1 Hr. English Conversation Practice


10 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 07, 2017

I will help you practice your English by talking to you about any subject you choose. As an English Language teacher myself, I can correct little grammar or pronunciation mistakes you make OR just focus on speaking with you naturally. Whichever you prefer! Any level of English is fine!

(Would LOVE to trade for conversation practice in either Spanish, Haitian-Creole, or American Sign Language, but will accept simbi or other exchanges as well.)

Certification: TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages)

Great with kids, too!
Previous elementary school teacher (BA in Elementary Education K-6th grade)

Some basic speaking skills in Spanish and Haitian Creole, but my goal is always to ONLY speak English to you. :)

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Melissa Oliver

Hi! My name is Melissa Oliver. First and foremost, I'm a teacher! Currently I teach English as a language to adults in the mornings and gymnastics to children in the evenings. I have also taught E...nglish to adults in Haiti and to children in Honduras. I love working with kids. After earning my BA in Elementary Education, I was a 5th grade in low-income schools for two years. I have also been a children's director at my church where I planned fun events, summer camps, and after school activities for the kids. Here are some services I may be able to offer you: -tutoring (English, elementary subjects, most math levels) -pets (pet sitting, pet walking, pet play dates for my guinea piggies) -exercise (teach you exercises that you can do without any weights or gym equipment or work out/run with you) -children (babysitting, help plan games, activities, and/or events for kids)show more
