My name is Geena and I am a French teacher. I have been speaking the language since elementary school and began teaching French over ten years ago. I have a conversational teaching style but also include the important structural elements that allow a student to learn quickly and efficiently. In tutoring, I also incorporate media tools, storytelling, and interactive exercises to enhance the learning experience and make it more enjoyable for a student to learn the language.

Geena has proven herself to be a great tutor to my daughter. My daughter's grades have greatly improved. Geena is very friendly and she is flexible with her scheduling which is a huge help with our busy lives. I would recommend Geena to anyone who needs help with French.
Even though we only used Geena for a short time, she made such a difference for my son in French. She is enthusiastic and eager to teach. She is flexible - made it easy to schedule sessions. She was always accommodating. We will definitely use her again if the need arises! Two thumbs up!
I highly recommend Geena as a French Tutor with the greatest enthusiasm and confidence. Geena has a sincere desire to teach others and to ensure your personal success with the language. Geena is consistent, thorough, creative and reliable. She knows how to tailor lessons to align to your level of comprehension. She keeps you motivated and interested when the lessons get difficult. Geena's patience allowed her to work steadily with me and to keep me focused. Because of Geena's help and encouragement I now know I can master this language!
Geena is a great tutor. She was my French tutor from February until July of 2011, where she taught me french grammar, pronunciation, and how to read and translate. Prior to that, I had no french experience or training at all. I had to learn French in order to pass a french translation exam for my graduate program. In those few short months, Geena was able to teach me the foundations of French up to the advanced levels of grammar, and I successfully passed my translation exam. She is very knowledgeable in French, as well as extremely helpful. She is always willing to go the extra mile. She assigns and corrects homework if the student wants it. She is also very accommodating and works around your schedule. Geena is very patient and always in a good mood- very easy to work with. She makes the difficult language very enjoyable to learn. I would recommend her to anyone at any level- whether you just want a refresher or are starting brand new- Geena is the best tutor to choose.
Geena is an excellent tutor. She is a dedicated professional with a passion for teaching languages. Geena's passion for teaching coupled with her life experience make her a knowledgeable and fun instructor to work with. She has a flexible schedule that makes scheduling classes easy. If you want to develop an individual curriculum that will meet your needs, Geena is the person to help you.
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 is my native language. I have a baccalaureate degree (equivalent to a high school degree in the Unites States) as credentials. I have continued to speak and write Arabic with family and friends since earning my degree and have occasionally tutored to students in need. I use a curriculum that focuses on teaching the language in both its conversational and classic form.
I graduated with a B.S in Human nutrition from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. I have been practicing Nutrition for over 5 years for pregnant and postpartum moms as well as counseling them on their babies and children's nutrition. I love being a Nutritionist because we live in a world of health issues and obesity therefore with my field I can prevent health issues and nutrition deficiencies by choosing the right nutrients for a healthier metabolism.
