Deenya ..
Not a good experience. First day we were set up for lessons she canceled and asked for a different time/day. When that lesson came time she was late and couldn't accommodate the lesson but never contacted to reschedule. A week later for the 2nd lesson, I purchased she sends a text a few hours before the appointment claiming that she talked to another teacher about my grandson and felt she couldn't help him. Way too inconsistent to be offering any lessons. What an awful experience. Time to move on (eye-roll).

Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!

I first started learning French when I was in high school and was amazed at how many similarities it shared with Spanish (which both descend from Latin) which helped me to pick up things a lot faster. I have since lived in the "French House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters where residents are required to speak their target language while in their respective apartments. I also took a third-year advanced grammar French class while at college while living in the French House. French is just an awesome language to learn!

Private French Teacher

I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

About Robert

My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from Curacao, a beautiful island that once was part of The Netherlands and I started teaching in 1973. So far I have been teaching Spanish for 12 years. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute

"I first met Philppe while I was a French student taking one on one classes at DLS during a 6 month period. He was not my instructor but we crossed paths daily, as his office was next door to the classroom I used. He was always testing my skills and offering assistance where he saw necessary. At the end of my 6 month course, I continued on with more job training that allowed me an additional 40 hours of French so that it was fresh on the mind prior to arriving at my next post. Philippe was my instructor during that period, which is something I will always be grateful for. Due to my foundation in French, we did not need to cover many basics but instead created a lesson plan that involved widening my knowledge of the local culture and politics in the country of my future assignment. He taught me how to express my opinions while casually conversing in French (which has proven to be invaluable in my line of work). He challenged me to expand my vocabulary in numerous areas while incorporating more advanced, sophisticated grammar when appropriate. Philippe was a great instructor and mentor. I am grateful for the time I was able to learn from him and look forward to refreshing my skills with him in the future."

"I've been taking French class with Philippe twice a week for the past 2 months. My French comprehension and speaking has improved by leaps and bounds. Enough so that my husband who is a native French speaker has commented weekly in how much he has noticed the improvement in my pronounciation and comprehension (and he is VERY hard to please. He doesn't give out complements easily). Philippe has been the catalyst. I had lessons previously and even been in immersion French programs twice. I had learn so much but due to the pandemic being able to do that again was not available. I became frustrated because i felt like even with weekly lessons with another very good teach, I was slipping backward and not progressing like I felt I could. I found Philippe and i am so very grateful. He is very charming and interesting. He pushes me to do better. He has given be exercises between classes that help me improve understanding and comprehension and during class we do different types of listening and conversation so that I am picking up vocabulary, grammar, listening skills and conversation that is becoming more complex. I highly recommend Philippe if your goal is to speak more fluently and to understand. What a pleasure to be able to turn on French TV and be able to pick up more and more each day. Philippe is create in finding all kinds of tools andi information to keep my attention and to advance my skills"

"I had the pleasure of learning higher intermediate/conversational French with Philippe last year for several weeks. I must say that he was the best French professor I ever had. He was extremely meticulous with his approach and took the time to understand my strengths and weaknesses and curated the course based on that. He understood that there were days when I was finding the right words and would take the lead in our conversations. Whereas, other days, he would let me lead the discussions. We discussed on topics related to politics, society, religion, science, travel and business. He was extremely polite, and professional and didn't impose any of his beliefs and stayed true to his goal of helping me improve my French skills. By the end of our session, I was able to make a presentation of my work in international development and global health with him in French. He even helped me translate my poem in French. In addition to providing me with the ears to understand spoken French better, and the ability to speak more correctly, he also immensely helped with grammar topics such as subjunctive, future, and conditional sentences. I provide my highest recommendation of Philippe and assure you that he will make your French learning experience the one to remember."

How to Conjugate “Re” Verbs in French

Practicing verb conjugations is one of the most important parts of foreign language learning. After all, no sentence is really complete if you leave the action out of it. French is a wonderfully expressive language and full of passion, but nothing beautiful is easy to conquer. French conjugation takes this principle to heart, and is peppered with both regular and irregular conjugations that require effort and practice to master. In this article, we will not touch on the irregulars, but we are go …
