Rezene T.
Excellent. Majed is a natural teacher. He knows how effectively to communicate with his student. He is fast in identifying the need of his student and in developing effective teaching method and communication approach. He has already created a positive learning environment. The lesson has been conducted 80% in Arabic and 20% in English. The objective is, with improvement on my part, to conduct the lesson 100% in Arabic. I have made a good choice and I am happy.

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

I am a native Spanish speaker and can speak, read, and write Spanish fluently. I use the Berlitz method to teach Spanish, and I can provide my students with hand outs so that they can understand and practice their skills fully as they go along. Spanish students of all ages and levels are welcome, from beginners to advanced students. At the end of each class, we will have a short conversation session to practice the skills you learned in class. so you will know exactly how to use your new skills.

I have been taking lessons from Maryen for three months now. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the right Spanish teacher, especially beginners such as myself. She has designed my lessons around the skills that I need in order to achieve my goals. Even though I have only been studying Spanish for three months my grasp of the language has grown quickly. I have her to thank for that.
Jack M.
I have had quite a few lessons with Maryen and I am extremely pleased with the results. I feel that I am progressing at a steady pace and I am learning something new every lesson. Maryen has been helping me with my pronunciation which is very important. You want to sound like a native speaker. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning spanish.

I really enjoyed my first lesson with Maryen. She immediately make me feel comfortable and at ease. She made a corse of action so I can learn as t my own pace but will accomplish my goals. I would highly recommend her.
