Bonjour!

I grew up about twenty minutes from the border with France and got to go there regularly from early on. I started learning French when I was 12 and started teaching it when I was 15 because, believe it or not, I enjoy the sometimes weird grammatical complexities of French.

At university I took advanced classes to continue learning and when I went to study in Canada I lived in a shared house with six native speakers of Canadian and European French. This year I spent the spring in Morocco and Togo where I got to experience two more varieties French.

I consider myself highly Francophile, enjoy reading in French and take pleasure in teaching it. Explaining grammar, spelling, pronunciation and difficult features of the language are my assets as I have been largely successful in sharing them with students, friends and acquaintances over the years.

Allons-y! :)

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.

Private French Teacher

I teach French since 1973. I am a French native speaker and I do teach and tutor privately. I did teach in schools since November 2016-July 2017 at the Fort Bend Christian Academy. My students were 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders. My teaching experience started teaching my students about Le Petit Prince. This marvelous story caught on very fast the imagination and desire to learn French in all my students. Never failed! I teach students to speak French and not to just read from a book.
I have always been a member of the Alliance Francaise in Curacao and I did study methodology on how to teach French as second language at the French island of Guadeloupe, at L'Ecole Normale, at Pointe-a-Pitre, in 1975, sent by the Alliance Francaise of Curacao.

Bonjour à tous! Hey y'all! Born and raised in Geneva, Switzerland, French is my native language. I'm specialized in adult teaching and critical care nursing, I worked more than 20 years with adults, children and families in Switzerland and in Montreal, Canada. Finding the best way to learn depending on who you are and what goals you have is one of my specialties. I like to provide a dynamic, fun and customized learning environment to my students.
Having learnt multiple second languages, such as English, Italian, Spanish and German, I’m myself very aware of the process of learning a new language.
I can provide vocabulary, grammar, verbs, conversation as well as cultural aspects from different French speaking countries, such as Switzerland, France, Quebec and Belgium.
I moved to Richmond four years ago, bringing many French books and ressources that could be used during lessons.

I was totally unprepared today, sadly. I didn’t cancel. I told Evelyn up front that I wasn’t prepared. She said, “No problem.” Evelyn was an Olympic Champion! She worked really hard to make the lesson meaningful, and smooth for me. I hung up feeling super great! I was successful, I learned a lot, because of her. She is a really talented teacher. I feel blessed.

"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."

"Professor Fadi is a wonderful teacher who runs a very interactive class. He is extremely helpful and encouraging and though his classes can be challenging, they are also very rewarding and fun. He encourages students to role play, which has helped all of us become more comfortable with our vocabulary and offers a different way to learn the language. He also provides additional resources both in and out of class to assist students with learning the materials and is always available to assist with questions. He's a wonderful professor."

French Jokes to Make You Laugh

Humor is one of those concepts that is impossible to translate literally. So much more depends on the jokes told than the mere words used. Nuances and cultural context add invisible layers that can trip non-native speakers up. In the past, when I watched humoristes (comedians) with my family and even when I understood the words, often, the punchline fell flat. I’d sit there wondering how those around me were giggling. As time passed, I began to find myself also amused as opposed to bewildered. …
