Hi!

I'm an experienced tutor with a sense of humor!

I have a Master's degree in English obtained at the University Paul Valry in the South of France. I also studied Spanish and French at University level. I'm very good with words and languages and have even created a French learning website.

I have about 10 years of teaching/tutoring experience. I taught French as a foreign language at the University of Manchester, England for one year. I also tutored French privately in London for a few years. I then moved to Paris and tutored English as a foreign language there for 4 years.

For the past six years, I have been tutoring French, English and Spanish in Los Angeles to both children and adults.

I love people and I find tutoring very stimulating and enriching. I also like the flexibility of the job which allows me to combine acting and producing activities.

As for my tutoring/teaching method, it varies depending on the student. I need to know what my student's personality is like before establishing a plan of action! Not everybody is interested in the same things or learns the same way. So I adapt my teaching according to each person so that the learning process is both efficient and fun!

That's about it. Don't hesitate to contact me if you're looking for the right tutor for yourself or your child(ren)! I'd be happy to help!

Talk soon,
Soraya
