Information About Melissa - Glasgow tutor - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Melissa:
My name is Melissa . I am 42 years old and I have seven years experience teaching both in secondary schools & colleges. I have tutored many clients of varying age and levels. I work well with both young people & adults. I previously spent a year in a beautiful part of North West Spain called Galicia. I love the Spanish language and culture and find it a great pleasure to teach.
During my year in Spain I gained teaching experience at a Spanish Secondary School teaching English as a Foreign Language. I am a fully qualified teacher registered with the General Teaching Council of Scotland and taught a range of certificate classes at St Ninian's High School in East Renfrewshire last year with very successful results. I have built up a reputation as someone who helps students achieve excellent SQA results at all levels.
My approach to tutoring will largely depend on the needs, level and age-group of the students. After an initial assessment and discussion about what the leaner hopes to get out of the lessons I would develop a personal learning plan. Generally I would help the learner develop the 4 necessary language skills; reading, writing, listening and speaking. I would also introduce them to methods to help them retain the language they are learning. However, I would always communicate with the learner and develop lessons to suit their individual needs.

Starting from Spanish language basics, she taught me the structure of the language, the pronunciation, verbs and sentence building, and made learning a new language very enjoyable.
Each lesson was always well structured and a very positive and fun learning experience. The Spanish skills she taught me have proved very useful, and continue to use them today.
Very happy to recommend.
