Brian
Lessons with Philippe are a true pleasure. He is well-read, articulate, and funny. He takes the time to get to know his students and focuses the lessons around conversations and areas of interest. I have experienced immense improvement to my vocabulary and grammar, as well as in my confidence to speak and "think in French." I most appreciate that Philippe is not shy about providing useful feedback or recognizing hard work and improvement. Would highly recommend.
Nox
I have been studying french with Philippe since October 2020 and have seen a remarkable improvement in my french. He is a very diligent teacher who makes the class very interesting. He tailors it to the student's interests and is easily able to identify areas that require improvement and focus on that. He has helped me with grammar, reading, and listing. I would highly recommend end him for anyone serious about improving french.
Charles
I take lessons with Mr. Philippe, and I am extremely impressed by his teaching method. I have previously taken French classes with different institutions and numerous instructors, and I evaluate Philippe as being one of the best if not the best instructor I have ever had. I base it on the way I am currently performing with all 3 skills (Speaking, Reading , and Writing). The best part is that I feel relaxed and confident in class. Philippe knows how to work with a student to get the best out of you, without affecting confidence. Tremendous skill. I highly recommend Philippe as an instructor for French.

Spanish Language, lessons and tutoring. I have taught, tutored and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus for years. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and at the college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a ...

With about 13 years of experience as a Physics Teacher, one of my passions in life is the opportunity to share knowledge constantly, as well as, to help individuals eager to improve even when some details appear to be insignificant. At the age of 19, I formally started working as a professor of Exact Sciences at the Stephen W. Hawking Institute in Ecuador, my home country. We all should be determined to find an objective/career that would be our passion and reflects our life goal as well. This perspective encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to move to USA thanks to an Ecuadorian scholarship which financed the commencement of my journey in Environmental Eng. focusing on Nanotechnology at Vincennes Univ. IN. There, I had a training at different Departments as a STEM, English and Spanish tutor; which eventually, gave me the chance to learn about the teaching-learning process of Higher Level Physics Classes from Basic Classes as General Physics I (included Lab.) ,to Physics for ...
