Hello friends,

I grew up speaking both English and Arabic, so I am equally fluent in both. I lived in the Middle East for over 10 years where I continued learning both conversational Arabic and formal arabic. Arabic-speaking countries have a wide variety of dialects, most of which I can easily speak and understand.

I have significant teaching history as well. When I moved to the US in 2012, I tutored at my local University. I also continued tutoring and teaching into graduate school, albeit not Arabic. This experience allows me to teach according to your specific needs and skill level.

One thing I would say is that there is no need to pay the excruciatingly expensive cost that many instructors request. I love teaching the language and would love to provide access to anyone without cost being a significant factor.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me with them.

About Ismail

If you are looking for an affordable, experienced instructor that can cater to your specific needs, you have come to the right place. I am passionate about teaching and spreading the beautiful language of Arabic.

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whom levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress.

Andrew
Philippe has all the hallmarks of a great instructor- patient, engaging. He was great at sharing resources of different grammar sites, French podcasts, and news websites so that we could continue to develop our abilities outside of sessions.

There were plenty of times after working virtually all day, the last thing I wanted was to look at a screen, but our exercises were captivating. That speaks to his approach.
Also, he's judicious with his feedback which I appreciate.

Merci Philippe!
gretchen
Phillippe finds a way to make every class entertaining! The time went by fast and I learned a ton!
Monty
I am an older learner and Philippe has great patience with me even though it is a bit harder to pick up some of the language concepts as my younger classmates.

Philippe tailored our learning to not be from a book but used role-playing exercises to use French in a more realistic, fun, yet non-threatening manner.

I hope to have him again as an instructor and highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn French.

I am native German and teach happy and successful students for a long time.

I can't really talk too much about how other teachers work, and also don't want to. But I know I have and always had many happy and successful students. From kids, adults, professionals, hobbyists to people who retired and finally have time to fulfill a life goal.

I have quite a few students who have German in school and it is a pleasure to see how they improve since there is mostly not really the time at all to go over details in school and my experience is that most students who don't have native parents, need simply help in order to succeed and get good grades.

Marcel is an extremely capable German tutor. He has an extensive understanding of German and will out of his way to help you learn.
Friederike
I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)

I do my best to figure out your learning style so you feel comfortable and make progress quickly. I lived and worked in France and had a bunch of French friends, including a French boyfriend who didn't speak English so I was constantly challenged to learn the language well. I have a good sense of humor and try to make the lessons as challenging as you need them to be while providing a relaxed supportive environment. I look forward to working with you!

About Amy

Hello. I was born in Korea and was raised there for more than 18 years. My first language is Korean, and I have been teaching students from take lessons and another academy. I can teach you from beginner level, and you will be able to see the improvement in speaking, writing, listening, and reading skills in Korean. If you are interested in focusing on only one skill or vice versa, we are always available to adjust our lessons according to our discussion. I know that learning another language is not easy. We will go through step by step, and you will feel more comfortable in opening your eyes to the language.

I am very happy with my drawing lessons with Seonjung. She's a good teacher and so kind. I wanted to learn digital art. She is helping me with line art, color, light, and shadowing. I look forward to my lessons.
Jake
Seonjung is the most patient, knowledgeable, and kindhearted art teacher that I have ever worked with. It has been an absolute honor and pleasure to learn from her. With Seonjung's help, my fashion sketches have gone from being very unrealistic to extremely realistic. A++ for her
Grace
She is very kind and passionate.
I’ve been taking the class for 2 month and I can actually tell that my drawings improved in such a short time.
She teaches from the very basic and that helped a lot.
