My name is Mirchaye pronounced "Mer-Shy." I was born in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, where I was raised and completed my high school education. I attended a Lycee Francais, which is where I learned French. Fan Fact: It was the first language I learned how to read and write in even before my native language: Amharic.
At 17, I moved to the U.S., where I currently reside pursuing a career in Communications/Media.
For as long as I can remember, I loved to write and teach. My love for writing began when I got my first journal in the 8th grade. I loved it and wrote in it literally everyday. And, I first started teaching as an English Teaching Assistant volunteer at an orphanage in Ethiopia. I then also started teaching French.
Once I moved to the US and was attending college, I saw the need for language tutors so I applied for a job as French Tutor. I worked there till I graduated college. Another fun fact: My first paid job was as a French Tutor. After college, I taught private French classes to high school and college students.
I now speak about 4 languages fluently. I will make learning fun & exciting. And, coming from a background of speaking different languages I know hoe best to teach someone a totally different language. I understand the learning curve in other words. I am currently teaching my husband, who's American, Amharic and it's been fun.
I look forward to working with you.
I loved her enthusiasm, professionalism and how she was always prepared to give her lesson. Indeed a great instructor! Merci Mirchaye🤗🤗
It is such a pleasure to have Mirchaye as my tutor. She loves what she does and helps her students reach their goals. She's very passionate about helping people better their language skill and makes sure that her students become successful in mastering the French language.Show More
Mirchaye was extremely friendly and kind. She is quick to respond regarding appointments and scheduling. She provides me with feedback regularly on how I'm progressing, which I think is vital. She is always punctual and professional. I would highly recommend her tutoring service!Show More
Mirchaye's in-depth knowledge of the French language, coupled with her patience and discipline makes her my number 1 choice. My nieces and myself took French language lessons with her; and I was always amazed by her timeliness, simplicity, as well as the attention she gives to details, such as taking her time to help us practice the French accent:) I would recommend Mirchaye for individuals of any age,because she can easily blend with everyone.Show More
If you’ve always pined for the language of the Sun King( le roi soleil ) and drooled for escargot and foi gras, then Mirchaye is the one person you must absolutely go for! She thoroughly knows about the contemporary life of a Parisian and engages the students in fun savvy exercises and activities that after a short while you babble all your subjunctives and passé composés with your eyes closed. Her methods are effective and non-conventional, strongly focusing on conversational skills and aptitude. She has the kindness and patience of an angle, and no matter how many times you mix-up the hard-to-get grammatical tenses, she will be there for you to carry the burden and guide you through! Just have a chat with her and see how her spunk and soft voice ‘Frenchise’ you in a split second!Show More
