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.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:

Danielle K.
The first lesson with Meriem was great. I’ve been teaching myself French, and I have some pretty big gaps in basic knowledge. She did a great job helping me figure out what I need to work on. I look forward to more lessons.
Justin
I spent a couple of months having lessons with Meriem and I definitely enjoyed my time. I had some previous knowledge of French words and phrases from various online tools but I lacked the insight that an actual instructor could bring. It was extremely beneficial to talk to someone who could correct me and help me learn. I hope that I can start my lessons again soon.
Rocio S.
I loved my first lesson. Meriem encouraged me to use my French and I felt little by little more confident in the conversation. Looking forward to our next lesson.

SPECIAL AREAS: IB study and exams, comprehensible input

GROUPS: Small groups are possible, please let me know how many you wish to have in your group and I can make the appropriate arrangements.

I am a professional public school teacher, and have been tutoring and teaching since 2013. I have worked primarily with teens and adults, but welcome all ages to join me in their learning adventure.

I'm happy to say that I am a very flexible teacher. Together we will find the best way for you to learn and feel successful in French. Specifically, I speak of two main options: traditional school learning and a method called comprehensible input.

*Traditional learning is something you're probably familiar with and may have experienced in learning a lesson. This is the textbook, worksheet, grammar repetition version of learning. For some people, this works for them. This is how I learned French, and some find success with it. However, if you've ever felt this wasn't the best method for you (or ...

I have received my DELF B2 and I am currently teaching French online to students. I can help you if you are a complete beginner or lower intermediate and looking to take lessons with a native English speaker to help understand the nuances of the French language. I lived in France for 6 months and Morocco for two years, so I have experience using this language.

"Philippe is truly a phenomenal instructor. His classes are thoughtfully constructed and carefully tailored to his student's needs. He constantly assessed my strengths and weaknesses and routinely made adjustments to our agenda to help me progress. I felt like not a single moment was wasted in any of our sessions.

On a personal level, I found Philippe to be extremely likable and a very pleasant person. Some of our most enjoyable class moments were just discussing life experiences and sharing views on the world. He has a lot of wisdom to impart beyond simply teaching the French language.

Perhaps the most helpful insight into who Philippe is as a teacher- and as a person- occurred when our class had to be cancelled because a new Federal Holiday was approved the night before and we were not authorized to work on an official holiday. Given the short notice of the cancellation, the class hours would still be counted and he would be paid in full for the day despite not actually teaching. Knowing my final assessment was coming up the following week, Philippe still worked with me for nearly 6 hours that day, pro bono, simply out of the kindness of his heart and his commitment to his students' success. This truly shows what kind of teacher he is.

When I took my language assessment at the end of our sessions together, I significantly exceeded expectations based on the number of class hours I took. I fully attribute this to the quality of instruction I received from Philippe. I recommend him in the strongest of terms."
