Melisa has a great energy and I think will make lessons very fun. She has a clear plan of what she wants to teach which is helpful and makes it seems like a more feasible track to learning Spanish
- Sarah C. from Studio City, CA
Melisa is a fantastic teacher. She?s adaptive to the student?s needs, laid back, friendly and easy to laugh with. She is diligent in making sure her students understand how to correctly enunciate words and addresses questions with thoughtful consideration and patience. Really couldn?t recommend Melisa more!

Melisa teaches my three kids English as a second language and does a great job. Patient, focused and with good humour. She makes good adjustments according to age and level. The kids loved her from first sight.

Melisa is patient and organized. I appreciate her keeping our objectives in mind at every lesson. My 11 year old enjoys her weekly Spanish lesson with Melisa.

Melisa was wonderful with my high school aged daughter. She had very specific grammar questions and Melisa was able to clear up her confusion. I would definitely recommend her!
- Lisa D. from Studio City, CA
Melisa is always patient and encouraging. She makes learning Spanish so much easier. She is able to review my homeschool assignments and help me really learn it.
- Ruth Anne T. from Glendale, CA
Melisa had great practical tips for my son to be consistent. She understands how people process learning a language. It all comes from repitition!!
- Lorri H. from Los Angeles, CA
Melisa was great! I booked her for my boss and my boss enjoyed her lesson. Great communication, would definitely recommend her.
- Brandon P. from Los Angeles, CA
Melisa is amazing! She helped me so much, while working at a fast pace as I asked her to. She explained things very clearly and helped me grasp ideas by sharing her knowledge. She is by far the best Spanish tutor I've ever had!
- Abigail S. from Los Angeles, CA
AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME!!!! I've only had one lesson with Melisa, but I can tell, based on past bad tutor experiences, that she is going to be amazing! She is smart, witty, makes learning interesting and fun and explains everything so very concisely and directly. She's really great and I can't wait for our next lesson.

Melisa was a very great tutor! She made me actually have fun while learning which helped me get the information down faster, I would recommend her!
- Kayla K. from Encino, CA
We went over basic things but I was surprised I knew a lot more than I thought! Melisa was nice and very helpful! I promise I will practice!
- Sarah C. from Sherman Oaks, CA
My son connected to Melisa's teaching. He is way behind in Spanish and has stayed focused in her lessons. He can't thank her enough when she leaves. He seems relaxed and positive.
- Paige F. from Pasadena, CA
Melisa teaches me Spanish. She is wonderful at figuring out how I learn and conforming to methods that specifically help me.
- Shiela B. from Los Angeles, CA
Melisa was fully prepared for our hour of yoga. As a complete beginner I was a little nervous but Melisa was an amazing instructor. I'm documenting our experience together for an editorial piece so I'm relieved that I'm in capable and knowledgeable hands.
- Danielle C. from Burbank, CA
Melisa really helped my daughter with elementary Spanish - so much so that in class she felt more confident to speak in class!
- Monica M. from Encino, CA
Melisa worked with our daughter for 1 hour and our daughter really liked the session. We will be working with her weekly.
- Nancy M. from Los Angeles, CA
In our first lesson, I'm already learning how to have a basic conversation in Spanish. I really like the way Melisa teaches me by seeing and doing. I like the fact she has an agenda for what she wants to teach me and She seems very dedicated to helping me accomplish my goals with learning Spanish. Can't wait for our next lesson.
