Online French Teacher

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!

Online French Teacher

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!

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.

I picked Zach because he is from Paris and my husband and I just returned from a trip there. We want to go back next year with improved communication abilities. Zach will not only be able to teach us the language we want to know, but also give us tips about Paris and France in general from a native's point of view.
Zach started me out perfectly for my first French lesson. It was challenging enough but not overwhelming. I love that (for a part of it) he recorded me so I could hear what I sounded I sound like speaking French -very helpful!! He has given me just enough to work on between lessons and left me motivated for what's to come!

If you are serious about learning either French or Arabic, this is the best instructor. She is dedicated and her method is excellent. In our Arabic lessons, we target different sources of information and the lessons are comprehensive. I have been taking lessons for over 2 months and I get even more motivated with every lesson.

Online French Teacher

I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I got my Master degree from California State University Fullerton in 2010 and I am currently a last year doctorate student at the University of Miami. I have been a French tutor in both of my universities.

I have taught French to foreigner people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

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!

"Roman tutored me in French twice a week for several months. He was teaching me the fundamentals of the language in preparation for a planned three week trip to France. I had studied French many years ago in high school so I was essentially a beginner.
Roman came to my home for two hour lessons. He was never late. He was patient and kind but persistent in pushing me to do the best I could. He always had a lesson outline with lots of excellent study material to leave with me after each lesson.
At one point he had to go back to his home for family matters. During that time he stayed in contact and send lessons via the Internet. The lessons always included homework assignments which he would correct and send back to me, there was no charge to me for these efforts. He's a fair and honest man as well as an excellent teacher.
My trip to France was a richer and more rewarding experience as a result of his efforts. In addition to the language instruction he gave me a good deal of information about regions to visit, places to see, and restaurants use.
I have no reservation in recommending Roman as a teacher as well as a fine human being to be associated with."
