FAQ

  • How long is a typical class?
     

The length of a class may vary from 1h to 2h. Standardized tests lessons usually last 75 minutes. 

However, we can adapt the length depending on the time and needs a student may have.
 

  • What are the costs of tutoring sessions?
     

The price of a session will vary depending on the type of service being given. For example, a corporate workshop will be priced differently than traditional one-on-one. If you are interested in scheduling a lesson, please contact Marianne at marianne@marianneak.org for more information or please fill out the contact form located above.

  • Will I have the same instructor each week?
     

Yes, you will have the same instructor.
 

  • Where do you offer lessons?
     

We teach both online and in person, depending on the student's needs and situation. For in-person lessons, we can travel to your place or you can come to Marianne's place. For online lessons, we use the platform Zoom.

  • How do I get a tutor?
     

To get a tutor, either fill out the contact form or contact someone directly via e-mail. If you need information on multiple tutors, contact Marianne, our founder at marianne@marianneak.org and she will help you choose the one who most fits your needs. 

 

  • I have never been good with foreign languages, How do I know your program will work?
     

Marianne, the pedagogical director and highest-ranking teacher in the organization, has immense experience with making curriculums that are tailored specifically to a student’s needs. If there is a school curriculum that needs to be followed, tutors will honor that. Using a multi sensorial approach, Marianne engages her students during lessons to ensure a deeper understanding than going right from a book. For example, sometimes a French lesson may be held at an art gallery or museum, where the student will express unique thoughts about works of art, gaining a wider vocabulary and grammatical understanding for situations outside the classroom. 

  • Will your tutors motivate my child?
     

Within Marianne’s philosophy is dedication and strong work ethic. She and the other tutors will ensure that if a child appears to be losing interest, there will be a discussion to find the cause, which will then be addressed. It is completely possible to alter a curriculum or style of teaching if it will benefit the learning environment for the student and contribute to their work ethic.
