My teacher and I spoke by phone for my first lesson, but her phone had poor reception so I was not able to get the benefit of a full lesson. The second and third lessons were unsuccessful as well I need an alternative so that I can work with another teacher locally. I am not familiar enough with this on line process to be successful with my lessons. I have paid for lessons that i have not received. Please advise.

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

**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.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

I've been teaching French for six years and my students have gone on to improve their grade substantially. Within the first few lessons, you'll get a better understanding of the material learned in class or if you are a new beginner, you will be able to read and speak basic French. I use different grammar and reading books depending on your level and make you practice with speaking and written exercises to vary the learning process. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I would be thrilled to meet you!

I am an experienced and a passionate French Teacher.  I have been Teaching professionally for 12 years. I grew up and was living in Paris, City of light! French is my language which I love and cherish the most in the world! To devote my life and my work for Teaching French, after a Bachelor’s in “French Translation and Interpretation” I did my Master Degree in “French Modern Literature” in the prestigious Sorbonne University.
Then, I specialized in the field of Teaching French as a second language (FLE). I have dedicated my life to sharing my love of the French language and culture with others and to helping them Master this beautiful, though challenging language.
I already helped hundreds of students in Paris and here in Orange County to Master the French Language and to achieve their goals.

About Meroe
Bonjour!
My name is Meroe. I grew up and was living and studding in Paris, I am an experienced and a passionate French Teacher.
To devote my life and my work for Teaching French, after a Bachelor’s in “French Translation and Interpretation” I did my Master Degree in “French Modern Literature” in the prestigious Sorbonne University. Then, I specialized in the field of Teaching French as a second language (FLE).

I Teach French in one-on-one or group settings to all ages and levels. I have loved Teaching French since 1998 to people of all ages and levels and I have worked with hundreds of students in their pursuit of Learning French Language and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French Language.

I approach clients with empathy, encouragement and joy and will coach you to hit your goals. Within the first few les
sons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I provide an in-depth learning experience filled with productive exercises, meaningful advice and plenty of direct support and encouragement. I know that French can be challenging at times. I have a lot of patience and always keep an encouraging attitude. I am confident in my ability to improve anybody's language skills.

I love working with students on their writing and preparing for standardized tests. I take time to evaluate my students individual learning styles and goals. I always make sure that my students feel completely comfortable with learning a new language. There is nothing more rewarding to me than when a student's hard work is rewarded with a huge improvement or when they get the A on that essay we spent days perfecting.

If you are in one of these situations, then I can help you:

-Are you struggling with your French at school or home schooling, do you need grammar support or help to memorize the vocabulary and improve your pronunciation?

-Are you planning to go on vacations to a French speaking country and want to be able to read a menu card, order a meal, ask for directions, do some shopping etc..

-Do you just want to have French conversation because you love the French language?

-Do you want to prepare for your French exam?

-Do you work for a French speaking company and want to be able to have a French conversation on the phone, write or understand short French emails?

Whatever you are starting French or you want to improve your languages skills, I can help you to enrich your French skills with a fun and a very diversified program in a natural way!

For Private Tutoring, we start by having an initial meeting for 30 minutes to discuss your goals and define your French level.
This session is FREE of charge. A lesson may be cancelled and rescheduled with 24-hour notice. I strongly believe that learning a new language is not only a skill but also an art which opens new doors to a new world to everybody.

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Add a little culture to your life today and learn French with Meroe!!

A bientot!

I myself am an educator and teach in several Community colleges and universities within Orange County for past 18 years.

I have the privilege of meeting and associating with Meroe since her arrival to United States few years ago, and also through some mutual friends whom they know her as family friend for past 25 years. I have found Meroe a very friendly, kind, helpful and dedicated to what ever she commits herself doing. Loves to work with people and make a difference in her path to her own self improvement.

I believe, knowing Meroe’s personalty and past work experience, as well as her uniques education background , she can be an asset to any educational facility's goals to serve and improve student success.
