She really took the time to understand what I need and worked with me to help me with my breathing and technique. I am definitely taking more lessons from Benedetta.

I've had 5 lessons with Benedetta and she is fantastic. She focuses on technique which is so important for singers to master. I made progress after my first lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!

Bgcheck Background Checked


I am fluent in Arabic. I came up with a way to teach Arabic for children combining everyday language with the classic Arabic that most children find difficult. I am familiar with the different Arabic regions dialects and can determine how to start the learning process depending on the students interests and their needs to learn this language. Children will also learn how to speak, read and write . Our sessions will depend on conversations more than boring grammar rules that most children don't like. In addition, the student will learn about the culture of the different regions. I traveled and lived in several countries and very familiar with the traditions and the heritage. Sessions will be personalized depending on each individual's interest.
I can also teach the different Arabic dialects and I can teach the Middle Eastern cuisine. The Arabic culture is very rich and my online sessions will be a one of a kind experience.

The best of the best
Fawn is my daughters voice and piano coach and I could not be any happier with the instant results. We have tried many other voice coaches and there was only steady improvement. After One session with Fawn my daughter booked a voice over national job. She was able to apply all the tools Fawn showed her and it paid off.
As for the piano classes, after 6 months of piano at a traditional school she still had not learned the notes or much of anything, after 2 classes with Fawn she is now reading notes and playing songs off the book and she couldn't be happier.
I highly recommend Fawn

Fawn is very professional, experienced, and a lot of fun to work with. She's taught all skill levels, so she knows how to control the pace. I suck at all this so she's had to apply music theory on me to go along with the hands on teaching. I would definitely recommend choosing Fawn as a teacher!

"I've been working with Ana since August 2018, and she's been great. As I'm somewhat advanced, we mainly focus on conversation. What I like most about Ana is that she allows me to speak a lot, while correcting me when I make a mistake. Other tutors sometimes speak too much. Ana also selects very interesting material to work on during our lessons, which help build vocabulary. She can also provide good grammatical revisions if this is of interest. I highly recommend Ana!"

Introduction to French Grammar: How to Ask a Question

In French, like in English, you can often make a statement into a question just by raising your voice at the end. However, that's not the only way the French might pose a question, and as you learn French you're likely to come across many other variations. It's a good idea to get all the other forms of interrogative sentence under your belt as well. 1. Question words. Just like English, French question words can be used to start off a sentence you want to turn into a question. These words take …
