Philippe was an excellent teacher and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to improve or refine their French. He was always prepared for class and made sure to challenge me throughout the lesson. He without a doubt enjoys teaching and will take the time to ensure that you meet your goals.
Phillip, has a wonderful command of French at all levels. He is quite patient. His approach is sensible and tailored to your needs and pace. I truly enjoy and look forward to our sessions.
I recommend Philippe to everyone who wants to take French lessons with a patient, knowledgeable and professional teacher. I have a problem in fluency, and he is working with me on this now.
