Not just basic but very technical as well. She is very good at finding and adjusting to your level of language and finding fitting material to work on. She is very professional and goes above and beyond to help her student out! She not only has been helping me out on language study but has also given me great insight on what its like to work in Japan or study abroad in Japan as well as how to get there. She is very reliable contacting by e-mail or phone. Once again I highly recommend Helena!
Petra speaks French beautifully (I am particular about instructors having excellent accents) and she does a fantastic job of creating personalized lessons around my specific topics of interest and areas where I need improvement. She is a very knowledgeable, patient teacher and my French has significantly improved in the months since I started lessons. I highly recommend Petra for anyone wishing to learn or improve their French!
During one particular lesson, she searched for and found an Arabic cookbook to show me pictures and recipes of Arabic foods, which I had never been able to visualize previously. The lesson could have proceeded without me seeing what the food looked like, but she actually cared that I had knowledge about Arabic beyond simple grammatical concepts. Overall, after being taught by several different college professors, Reem, in my opinion, is one of the best Arabic instructors I have had.
