I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.

Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.

Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. 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 emphasis speaking over all. 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.

Mr Fadi is very welcoming and professional. Our first lesson was conducted at my pace and the course outline was discussed. He provides multiple resources to aid in learning and really cares about understanding the language versus regurgitating phrases. I look forward to working with him!

Private French Teacher

Living in France for 8 years now and having completed my Master's in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly.

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

"Bonjour, I highly recommend Philippe as a professor for French learners at any level, but particularly for new learners. I felt that I made huge progress as he was able to identify the weaknesses in either my vocabulary, sentence structure, and grammar, and then explain and help me understand how to overcome those weaknesses. He accommodated my pace of learning, was always encouraging, and simply "got it" in terms of what I needed to stay motivated and moving forward. Working with him was a pleasure and you can be certain that a new French speaker will feel accompanied, fully supported, and will walk away having made great progress. Merci."

"For the advanced language practice I was looking for, it was certainly appreciated.

Philippe has all the hallmarks of a great instructor- patient, engaging. There were many days after finishing work virtually, the last thing I wanted to do was look at a screen. Yet classes were enjoyable and captivating, that's a testament to Philippe's approach. I was surprised how my speaking and listening skills improved, and how comfortable I became with them.

The only reason I give four stars is because I reserve it for exceptional instruction (I still have not given five stars). Philippe is definitely a great teacher.

Merci, Philippe!"
