Introduction: Hallo/Salut/Hi, my name is Caroline Phillips. I am one of the two co-owners of LingualMuse and the Head teacher on the LingualMuse Language Team. I am trilingual in German, French, and English. I worked on two different continents and have lived in Germany, Britain, Belgium, and the US! I have worked in languages throughout my career, and I am always developing and improving my teaching methods, as I believe that learning is a lifelong event ! We work with students of all ages and language levels from Beginner to Advanced! A little about me: I was fortunate to work for the Foreign Service Institute as part of the State Department in DC. While I was there, I learned how to prepare a team of US delegates for their language assignments for their time serving the US government abroad. I was trained to teach German as well as French in a 9 month period, going from beginner to fluency, and successfully passing their government language testing. I really enjoy teaching dedicated and conscientious students that like learning fascinating and useful languages as much as me. I believe that well-kept language skills will enhance both your personal life and career. They expand your horizons and enable you to successfully connect with others around the globe. Watching our students succeed under my guidance and bringing out their best is my target 🎯, and my reward 🏆. About LingualMuse: We have been in business for four years. We mainly offer private classes but also have partner, semi-private and immersion events too. Classes are conducted using the ZOOM online meeting platform and we provide an open and online calendar for easy scheduling. Our growing team of Language Professionals now teach 9 languages! English (ESL with accent reduction if wanted). French. German. Spanish. Portuguese, Mandarin, Russian, Italian and Arabic Book an Introductory Package with us TODAY! Let us help you reach your language goals. We look forward to meeting you!

German Lessons

I hired LingalMuse to learn German as I have struggled to learn the finer points of the language for several years now. I was quickly and professionally given the option to always work amongst several tutors that perfectly fit my skill level, schedule and the time constraints needed for my progression. All staff and tutors thus far have been top notch, and accommodated any questions or concerns I have had regarding my studies, payment plans, and scheduling of courses in the most timely and professional manner of any business I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Their system of learning varies by individual need and instruction style of the tutor, but isn’t solely the normal boring memorization and recitation drills that I had come accustomed to in the past. (Although there are some of these, but this is par for the course when learning any new language). Should anyone have need of a tutor; I would not hesitate for an instant to refer them to Joe, Caroline and the team at LingalMuse. If you wish to learn a language correctly in a fun and non judgmental environment (often from native speakers), have a bit of fun, and see your knowledge and progression quickly grow; I can’t recommend them enough.

German Lessons

I have had the pleasure of working with Caroline for 2 years now, and I have nothing but great things to say about my German lessons with her! As a teacher, she always comes prepared for our lessons, and is always available to answer my questions in her free time as well. She has adapted our lessons based on my progress and it has helped me further develop my German. Lingualmuse as a company was always very supportive in helping me find a lesson plan that best suited my schedule and finances. I would highly recommend Lingualmuse and Caroline to anyone looking to learn a new language!

Spanish Lessons

Great experience with both Linguamuse and my teacher Nathalia. My native language is French but I live in the US. I wanted to find a way to learn Spanish with a French speaking teacher. LinguaMuse connected me with Nathalia. She adapted her method and teaching style to my needs, and she is making the learning process fun. LingaMuse also offered a package just to try it and see if it worked for me, that was a big factor in deciding to go for it. Highly recommended!

This review will address 2 people, Joe and Zaray. Joe is warm, accommodating and straightforward. Most people in admin are polite but they beat around the bush. I have faith that Joe will explain every minute a customer is paying for in depth, if asked. Even if he senses that a parent is slightly unhappy he will go to great lengths to make it right. He found my kids a good fit as non native Spanish speakers, in Zaray. Joe is a text away. I cannot commend on how awesome that convenience is. In a pandemic this language service is one less thing to worry about. Zaray is a native spanish speaker. She is easy going which compliments well with my type A personality. I specifically asked for a lenient teacher as she is dealing with 2 of my kids, one who turned 5 after she began with Zaray. Zaray is professional and personable at the same time. She has a great rapport with my kids but with boundaries that they respect. She revises, repeats enough times for the kids to be drilled with any vocab. She was a good fast paced teacher for me , so do not be deceived by her outlook. She can pick up on anything the kids are saying and doing and intentionally puts spanish into the mix. I look forward to how she carries on for the next few months. There has never been any un necessary burden of home work and even after the kids have been tested , she always gets back to me with an unbiased result. Please note that the teachers are not burdened with scheduling which is a plus point as they can only focus on the lessons.

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I am going to assess my students language capability, start planning my students study schedule as well as getting a clear understanding of what the students own expectations for our language lessons are.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been teaching consistently for over 10 years in Europe as well as in the USA and feel well equipped to helping students to improve their own language skills.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started tutoring as a student in college and felt hat it came easy to me to teach someone or even a whole group of students how to learn a language. I have been doing this for over 13 years now. I feel happy to see students succeed and feel blessed to have found my dream profession !
