I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Elsa is absolutely wonderful with our child. She's attentive, supportive and always fun!
More than knowing french language and culture, Elsa can also explain the nuances in language and culture between english and french.
Every class is a joy and we look forward to many more.
Alexia M.
I've only had three classes but feel I've already learned so much. Learning a new language can be intimidating but Elsa is patient and very kind throughout the process. I was worried about sounding silly but she encourages you every step of the way. She really is a great teacher!!

Bonjour et Enchanté

My name is Fabrice and I am excited that you are considering French lessons with me.

French is not just a beautiful language, it is a culture and people rich in Liberté, Egalité, and Fraternité. With all of my students, we not only explore the richness of the language but also the expansiveness and depth of the culture, people, and of course the country.

I am confident in my ability to help you learn French in easy and fun lessons. I have helped students of all ages, most of whom have little to no experience with the language. Today, many of these, same, students are well versed in conversational French and able to read, write, speak, and explore the language and culture in ways they didn’t imagine. I have also worked with students who have a good understanding of the language and wish to brush-up on their skills or work to perfect the language as a native speaker.

I apply numerous strategies that will depend on how you like to learn, however, I ...

Fabrice is the ultimate French teacher. He’s a native speaker who brings, not only language, but wonderful tidbits of French culture to learning experience. He has geared tutoring sessions to meet my needs and interests. He is knowledgeable, interesting and funny. You won’t be disappointed!
Jon
I started taking French lessons with Fabrice three years ago when I was planning a trip to France to visit my in-law’s. After about three weeks, I had the confidence and basic language skills to feel comfortable speaking to native French speakers. About one month before my trip, I was speaking French pretty much fluently. Fabrice is personable, kind and very passionate about teaching French. His strategies, weekly challenges and attention to detail really have made this an enjoyable experience that I have continued with him for the past 3 years. Merci beaucoup Fabrice for being an awesome, qualified and competent French teacher. I recommend Fabrice without hesitation.

Laura
I have been taught French by Fabrice for over a year. After trying several different ways and programs to learn French over the past 4 years, I now know how valuable a good teacher in a foreign language is. I chose Fabrice on purpose because he is French and has a French accent that is easy to understand. He is awesome! Fabrice is always meeting my need where it is with written, spoken, and visual aids along with tips and shortcuts where appropriate. He is very astute at assessing my weaknesses and building on my strengths and always patient. I am not only learning the language, I am learning the culture. Fabrice is highly recommended!

Online 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.

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.
Randy
You won't realize you are learning - challenging and fun!!!!!

I have been working with Phillipe for almost two months. I started with a good command of the langague but needed to improve my fluency for my job. Prior to Phillipe I was completely stressed out with learning French and feeling like I would not succeed. He immediately put all those thoughts to rest, made learning fun, and took the time to understand my goals and how I learn best. He adapted his style to meet them. He made everyday fun and interesting engaging in lively debates and raising my speaking and comprehension levels without me even realizing it. He as a vast library of on-line resources that were great supplements. In two months my fluency increased dramatically, he really took me to the level I need.

Phillipe deserves high praise.

I've been teaching French for 11 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

From the start it was clear, Elsa is a highly skilled and accredited teacher for children. Each lesson starts with a song which kick starts my son’s engagement. The hour-long class has a fun pace to it and is well structured to balance learning & fun. Elsa is also very kind and good humored which makes my son relish his classes. Watching him gain confidence in his French language skills has been so rewarding. I am extremely grateful to have found such an exceptional French tutor as Elsa."

"My son Nicholas (10 months old) and I have been taking French classes with Elsa since February and she is an absolutely delightful and effective French teacher. I really enjoy her classes as does my little boy. He enjoys the songs, the games, and the colors immensely and hears native French while he plays! I enjoy practicing the French I already know, learning new vocabulary and learning new games to play with my child in a language I have come to love.

Elsa is a very cheerful young lady, wonderful with Nicholas, and has a real talent for explaining French grammar and the nuances between French and English. I enjoy getting to ask her my questions and benefit from her knowledge on an adult level, just as I enjoy watching her engage with my son on his level. She is clearly very experienced in teaching young children and makes learning lots of fun for them. Anyone looking to learn French themselves and have their child begin French at an early age will really benefit from Elsa's classes."
