I am a fluent French speaker with a over a decade of experience in teaching French and English. I am a very easy-going, professional person. I have been tutoring since the age of 16.

I started professionally tutoring French and English after graduating in 2005 with LLB French Law and English Law. I have solid work experience tutoring English, French and English law and additional experience teaching business studies and Croatian language.
I have a strong background when it comes to translation and interpreting legal business and technical documents.

As well as teaching I have work experience working in both Business Development and Legal Industry.

In 2010 I moved to Los Angeles and I work for an examination center. Additionally I give private French and English lessons.

I always try to make my lessons fun and enjoyable. I have experience teaching special needs children with autism, hearing difficulties and ADHD. I can tailor my classes to my student’s needs and I can do both face to face or online classes.

Joya was fantastic! Patient and encouraged a conversational approach to learning which was exactly what I was looking for and needed! Would definitely hire again!

I have been taking French lessons with Joya for three months. Joya is knowledgable in French and French culture, as well as patient and responsible as a teacher. I also appreciate her being accommodating to my schedule. I am a full-time phd student, hoping to learn some French in the limited time I have. She planned for lessons based on my requests, utilizing each one-hour lesson. I enjoy learning French with her and recommend her as a French teacher.

Joya undertook the translation of technical guidance (a construction standard) from English into French. She consulted well on the exact translation of technical terms, delivered on time and to budget. The translation has been well received by french colleagues for whom it was prepared.
