Andrew
Philippe has all the hallmarks of a great instructor- patient, engaging. He was great at sharing resources of different grammar sites, French podcasts, and news websites so that we could continue to develop our abilities outside of sessions.

There were plenty of times after working virtually all day, the last thing I wanted was to look at a screen, but our exercises were captivating. That speaks to his approach.
Also, he's judicious with his feedback which I appreciate.

Merci Philippe!
gretchen
Phillippe finds a way to make every class entertaining! The time went by fast and I learned a ton!
Monty
I am an older learner and Philippe has great patience with me even though it is a bit harder to pick up some of the language concepts as my younger classmates.

Philippe tailored our learning to not be from a book but used role-playing exercises to use French in a more realistic, fun, yet non-threatening manner.

I hope to have him again as an instructor and highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn French.

Eric Y.
While I was skeptical at first about the effectiveness of online vocal instruction, I decided to take singing lessons with Josh to pass the time during the COVID lockdown. What I received went far beyond my expectations, as Josh went out of his way to offer me a tailored experience centered on the vocal techniques I wanted to train. Josh had great energy, great communication, and great analogies - highly recommended!
Darius H.
Joshua makes every lesson exciting and educational. He's very encouraging and creates a productive yet safe space, which allowed me to feel comfortable in my not so excellent singing moments. I am absolutely amazed by the grow he's helped me achieve in such a short amount of time.

My 12 year old daughter looks forward to every lesson, because each lesson is unique and inspiring. He is patient and knowledgeable. He brings out the best in my child.

I wasn’t sure how well virtual lessons would work out but we see huge and consistent improvements in her skills and she has so much fun! Mr. Mike really knows how to effectively communicate with the kids and parents. Highly recommend him!"

"Daniel is an interactive tutor who is very helpful with any calculus problems you have. He helped me study for my math test by going through problems step by step with me, which allowed me to understand the concepts at hand. He made sure that I actually understood the process by asking me questions, so it wasn’t only memorization but actual grasping of the way to solve problems. I definitely recommend Daniel to anyone who would like help with their calculus!"

He is in third grade and they've been covering 4th grade material which allows him to get ahead of the curve."
