Hello, I have been teaching languages for over 15 years, and I love to see my students grow and develop. I speak 4 languages (French, Hebrew, English & Japanese) so I know what it takes to learn a language. It's much more than just "words"!
I lived in Japan for 7.5 years where I taught English as a second language.
Now I teach Japanese for beginners, French, and Hebrew at all levels.
Let me take you on a cultural journey where you not only learn to speak and read basic Japanese but understand the intricate cultural nuances of Japan, it's magical!
Looking forward to meeting you.

About Orion LauRence C.

Hello,
I am Orion, I am French, Israeli, Australian and live in the USA now. I have been teaching languages for over 15 years in various countries around the world and love seeing my students grow and develop.
As I speak 4 languages, I know how hard it can be to learn to pronounce and place the words in the right order. More importantly, understanding the context of what you want to say and what is being said to you!

So when you learn with me, you get much more than just vocab and grammar, but also cultural input so to know why you are saying what you are saying and where & when to say it!
Also, there is no point to know a language if when in need, you ask a question but do not understand the answer! lol...yes, been there too! That is what my teaching is all about, two-way COMMUNICATION!
I look forward to meeting you and start a great learning journey with you.

I consider myself a challenged beginner in Hebrew and Orion is patient and kind, and manages to add humor to my learning. She is willing to break down the nuances of the language in the easiest of terms, when needed. I can tell she would be a phenomenal instructor for more advanced learners as well. I look forward to my continued lessons!

Orion is a very patient and attentive teacher. She makes sure that every aspect of the lesson is covered fully, meaning if I didn't understand something she'd go into depth and find examples until it was clear and made sure I know how to use the new words and tools I learned.
My confidence was boosted as I practiced more and more.
All in all, she is a great teacher. Highly recommend her!
