Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

I've been teaching French for 13 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

My daughter Kira, who is 10 now, has been taking French lessons for almost two years with Alessandra. I can’t be happier with her progress! And I certainly can’t be happier with Aleksandra, who is not only a professor and can teach adults and teachers, but also has an amazing way with children!
My daughter loves her and always is looking forward to the next class, responsiby does her homework and able to teach me a few things :)
But what I truly appreciate as a parent as well, is that she is never late and always makes the day and time that has been arranged, which is very important with everyone’s busy schedules.
I would highly recommend Aleksandra for teaching children and adults!
My best friend is French, and I had Aleksandra over when my friend was visiting, my friend was impressed with her fluency of the language.

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao

Allez-viens! I have been speaking and studying French for over 10 years. It was my first foreign language and I am still so passionate about Francophonie that I truly enjoy facilitating the language learning process for others. I have a BA in French Comparative Literature and I have actually lived in France in a small and culturally rich town where learning the language was the only option. While there, I attended a French Université. My MA in education enables me to proactively tailor lessons to student needs, goals and strengths to ensure the most constructive and effective learning environment.

About Clarissa
I focus on the student. My approach and materials will vary depending on the progress, past experience and interests of the student. I want her or him to want to learn.My hobbies include backpacking, hiking, travel, reading, and language learning.

I am working on my Masters in Secondary English and currently hold an Associates in ECE, this combined with my extensive experience with the AP system and the time that I lived in and attended université in France make me qualified to tutor in these subjects and the satellite subject areas such as diction, study skills, reading and writing. I have experience learning four foreign languages in addition to English. It is my love of the learning process, patience and passion for these subjects, however, that are most efficacious in the tutoring process. Best of luck with your studies!

Stephanie is very professional. She teaches my daughter (9 YO) French and she is very imaginative, finding ways to keep the kid's attention. Her lessons are never annoying and she uses games, songs, craft activities. She thinks that the best way to learn is to keep it fun, and it works. My daughter improves a lot her French skills and she is always happy to go with Stephanie. Stephanie is very kind, attentive, patient. I warmly recommend her.
