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.

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?!

Bonjour!
Je m'appelle Sophie. I am excited to teach you French using comprehensible input (CI). Comprehensible input means that I will make French understandable to you using French! The idea is to emulate how you learned your first language~ with repetition of structures and vocabulary used in different ways. From day one, you will begin to generalize how the language works. Each subsequent lesson will build on previous lessons so generalized concepts keep getting stronger while you learn new things.

In a typical lesson, I will start by explaining the meaning of each structure and defining all of the vocabulary for the lesson. These new concepts will be woven into a story that we will read, practice, and personalize. If you already are in a language program and need tutoring, or have specific things you want to work on, I will be happy to assist you there.

About me~ I grew up speaking French as my parents made their way to California when I was little. I don't remember learning

About Sophie

Bonjour! Come explore the French language with me! I am excited to teach you in a natural, proven, fun technique using Comprehensible Input. My French parents immigrated to the US when i was little, so I grew up immersed in a French home. I studied French through high school and college and years

I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.

I've been working on my French weekly with Bene for the past couple months. It's been a lovely experience so far. Her classes have really helped me discover the French language and culture in a new way.

Bene is a very patient, creative, and dedicated teacher, and she's done an amazing job tailoring classes around my personal language goals. Every class, we work on expanding my vocabulary, improving conversational fluency and reading comprehension, with a bit of grammar practice built it as well.

I'd highly recommend Bene as a French tutor!

She is very reliable and was always patient with the kids. Her love of children was clearly visible at all times. Perhaps more importantly, the children adored her too. Her intelligence, caring nature, sense of humour and her ability to adapt very quickly to the children’s needs makes it easy to highly recommend her for tutoring."
