Hi ,

I am a native French speaker teacher, I have a Bachelor's degree in French Law and 6 years of language teaching experience in USA. Teaching French is my current career, so this is what I do for living everyday with dedication, patience and endurance to make learning French for my students a fun journey.

I am so proud (as well as my director) of the number of emails and positive feedback I received from satisfied families who had their children live the experience of learning French as a second language with me. If you are a beginner or an intermediate student who wants to start learning and build a solid base to reach fluency quickly, feel free to hire me to enjoy learning and start speaking in a short time. my fun immersion method and my theme based curriculum are what you need to reach the advanced level of fluency. see you

My son felt very comfortable with Saïd right from the start. Saïd is very warm and natural with his students. His level of French is exceptional and he motivates the children to try their best every day. I am happy with the French and other school/social skills that my child learned from Saïd and I highly recommend him.

Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

Bonjour! Learning French is easier than you think. We will use a wonderful course to guide our lessons together, designed to take you from zero knowledge of French to conversational fluency. I look forward to introducing you to French!

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.

French is my second language, but often feels as it if were the first, as I have speaking it for so many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I gave private lessons.

About Diane
Bonjour! Hello!

I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs.

My method is to provide grammar (very important in French), vocabulary, conversation, reading, and translation in every lesson, and show how important each component is to the whole. I am overjoyed when my students start conversing without need for translation - even if there are errors!

My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance. My mother tongue is English; but I learned French at the age of nine when I attended my first French school. I have a French high school
diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood, and I love learning, even if by now it is more difficult to become fluent in a new language. I think the fact of being a lifelong learner helps me better understand my students' needs.

As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader. I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.

Diane is a very conscientious and competent instructor who is very easy to work with. She is especially effective because she understands both the French language and culture while having a complete understanding of English and American culture.

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary. I emphasize speaking skills and give students the opportunity to practice this throughout my lessons. For students who need help with grammar (one of the trickiest things to learn in French!), I use my experience both as a student and teacher to simplify difficult concepts.
