Hi!

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

I am a French native speaker and have have a Master's degree in English with a minor in Spanish, obtained at Paul Valery University, in the South of France. I'm very good with words and languages and have even created a French learning website "Oh La La, I Speak French!".

I have been teaching/tutoring languages for over 15 years now. I taught French as a foreign language at the University of Manchester, England for one year. I also tutored French as a foreign language in London for a few years. While living in Paris, I taught French as a foreign language and also tutored Spanish. I tutored French, English and Spanish in Los Angeles to both children and adults for about 10 years. I just came back to Los Angeles after 4 years in Paris, teaching English as a foreign language mostly, and am excited to go back to tutoring French and Spanish.

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!

Don't hesitate to contact me if you're looking for the right tutor for yourself or your child(ren)! I'd be delighted to help!

Soraya

Magnifique

My son has been working with Soraya weekly for several months. His goal is to become fluent in French and needs more instruction than is given in school. Soraya is highly organized, always on time, and continually challenges my son. He really enjoys working with her and looks forward to his lessons every week. Highly recommend!

Great Teacher

Soraya, is extreme patient and does a great job explaining the material. I have only taken two classes but feel my French has improved drastically.

Josh, 11 lessons with Soraya

Terrific Tutor

My daughter enjoyed her time today and is looking forward to continuing to work with Soraya! Loved hearing her laugh and have fun while learning French. Happy she will be brushing up on her Spanish as well!

Kelly, 45 lessons with Soraya

Professional and fun

Soraya caters to your level of language making a program personally for you. She adds fun elements to the session to make it memorable. I would highly recommend Soraya and happy that we have her as our tutor!

True professional with patience

Soraya teaches French to my son, who has ADHD. They interact via skype and I am deeply impressed by her experience and patience in dealing with a kid that occasionally ticks differently. She is strict, energetic, forceful, and yet totally chill. She knows how to teach French, has high standards, but knows how to adjust to the needs of my son. I am thrilled that she works with him! He has gradually improved and I expect by the end of the school year, a kid who is happy about this academic development. Thank you Soraya!

Wonderful, makes you feel at ease!

Soraya was so patient and helpful! My nerves were instantly calmed because she’s so easy going. It’s been 10 years since I’ve used my French and I’m rusty in conjugations and such, so I’m so thankful to have someone help me get back into the language. Soraya is so good about sending vocabulary and phrases written out as well so you can look back over and study what you’ve learned during your lesson. Can’t wait to continue!

Knowledgeable

She tutored my daughter for Spanish class and she was very helpful! After their tutoring session my daughter took her exam and she did very well. Soraya taught her things that my daughter did not know and it was very helpful!

Excellent Teacher

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.

Excellent Tutor

Soraya is excellent at tutoring in written French essays. She was very helpful with developing sentence structure at the AP French level. Highly recommended.
