About Nicolas

I have always been interested in languages. I am a native Arabic speaker and fluent in French and English. I had my schooling in Arabic and French and my college education was English based. Two years ago I started learning Farsi on my own. I therefore know the challenges every student faces when learning a new language.

I taught languages at a private school in Maine but I use my language skills mostly in translation and interpretation. I have been translating for more than seven years and interpreting for more than six for the public and private sectors.

When tutoring I abide by the same standards that are expected from me when I interpret for the public sector or translate documents for a private party because often there is no margin for error.

Feedback from the student and the parents is very important and I will adapt my tutoring based on the student's performance. I work from home and I am flexible in my schedule.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Arabic

I am a native Arabic speaker and I have used my language skills since I came to the US, 10 years ago. I taught Arabic at the Michaud International Academy in Bangor, ME, and have been translating and interpreting in Arabic for several years for the private and public sectors. At the moment I am a Court Interpreter in New England.

French

Although I am not a French native I had all my schooling in French, from first grade to graduation. I am well versed in the nuances of the French language and as a fluent English speaker I am aware of the difficulties the student will encounter in his learning process and believe that I am well positioned to help him in the process.
