About Zach
"I don't have much time but I'd like to learn french , is it possible ?"
- Oui !

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 took French before and did not see myself improving at all. Took it with Zach this time and I actually see myself learning. He makes you record yourself so you can hear what you sound like and that really improves pronunciation (especially for me being Arab since French pronunciation is nothing like Arabic) because you get to see how people hear you talk and that leaves a lot of room for improvement, plus hearing yourself talk over and over helps your mind to remember what you learned (you won’t learn it and then forget it by the next lesson).

My 10yo says: He is a very helpful and funny guy, which is great when you're learning French. He made it easy but challenging too. Right in the middle of fun and making me learn.

From me (adult): I was relearning French to prepare for a vacation to Paris. Zach did a fantastic job of being flexible, challenging me, teaching us (ny daughter and me) key phrases that would be helpful ahead of our trip, etc. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to take lessons!

I've been teaching French for 4 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 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.

About Nicola
I am bilingual in French and English. I received my bachelor's degree in French from Columbia University, where I graduated summa cum laude, and my master's degree from the Université Paris III Sorbonne-Nouvelle. Since graduation I have taught French (and arts classes/workshops in French) at various bilingual schools and organizations around New York City and Boston. I also work as a professional translator between French and English, and a filmmaker specializing in bilingual media.

I love teaching students of all levels, whether at my home in Brooklyn, a nearby café or a location of your choice. À très bientôt j'espère!

I'm a polyglot. I've been learning and using French for the last 22 years, and as someone who knows a multitude of languages, I know the methods that make a student able to learn efficiently. I also provide trial lessons for anyone to see if they can keep up.

About Khalid
Hi there
My name is Khalid, and I'm here to teach Arabic, French, English and guitar lessons to whom it might be of keen interest. I'm a polyglot (Arabic, Spanish, French, English). I'm also learning (Mandarin Chinese), and that helps me understand the needs of a learner even more. I have used my languages proficiently working with interpretation and translation across different organisations and platforms. I'm very patient with my students, subtle and understanding. It takes teamwork to fulfill potential, and I'm here to help anyone achieve that.

Regards,

Khalid

New York, NY

I grew up in Louisiana, where I learned to speak French fluently. In high school, I received a perfect 5 on the AP French exam as well as received my B2, an assessment which makes me eligible to study in a French university. After high school, I spent a summer studying French language and culture at the University of Liege in Liege, Belgium.

About Sabrina
I am currently completing my undergraduate degree in bassoon performance at New York University, with a minor in business studies. I am a member of the NYU orchestra, my chamber group Air Nouvea, and the New York Youth Symphony. Additionally I have played in small musical and opera productions in New York City; worked as a counselor at Luzerne Music Center in Lake Luzerne, New York; and interned at the Summertrios Music Festival in Lancaster, PA.

My beginning to advanced level students would learn how to advance their technique using practice techniques to increase productivity and efficiency through the study of scales, arpeggios, etudes, and solo repertoire. I would also emphasize posture and breathing as well as teach reed making and adjusting.

In addition to bassoon, I teach math, science, history, French, English/writing, and
ACT/SAT prep. In high school, I was a member of the French Honor Society, competed in Washington D.C for We the People, and was a national merit semifinalist.

I am an experienced tutor focused on beginner and intermediate level French. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

I majored in French Translation while in college and spent 6 months living in Paris, France, being fully submerged in the language and culture.

About Carla
Hi!

My name is Carla, I am currently in a Masters program for Mental Health Counseling and thought it would be a great idea to tutor on the side as I love teaching people my favorite subjects -- Spanish and French!

I was born in Argentina, therefore I am a native Spanish speaker (and continued to speak it throughout my upbringing). I also was homeschooled from 1st - 12th grade through an online Spanish system (which helped with learning all about Spanish grammar and the history of my country) while also attending public school here in the USA.

As per my French interest, I studied French Translation (as well as Psychology) in college and also lived in Paris for 6 months to fully immerse myself in the language and culture. I feel very connected to this language (I started learning it when I was 12), and wish to live in France after my g
raduate studies.
