Hola, my name is Melina and I teach Spanish since 2013.

I was very impressed with how prepared Melina was for each lesson, preparing tailored material to suit both my language level and learning speed. Melina helped me get a handle on the concepts of the Spanish language when I had struggled before.
Skype is a fabulous platform for learning and gives me access to a native Spanish speaker. Melina's style of teaching suits my very busy schedule, each lesson is varied and the approach is relaxed and conducted at a reasonable pace. She is also very patient...
...I highly recommend Melina as a tutor and her lessons are excellent value for money. Melina has a great personality and an excellent teaching approach.
I have been trying to learn spanish for a while now but since starting lessons with Melina I am much more engaged, she is patient and always happy to answer my questions, no matter how silly they might sound. Melina makes it easy and enjoyable to learn!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our lessons. We found Melina to be an excellent and patient and friendly teacher who gives lot of encouragement.

I had a number of lessons with Melina prior to my AQA A Level Spanish speaking exam that not only improved the quality of my Spanish but also my confidence in being able to speak spontaneously. We would spend the entirety of each lesson speaking Spanish and doing exam practice...
...and she was always happy to look at my written work and answer any questions I had. My actual speaking exam went very well, thanks to all of Melina's help!
I had a great time learning Spanish with Melina. Her professional and organised manner helped me to grasp the language. She was very patient and obviously worked hard and enjoyed her language very much. I would definitely recommend Melina to my family and friends.
Why learn online?
More and more people are using internet video conference to learn a language. It's an affordable way to get one-to-one tuition at home. It's great fun and you can learn at your own pace.
If you don't already have the Skype app installed on your computer/tablet, download it here. You also need a webcam and speakers, and a good internet connection.
My Spanish courses
I provide courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced students of all ages, as well as lessons for secondary school students (GCSE/AS/A level). Each lesson lasts about 45-50 minutes.
I also teach children age 3 and up.
Whether you are a young or an adult learner, we start from the beginning!
My course covers all the grammatical aspects of the language and follows a coursebook structure. We can also focus on your particular interests and aims.
Be prepared for reading and writing, but mostly for lots of speaking to get you to express yourself confidently in the Spanish language.
Intermediate and advanced
If you have studied Spanish before and need to refresh your skills or to take it to the next level, then these regular one-to-one lessons are for you. We will review the tenses and grammar you already know and then move on to more complex structures. We will work with more interesting and advanced texts.
For advanced students, it's always good to keep practicing and adding to your vocabulary. As a native Spanish speaker, I can help you to enrich your expressions and improve your fluency with up-to-date conversation.
GCSE, AS and A level students
Lessons once or twice a week will supplement your school lessons and help you keep pace with your course. I can help you understand the topics you did not understand in class. We can work through your course material for your particular curriculum (AQA, Edexcel etc).
Or maybe you want to book a few lessons before your exams to help clear any doubts. We can focus on particular areas where you need more help, and practice speaking, writing and listening with confidence.
Children ages 3 and up
These lessons are really fun. I work with flash cards and other visual material. Sometimes we might even sing! Your child will need a notebook to write things down or draw, according to their literacy stage.
Lessons are 15-30 minutes long and at least one parent needs to be present. You will see how fast your child learns! Please contact me for prices and more info.
When are lessons available?
You can start this week! I provide lessons in the afternoon and evenings, Monday to Friday and also weekends, subject to availability.
Click "Get started" and complete the registration form. Then I can give you a short introduction on Skype and we can discuss your current ability and aims, and you can see if my lessons are right for you.
