All lessons are planned according to the needs of the student. I prefer to combine a guided discovery approach with a more traditional approach of teaching, practising, and reviewing. All English skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) and systems (vocabulary, grammar) are taught, using authentic materials as much as possible.
I have worked as a teaching assistant in primary schools and as an English teacher to teens and adults both privately and within the public sector. I love meeting new people and helping them meet their goals. I have been described as popular with students and staff, and this has been said of me when working with kids, teens, and adults. I have the following qualifications: BA (hons)
CELTA (Pass B)
Whatever your English language and literacy goal may be, I’d love to help you achieve it.
For group lessons a separate group rate can be arranged according to the size of the group and location.
For lessons at a location greater than 10 miles away from my home, the hourly rate increases to £20 per hour.
Perfect! I started my lessons at Melissa´s when I didn´t had a glue what type of exam I needed.
She figured out which one would fit to my aims and she was right!
We practiced for the IELTS academic within six months and I got a really good results.
We covered all the parts, she explained everything in detail to me, told me what´s important to know and gave me a lot of material for practice.
I always had the feeling that she was prepared well. There was never ever a feeling of pressure during the lessons and we laughed a lot. It was always fun and I enjoyed beeing with her.
She is an excellent teacher and became a good friend during my time in the UK.
Antonia is a pleasure to teach. She shows great potential and I’m sure that with dedication to her studies she will achieve her goals.

It was lovely to meet Jean-Michel and learn a little about each other today. He is a friendly, polite person who seems to be well motivated. I am confident that Jean-Michel will achieve his goals and look forward to helping him improve his English.
Melissa is an amazing and dedicated teacher. She is patient, meticulous to detail and will work at the pace of the student to ensure their full understanding. I have witnessed her teaching on several occasions and would totally recommend her to anyone.
I am the Main Course Tutor on the CELTA Course taken by Melissa. She is a teacher who plans her lessons thoughtfully, carefully considering the needs of her students. I have no hesitation in recommending her to Superprof members.
