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'm into my second month of weekly guitar lessons with Brett and can't believe how well I am playing already!! I've had some basic guitar lessons in the past but still very much a beginner. Brett knew precisely where to start and what I needed next to advance my playing, and broke it down into attainable steps. So far I've learned a good handful of strum patterns; I can finally play two songs pretty well and sing along; and I am in the rudimentary stage of learning to finger pick. Really love the fact that beautiful sounds are coming from my instrument! Highly recommend if you're ready to make the commitment to becoming a capable player.
Charlie E.
What a terrible experience. I signed up for lessons for my wife from Brett as a gift because he listed times that would work for my wife given that we have a young daughter, and have a hard time making time for lessons. Brett told us 3 days before the lesson that the time wouldn't work, then simply never showed for the rescheduled first lesson. Worse, he simply refused to do scheduling via email (he would leave voicemails and failed to return my wife's call when she called back as they were playing phone tag), and then told us he had another commitment during the slot we had supposedly reserved for him. Worse, he failed to update the site as he continually cancelled lessons and never showed up for scheduled times. I now have a huge hassle of getting a refund on the money I paid for lessons as opposed to a lovely gift for my wife. Life's too short and we're too busy for such an awful experience.

Great teacher for my young daughter

Brett has been a great teacher for my 5 year old daughter. She is just learning the basics of piano and Brett has been great at expanding her skill sets. She really enjoys practicing with him and actually looks forward to when he comes over every week!
