Private French Teacher

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

Private French Teacher

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

I am very lucky to have Philippe as French teacher! he is excellent and has helped me to improve my French level tremendously. It is a joy to join his class as he not only teaches us the language but also challenges us to have meaningful discussions and apply all we have learned in real life situations. For me, this is the best way to learn, and also to motivate you to improve your language and thinking skills, which are part of your learning experience. I really look forward to continue to have French classes with him, and highly (highly!!) recommend him as teacher!
Veronica A.
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
Enid
I’ve been working with Philippe Fadi for about a year now and he’s been a very good fit for me as a busy professional also trying to improve her French. He’s very understanding and not intimidating or critical when I make mistakes (even when correcting me). He’s been able to flex to meet my learning style and time limitations with work, which has been much appreciate. Highly recommended.

I've been teaching French for six years and my students have gone on to improve their grade substantially. Within the first few lessons, you'll get a better understanding of the material learned in class or if you are a new beginner, you will be able to read and speak basic French. I use different grammar and reading books depending on your level and make you practice with speaking and written exercises to vary the learning process. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I would be thrilled to meet you!

A great start to Latin. My daughter was very engaged and enjoyed the session tremendously. She came in reluctantly but is now looking forward to her next lesson all thanks to how Janet engaged her and broke down complex concepts into understandable bites.

"Philippe was such a wonderful instructor throughout my time with him. I was resuming French after about a year and a half of informal learning, and he was very accomodating while also pushing me to explore more advanced topics. He uses engaging resources that improve students' verbal, reading, and especially speaking skills. I cannot recommend Philippe enough!"

""Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher."

"Other students have already highlighted Philippe's wonderful assets as a French teacher, but I'd like to chime in to add my own compliments:
Philippe is attentive, encouraging, systematic, and attuned to your specific needs. Class was always productive, but also always enjoyable. I appreciated that he understands my specific language goals, and was serious about getting me there. There were days when we focused on a specific grammatical construct, and others when we just chatted to help me build speaking confidence. I also appreciate that he sends occasional emails with additional resources, websites, or articles in French about topics I am interested in, to encourage me to stretch my language skills beyond the classroom. I am sorry our classes are over for now, but will definitely call on him when I'm ready to hit the next level. Merci pour tout, professeur!"

He also shared helpful resources of different grammar sites, French podcasts, and news websites in French so that we could continue to develop skill sets to have conversations about current topics. I feel much more confident in reading, listening and speaking French than I did when the course started. I have learned a lot from Philippe and had fun while doing so!"
