I can also focus on a particular or specific skill depending of the student inquiries. I Also offer total immersion, making sure that the student uses as little English as possible, and relates to the language as he would if he were in a French speaking country with individuals who do not speak English.

As an advanced French learner, I have a solid base of grammar and a good vocabulary (regularly read French novels, listen to French podcasts and watch French shows -- with French subtitles). But I lack confidence in conversation and Zineb has been excellent in building my confidence. She's patient and encouraging, but more than that she conveys genuine curiosity in what I'm saying. That apparently sincere interest makes all the difference for me and my conversational confidence is stronger thanks to my lessons with her.
Zineb has taught me so much in the few lessons we had! I had taken French for 5 years in high school but couldn't remember anything.. She gave me some great tips and techniques to learn French. I would highly recommend. Thanks Zineb!
Zineb is an amazing tutor. My French has improved so much thanks to her. She is well-organized, always prepared for lessons with a ton of engaging activities and is a gifted teacher. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
She is patient and very accomodating with the schedule. I was able to learn the basics of the language in a short time and aptly, especially with the writing/reading exercises
Zineb is a true professional and caring teacher. I needed to learn as much French as I could in two months as I was spending Christmas in Northern Quebec with my boyfriend's family. In this short amount of time Zineb brought me upto conversational level French with good reading and writing ability. She is very catered to each students specific needs, very involved in their unique progress and genuinely a very friendly, likable and encouraging individual. I would highley recommend Zineb to anyone attempting to learn a new language.
Zineb is a great tutor, she makes you feel comfortable speaking a new language which can definitely be nerve-wracking in my experience. She puts you at ease and makes you feel motivated to continue to improve in French. She is passionate about the language and this is clearly shown at every session. 10/10.
Zineb was an excellent tutor. She put a lot of thought, effort, and focus into our lessons. She made me feel comfortable with where I was at (very beginner), and facilitated a great learning environment. I would highly recommend her - knowledgeable, friendly, and professional!
Zineb is very dedicated and knows a lot about French. She’s an amazing tutor and is great at communicating with her students.
I needed some help with refreshing my French, prior to a 3 week trip through France. Zineb's help really made a difference. She focused on those areas that I needed to pay attention to, including vocabulary, scenarios and pronunciation. I would definitely look to Zineb for help if I am lucky enough to go back to France in the future!
I had a great experience with Zineb. I was looking for a tutor to help me with my spoken French and was lucky to find Zineb. She was patient with me as I tried to get my ideas out and kind in correcting my mistakes. On top of this, she is great to talk to. The conversations were always interesting and never felt forced. I look forward to finding time to study with her again.
Zineb is an excellent tutor, I really liked her way of tutoring,
My husband and I have had numerous French tutors over the past five or ten years, and Zineb is one of our very favourites. Her command of the language is obviously excellent and her instruction about grammar, syntax, vocabulary, etc., is always very clear. But what makes Zineb stand out for me is her genuine interest in her students, the way that interest makes her listen carefully, makes me feel that the Content I'm trying to convey is worthwhile enough for her to wait patiently and encouragingly for me to get my French words out there. Because of that patience and genuine interest, my confidence levels in my ability to speak French have risen dramatically, so that this last trip to Paris I held my own in every encounter with a French speaker, never deterred if they switched to English, but remaining in French knowing that they would be able to understand me -- because Zineb convinced me she always could.
Had Zined as my kids tutor for a couple of years. Excellent teacher, and a very nice personality. Definitely recommend her as a tutor/teacher.
Zineb is a great tutor and a great person. She is very patient and also challenges me to learn more. If you want to have fun and learn a lot then you will have a great experience with Zineb. She is a wealth of resources and has equipped me with a wide variety of media sources which has enabled me to expand my comprehension skills. She is very flexible and adapts lessons to what I am feeling or need on the day. It is very easy to talk to Zineb, which makes it easy to learn and improve on my French. Highly recommended.
