Phillippe was a wonderful, patient instructor who clearly cares about his students and is dedicated to their learning. He found ways to make learning fun, recommending books articles, websites, tv shows, and movies that would help me learn but also that he knew I would find interesting. Phillippe was flexible and responsive if something wasn’t working and willing to try lots of different techniques to make concepts stick. On top of being naturally capable, Phillippe was just a lovely person to chat and practice speaking with; his interest in the world around him ensured our conversations and classes were never dull. I achieved my language goals after a few months of study with him, and he made the process a pleasure. I would highly recommend him to anyone, and consider myself lucky to have had him as a teacher.Show More
