Ms. Daniels is a professional. She is on time and reliable. She helped me build confidence while working with her to understand math which I had struggled with my whole life. As an adult, I wasn't sure to start with my math skills, she fully understands my condition and my concentration issues. And after only two months of working with her, I can say that I gained confidence in preparing for my master study that I was too scared to even consider it. I wasn't sure about the online tutoring but after working with her I highly recommend her and to be honest she was a greater help than my former tutors.

Anas

I wanted to improve my IELTS scores in reading and writing. I was worried about the communication aspect of online tutoring, but it wasn�t a concern at all and I will continue to seek online lessons. I liked learning more about grammar and English vocabulary. Melissa was helpful and taught me new strategies. I am ready for the test and recommend her.

Noor

Amazing tutor! Very easy and pleasant to talk to. She has helped me with all of my questions in a very simple way. I recommend her to any student having trouble understanding.

Nitesh

Melissa helped me understand my weaknesses in essay writing and certainly helped me improving the same for the IELTS test. Technology and the methodology used by Melissa worked very well for me. Overall it is a value for money if you get what you want.

Ahmed

Online tutoring was a new concept to me but after trying out a demo class with Melissa I knew it was an instant match! Her fluent English helps you understand more clearly. She explains everything and moves with a pen on your screen as if it was a whiteboard in front of you with ease. My favorite part was that I could have my lesson wherever I wanted without the hassle and need to meet someone somewhere or worrying about being late all from the comfort of your own desk. 10/10 would recommend!

Lama

Despite being hesitant about contacting an online tutor at first, I'm very glad I gave it a try because it turned out to be not so different from in-person tutoring, and often much more efficient actually. Melissa is very organized and effective with her lessons. She takes the time to understand where you are before the lessons start and then finds the best suitable way for you to improve in the areas that you need help with. Her teaching style is comprehensive, patient, and practical. I would definitely recommend Melissa for anyone preparing for standardized tests.

Wafa

Melissa is perfect in teaching me easy methods to solve hard math problems. She gives all the details that students need to be able to master English. I had many previous GMAT tutors but no one was as good as Melissa is. She is extremely kind and encouraging. I am really enjoying working with her, I strongly recommend her to students who are struggling with GMAT, She will make hard math problems easy to solve.

Aljohara

Melissa makes the SAT seem easy because of the strategies that she gives. She simplified the ideas and made them easy to understand. The reading part of SAT is much easier now. I also like the structure of the essay that Melissa helped me with. I am definitely better prepared for the SAT.

Sami

Online tutoring is exactly the same as having a tutor right in front of you. I learned a lot from Melissa. I like the way she makes me have confidence and believe in myself. I feel like I can actually do this and she helps tackle my weak spots. Melissa is a good SAT teacher and I like the way she teaches. She simplifies complicated ideas and makes it easy to understand.

Masters Maths English Test Preparation Physics chemistry Biology accounting Economics

Experience

While my students and I certainly utilized technology and the internet often during our sessions, I never tutored online or for any tutoring company, so am not familiar with the curriculum or methods used in those settings. Tutoring one on one was very enjoyable and rewarding. My students and I had fun, and grew quite fond of one another.

Tutoring Approach

We ensure that our students enjoy instruction tailor made to their needs as well as a strong personal connection with their tutors, who mentor and motivate them to reach their full potential. At Academic Approach, we view test preparation as a valuable opportunity to teach students the skills that will not only increase test scores but also prepare them for higher academic achievement in their high school and college curriculum, a mission we refer to as Teaching Beyond the Test

Hi, I'm Muhammad Shujaat, and I've been teaching IELTS and English for over 12 years.
