serious effort and thought to prepare her own tools and tutoring. I have had a tremendous experience with Emily, she teaches me modern English and she is really involved with my progress. Now, I have reached a conversational level. It's a real blessing for me to have met Emily! »

Native English Speaker Available to Assist You with Speaking, Listening, and Pronunciation

Methodology

I use an established program of everyday topics to assist in natural, free-flowing conversation. I offer constructive feedback and assistance contextualizing subjects and expressions in American English that may be unfamiliar to foreigners. I will also use videos and print sources to aid in instruction.

Background

I have studied three foreign language abroad in three different countries. I understand how frustrating it is to not be able to express yourself in a second language. I have informally tutored over two dozen students of English, in person and online, helping them to improve their fluency, grammar, pronunciation, comprehension, and vocabulary. I am able to teach common idiomatic expressions and everyday sayings, including ways to make your speech sound more natural and everyday. I want to help you make the most of your tutoring time, and to take your English to the next level.

I have a master's degree in Library Science and I am able to locate language aid instruction resources to assist you in your English learning needs. For example, I can locate resources for specialized vocabulary for particular industries.

I am an advanced speaker of Brazilian Portuguese. I have previous experience assisting Brazilians who wish to improve their conversation skill and pronunciation.

Perfect! I am French and I moved to NYC at the beginning of October 2018. I have been taking one-on-one English lessons with Emily since my arrival. She is an amazing person and teacher: patient, extremely helpful and encouraging.

She is great at transferring knowledge, and I can tell that there is a serious effort and thought to prepare her own tools and tutoring. I have had a tremendous experience with Emily, she teaches me modern English and she is really involved with my progress. Now, I have reached a conversational level.

It's a real blessing for me to have met Emily!

Emily's response

It was a pleasure to work with​ Mélodie​​​​​​​. We met for several months for regular, one-on-one English conversation lessons. She was a terrific student, motivated​, and well perpared​. She made excellent progress with her English conversation​, and has become a capable and confident English speaker. In addition, Mélodie is very personable, gracious, and kind. She was open to different methods and approaches in language instruction, and she shared a lot of cool things with me about French culture​, including an authentic French dessert​! ​I tailored many of our lessons according to her interests and preferences. She was flexible about our meeting dates and ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​always so friendly and welcoming. Mélodie​ was a ​wonderful student!
