Due to my enthusiasm for Foreign languages, I am fluent in French and can read Russian, German, and Spanish. French was my minor and chemistry was my major. I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society based on my achievements in the fields of chemistry and French. I have also enhanced my fluency in French by traveling abroad, including residing in France at the University of Poitiers as well as traveling abroad to Paris, Brussels, and Calais. I look forward to spreading my enthusiasm for foreign languages to others.

I'am familiar with the French Curriculum used by the FCPS World Languages.
Tutoring Levels:

Level 1:

You only know the alphabet, and you can't write or speak a word yet. Not a problem, we can go through the basics to get you comfortable.After the first lesson, you'll already know how to have a simple conversation (introduce yourself, ask for directions or order a dish for instance.

Level 2:

You can speak the few sentences that you remember from school, but not enough to feel at ease across the pond. Key ...

Samir is dedicated, patient, reliable and fun! He provides helpful material between our online sessions, and I feel I'm learning at just the right pace. 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.

Online French Teacher

Not only do I speak fluent French, having grown up with French parents,
but my lessons are tailored to teach you about French culture and tradition.

My lessons do not follow a structured class setting, often leading to boredom and minimal learning retention. Instead, you will learn how to truly hold conversations in French, talking about your interests, passions, current events etc... I want YOU to be the master of your progression, and I will be there along to guide you! I will help you build proper sentences & aid you with your pronunciation, and sooner than later you will impress your friends, family & colleagues with your abundance of knowledge!

Roxanne is very good teacher and she is so patient, allowing me to make mistakes as she aims to achieve the goals I’ve told her I would like to achieve.
I was a student of Roxanne while in high school and she helped me write essays and prepare for several presentations. Her classes were always fun and light-hearted and I had some good time learning French. She helped me with my French final presentation about “France and its cultures" and I got an A grade.
I highly recommend Roxanne as a private French tutor, you won't find better than her.
With Roxanne, you will definitely improve your French!
Roxanne is an extremely dedicated and caring teacher, with great energy and a very diverse background. I love the way she personalizes her lessons using her deep knowledge of multiple cultures, and which is the reason why I fell in love with her teaching style. Finally Roxanne is a very kind, punctual and dedicated educator who cares for her students and I would recommend her to any student, whether a beginner or intermediate.

Online French Teacher

I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

"Continue to have great instruction from Jean-Luc. Merci!"
Took French lessons from Jean-Luc B.
"Elsa is a really fun, interesting and really patient teacher. An hour lesson just flys by and I’ve learned so much from her. She is really good at figuring out what level I am at in French and then pushing me a litttle to build on what I know and help me understand the proper way to word something and use past, present and future tense verbs.
Because she’s French, her accent is perfect, but she also speaks perfect English.
I’m so excited to return to France and to use all that I’ve learned from her!"

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."

"Meriem is an absolutely excellent teacher. I am truly impressed with her high level of organization, thorough approach, and dedication to teaching. Honestly, she could probably publish her own text book! She will encourage you to "go for it" and make mistakes, while always paying great attention to detail. I also appreciate that her lessons take a very practical approach, often focusing on what working adults would likely require in a French-speaking environment. She also happens to be a kind, cultured, and wonderful human being. Cannot recommend her highly enough!"
Took French lessons from Meriem B.
"I wanted to learn French for a business trip, but I was dreading it because I struggled with languages so much in high school. After working with Marianne, I was pleasantly surprised with how much easier it was than I expected. She really adapted to me and helped me figure out the best ways to learn. And she's very patient. Highly recommend!"

French Lessons in Baltimore, MD

By Allan I. - Baltimore French Teacher

Bonjour tout le monde! Are you looking to take French lessons in Baltimore, MD? That sounds amazing. I have lived in Baltimore for some time now, and I have found a lot of people looking to speak French, too!

Being a native French speaker in the U.S. is an amazing experience. I recommend to everybody to travel abroad to discover another culture and a different lifestyle. There are a lot of differences between France and the U.S, even if they are both Western societies. The differences are especially evident in daily life. Did you know that tipping is not “required” in France, or that you can’t turn right on a red light? Or that Frank Zappa, born in Baltimore, sang a song about France called “In France”?

Here are a few things that you need to know before traveling to France and that you can find in Baltimore to help you:

First of all, there are some great local organizations and groups that can really help you while taking French lessons in Baltimore.

1 : The Alliance Française de Baltimore (

The Alliance Française de Baltimore has a non-profit network that can help you all around the world, which is something really nice if you are travelling a lot. In Baltimore, this organization does an amazing job teaching and organizing some really cool activities, such as cheese and wine tastings or a Scrabble tournament in French. (This is actually one of the best board games to develop and increase your French vocabulary.) The center also features French movies or lectures.

2: ( is an excellent way to find new people looking to speak French. People host some different events, such as happy hours or book clubs. Like the Alliance Française, Meetup groups help to gather native French speakers, French-Americans and also Americans seeking to speak French. Members of Meetup groups are always welcoming and really nice.

3: Google Groups (!overview)

With Google Groups, you can find almost every kind of group, so why not French groups in Baltimore? They usually meet in someone’s house to share their habits, to talk about the news, and to have a good time.

I think that it is really useful to be part of those organizations if you are looking to improve your French, even while taking French lessons in Baltimore. There is no better way to learn than immersion, and if you are short on traveling to France, Belgium, Canada or Haiti, you can always go to one of these groups.

And how can you develop your French culture and knowledge without talking about French cuisine? There are some restaurants and bakeries in Baltimore that remind me of French cuisine when I miss it.

Start with Petit Louis Bistro and its confit de canard that tastes like my childhood. But, the most important part of the meal is the cheese cart after your meal. You can find some cheeses that you cannot find in a grocery store.

Crêpe Du Jour is also a really good restaurant. Crepes are a specialty of Brittany, but every French person makes crepes for la Chandeleur on February 2nd.

Voila!!! Here are some ways to participate in the French culture in Baltimore. You won’t regret learning or improving your skills in the language of love. It will be useful if you want to learn another Romance language or travel in the south of France!
