I'am familiar with the French Curriculum used by the FCPS World Languages.
Tutoring Levels:

You only know the alphabet, and you can't write or speak a word yet. Not a problem, we can go through the basics to get you comfortable.After the first lesson, you'll already know how to have a simple conversation (introduce yourself, ask for directions or order a dish for instance.

Samir is dedicated, patient, reliable and fun! He provides helpful material between our online sessions, and I feel I'm learning at just the right pace. I highly recommend him.
Kahina
Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.
Lainie
For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

"Philippe is a fantastic instructor and a wonderful, genuine person. From our first class together he accurately assessed my level and understood what my goals were for French learning, and he adapted my classes accordingly. I looked forward to every class we had—not only because I could see huge improvements in my language capability, but also because I loved talking with him! He is kind, warm and patient and encouraged me not only in my French language ability but also in life. After our classes ended together, I felt more confident in French conversation than I ever had, and I achieved the highest reading score of my French-speaking career! I would highly recommend Philippe."

She is flexible, always adjusts to what I want while at the same time keeps me on my toes, challenging and encouraging.
