This teacher is impossible to get a hold of. Tried leaving several voicemails and text messages. He has a couple different phone #'s. Don't know which, if any, is the active # to use. No response from him ever. Couldn't reschedule because of this. Plus he lied and said I never contacted him. Now I am out a ton of money for lessons I wasn't able to use. Very greedy. I am not happy.

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"

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 ! :)

I have a passion for my language and I am always glad to share it with someone. French is a fascinating and beautiful language, but has the reputation to be difficult. I will prove you it is not.

About Alex
Bonjour !

My name is Alex, I come from Paris and I now work in New York.
I give French lessons during my spare time, to children, adults, or people preparing an exam.

I can adapt to any level, and you will have the opportunity to speak a lot during each lesson, and to acquire quickly a decent accent.

I have been giving Mathematics and physics private lessons for some years, with great satisfaction, and therefore I have a good experience.

Don't hesitate to contact me for any question !

Au revoir ;)

Alex

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!

Elsa is an amazingly thoughtful, personable, and patient instructor. During our weekly lessons, Elsa came up with interesting discussion topics to help with the advancement of my French conversational skills. Further, Elsa also thoroughly explained French grammatical structure when correcting/pointing out my errors.

I have truly made significant progress during my lessons with Elsa and highly recommend her.

I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!). I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France! I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

Students can expect to develop a strong base of grammar and diction. Having lived, studied, and worked in Paris for 3 years, I can offer insight into the culture of the French language.

About Zachary
I am an orchestral conducting Masters student at Mannes College of Music who has been playing piano since the age of 4. I have been teaching beginner and intermediate piano for the past 3 years to students ranging from ages 7 - 65. I teach all types of styles ranging from classical to pop with everything in-between.

My students can expect to develop a strong and reliable technique while being able to express their musical ideas with a clear and dynamic level of sophistication. It's the stories and emotions that draw people to music, so I do my best to base my teachings around that concept.
