About the teacher
Hello Future Students!
My name is Melissa. I have been teaching english for over one year now! I began my journey as an English teacher in New York, where I taught English once a week to a class of approximately 40 adult students. These students were primarily from South America. I then continued my journey as an English teacher here, in Barcelona Spain. I currently teach classes to people of all ages, ranging between 4 and 40 years old! I like to base my classes on topics that my students enjoy learning and speaking about. For example, one of my classes I teach, we read and talk about different books. We are currently reading The Hobbit together. Another one of my classes that I am teaching, we watch news clips and read different political articles and discuss our thoughts on what is going on in the world. I promise you that your English will improve and you will succeed in the language if you choose me as your English teacher!
