Private French Teacher

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

Private French Teacher

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

Philippe is an extremely engaging and patient instructor. I had the pleasure of taking two of his virtual courses, one with about 12 students and one with 5. He was able to teach to everyone's level without leaving anyone behind or boring those with a little more experience. He also made himself available outside of class to answer questions. I believe I made great strides with my French speaking skills because of him.

Philippe is an awesome instructor. I have learned so much from him about French culture that one could just not get from a textbook. He is very encouraging and his teaching style is very nice to work with.
Merci beaucoup Philippe! 😁😁😁

Private French Teacher

I am very familiar with regular, AP, and SAT Subject Test French curricula. In addition to several years of experience tutoring French, I love the language and have spent the past semester conducting most of my historical research in it. It would be my pleasure to provide academic support to elementary, middle, or high school students who would like support with learning this language.

Currently an undergraduate at Harvard, I have long enjoyed sharing both my love of learning and the reserve of strategies that I've build up for overcoming academic challenges. In my experience, successful tutoring hinges on a flexible and dynamic teaching style, honed to each student's unique combination of strengths and struggles. There are many different ways to understand any concept or learn any skill. As a tutor, my goal is to find the unique approach that works for my student; we may not find it on the first go, but it's always there, and we WILL find it! Successful learning also hinges on a ...

Sophia has been my tutor for all essay writing assignments and tasks for the past several years (at least 5 years), which includes coursework and application essays. She is extremely professional, kind, gentle, knowledgeable, and adapts her teaching style in a very tailored way to the student she is working with. In my experience, she is absolutely unique in the way in which she can take the essay content or structure that a student has in mind and, without throwing it out, put herself into the student's reference frame, and guide the student to rework or reframe it into a polished essay; moreover, even when this process requires significant changes, she manages to be empowering of the student the entire time, actually building their confidence while guiding them to improve their work. I say this from significant personal experience receiving exactly this kind of guidance from Sophia. I think part of what allows her to do this is she genuinely remains kind and humble the entire time, so her critiques and guidance are easy to accept and do not come across as harsh or in any way demeaning of the work I had done before meeting with her.

I should also mention that, having read some of her own writing, she is an exceptional writer herself and has significant experience in writing and tutoring analytical, creative, and scientific writing (I have come to her for help with all three types!). She also has a terrific intuition for how to structure an essay in a given context and purpose, which is something I particularly struggle with. As a final note, I would add that Sophia naturally teaches one how to write while guiding you to improve a particular essay, so you end up picking up her skill and experience as you work with her.

Having tried other tutors and attended writing workshops, etc., I can say with confidence that I have never found another writing tutor who comes close to Sophia--including in the quality of the finished products she helps create, degree to which she improves a student's own overall writing and organizational ability, and the way in which she tailors her approach to fit what is needed for a particular student, assignment, and even particular essay draft.

"You won't realize you are learning - challenging and fun!!!!!

I have been working with Phillipe for almost two months. I started with a good command of the langague but needed to improve my fluency for my job. Prior to Phillipe I was completely stressed out with learning French and feeling like I would not succeed. He immediately put all those thoughts to rest, made learning fun, and took the time to understand my goals and how I learn best. He adapted his style to meet them. He made everyday fun and interesting engaging in lively debates and raising my speaking and comprehension levels without me even realizing it. He as a vast library of on-line resources that were great supplements. In two months my fluency increased dramatically, he really took me to the level I need.

Phillipe deserves high praise."
