About Philip

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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am a French instructor at UMass Boston and taught English as a Foreign Language both in France and in the U.S. My international experience will help you to attain your goals and increase your confidence in communicating in English.

French

I lived in France for many years, and this language has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I enjoy teaching authentic French and combining knowledge of culture and customs with the language skills necessary for learning the language. My experience with teaching French has involved private and public school teaching as well as creating exchange programs between France and the United States. I currently am teaching at UMass Boston.

Grammar

As well as teaching French, I have been an English instructor both in France and in the United States. My background and interest in English grammar will help you attain your goals.

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 ...
