The reason people have "accents" is because they speak a foreign language using the grammatical and phoenetic rules of their native language. This is easily corrected and I am the one to show you how!

Hola, Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! Spanish is my native language and I've always been fascinated by its grammar, its phonetics and beauty in general. But learning other languages has also being one of my passions. I am fortunate to be proficient in two languages (Spanish

My goal is to ensure my student will converse in French, not just claims that he or she once spoke French. The idea behind learning a language is earning the ability to practice with native speakers. My teaching goes beyond the session I spend with the student. I will provide guidance and follow-up on things the student will do between sessions, because learning should be continuous. I will also ensure that lessons offer the just right challenge. Too challenging becomes a nuisance and not challenging enough becomes a bore. You're spending hard-earned money, and I want my lessons to be worth every penny.

About Kays

My goal is for you to learn French. French can be quite tricky and it requires commitment, perseverance, and practice. Do not give up. Study hard and use everyday resources to practice. Nowadays, you can easily spend hours per week with French speakers if you take the right steps. I believe in supp

Kays made teaching a breeze and an enjoyable experience for my son who has special needs. We've had Kays teaching my son for over 3 years and my son learned so much that now he has many French friends that he speaks with them in French 80% of the time.

My strong interest for languages oriented me towards a "Literature Baccalaureate" for which I studied - among other fields - German, English, Ancient Greek and Latin, and graduated Summa cum Laude in 2010. After high school, I went on to study for five years at Sciences Po Paris, France's elite school for social and political sciences.

Learning about the hidden history of words and the construction of sentences has always fascinated me, and I strongly believe that this is what makes the difference between a regular native speaker, and one who can actually transmit his knowledge of the language. Writing and speaking a proper french is not enough. When it comes to teaching, one has to be able to explain the "why" behind each word, idiom and grammatical rule, because that is how we remember best. Combined with a burning desire to understand movies, songs and books in their original version, this method makes wonders. Because as my best teacher once told me : “ We get into a culture ...

John
I am an intermediate level student, mostly self-taught looking to fill in the gaps of my learning and improve both my written and oral expression. I have very much appreciated Soleine's flexibility, and her ability to diagnose and prescribe exercises for my weaknesses.

As a native speaker, I also enjoy collateral cultural learnings, as well as her ability to serve as a reality check on the utility of expressions I have learned elsewhere.
Michael
Soleine has been extremely helpful and instrumental in learning French. I’ve seen progress and have overcome (mostly) the fear of making mistakes when speaking the language.
Michael
Soleine exhibits a lot of patience, which is helpful when learning a new language. Also, she explains how to speak and pronounce, while adding grammar lessons in the process. Looking forward to additional lessons with Soleine!

Amazing !
Agnes
My 4.5 year old daughter had her first piano lesson with Jingci. I had learned how to play piano when I was a kid, so I could tell Jingci knows how to teach the basic foundation very well. She's firm yet patient and got my daughter to follow her instructions even though her attention span isn't that great at her age.

Ms. Liu is so kind and patient. Great to know her and study with her.

"I am almost seventy years old. When I thought of traveling to the Middle East, I spent a year trying to learn basic Arabic- I bought books, videos, and even an online program. I spent so much money but couldn't learn it well. I thought maybe I just was not able to because of my age or because it was too difficult.

I saw Aaron's page online by chance and decided to give it one last try. Aaron is so skilled in how he teaches- he is creative and clever and humorous. His patience with me increased my confidence and interest in continuing to learn Arabic even after my trip. After three months of lessons with Aaron, I finally have a grasp on the language and feel comfortable traveling. I look forward to my lessons when I return.

Thank you so much Aaron."
