About Soraya


Bio

My name is Soraya and I am French. I am also a highly experienced tutor with a sense of humor! I believe that learning should be an enjoyable process, even when preparing for exams. Efficiency and fun are both key to me.

My name is Soraya and I am French. I am also a highly experienced tutor with a sense of humor! I believe that learning should be an enjoyable process, even when preparing for exams. Efficiency and fun are both key to me.

My tutoring/teaching method: It is based on my student's needs and personality, always. We establish goals together, and I put a plan of action in place, providing learning materials if needed (Alter Ego books for beginners, exercises, grammar lessons, audio documents, AP French texts etc.).

Background: I have a Master's degree in English with a minor in Spanish, obtained at Paul Valery University in France. I'm the creator of the French educational platform "Oh La La, I Speak French!" that offers free material (videos and exercises) to improve one's knowledge of the French language.

Experience: 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 and then privately in London. I continued tutoring when I lived in Paris, mostly English as a foreign language. Since I moved to Los Angeles, over 10 years ago, I have been tutoring French, English and Spanish at all levels and to nearly all ages (I don't tutor children under 11).

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.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you're looking for the right tutor for yourself or your child(ren)! I look forward to hearing from you.

Passionate French Tutor

Soraya has been teaching me etre and avoir, formal and informal greetings, numbers, days of the week and verb conjugation. She is great with adults learning a new language. She engages her students in every lesson she teaches. She makes learning French fun and easy. She is a phenomenal tutor.

Excellent First Session! Soraya is fun and exceptionally knowledgeable!

This was my first session with Soraya and I am so pleased. Soraya was fun and patient and quickly honed in on my level and needs and supported me to get back into French which I hadn't studied in over 30 years since high school. Her sense of humor and enjoyment, combined with her knowledge and written support (which I downloaded after the session so I could review) makes her an exceptional tutor!

Wonderful tutor

Soraya and I spent our first lesson gaging where I was in my knowledge of French. It felt very personalized. Soraya was very friendly and engaging, and the time flew by. I'm looking forward to our next session!

Blair, 22 lessons with Soraya

really good!

Soraya was super easy to talk to-- and reviewing the notes she gave to me after our lesson was finished was also really helpful. I highly recommend her, especially if, like me, you are a timid speaker!
