My name is Munya and I'm from the United States but I've also lived in New York, Tunisia, and Paris.
Since an early age, I've loved languages, travel, and exploring different cultures. I've had to learn other languages myself (Arabic and French), so I know the dedication and persistence that it takes to learn a foreign language. It's not easy but it's worth it!
I have been teaching English for 10 years and I am TESOL-certified. Teaching English is a passion of mine and there is nothing more rewarding than helping a student understand a difficult, new concept or use a new phrase in conversation. I've taught everyone from Yemeni immigrants in Brooklyn to Japanese high school students to Spanish students online.
I can help with conversation, pronunciation, grammar, job interview preparation, and anything else you'd like to work on.
Je m'appelle Monia et je viens des Etats-Unis. J'ai vécu aussi à New York, en Tunisie et à Paris.
J'adore les langues et les cultures différentes. Comme j'ai dû étudier des langues étrangères (l'arabe et le français), je sais ce qu'il faut faire pour apprendre une langue. Ce n'est pas facile mais ça en vaut la peine!
Si vous souhaitez parler anglais avec moi, n'hésitez pas à me contacter. A bientôt, j'espère!
