Hello, my name is Melissa Rev. and I'm 39 years old and currently living in United States. I am a native English speaker and teach English. I have taught online with Verbalplanet.com since September 2016. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

First off, about myself, I am a generous person. All of my student scores will be five star, 100%, and A+. All of my students will receive top ratings and praise. All of my lessons will be under the control of my learners. The students have total control of what they would like to learn. If the students wish to have a particular subject talked about, I will plan my lessons accordingly.

I am a native English speaker. I was born and raised in Southern California so much of my dialect is Southwestern United States. I have a Bachelor of Science in History from Southern Utah University. I worked in Education and ESL for the past 20 years. I enjoy reading and writing. I'm well spoken. I am a mother and I have one child, a 12 year old daughter, that I love very much. I like pets. I have a cat named TJ, and a hamster named Ronald Weasley (from Harry Potter). I am also a foodie. I love to cook and entertain for friends and family. I love making big dinners and having a full house. I am also well travelled. I have lived abroad in Europe for many years. I enjoy travelling and culture.

Qualifications & Experience

My students have high marks and score well on all exams. I have successfully trained students to test:

TOEFL iBT training to for entrance into American universities. Open opportunities for your children. By passing the TOEFL exam, the student will be able to gain entrance into most U.S. colleges. Learning English opens the door for higher education and successful in a high demand, high paying career.

IELTS International English Language Testing System. The IELTS exam is recognized in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Ireland, the U.K. and the U.S. The IELTS exam can be used on a CV or resume as proof that a foreigner has working knowledge of the English language. Use the IELTS to obtain a high paying career.

TOEIC exam will prove that you have the training to handle real life career obstacles. Many travel companies and telecommunication companies seek out foreigners that have passed the TOEIC bridge or TOEIC exam. I will teach you the skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing comprehension to pass the exam.

Teaching Approach

I believe in positive reinforcement. There are no penalties for wrong answers, and there is a high amount of praise for correct answers.

Since most students are visual learners, my approach is to provide constant visual stimulation. We will create an environment of virtual reality. There are slides constantly presented, and the student will be able to correlate words to the visual image. Slides are presented rapidly. Learning happens quickly. There is never a dull moment.

I set goals towards enhancing listening, speaking, reading and writing English. It is not an issue of memorizing vocabulary, but also understanding comprehension of how to fluently use each word. The English language can be very confusing. It is my objective to be patient and work step by step with the students to clarify information. My goal as a tutor is to teach each one of my students to speak fluent English so that they can further pursue their life goals.
