"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 ! :)
Speaks english, french
Teaches students 1 and up
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.Show More
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!
My first French lesson ever with Zach was great. He’s a really nice guy and was super patient with me. Definitely looking forward to continued sessions with him.
I took French before and did not see myself improving at all. Took it with Zach this time and I actually see myself learning. He makes you record yourself so you can hear what you sound like and that really improves pronunciation (especially for me being Arab since French pronunciation is nothing like Arabic) because you get to see how people hear you talk and that leaves a lot of room for improvement, plus hearing yourself talk over and over helps your mind to remember what you learned (you won’t learn it and then forget it by the next lesson).Show More
My 10yo says: He is a very helpful and funny guy, which is great when you're learning French. He made it easy but challenging too. Right in the middle of fun and making me learn.
From me (adult): I was relearning French to prepare for a vacation to Paris. Zach did a fantastic job of being flexible, challenging me, teaching us (ny daughter and me) key phrases that would be helpful ahead of our trip, etc. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to take lessons!
Great start on day 1 with Zach!
Great class! I was a bit nervous and am usually quite self conscious but Zach put me at ease so the lesson was quite relaxed and successful. I learned a lot and look forward to study and my next class!
Zach's teaching method is good and very experienced.
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.Show More
I cannot recommend Zach highly enough. He's extremely positive, encouraging and fun in his lessons. I started learning French with almost zero knowledge of the language. After only a few weeks, I already felt comfortable expressing myself in basic French conversation. He challenged me to stretch my abilities as a student and helped me create my own system(s) for understanding the structure of speaking - this philosophy helped me build a foundation that is self-sufficient, a basic understanding of how the language works so that I can experiment, speak, learn, grow beyond what we learn in class. If you're looking for a teacher that is fun to learn with and someone who will challenge you to truly learn the nuances of the language, Zach is your teacher. I still have much to learn, but I have full confidence in Zach as an instructor.Show More
Zach makes the course challenging and fun. He keeps you busy the entire class time - making the time go by very quickly.
Very helpful and very nice.
Zach knows his stuff! Very personable, patient and thorough. A great instructor!
Zach is wonderful. He is very adaptable to my needs and goals. Very personable.
Zach is excellent instructor.
I have taken several lessons and his lessons to be comprehensive and creative.
He is very professional and has always adapted to my needs and level with much encouragement.
He suggested many interesting French materials to listen or watch outside the lesson to create a natural French language environment. I would definitely recommend Zach!
Zach is a fantastic teacher! He is very organized and patient, but he's also willing to push and encourage. I'm excited for the next one! Merci Zach
Excellent teacher! Zach is wonderful. He is very knowledgable, patient and intelligent. I just moved from China to America, so my English is not so good. However, Zach is so kind and patient to encourage me to study French. I really enjoyed my first French lesson with Zach! And I am looking forward to continuing my lessons.Show More
