Paul Valery, france (English)
Paul Valery, france (Master's)
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!

Soraya is simply the best - very knowledgeable and well educated, she is able to pass that knowledge on to the pupil with patience, wisdom and above all humor.
I have been studying French on and off with Soraya for 10 months. She's extremely patient and very knowledgeable.
Most important to me is that her English is impeccable, so none of those waste times when you can't understand what a foreign teacher is talking about. Her happy personality and big smile always makes our lessons very pleasant. I look forward to getting back to my lessons after my crazy travel schedule.
Soraya is excellent at tutoring in written French essays. She was very helpful with developing sentence structure at the AP French level. Highly recommended.
Soraya really challenged me to grow as a French student. She always varied, when tutoring, between writing, speaking and reading activities, which really helped to improve my language ability. Furthermore, she was fun, energetic and always open to adapting her lesson to what I needed.She was very punctual and easy to get along with.
Soraya tailored our sessions to meet my needs for a month long sojourn to France. She very quickly assessed my learning style and capabilities, and used my strengths to get the best use out of our sessions. I particularly appreciated her flexibility in ending some sessions when she saw I was "saturated", without charging for the additional time. Learning French was useful and fun with Soraya O!!
Soraya is a wonderful tutor! She is a smart, polished professional who explains things clearly, and is very patient. With Soraya's help this past semester, I now feel fully confident to take and do really well with AP French in September. Soraya returns phone calls and emails quickly, and does everything possible to accommodate her student's schedule.
We hired Soraya to tutor our middle schooler in French. Soraya not only provided direction but outlined study skills as well. After the initial tutoring session Soraya worked on her own time and arrived at the next session with a study strategy. She exhibited a good balance of knowledge, drive and gentility that inspires but doesn't intimidate. Soraya is a great tutor and we plan to have her come back! We highly recommend her!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
