About Philip


Bio

I am a fluent French speaker and have taught both in France and the United States. My goal is to make my students comfortable with the French language so that they can function in another country and understand the culture as well. I have worked with middle and high school levels as well as adults looking to increase their speaking and writing skills.

I am a fluent French speaker and have taught both in France and the United States. My goal is to make my students comfortable with the French language so that they can function in another country and understand the culture as well. I have worked with middle and high school levels as well as adults looking to increase their speaking and writing skills.

If you need tutoring services to help you feel more confident in your French knowledge or need a person to help you enjoy travel in French speaking countries, I will be glad to assist you. My teaching style is based on using the language in a real way and helping my students to enjoy as they learn.

When I taught in France, I was actually teaching English to French students. I am equally committed to helping international students who are learning English as a second language. Language learning is an exciting adventure, and I look forward to helping all my students to become proficient and confident learners.

Knowledgeable and Prepared Tutor

Philip has been a pleasure to work with over the past 5 months. He has provided so much insight on the French language and culture, which can't be learned from a textbook alone. He is prepared for each meeting and is always bringing fun activities for us to do such as various readings (Le Petit Prince and la Fontaine's fables), magazine articles, and work sheets he creates himself. We have covered so much in the past few months, which includes grammar, vocabulary, business phone calls and meeting etiquette, making appointments etc. I look forward to our meetings every weekend. Thanks so much Philip!
