About JP B.

Bonjour, My name is Jean-Philippe and I have taught French in a variety of settings (small classrooms, larger classrooms and one-on-one settings) for over 25 years. I have taught well over 250 students. Teaching for so many years has allowed me to strengthen my teaching skills and ability to share all the different aspects of the French language with French language learners. I specialize in getting my students to learn how to speak French quickly, and I make it a point to help them accomplish their goals. I am easy-going and flexible, with the ability to adapt to my students' needs and levels, as I focus on result-oriented outcome. I look forward to helping you meet your needs and developing your language proficiency skills.

My daughter said that she really likes your style of teaching. She said that she wishes her French teacher in school was as patient as you!

JP is lovely and a very good teacher! I am a total beginner, and I had a great time in the first lesson learning the alphabet and French pronunciation.
