This is my first experience with an online tutor and I could not be more pleased. Philippe has pushed me and in a few lessons, I can feel my confidence gaining. I have enjoyed his instruction so much that I plan on continuing with him in the next fiscal year! When I felt a bit overwhelmed with work and an overseas move, he was incredibly accommodating and adjusted our course of instruction so I could keep up. If you are looking for a thoughtful, considerate, and insightful instructor, search no more! He's your guy.
Philippe is incredible!!! My son thoroughly enjoys his class and told me "This teacher is really helpful! He goes from the fundamentals to harder concepts and makes it easier versus my schoolteacher!" Thank you Philippe!
A fun and interesting teacher! I had classes that ran 5 hours at a time, and he kept things moving and interesting. He helped me learn and corrected me politely. A great experience. I highly recommend him.
