It’s good to find Adam for improving my speaking. He is friendly, hidhly professional. He encourages me a lot to go beyond what actually I am. I saw a good improvement in my speaking. Just follow his guidance and advise.

He is one of the best teachers for speaking classes.

Adam is a great teacher. He praises you for things you do properly and patiently tries to correct any mistakes. His song suggestions that would be used for practice try to highlight your voice as you apply the techniques you learned. They also sometimes take you out of your comfort zone to challenge you and expand your growth. Would highly recommend him as a teacher!

About Meriem Saber
My name is MERIEM I am An Arabic and French tutor , I taught French in my country several years with public and private schools .
I had master degree in French studies. I am happy to work with any age of student from elementary school to adult. and am excited to share my knowledge with others. It is my belief that learning a language is one of the most challenging and fulfilling things a person can do.
I have experience tutoring my own peers at the university, as well as with tutoring young children and adults. This experience has given me the skill set required to assess a student's needs and utilize the resources necessary to satisfy them. Some of my strategies include conversation coaching, vocabulary practice, and grammar and concept explanations. It is my understanding that every student is an individual with their own uni
que learning style, and it is my goal to engage each student on an individual basis that speaks to his or her style.

Meriem est née avec la culture des langues. Elle joue avec les mots, avec la grammaire et sait transmettre cet enthousiasme de la découverte à l'autre. Elle s'étonne et étonne l'autre et lui donne l'envie de savoir.
Que ce soit avec des enfants, des ados ou des adultes, Meriem sait donner le plaisir d'apprendre parce qu'apprendre est pour elle une permanente découverte. Elle sait partager son envie de savoir et comprendre l'autre par la langue.

Me grata confesar que tuve la suerte de tener a Meriem Saber como mi profesora de de francés. Su pedagogía, su devoción por la enseñanza, su paciencia y su maestría, fueron decisivos para avanzar y mejorar mis habilidades comunicativas. Meriem Saber, más que una profesora es una fuente del saber que con mucha paciencia sacia nuestra curiosidad y nuestra sed como principiantes impacientes para dominar el idioma francés

About Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle, a world traveler/teacher who's here to help bring her experience and energy to students back home in California. I've taught various subjects such as test prep, English, history, and languages to students all over the world, such as China, France, and Ecuador. I've worked with students of all ages and love getting to know them to help figure out how they best learn.

I love learning languages in my spare time and practicing when I can. When I'm not looking a bit silly doing that, I'm usually reading, at a baseball game, hiking, or hanging out with friends. I keep active, making sure to run or climb a mountain when I can. However, it's equally as strong as my love for foods of all kinds.

I really look forward to getting to work with you and helping you with whatever I can!

About Yaelle
Bonjour !

I was born and raised in a small town in West of France where the speciality is... a handkerchief!

I have since lived in Belgium, Norway, Israel, Romania and now Texas following my husband who is a scientist. In every country, I taught French to several students and developped great tutoring skills from it.

Beside teaching and science, my passion in life is cooking! I will be more than happy to share French recipes with you so you can feel and taste some of the French culture.
