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 would highly recommend Zach! He is patient, supportive, and knowledgeable. He truly wants you to learn, while always keeping class fun. Zach will repeat pronunciations as needed until you have complete understanding. Not only does he teach the French language, but also French culture. Zach is encouraging yet provides a challenge for you to reach your goals for learning. He's always organized, on time, and shows interest in your progress. I have been learning with Zach for months and will continue taking his classes.

About Erika I.

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!

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 am a native French speaker, born and raised in Paris.

I have always been the best student in French throughout my education in Paris, I got one of the highest grade for the written French exam during the baccalauréat in the Paris region. I love this language, combined with my love for reading, led me to write fiction and poetry that is starting to get some recognition both in France and the US.

I also hold a Master's Degree in International Business from a Grande Ecole de Commerce (elite business school) which led me to travel and study in Asia (South Korea and Japan) for an extended period of time where I was tutoring Korean students and expats both on grammar and conversational skills. I have continued tutoring in Paris and have now been a tutor for 6 years on and off.

I am a polyglot and speak 5 languages and know how to teach my students to get the perfect pronunciation. I can teach you everything from grammar, conversational french, to corporate business french, ...

Ms. Emily Hoppin has been a very reliable proofreader for me for years, who not only corrects grammatical mistakes and transforms my sentences into good American English, but also thinks things through with me and points out flaws in my logic or incomprehensible explanations within my texts. She has always kept deadlines.

Emily is a fantastic teacher!
She is very experienced, and definitely knows what students need in order to get where they want to go with English. Emily is very patient with her students and above all she is a very dedicated teacher. Emily helped me prepare for my TOEFL exam and I wouldn't have got a high grade without her help. Having lessons with Emily has been the highlight of my learning English journey and I highly recommend her as an amazing English teacher! I can guarantee that she would smoothly take your English to the next level!

I’ve had a privilege of knowing Emily Hoppin since 2014 when I started meeting with her for the purpose of ameliorating my English.
She greatly helped me to improve my written and spoken English skills.
In addition to that, she is an engaging tutor who makes learning fun.
I believe that she has an incredible talent for teaching the English language.
