About Brahima

Learning a language is not only about a mastery of that language grammar, syntax, and semantics. It is also after all about understanding the culture and customs of the people who speak that language. I believe that my multicultural background and the depth of my education have prepared me to be an outstanding French tutor. Not only have I studied in the following countries: Mali, Cote D'Ivoire, Algeria, France and the United States; but I have actually lived in those nations; a priceless lifetime experience. I'm a native French tutor who has taught French to the French and equally fluent in English. Learning a language is not only about a mastery of that language grammar, syntax, and semantics.

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.

French

First and foremost, I am a native speaker of French. Additionally not only have I lived and studied in 4 French- speaking countries ( Mali , Cote DIvoire , France , and Algeria ) , but I also understand the customs and culture of the people who speak French language. I have written an autobiographical book in French that is in the process of being printed. I have a Bachelor and a Masters degree.

Geography

Experience worth more than a thousand words. As someone who spent 14 years in Cote D Ivoire, 3 years in Mali ( West Africa ), 1 year in France ( Europe ), 4 years in Algeria ( North Africa ) and living in the United States since 2006, there can be no denying that I bring credibility in any Geography classroom as a teacher or tutor. I haven't just studied Geography, but actually I have lived and witnessed it .

Vocabulary

Just as the work's tools of a writer are pens and pencils and that of an iron-worker remains iron, mine are words. As a freelance Interpreter and Translator of many languages, I have been working with words for years. For me, vocabulary is not just an abstract school subject. In fact, it is what put food on my table .

Not only do I have a Masters degree in Political Science, but I also have a Bachelor degree in English and good enough with words to write an autobiography in French language .

As your Vocabulary tutor, you definitively won't be disappointed .
