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.

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!

My first French lesson ever with Zach was great. He’s a really nice guy and was super patient with me. Definitely looking forward to continued sessions with him.

I took French before and did not see myself improving at all. Took it with Zach this time and I actually see myself learning. He makes you record yourself so you can hear what you sound like and that really improves pronunciation (especially for me being Arab since French pronunciation is nothing like Arabic) because you get to see how people hear you talk and that leaves a lot of room for improvement, plus hearing yourself talk over and over helps your mind to remember what you learned (you won’t learn it and then forget it by the next lesson).

"Roman tutored me in French twice a week for several months. He was teaching me the fundamentals of the language in preparation for a planned three week trip to France. I had studied French many years ago in high school so I was essentially a beginner.
Roman came to my home for two hour lessons. He was never late. He was patient and kind but persistent in pushing me to do the best I could. He always had a lesson outline with lots of excellent study material to leave with me after each lesson.
At one point he had to go back to his home for family matters. During that time he stayed in contact and send lessons via the Internet. The lessons always included homework assignments which he would correct and send back to me, there was no charge to me for these efforts. He's a fair and honest man as well as an excellent teacher.
My trip to France was a richer and more rewarding experience as a result of his efforts. In addition to the language instruction he gave me a good deal of information about regions to visit, places to see, and restaurants use.
I have no reservation in recommending Roman as a teacher as well as a fine human being to be associated with."

"I enjoy our lessons. For me, having a native French speaker is very important. It allows me to hear the language how it is “naturally” spoken. This helps when you visit a Francophone country or come across a native when it comes to listening & comprehension. It allows you to better understand the language when spoken. Also, it helps you to learn the proper pronunciation, how different conversations flow and so much more. I definitely appreciate Jean-Luc! He is very patient and understanding. If I am curious about anything in regards to our lessons or the French culture he is more than willing to stop and explain."
