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 ! :)

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!

Before I started taking lessons with Richard I only knew two words: Bonjour and merci :). For the past 3 monts , Richard has been a big help, I know more vocabulary now and my grammar has improved. He is always patient( eventhough I might ask the same thing over and over) . He takes time to explain words and sentences in a simple way which makes it easy for me to understand.
Looking forward to my trip to Paris :D

I've been teaching French for 3 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France!

I am a French native from a small island called La Réunion, who has travelled the world and taught students from varying countries and from all levels. I came from hating languages to being a language-lover and world-traveler. I have a dual-degree in English & Korean for Foreign Affairs specializing in Teaching French as a Second Language. I've had the chance to tutor amazing students in New Zealand, France, Ireland and South Korea. I love sharing my passion and knowledge to others and I like to adapt and personalize my lessons based on my student's goals, finding unique, fun, uncommon and easy ways for them to learn! I like to teach what I call practical languages: skills, vocabulary and grammar you will need in any given real-life situation in French. Like reading? We can work on literature materials. Like music? We can work on songs lyrics. I am looking forward to meeting you!

About Delphine
I am a linguist, an art director, a marketing & communication strategist and a creative thinker, but most of all a hard-working, multi-talented and passionate dreamer.

I have taught French as a Second Language in France, Ireland, New Zealand and South Korea. My experience in teaching French abroad to students of all levels (beginners, intermediate and advanced) has led me to being in charge for the past 2 years of training all new interns in a leading creative agency here in New York.

I have a Dual Bachelor's Degree in English & Korean for Foreign Affairs with an additional specialization in Teaching French as a Second Language from the University of La Rochelle (France), a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising & Graphic Design from the NYIT (US), and a Masters Degree in Communication Arts specializing in Digital Marketing from EFAP (S
chool of New Communication Arts, France). I also have a Certificate in Fashion Business from the Lyon Fashion University (France). Additionally, I won an Professional Advertising Excellence Award during my senior year at NYIT and I had the honor of being selected to join the National Society of Leadership and Success.

I am currently the Senior Art Director of an acclaimed luxury creative agency. I have had the chance to work with amazing clients such as L'Oréal USA, Neiman Marcus, Akola Jewelry and LVLXIII x Jason Derulo to name a few.

I truly believe the best way to learn is to find 1. Meaning and 2. Passion.
1. Why am I learning this? How am I going to use this knowledge? I find it important to work with my students based on their goals, whether it be passing an exam, learning the basics, perfecting existing skills or reaching the proficiency level needed to just get around in another country or a succeed in their career.
2. What helped me and my students was finding something fun or something we could relate to and feel passionate about. When I teach I like to find often unlikely/uncommon comparisons, tools and materials to help my students understand and memorize what they need to know in the most effective manner.
