I am a Ph.D. student at The Catholic University of America. Prior to meeting with Melissa, I had no knowledge of French. But after three months of private tutoring with Melissa, in person and via Skype, I passed my rigorous departmental language exam with high marks. Thanks to Dr. Kerley’s enseignement magnifique (magnificent teaching) method coupled with her patience I am now able to read and translate French fluently. In addition, she is an incredibly kind person and you just might end up with a friend after you achieve your goals!
