Melissa is a truly superb French teacher.  I feel so fortunate to have found her as a teacher for our homeschooled son in his final year of high school.  Our son had completed all the online coursework available to him in French by the end of his junior year.  Melissa guided him through extensive grammar review and vocabulary enrichment in preparation for the SAT II:  His score increased quite significantly over the first time he had taken the exam.  She then planned an excellent and exciting literature course for him, including a study of French poetry that made me wish I were the one getting to take the course!  As a former language teacher and current literature teacher, I am full of admiration for her teaching methods, her preparation and the depth of her knowledge.
