WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY
Studying English with Melody has been an amazing experience for me. She has not only provided me with the opportunity to gain a high level of competence in English, but also has allowed me to learn a new culture and way of life, and to rise to my full potential in a warm and caring learning environment.
