Born and raised in Paris , France to a french mother and an american father. Teaching french is a true passion and joy. My classes are fun and if you want to work with a real teacher who can design a class just for you, I am the teacher you are looking for! Whatever your goals are with French, I can help you get there! Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals. Wether you , your spouse or kids would like to learn french, I adapt my classes to everyone's needs and goals. -"HELP , I'm going to France soon , I need some basic things to say" No problem ! -"I would like to be able to read books in french and have a conversation." Sure thing ! -"Can I be fluent in less than a year?" Yes you can if you're ready to work hard and have fun ! Whatever your reason is : you found the right person ! :) I can help you with : • Pronunciation ( so that nobody will answer you in English ) • What to know if you go to France soon ( so that you can know a little bit before you go ) • Basic to advanced conversation ( so you can make french friends and understand what they say ) • Train your ear ( so you don’t answer like a robot and recognize what people are talking about without thinking too much ) • Grammar / Vocabulary / Verbs AND I can also train you to get the DELF*** Certifications ( my student Sam who took the first test last month got approved with an amazing score of 89.50/100 ! ) ***The DELF is a diploma awarded by the French Ministry of Education to prove the French-language skills of non-French candidates. There are six independent diplomas, which correspond, respectively, to the six levels of the Council of Europe' s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). I’ll also teach you about french culture in general ( why french people behave a certain way , how we were raised , our values , why our humor is different , where to go in France, where to eat in Paris , understand the country ( France ) and the city of Paris , basically anything you want to know depending on what you want ! ) BUT DON'T WORRY , IT WILL BE FUN ! After the first lesson , ALL my students realize that learning french isn't scary anymore. So : qui veut apprendre le français ?* (*who wants to learn french?) I can train any level , any age , I just need you to want to speak french and to be ready to have fun doing it ! FAQ: - Do you have a specific method ? **I work with books that are certified by the french alliance. - How may hours do I need per week ? ** Depending on how fast you want to learn I recommend to start with twice 1 hour per week for a month to see if you like it and if you are motivated I think 4 hours per week ( 2 hours twice a week ) are ideal. - Will I have homework ? ** Yes or No , your homework will depend on your motivation and your free time between the lessons. I never give too much and it's always related to what we are working on. For example , the first lesson is the french alphabet , your homework will be to learn how to spell your name in french. - What do you give your students to help them become fluent in 1 year? ** If you want to commit to 1 year of intensive french , I will give you movies to watch in french, radio shows to listen to , songs to learn , poems to learn , books to read ( adapting to your level ) , I'll introduce you to real french people and I will only speak to you in french during the lesson ( of course if you don't understand I will translate , but the goal is to be lost without help, that's how I learned "real" english in 1 year in Philadelphia.) More questions ? Feel free to ask me using the ASK A QUESTION option ! Ready to book lessons with me ? Select the duration of the lessons you'd like to book and you'll be on your way to becoming fluent in french ! I look forward to meeting you ! A bientôt ! ( see you soon )
About Zach M.

"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 ! :)

Zach is wonderful. He establishes a great repore among student and teacher. He strikes an excellent balance between instructing and letting you learn on your own. He celebrates your small accomplishments and ensures you understand the concepts, pronunciation, material and more before moving on to new material. He is great!!! Merci Beucoup Zach

Zach is enthusiastic and makes the lessons interesting and fun. He has a unique way of teaching which is refreshing after trying to learn classroom French for years.

Zach is AWESOME! I love his sense of humor, laissez-faire attitude (tres Francis!) his punctuality, and his deftness. He is special and a joy to interface with. Looking forward to more sessions together and becoming fluent! WOW ;-)
