Are you frustrated with French or Spanish as a student? Do you feel everyone in your class gets it but you? Are you worried about your end-of-semester Spanish or French exams?

Have you tried to take some classes but still find yourself unable to have even a simple conversation in French or Spanish?

Or do you simply want to learn French for the first time for a vacation trip you want to fully enjoy or for work?

What you need is a tutor who is able to take you at your level and work with you so you achieve your goal in French or Spanish, whether that's acing your tests or have a conversation with Spanish or French natives.

I am a native Frenchman with Spanish blood and half of my family speaks Spanish. I have been a tutor, a translator for many years and I am a book author.

In addition to my undergraduate studies for a Bachelor of Arts Degree in languages in Paris, France, I have visited and lived on four different continents and on any given week I speak, read and write French, English and Spanish. I also lived in Germany for some time. When necessary for traveling I’ve also learned some Italian, Portuguese and Arabic.

I have tutored English students in France and French or Spanish students in the US. I have also worked for many companies and translation agencies on often highly targeted translations between the English, Spanish and French languages.

Over the years I have found that Western European languages often have similar patterns, logic and roots. You can use those similarities to learn faster and more efficiently.

Do you know that almost 30% of English words come from French and that about 1,000 words are shared by English and Spanish—we call them cognates?

My language students have covered a wide range of goals and levels. I use various recognized industry-standard techniques and I know we can get you where you want to be on time.

Helen, 5 lessons with Max

Nice teaching style

I have only had one lesson with Max but I liked his style of teaching. He also listened to me when we discussed different methods. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with him.

KATHY, 3 lessons with Max

Great first session!

He was patient and extremely helpful with my pronunciation. I struggle a lot with that and also get very self conscious about speaking the language. He made me very comfortable.

Danielle, 12 lessons with Max

Useful first lesson

As Max encourages my listening skills, I believe I will be able to handle travel conversation during a trip to Ecuador this Christmas. Max pushed me pretty hard, but that is what it takes to improve.

Max- My French Teacher

I've been working with Max for a few months now and find him to be an excellent tutor! He listens, is patient, knowledgeable and pleasant. He has a plan to help me to learn and be more proficient in French, but is always open to my questions. He designs his lessons based on a student's mode of learning, and provides many resources to help me practice. He is also extremely versed in grammar, and explains the structure of the language in a way that helps me learn better. I would highly recommend Max as a tutor! He will design lessons to best benefit your needs!

Amy, 27 lessons with Max

Great tutor

Max is an awesome French tutor. He knows how to teach towards understanding. He is patient, knowledge and connects dots between other languages (if you know them), which helps for understanding French grammar rules.

Wallace, 10 lessons with Max

Knowledgeable and Flexible Tutor

Presently, I've only had two French lessons, but it's evident Max is willing to assist me in attaining my language goals, by creating lesson plans compatible with my needs and current level. I look forward to continuing this educational relationship.
