Karheen is wonderful. She quickly makes you feel at ease. And for someone who is self conscious about speaking French, this is just what I needed. I’ve taken lessons in the past. Karheen leverages what I know and compliments it with new things. The learning space is warm and welcoming. She is very flexible with scheduling. You can’t go wrong by choosing to work with her.Sep 23, 2018Verified

This has been a wonderful learning experience so far. She is very flexible and encouraging during lessons. She gears lessons toward your need. Above all she is very patient and willing to go at your pace. I would recommend her to anyone trying to learn a Spanish.Dec 2, 2017
Kareen is an absolutely amazing teacher! She is also a very friendly person who is easy to communicate with. I am always comfortable in our lessons, she provides a great learning environment and has a positive energy that keeps you motivated. There is so much value in each lesson and I leave each time having truly learned and understood new things rather than just memorizing phrases. I look forward to continuing my lessons and would recommend Kareen to anyone who is looking at learn a new language.Aug 31, 2017Verified
So far, I'm loving my Spanish lessons with Kareen. She's extremely patient and kind. I feel like I've learned so much already! Kareen clearly loves what she does, and that makes her ideal for the job.Jun 17, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees are very reasonable and they include all the paper work for Spanish and ESL English Lessons. Students learning French should contact me to determine the material fee which is minimal. Students pay for a minimum of four hours, and they are encouraged to take their lessons seriously and attend class on a regular basis. The numbers of sessions per week will depend on the student.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once a student agrees to begin sessions, we would agree on a convenient schedule for both the student/s and myself and begin. After the initial session we can either agree on a set schedule or allow for some flexibility depending on the student/s. I try to make it as flexible for you as possible. I also let you decide how many hours per week you would like to meet.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been working on my languages skills in the sense of tutoring and teaching others ever since I was in high school. I started learning English when I was nine years old, German at the age of 12 and Spanish at age 17. French is my native language, and I also have an African language (Abbey) that I speak. I love languages and they come naturally to me. I love teaching others and this is easy for me because I truly enjoy what I do. I simply love languages. I have undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
