About Me
italki teacher since Jan 29, 2019
Hello together I'm born and raised in and around Basel, Switzerland. My husband and I planned to be on a world tour for 2 years. We wanted to visit South East Asia, Australia, Africa, and many more. Due to Covid, we live in Playa del Carmen, Mexico now. And thanks to the Internet I can keep working. As we are traveling I'll keep teaching on italki as my main income. I try to keep my calendar as Swiss-friendly as possible. I like to cook and to eat and at the moment I work on my running.

TOTALLY RECOMMENDED! Mel has an understanding of students, and a teaching ability that only come from years of experience in the classroom. As well as that, Mel‘s very nice with a great sense of humour!
