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.

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

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

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

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"

THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH ME :)

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

Zach is excellent instructor.
I have taken several lessons and his lessons to be comprehensive and creative.
He is very professional and has always adapted to my needs and level with much encouragement.
He suggested many interesting French materials to listen or watch outside the lesson to create a natural French language environment. I would definitely recommend Zach!

I have vast experience in teaching French as a second language. I taught it for many years in my home country, Portugal, to middle and high schoolers and am currently tutoring the language. I love the sound of the French language and the way it can convey different emotions. French is the language of love, art and literature. Let me help you develop your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. We will make a great journey together.

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

Helena is awesome. I was initially hesitant to take lessons online since I thought it would be difficult to understand the subtle nuances of the language (Portuguese) or that we wouldn't get much done in the hour. Fortunately I was wrong. Not only was the hour spent together well organized, Helena also sent weekly study material and audios of the information we went over during our lesson which was extremely helpful. She is very knowledgeable and friendly, and I recommend her highly.

Allez-viens! I have been speaking and studying French for over 10 years. It was my first foreign language and I am passionate about facilitating that language learning process for others. I have a BA in French Comparative Literature and I have actually lived in France in a small and culturally rich town where learning the language was the only option. While there, I attended a French Université. My MA in education enables me to proactively tailor lessons to student needs, goals and strengths to ensure the most constructive and effective learning environment.

About Clarissa
I focus on the student. My approach and materials will vary depending on the progress, past experience and interests of the student. I want her or him to want to learn.My hobbies include backpacking, hiking, travel, reading, and language learning.

I am working on my Masters in Secondary English and currently hold an Associates in ECE, this combined with my extensive experience with the AP system and the time that I lived in and attended université in France make me qualified to tutor in these subjects and the satellite subject areas such as diction, study skills, reading and writing. I have experience learning four foreign languages in addition to English. It is my love of the learning process, patience and passion for these subjects, however, that are most efficacious in the tutoring process. Best of luck with your studies!

Our son had a great lesson with Clarissa and can’t wait for the next one!! Clarissa was very patient and gave Luke plenty of time to answer the questions. He stayed engaged the entire 45 minute lesson. We shortened the lesson to 30 minutes at Clarissa’s suggestion to ensure he gets the most from each lesson which I really appreciated! This has been a wonderful experience so far!

Stephanie is very professional. She teaches my daughter (9 YO) French and she is very imaginative, finding ways to keep the kid's attention. Her lessons are never annoying and she uses games, songs, craft activities. She thinks that the best way to learn is to keep it fun, and it works. My daughter improves a lot her French skills and she is always happy to go with Stephanie. Stephanie is very kind, attentive, patient. I warmly recommend her.
