I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

French is my second language, but often feels as it if were the first, as I have speaking it for so many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I gave private lessons.

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

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!

I’m very pleased and excited. I like Zach’s approach. We jumped right into the first lesson.
Dallas
Zach is awesome! After studying French in high school and college, working with Zach made me realize how many things I either learned wrong, remembered incorrectly or just never knew. He has made me much more conscious about verbal language production, and I find myself much better equipped to say more things correctly or course correct as I'm speaking. The variety of activities is excellent. All are practical and contemporary. The ability to learn and take chances in a non-judgmental environment has been wonderful.
