Hi ! my name is Zineb, and I am from Morocco, so I am a native French and Arabic speaker, I work as a French teacher in a private school here in Morocco.
I love traveling, I have explored Europe, UK, and USA, but there is so much still to see and I have a wish list to visit more countries further afield.
I love reading history books and I am interested in the Abrahamic religions.
I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and extreme sports like Surfing cause I live beside the ocean and I thank God for this.
Me as a Teacher
I studied teaching languages after I graduated from high school, and I started teaching 4 years ago in a private school. I also teach private lessons to more advanced students to improve their grammar and conversational skills.
My lessons & teaching style
I will use points of difficulty to introduce and teach the major points of the lesson.
we will practice the new vocal, grammar, etc in a controlled activity. I always try to allow the students to try to talk as much as possible and usually more than me, as I believe its important to learn how to express your ideas in a fluid and natural way.I am to slow down when I talk when necessary to allow the student to understand. I usually will take your favorite topics into consideration but I am open to talk about new things with you, to help you with unique vocabulary for that given topic.I have creative ideas and will find the way to teach you that it will suit your level and needs,

Another great lesson! Zineb has done a great job all these weeks teaching my 6 months old baby. She presents creative ways to teach a baby. I explained her the first day what I wanted and she accepted the challenge. We work with manipulative from our side and Zineb explains the activities in French. I like that my little one always is excited about the class and by request Zineb doesn't speak English to the baby which it is what I wanted for the baby listens French the most he can.
She has done a nice job reading books and teaching us nursery rhymes.

Thank you for a lesson. She always patiently correct my grammar and pronunciations. During free conversation, she find out which points I have to study and we focus on it on a material. For examples, a usage of pronouns in passé composé, pronunciation of /r/. A material can be a grammar drill, dialogue or reading. In a lesson, when I read material awkwardly, then she corrects me and asks how well I understood a material. She also asks me to repeat to read loudly because she wants to know if my intonation and pronunciation gets better. Sometimes she asks me to write sentences in "passé composé", "future tense" or something I should learn more. I have taken her lessons for couple of months and I was always relaxed. She often jokes and so do I. My french skill has got better. Recently she prepares to teach DELF, it will help students to prepare for the test.

As frustrating learning new language as the French language, Zineb makes it sounds and looks easy to absorb. She can put a big stop sign indicating that you're not ready for that yet. This is better than just learning everything you think you need to know. Her engaging level is amazing and after 10 lessons, I'm making a great progress comparing to where I started which was nearly zero :D

Zineb is a fascinating person who explains even the most complex concepts with patience and great clarity. She is acutely aware of the learning process for acquiring language and is ready to help.

Zineb is simply one of the best French teachers on italki I’ve ever had. She works diligently to make the lessons fun and interesting. She is so knowledgeable and has so much cultural insight. The conversation flows easily and the lesson time always seems to pass too quickly. Thank you Zineb 👌
