Level 1:

You only know the alphabet, and you can't write or speak a word yet. Not a problem, we can go through the basics to get you comfortable.After the first lesson, you'll already know how to have a simple conversation (introduce yourself, ask for directions or order a dish for instance.

You can speak the few sentences that you remember from school, but not enough to feel at ease across the pond. Key ...

Samir is dedicated, patient, reliable and fun! He provides helpful material between our online sessions, and I feel I'm learning at just the right pace. I highly recommend him.
Kahina
Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

*****Your progress begins as you are reading this intro*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program: 

1 Making the right choice requires two things. First, collect the info:  Watch my videos, read my profile and my reviews.  I provide a well structured curriculum,    various sets of input and comprehensible grammar sheets which are all included.  Second, try a few classes and see if you get the feeling "I like this guy and I trust he can help" because YES: chemistry is important since it creates a special bond that will help us achieve our goals.
2 Always record your sessions so you can stay focused during your interaction with the teacher because that’s when the real learning is happening. After you can watch it and take notes. This approach has proved itself as the most efficient way to improve retention. All those tons of material will be well organized in your notebook and in your head. It’s like you are creating your own textbook which ...

What makes French lesson unique is because it is a beautiful and complex language. Its pronunciation and sound are amazing. My students will learn the vocabulary, verbs, adjectif, adverb, and grammar combined together to help them understand and build their own French sentences with confidence. I learned French from High School for more than 12 years. I can speak it, read it and write it. I will teach with empathy meaning that I will use my strategies into my students shoes to help them understand and succeed.

"Philippe is a fantastic instructor and a wonderful, genuine person. From our first class together he accurately assessed my level and understood what my goals were for French learning, and he adapted my classes accordingly. I looked forward to every class we had—not only because I could see huge improvements in my language capability, but also because I loved talking with him! He is kind, warm and patient and encouraged me not only in my French language ability but also in life. After our classes ended together, I felt more confident in French conversation than I ever had, and I achieved the highest reading score of my French-speaking career! I would highly recommend Philippe."
