In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whom levels range from beginners to level 4.

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.

My Hindi classes provide the social, political and philosophical contexts of the prose or poetry at hand. Each class is well-structured according to individual needs and paced accordingly too. I often tell interesting facts about the language and everyday life in northern India.

My students feel at ease and look forward to their classes because they are interesting and heavily incorporate things that they relate to. This way Hindi literature remains contemporary and relevant to new generations of readers.

My teaching style is inviting of student participation, supportive and gentle. I work best with individuals aged twelve years and up.

About Shuchi

Teaching Hindi since 1988 when I was a teenager myself, my classes are exciting, replete with interesting information about the people of northern India that it represents. I studied Philosophy (honours) at the University of Delhi, India. I opted for advanced Hindi studies consistently throughout m

Shuchi is a wonderful teacher. Her passion brings out engaging lessons that are both informative and fun. I would recommend her to anyone with an interest in furthering their knowledge of Hindi.

we approached Shuchi Ma'am for Hindi classes as I was poor in that topic and it was an important Final Board exams for me and the marks were crucial. She was very helpful in clearing my concepts and dispelling phobia for Hindi. She has lot of patience and passion for the language. Thanks to her I secured high scores in my final exams.

German started in my extended family and has gradually become a central part of my life. First I studied German for five years in grammar school. Then I traveled to Germany multiple times, and hosted Couschsurfers from Germany and Austria. My nephews are being raised bilingual in English and German, and I have both native and second language German speakers in my nuclear and extended family. Having this broad perspective on how German fits in the landscape of international communication, I can adapt a students' education to fit their needs whether it be in mastering school skills or learning German for travel, work or to build relationships.

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer.

Jonathan is incredibly skilled, a great teacher, fun, and very patient with our gregarious and somewhat distracted 9-year old boy. He has creative, tailored teaching techniques, will try new things, but also keeps our son motivated and progressing. He responds perfectly and patiently to my son when he veers off task, and gets him back on task. We are absolutely thrilled and couldn't have found a better teacher.
Jackie G.
My son has special needs related to an anoxic brain injury. This can create frustration with simple things like learning a new chord that feels funny or is difficult to move your fingers to. He always checks in with us to see what concerns we have and then, helps us by offering suggestions on how to make something easier or less frustrating to learn. I think Jonathan does a good job of meeting us where we are. Jonathan is patient with both of us. Today, he talked to my son about practicing communicating so we can understand how to help him learn. He talked to me about it being ok to break away from the timing and to hit chords at the same time as my son so the song can come together.
Jackie G.
Jonathan is flexible and easy to work with. My son has some struggles as a result of an anoxic brain injury. Jonathan is very understanding and patient with my son. He has also helped me with advice and suggestions on how to work with my son. We love the spirit of the ukulele and the good vibes it has.
