Due to my enthusiasm for Foreign languages, I am fluent in French and can read Russian, German, and Spanish. French was my minor and chemistry was my major. I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society based on my achievements in the fields of chemistry and French. I have also enhanced my fluency in French by traveling abroad, including residing in France at the University of Poitiers as well as traveling abroad to Paris, Brussels, and Calais. I look forward to spreading my enthusiasm for foreign languages to others.

Private French Teacher

I am a native french speaker who's been studying and working in french for over 30 years. Not only I have a good exposure to the french language through my professional experience but I am also familiar with french in a school setting. I helped my three kids with their homework throughout middle school and high school. I also volunteered to teach french classes to kids who needed help but couldn't afford it. I enjoy preparing lessons which I customize based on what each student needs focusing on perfecting strengths and improving weaknesses. My teaching method mainly involves patience and encouragement. I will make sure to go over the concepts as many time as needed as well as push you to expand your learning.

Private French Teacher

I am a current private tutor and entrepreneur with 9+ years of experience FEATURED ON FORBES 30 UNDER 30 in 2016.

I strive to not just teach the subject, but also the psychology of elite test-takers, to not just get you ready for one test, but to also teach you the process that allows for repeated & continued success.

With my quadrilingual ability, I created “La Méthode” or in English, The Method, a tutoring style combining the best of the American and the French approachs to learning so that students can learn from world-renowned theories at the same time as they discover more practical examples to delve into.

French is my mother tongue, I have specialized at teaching beginners and more advanced learners the subtlety and style of these languages. In the past, I designed French cultural classes for the U.S. military and translated 200+ expressions to and from English and performed voiceover for 10+ pronunciation videos for a language program.

About Aziz

I have changed environments many times, settling in Paris after living in Morocco for eighteen years then moving to a complete new world, here in the USA. Helped by the fact that I am quadrilingual, I am quite used to interact with people from different backgrounds. While I love helping students un

"Philippe is an incredible teacher!
He is experienced and works well in the current distance-only training environment.  He's a very personable and engaging guy, which can be quite important when you're spending hours a day with someone. :)
But what I consider to be his best trait is his ability to assess the needs of the student and adapt his approach as needed, not just to work more on the areas where the student may need more practice, but to see what is working for a student and what is not and then to be willing to completely change his pedagogy to fit that student. This pedagogical flexibility is indeed rare to find in a teacher and, to me, this is what makes Philippe truly special."

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."

French Lessons in Baltimore, MD

By Allan I. - Baltimore French Teacher

Bonjour tout le monde! Are you looking to take French lessons in Baltimore, MD? That sounds amazing. I have lived in Baltimore for some time now, and I have found a lot of people looking to speak French, too!

Being a native French speaker in the U.S. is an amazing experience. I recommend to everybody to travel abroad to discover another culture and a different lifestyle. There are a lot of differences between France and the U.S, even if they are both Western societies. The differences are especially evident in daily life. Did you know that tipping is not “required” in France, or that you can’t turn right on a red light? Or that Frank Zappa, born in Baltimore, sang a song about France called “In France”?

Here are a few things t

...

hat you need to know before traveling to France and that you can find in Baltimore to help you:

First of all, there are some great local organizations and groups that can really help you while taking French lessons in Baltimore.

1 : The Alliance Française de Baltimore (http://www.afbaltimore.org/)

The Alliance Française de Baltimore has a non-profit network that can help you all around the world, which is something really nice if you are travelling a lot. In Baltimore, this organization does an amazing job teaching and organizing some really cool activities, such as cheese and wine tastings or a Scrabble tournament in French. (This is actually one of the best board games to develop and increase your French vocabulary.) The center also features French movies or lectures.

2: Meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/french-171)

Meetup.com is an excellent way to find new people looking to speak French. People host some different events, such as happy hours or book clubs. Like the Alliance Française, Meetup groups help to gather native French speakers, French-Americans and also Americans seeking to speak French. Members of Meetup groups are always welcoming and really nice.

3: Google Groups (https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!overview)

With Google Groups, you can find almost every kind of group, so why not French groups in Baltimore? They usually meet in someone’s house to share their habits, to talk about the news, and to have a good time.

I think that it is really useful to be part of those organizations if you are looking to improve your French, even while taking French lessons in Baltimore. There is no better way to learn than immersion, and if you are short on traveling to France, Belgium, Canada or Haiti, you can always go to one of these groups.

And how can you develop your French culture and knowledge without talking about French cuisine? There are some restaurants and bakeries in Baltimore that remind me of French cuisine when I miss it.

Start with Petit Louis Bistro and its confit de canard that tastes like my childhood. But, the most important part of the meal is the cheese cart after your meal. You can find some cheeses that you cannot find in a grocery store.

Crêpe Du Jour is also a really good restaurant. Crepes are a specialty of Brittany, but every French person makes crepes for la Chandeleur on February 2nd.

Voila!!! Here are some ways to participate in the French culture in Baltimore. You won’t regret learning or improving your skills in the language of love. It will be useful if you want to learn another Romance language or travel in the south of France!

French Grammar Rules: Reading Le Passé Simple

There is one French verb tense that you will likely only come across in literature, the passé simple. French tutor Carol Beth L. shows you how to recognize and understand this tense... The passé simple is a unique tense in the French language. Perhaps one or two centuries ago, it was commonly used like the simple past in English. For example: J'allai au magasin. I went to the store. Je couru deux kilometres. I ran two kilometers. The passé simple is similar to the simple …

What Are the Differences Between Quebecois and French?

French is a language that has reached over 25 countries and touched many cultures over the centuries. It was the lingua franca before English overtook it, and still remains a formidable language in the international community. Perhaps one of the places on which it maintains a significant stronghold is in Quebec, Canada, and certainly Quebecois is the most well known French-speaking former colony. French settlers established communities there in the 16th and 17th centuries, and the language i …
