Online French Teacher

I've been teaching French for 14 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! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

Online French Teacher

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. 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 emphasis speaking over all. 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.

Philippe is a wonderful French teacher. We've been doing French for several months and my language abilities have noticeably improved. He knows your limits and when to push past them. Not only is he a great teacher, he's also hilarious, which makes making mistakes more funny than embarrassing.
Joy
Philippe is a great teacher. I am trying to regain my French and get to the point of conversation. He is always looking for ways that fit the way I learn and is always encouraging and enthusiastic.
Michele
Philippe truly has been the best instructor I have had for French. He always treated me with respect and kept the course work fresh and interesting. He used a variety of techniques and was intuitive enough to know what worked best for me. He was patient and never pushed beyond my patience! He exceeds expectations, always sending additional resources outside of the course. He's available whenever you need him. He's kind, generous, and I can't wait to start another course with Philippe!

She is always very helpful, attentive, kind, and makes learning fun and memorable!!
Alissar
Roula is a one of a kind instructor! It also doesn't hurt that she is funny and makes you laugh. She is detail oriented and able to adapt to your way of learning.

I appreciate that she proactively checks in to make sure her style of teaching is working for you and adjusts accordingly.

It was very difficult for me to find an instructor who is certified to teach AND who also specializes in teaching Arabic spoken in the Levant and Lebanon. If you are also looking for this particular specialty, Roula is the instructor you need.

Thank you Roula!

With patience, effort and good guidance, learning a foreign language is POSSIBLE!! My goal is your goal and I' m here for you.

The best instructor ever, super professional. Sometimes I see videos of her online, she is so good that it makes you want to cry.
John
Our son has now had three lessons with Julia and says he has already learned so much. He is excited for his weekly time with her. She, herself, is a talented bassoonist who demonstrates what she is asking of him (practicing what she preaches) and plays alongside him. Her instruction is exceptionally delivered and, therefore, well received. She is teaching music theory, technique, and performance all in one. We are so excited to have found her!

"I am taking a course with Pascale through a university continuing education program. It is a perfect course for anyone who would like to visit France because Pascale is helping us to develop the practical, everyday language skills we need. For example, we learn vocabulary related to shopping for food at a market and we learn how to interact with a hotel reservation desk. Pascale is helping us to build vocabulary and create good sentence structure. The best part is the way Pascale is able to make the learning process enjoyable. I would recommend her."
