Hi, I'm Karim, your new teacher!
In addition to being a Frenchmen, I speak nine other languages fluently.
More than just learning language, I understand that learning a language isn't just about learning words, but understanding a culture as well.
There are many ways to learn a language.
For example, it can be boring and inefficient, or fun and very effective.
I chose to teach my students in a fun and effective method based on making the lesson enjoyable.
This method helps imprint the material in the student's mind because he or she are actively learning and engaged in the material rather than passively listening.
My goal with each student is to identify his or her weaknesses and help them rapidly improve. I welcome parental feedback, both initially and while the student progresses in the language.
Weekly assessments will be provided, without overwhelming the student.
Keeping the student challenged and engaged is one of my goals. Chances are, students often don't learn languages quickly because they aren't actively engaged. Having learned many languages myself, both as a child and adult, I understand the challenges and frustrations of language learning. I'll help the student overcome the fears or challenges associated with language learning and turn it into a positive experience.
I have previous experience teaching elementary to adult students in various languages and taught a weekly course in Arabic - French - and Farsi to about ten to twenty students. During this course, I taught grammar, vocabulary, and dialogue and watched the students progress throughout the year.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Language translation from the French Military Academy and have spent over ten years doing translation work in the military and teaching.
While I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I understand unforeseen events happen, and can be flexible with my time and offer makeup classes if necessary.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.
