My teaching methodology is based on active learning through discussions, dialogues and listening, as well as by assimilating essential vocabulary and understanding written grammar properly. Each class lasts one hour during which I will interrogate students on topics that we have covered the week before. My courses are very linked to the level of the student and can be managed as the course is going. The first lesson is aimed at finding the key issues and the ways they can be solved.
I am a second year biochemistry student at UCL. I grew up in Paris my whole life and I come from a multicultural background, my mother being Indian and my father being French. I have already given Maths and English classes to students aged 9 to 15 in Paris for 2 years.

Mira is an excellent and very friendly tutor. She taught me intermediate level french and helped me to pass a few accreditation exams. I would highly recommend Mira for anyone seeking to understand, speak, write or read french.
I started learning French at home through YouTube videos but without any results. I then found Mira on superprof and thanks to her great lessons, I have made a great leap in my learning of this difficult yet beautiful language. Mira is always on time, has the ability to explain any grammar and punctuation rules, but more importantly, she is patient.
I definitely recommend her if you wish to learn French quickly and efficiently.
I took French class with Mira in my final year of highschool in order to pass my end of year exam. Mira has been an outstanding tutor, who made her best to ensure my better understanding of the language and to be prepared to the best for my exams! Thanks to her, i achieved my goal!
