Private French Teacher

I am a current private tutor and entrepreneur with 9+ years of experience FEATURED ON FORBES 30 UNDER 30 in 2016.

I strive to not just teach the subject, but also the psychology of elite test-takers, to not just get you ready for one test, but to also teach you the process that allows for repeated & continued success.

With my quadrilingual ability, I created “La Méthode” or in English, The Method, a tutoring style combining the best of the American and the French approachs to learning so that students can learn from world-renowned theories at the same time as they discover more practical examples to delve into.

French is my mother tongue, I have specialized at teaching beginners and more advanced learners the subtlety and style of these languages. In the past, I designed French cultural classes for the U.S. military and translated 200+ expressions to and from English and performed voiceover for 10+ pronunciation videos for a language program.

About Aziz

I have changed environments many times, settling in Paris after living in Morocco for eighteen years then moving to a complete new world, here in the USA. Helped by the fact that I am quadrilingual, I am quite used to interact with people from different backgrounds. While I love helping students un

Private French Teacher

Parlez-vous français? French was the first foreign language I learned, and it was definitely a gateway language. I loved learning every detail of the grammar, every rule, every inevitable exception. I took advanced courses at UCI as well as studied in a French university for a semester, so I have lots of materials for us to work with.

French is such a beautiful language! No wonder a lot of poets and composers were and still are inspired of the sound of it! Whether you want to get better grades in school or you just be able to have a simple conversation on vacation I'd love to introduce you to the most beautiful language in the world!

Online French Teacher

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

I've been studying Russian with Elena (Lena) for about three years. Previously, I had roughly the equivalent of one university year of Russian and hadn't enjoyed it as much due to the pace of the class among other things. However, I've stayed with Russian, as difficult as it has been for me, in large part due to Lena. She's extremely patient and competent, so I've gotten a lot out of the weekly and bi-weekly lessons. She also speaks good French, so it's been helpful, as the languages I know best are English and French. Спасибо, Лена !
Andy
I can't say enough about Helen. She is an absolutely wonderful teacher, and that's saying a lot because as a college professor and lawyer, I tend to have pretty high standards. I've been meeting with Helen for over four years and continue to be impressed with her mastery of grammar, vocabulary, style, and nuance, which is rivaled only by her cultural knowledge and unyielding patience. She teaches with a delicate touch but always makes her point understood. She does not obsesses over minor mistakes and gives you the space to practice without stopping you every second to correct you. She's always willing to review old lessons and connect them to new ones to reinforce your learning. I learn something new each time we sit down and practice. If you're looking for the perfect tutor, look no further. You've found her.
Erin
I can't recommend Helen enough! I studied Russian in high school and college, but it has been several years since I have studied it intensely. Helen quickly sized up my abilities and focused in on where I was lacking. We have been working together for several months now, and her class is the highlight of my week. Her positivity is infectious, and she continues to challenge me as an intermediate/advanced student!

"I have been working with Jean-Luc for about 2 years now. I had zero schooling in French before beginning with Jean-Luc. I have learned all vocabulary and sentencing structures on my own and with Jean-Luc. Although I cannot speak yet with ease, I certainly know WAY more French than I had ever learned in the 5 years of Spanish that I had in school. Jean-Luc is very patient and asks lots of questions to help with your conversational skills. I cannot recommend Jean-Luc enough!!"

"I picked Zach because he is from Paris and my husband and I just returned from a trip there. We want to go back next year with improved communication abilities. Zach will not only be able to teach us the language we want to know, but also give us tips about Paris and France in general from a native's point of view.
Zach started me out perfectly for my first French lesson. It was challenging enough but not overwhelming. I love that (for a part of it) he recorded me so I could hear what I sounded I sound like speaking French -very helpful!! He has given me just enough to work on between lessons and left me motivated for what's to come!"
