About Marie K.

Indulge yourself by learning languages. It opens your prospect to a new different world with a different culture, you feel like you gain a new person and a new experience while networking with new people around you. I personally admire languages and would like to share this passion with you. I invite you to start expanding your horizon by choosing a new language.
I came recently to U.S. and I was tutoring languages "Arabic, French and English" back in my country. I hope to build a good reputation here too with my students. I'm so patient toward kids, and I like to innovate methods to engage early learners (songs, stories, games...). My only goal is to reach your needs and desire to learn then proceed from there in a fun immersion method.

I setup a pack of Arabic lessons for my son. He was a bit nervous heading into them, however, was very very encouraged after the lesson. He thought Marie was great. He felt like he learned much more than he thought possible and that it was a very fun process. Thx!

Marie is very professional and flexible. Her lessons are age appropriate and fun. She is willing to make changes to lessons based on parent feedback. Overall, my kids (ages 9 and 12) are learning French and having fun. Merci, Marie!

I have been taking Arabic lessons with Marie for several months, now. The passion and dedication with which she approaches every class is amazing. She is always well prepared, patient, and keeps the student's best interest in mind. I, myself, used to work in education for over ten years, and now, as Marie's student, I must say that Marie is absolutely born to teach! I would wholeheartedly recommend her.

Marie is an incredible instructor. She is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable. She worked with me to find out which skills I was missing and targeted them! I highly recommend working with Marie.

Marie is very knowledgeable, patient, focused, and pleasant to work with. She knows how to transfer knowledge. Looking forward to my next class with her.

Marie is an effective, patient, and kind teacher. I had been studying Arabic for years with different teachers and had not seen much improvement. I had gotten very comfortable with the alphabet, but that was all my teachers seemed to focus on. When I started working with Marie, however, I very quickly made significant progress. She helped me build a foundation of vocabulary that I actually cared to learn so the grammar could flow more easily. I would highly recommend Marie to anyone wanting to learn Arabic (or French for that matter!).

Marie is awesome! She is very patient and thorough. I wanted to work on my accent and pronunciation, and I already feel myself improving even though we are only a few lessons in.

Marie has done a great job teaching my kids Arabic. She is professional and utilizes class time efficiently. Additionally, she is patient and makes learning fun. I highly recommend her as she puts 100% effort and wants to see students progress and succeed. We are happy to have found her.

Starting out as a complete beginner in French, Marie took the time to make sure the pace and style of tutoring was right for me. Now, I'm grasping the language quicker than I ever thought I would. Marie makes our lessons very comprehensive and fun, I would highly recommend her!!

With pleasure I recommend Ms Marie (as the children knew and loved her for the past two years) for her devoted work at Wee Care preschool. She was very supportive and she assisted me with instructional responsibilities during the last year. She has compassionate attitude to the kids and strong understanding of child development plus to her excellent communication skills.

She is an amazing instructor! I have seen huge improvement immediately on my son. She makes learning so much fun so my 7 year old son is always looking forward to her class. He learned more with her in a few classes then he did in private school. Highly recommend her

Marie did a wonderful job working with our clients' children for an Arabic Language and Culture Camp at the Iraqi Mutual Aid Society. She was professional, organized, compassionate, and creative. She was very cooperative with me and children loved her. I would recommend her for any position she applies for.
