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 ! :)

Bonjour a tous!

Dear French Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows everyone to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons always begin with a dialogue, no matter your level. From how you are feeling, to what you did during the week, to the weather of your best friend's gossip, we warm up with a conversation I type out as we go.

The rest of the lesson is then spent reviewing previous work and introducing new material in a variety of ways, constantly setting a rule in practice. Poems, songs or texts, depending on your interest, keep the content alive and interesting.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

Every student has his/her personal needs. I first make sure I understand what the student/learner is looking for and I adapt to him, her with personal attention and content. I have been a coach on Rosetta Stone (conversational French) and a French tutor ( middle and high school) for more than 7 years, making sure my students progress. A language is something "alive". I mean by this that I focus on practical and useful expressions when my student wants conversational lessons. If my student struggles at school with grammar, I reassure him or her and make him or her confident and together we progress to B and A grades.

About Martine
Bonjour. My name is Martine. I am a French native speaker who is tutoring in South Florida for more than five years.
- I help high school students to improve their marks with success.
- I have also specialized in conversational French and help my students to become fluent in speaking, writing, reading .
- I also love teaching French to young children.
- I am also working on my personal website which will very soon offer nice and useful dialogues that you meet in a daily life. My students love my lessons!
- I am an author of children books aswell, both in French and English.
- Should you need a document to be proofread or a translation from English to French I can assist you with this.
Do not hesitate to ask me for further information about French lessons. It will be my pleasure to answer you in a very short time.
Best regards. M

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!

Hi!

I was born and raised in Paris and lived there until I was 18, which is when I moved to NYC for college. I am a true Parisian who loves and breathes France, and I look forward to sharing that with you. I make sure to customize my lessons to each student and their needs and interests. I want to know what you are seeking to learn and what your objectives are which sill structure our lessons together. I want each of my student to feel like they leave each class feeling excited about what they learned, and am always open to feedback and suggestions.

About Gabriela
Hi!

To tell you a bit more about myself, my mother is Dominican/American and my father is Lebanese, but I was born and raised in Paris, France, which explains that I speak French, English, Italian and Spanish fluently. From a young age, I have had a deep appreciation and passion for languages, as well as other cultures. I moved to NYC to attend Columbia University, where I studied International Relations. I started tutoring on the side while in college and absoluty love working with children. Since graduating, I work in tv/film production where the hours are always changing, which would allow me to continue tutoring.
