Other students have already highlighted Philippe's wonderful assets as a French teacher, but I'd like to chime in to add my own compliments:
Philippe is attentive, encouraging, systematic, and attuned to your specific needs. Class was always productive, but also always enjoyable. I appreciated that he understands my specific language goals, and was serious about getting me there. There were days when we focused on a specific grammatical construct, and others when we just chatted to help me build speaking confidence. I also appreciate that he sends occasional emails with additional resources, websites, or articles in French about topics I am interested in, to encourage me to stretch my language skills beyond the classroom. I am sorry our classes are over for now, but will definitely call on him when I'm ready to hit the next level. Merci pour tout, professeur!
Shawn
I've had the opportunity to take several online French language classes over the years, as well as in-person tutoring. I'd easily rank Philippe among the best I've had, as he readily adjusted to my pace of learning and desired learning objectives, pushed me to improve but didn't force his own agenda, and maintained a great, positive, and motivating attitude throughout our experience. The next time I'm doing online classes I will unhesitatingly connect with him, and I'd happily recommend him to anyone else looking to learn French, whether to begin or to refine their existing French.
Raju Adhikari
I had the pleasure of learning higher intermediate/conversational French with Philippe last year for several weeks. I must say that he was the best French professor I ever had. He was extremely meticulous with his approach and took the time to understand my strengths and weaknesses and curated the course based on that. He understood that there were days when I was finding the right words and would take the lead in our conversations. Whereas, other days, he would let me lead the discussions. We discussed on topics related to politics, society, religion, science, travel and business. He was extremely polite, and professional and didn't impose any of his beliefs and stayed true to his goal of helping me improve my French skills. By the end of our session, I was able to make a presentation of my work in international development and global health with him in French. He even helped me translate my poem in French. In addition to providing me with the ears to understand spoken French better, and the ability to speak more correctly, he also immensely helped with grammar topics such as subjunctive, future, and conditional sentences. I provide my highest recommendation of Philippe and assure you that he will make your French learning experience the one to remember.

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 ...

"Many tutors are competent and knowledgeable in their subjects, some are also very good teachers as well. However, very few tutors are innovative in their teaching approach. Maurice is just that. He talked to my son and figured out not only what my son does not know, but even more importantly, what his learning style is and the best customized way to deliver missing knowledge to him. Maurice went outside the subject matter and used learning games and tricks to efficiently deliver the info to make sure my son also retained that knowledge. No one has unlimited time and resources; it is very important to me that they are used wisely and efficiently. Thank you, Maurice, for helping us."
