About Zach
Bonjour everyone , my name is Zach.

I was born and raised in Paris, France.

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

I moved to the US six years ago and I have been teaching FRENCH for more than 10 years now.

Most people I've taught first came 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"


French is easy , you just need a good teacher who cares about YOU and adapts the lessons to YO
I do ! :)

I would highly recommend Zach! He is patient, supportive, and knowledgeable. He truly wants you to learn, while always keeping class fun. Zach will repeat pronunciations as needed until you have complete understanding. Not only does he teach the French language, but also French culture. Zach is encouraging yet provides a challenge for you to reach your goals for learning. He's always organized, on time, and shows interest in your progress. I have been learning with Zach for months and will continue taking his classes.

About Daria K.

Galveston, TX

During every lesson, at the BEGINNER lever, we will learn how to pronounce French letters, read in French, we'll learn grammar (pronouns, plurals, tenses etc.). We'll learn new vocabulary (I'm going to help you with translation and provide you bilingual internet resources for translation) and as soon as possible we'll use our knowledge to make dialogues, messages, texts and communicate in French.
Almost the same system for INTERMEDIATE level. During every lesson, we take time to learn and practice grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening/watching videos. But the grammar, of course, will be of higher level (in comparison to a beginner) and we will have more time for producing and communicating in French.
During ADVANCED level lessons, we will speak only in French, we'll have some time for grammar just to learn some small particularities and most of our attention will be given to speaking, listening, special vocabulary...Well, everything to make you comfortable in French.
For ...

About Daria
What makes me a better option in comparison to native speakers? I'm specializing in teaching French as a foreign language. I also learned French (English) as a foreign language, so I know and understand all the difficulties you may meet during your studying process. Due to my understanding of all that, I can adopt better the methods of our work and my explanation.
What I love the most about my work? It's seeing my students' success and progress. For that aim, I'm always attentive to my students' needs and abilities to learn a subject. I try to find the best way to their understanding accordi
ng to individual characteristics.

Since my childhood, I knew that languages are my passion. That's why I graduated from the pedagogical university back in Ukraine (my native country) at the faculty of foreign languages and also studied at the university in Switzerland. I went abroad to improve my French and English as well as to learn psychology and sociology. I had an opportunity to live in a French-speaking country, to have everyday language practice, and to learn how to live on your own.
