Excellent teacher!

Christina is patient, encouraging, and a great tutor . I have improved a lot since starting my classes with her as far as understanding the German language (esp. with the hearing and speaking parts). She gave me helpful tools to speed up my learning and she helped me find the right study techniques for better comprehension of the language.
Lina H.
I loved working with Christina! I already had an ear for German growing up with a native speaker and she helped me understand a lot of the grammar I was missing in such a short period of time! As I practice on my own it becomes easier to follow patterns that she pointed out to me.

Private French Teacher

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I emphasis speaking over all. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

Mr Fadi is very welcoming and professional. Our first lesson was conducted at my pace and the course outline was discussed. He provides multiple resources to aid in learning and really cares about understanding the language versus regurgitating phrases. I look forward to working with him!

"I cannot recommend Zach highly enough. He's extremely positive, encouraging and fun in his lessons. I started learning French with almost zero knowledge of the language. After only a few weeks, I already felt comfortable expressing myself in basic French conversation. He challenged me to stretch my abilities as a student and helped me create my own system(s) for understanding the structure of speaking - this philosophy helped me build a foundation that is self-sufficient, a basic understanding of how the language works so that I can experiment, speak, learn, grow beyond what we learn in class. If you're looking for a teacher that is fun to learn with and someone who will challenge you to truly learn the nuances of the language, Zach is your teacher. I still have much to learn, but I have full confidence in Zach as an instructor."

French Grammar Basics: When to Use Tu and Vous

Mixing up your tu's and vous? Let French tutor Carol Beth L. break it down for you... As modern-day English speakers, most of us are accustomed to using only one word for “you.” It doesn't matter if we are talking to one person, many people, old people, young people, teachers, doctors, children, or anyone else. In some languages, this is not always the case – and French is one of them. French grammar provides French-speakers with two ways to say “you”: “tu” (pronounce it almost l …
