**due to a lot of requests for french lessons , please if you email me with questions be as clear as possible. Only serious inquiries please
I answer everyone within 24hours

-"HELP , I'm going to France soon , I need some basic things to say"

-"I would like to be able to read books in french and have a conversation."

-"Can I be fluent in less than a year?"

Don't worry, you found the right person

Most people I've taught come to me saying "French people are rude , when we try to speak french they answer in english" or "French is so hard , I can't learn it"

Well let me tell you : THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH ME

About Zach
Bonjour everyone , my name is Zach, I was born and raised in France in a small (tiny tiny) village called Galluis.

I have since then lived in Paris , Philadelphia and now New York.

He graduated from "Jean-Monnet European High-school" where I specialized in English and French Literature.

I have been teaching FRENCH and DRUMS for more than 12 years now.

About FRENCH LESSONS : ( section about DRUM LESSONS below )

Most people I've taught come to me saying "French is so hard , I will never be able to speak it" or "When I try to speak french, french people answer me in english"

--- THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH ME :)

French is easy , you just need a good teacher who cares about you.
I do.

I can help you with :

• Pronunciation ( so that nobody will answer you in English )
• What to know if you go to France soon ( so
that you can know a little bit before you go )
• Basic to advanced conversation ( so you can make french friends and understand what they say )
• Train your ear
• Grammar / Vocabulary / Verbs

BUT DON'T WORRY , IT WILL BE FUN !

After the first lesson , ALL my students realize that learning french isn't scary anymore.

So : qui veut apprendre le français ?*

(*who wants to learn french?)

Section about DRUM LESSONS:

On the music side of my studies: I attended the American School of Modern Music of Paris for 3 years and moved to Philadelphia to study with Joe Morello's former student Sam Ruttenberg at the University of the Arts in 2012.

I perform as a professional jazz drummer between Europe and America.

~~Teaching Philosophy~~

IF YOU CAN SAY IT , YOU CAN PLAY IT !

•I teach beginners to advanced students , all ages and styles are welcome

I can teach you ( how to ) :

• read
• improvise
• play with other musicians
• the history of the drums
• your role as a drummer
• make music with an instrument that at first doesn't seem very musical
• swing
• latin / afro cuban grooves
• rock
• correct your grip on the sticks
and everything else you may ask... the possibilities and endless

Excellent teacher! Zach is wonderful. He is very knowledgable, patient and intelligent. I just moved from China to America, so my English is not so good. However, Zach is so kind and patient to encourage me to study French. I really enjoyed my first French lesson with Zach! And I am looking forward to continuing my lessons.

It’s been a very long time since I have attempted to speak any French, but she made the overall lesson fun and interactive and we worked on correcting and improving my French. I’m excited for our next lesson.

Ana is a great teacher with a lot of experience— and it shows. Everything was organized and the materials were easily viewable in the online classroom. Ana seamlessly manipulated the technology so we could move between face time and looking at the whiteboard or a handout. We jumped right in with basic greetings, sounds, alphabet, etc and i’m already feeling confident. I find Ana can very helpfully break down Spanish words to help me get the prononciation right and i noticed she takes clues from me in figuring out the right pace for the class. I love that she pays attention to details and helps me work through what I don’t understand. I finished just the first class feeling I learned a lot. Couldn’t be happier! And by the way, Ana speaks French, too.

Marie did a wonderful job working with our clients' children for an Arabic Language and Culture Camp at the Iraqi Mutual Aid Society. She was professional, organized, compassionate, and creative. She was very cooperative with me and children loved her. I would recommend her for any position she applies for.

All lessons are tailored to meet your specific language learning needs. You will receive assignment after each lesson to make sure you understand the covered material before we move on to the next. You will use a workbook and various multi-media support.
