When we started working together, I had previously taken several classes and worked with another teacher, and I was looking for someone who would take a focused approach and prepare me to take the TEF. Melissa was very supportive of this goal. She obviously loves teaching French, and her extraordinary energy and enthusiasm make the lessons fun. She has an extensive library of texts and other teaching materials that she gladly lends to her students. She draws on her comprehensive understanding of French grammar to creatively speed the learning process.
