About Safira

During my undergraduate years, I volunteered to assist refugee students acclimated to the US school system as I tutored them English among other subjects. In addition, I spent a summer in Guatemala as a substitute teacher for middle school age students teaching various subjects from languages to history and math. That experience was the best time I have had. I love tutoring because it is a way of connecting with others, and helping them reach their learning potential and personal growth. It is truly a rewarding experience especially tutoring language skills to young or adults.

I offer tutoring in French language, and conversational Haitian Creole (beginners, intermediate or advanced). As a language learner myself, I also offer a unique perspective to tutoring non-english speakers who hope to excel in American English. Sessions are 45 minutes to 1 hour long, with availability 7 days per week; and will go at the student's pace. I offer help with conversational skills and grammar using multi-platform tools including music, arts and other cultural tools to find the best way that fits you as a learner.

Now with the completion of my recent TEOFL Certification coursework, my passion for tutoring has deepened. Although the certification centered around ESL, I learned a lot about communication and teaching that will serve me greatly for years to come.
If you love any of the 4 languages I speak and work with, I hope to become your favorite tutor!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

English

In helping students practice and better their English grammar and communication skills, I bring my personal experience as an avid language learner. English is a beautiful language that requires a lot of practice to master. And I have learned many tips and tricks that have helped many students over the years. I also have other experiences teaching foreign languages, like Haitian Creole and French to professionals, students and other language enthusiasts. That is to say, as a tutor, I offer lessons informed by many different learning styles and abilities with focus always on the learner.
