Bonjour, je m’appelle Nour. I grew up in Tunisia, it’s a country boarded by the mediterranean sea that is only 2 hours away from France (flight). Tunisia was colonized by France, therefore, we speak French as a second language. I always try to make people feel confident speaking it, because to me it’s an easy and fancy language.
I look forward to this opportunity.
À bientôt

I am a Deaf fluent communicator, instructor, and performer in ASL. I founded Loud n Clear Musik to teach music and sign language to both the hearing and the Deaf world. ASL lessons can also be taken for art, music, and ministry purposes. My lessons are for students of all kinds to help them better communicate, understand, and connect with the Deaf friends, families, community, customers & clients, and peers. I communicate in ASL non-stop with all Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind. I can teach you ASL effectively, fitting your level with ease, and with lots of fun!! I also communicate (and speak) very well in two other languages: English and Spanish. I can teach individually or teach a class.

The lessons can be Intro/Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced. Your lessons will be planned according to your needs. For example, Basic Lessons will consist of learning the fingers and coordination exercises, alphabets, numbers, basic signs and communication for friends, family & relatives, ...

Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. Spanish is my native language.
I also hold a Bachelor's on Biological Science from Roosevelt University with a minor in Chemistry. I have take classes like Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience. Also General and Organic Chemistry. General Physics and Math up to Calculus. I offer tutoring on Biology, General Chemistry and Math.

Being bilingual have been a great advantage for me, especially at work. That's why I offer Spanish lessons and tutoring, from beginning to advance levels.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

My husband and I had a great experience taking beginning Chinese lessons with Monique. We didn't know a lick of Chinese, and now we feel pretty comfortable with basic communication. We're moving to Beijing next month, so Monique was great at tailoring our lessons to our specific needs (for instance, restaurant, airport, and "getting around" vocab). She's a great, patient teacher and is very flexible with scheduling.

"I am an adult beginner in Spanish and needed to learn the language quickly for some upcoming travel. Javier has done a wonderful job at making me feel comfortable with my pronunciation and I feel that I am progressing at a good pace. His lessons are educational and fun and his homework assignments are very worthwhile. I can recommend him for beginners all the way to advanced Spanish as it is his native language and his teaching methods are perfect for absorbing and remembering the idiosyncrasies as well as the general rules for the Spanish language in terms of grammar, structure and pronunciation. You will not find a more personable, effective or informed Spanish teacher."
