Mélody is an excellent teacher. She is flexible and works according to my needs and is great at explaining grammar rules and pronunciation in a way that I can understand. She is knowledgeable about grammar and how to learn languages and has innovative ideas about how to make learning fun. I highly recommend her as a language tutor! I have been studying with her for the past two years and have seen significant growth as a result of our lessons. She is excellent.

Melody is an energetic, gifted tutor. The conversation is lively and precise. She is careful to explain the subtle meaning of works and phrases. I got to the level I desired with her. Will come back for periodic refreshers.

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.

Nice guy, looking forward to the upcoming classes.

This was the first lesson. Thank you 🙏.
Nicholas
First lesson was good.
James
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.

"Today was my 8 year old Granddaughter's first French lesson.The rating in essence comes from my Granddaughter who after her first lesson was enthusiastic about wanting to schedule two lessons per week as opposed to the one per week which was planned. Evelyne is intelligent and aware at many levels.She is enthusiastic ,friendly, jovial and most of all, understanding and flexible in a potentially challenging situation. We are off to the start that I hoped for.. Thank You so very much Evelyne!"

Cajun French: a Closer Look at the Language

Cajun French, also known as Louisiana French, is the term used to describe the variety of French spoken in South Louisiana. It originates in the language spoken by the French and Acadian people who settled in Louisiana 400 years ago. Where does Cajun French come from ? Who are the Acadians? What is Cajun French? Can I understand Cajun French as a French speaker? To answer those questions we will have to look back in time and understand how the French speakers first arrived in North America …
