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, whom 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 wasn't sure about learning a language in an online environment, but Philippe has done a great job of incorporating multiple tools and interactive components to the online lessons. Also, because he takes a very applied and conversation-based approach to teaching French, I've grown substantially in my language skills over the term. Text books and exercises are good to an extent, but it's in applied conversations that you can really grow your vocabulary and become comfortable with a language.
Whitney
Philippe is a wonderful instructor! He really pushed us to learn beyond the textbook. He also shared helpful resources of different grammar sites, French podcasts, and news websites in French so that we could continue to develop skill sets to have conversations about current topics. I feel much more confident in reading, listening and speaking French than I did when the course started. I have learned a lot from Philippe and had fun while doing so!
Aicha B.
I have known Philippe for about few years as a colleague and so I can attest that he has a lot of professional experience as a French language teacher. He masters French and utilizes effective communication tools to teach. I can assure you that he can help anyone who is seeking to learn a Foreign language, specifically French which is his native language.

Levels taught: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

Russian is my native language, and I can help you with anything from learning the alphabet, to grammar, pronunciation and more advanced skills. In order to make the learning process as informative and interesting as possible, primarily for students, a modern teacher must use additional materials at the lesson. Of course, my materials contain a sufficient amount of learning aids that contribute to a more productive and meaningful assimilation of the new theoretical material. From my experience I can promise you - in a few lessons you will be able to maintain the simplest dialogue and read short stories.

About Irina

Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson
Paul D.
I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!
