About Philippe

I am an effective and dedicated tutor who believes only exposure to the language and a shared passion from the tutor and the student create the right context for truly making progress.

My focus is to have you learn the language intuitively, the same way children do, rather than with excessive attention on grammatical rules. Once you are ready for it, I will introduce specific aspects of the language that are meaningful to you. For example, if you like the news, we make a news review part of the lesson. If you like music, I can help you discover French songs and make it an integral part of the learning experience.

It is all about what triggers your interest and motivates you to learn during and outside the lessons.

About me: I am a professional with 15+ years of experience in business, finance, and employee training.

French is my native language. I grew up in the French-speaking part of Belgium (an hour from Paris by train) and would describe my accent as fairly neutral (similar to what you would hear on radio or television news channels). I have been living in the US for the past 20 years, and am a financial controller with a Fortune 500 company with a strong background in corporate training.

Learning another language is a very noble pursuit, and I make the promise to you that not only you will make rewarding progress in a short time, but you will have in me a very strong support in those moments where you feel like it is not happening fast enough.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
