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.

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.
