Course Curriculum

Melissa Muir

Homeschooling mom of 4, and educator of over 13 years, Melissa has taught in public, private, and online settings. Her favorite thing is seeing learners grow in confidence and find their voice as they think critically about the challenges, content, and world at their feet! Her classes are known for being rigorous and progress-driven, yet based on a down-to-earth and often humorous tone.


David's Mom

Melissa is an outstanding teacher with great communication skills, passion and patience. My 8-year-old son loves her class very much. She makes sure everyone takes chances to speak and is involved in every class. She's an expert at class management and creating an atmosphere of team-work in class, and she's not just teaching the kids English, but she also teaches manners and communication skills. I love her class very much, and I believe she is by far the greatest native English teacher I've ever gotten the chance to experience as a mom, and also as a teacher also teaching English for over 13 years here in Korea. She is just an amazing teacher! -Vivian, David's mom


Lynn's Mom

Melissa is very enthusiastic, she is by far my child's favorite teacher. She will develop a study plan according to the needs of the students. Each topic will be learned using listening, speaking, reading and writing. Preview before class, class discussion, feedback after class, homework correction. All in all, Melissa is a great teacher! -Titian*, Lynn's mom *Name changed for privacy
